The HTC Imagio is coming to Verizon later this month (October 6). I'm definitely looking forward to seeing other Windows Mobile phones on Verizon. This one will be the first one to be released with Windows Mobile 6.5. We should also see Windows Mobile 6.5 upgrades for the Touch Pro2.
Speaking of the Touch Pro2, could I live without the hardware keyboard on my HTC Touch Pro2? Probably. However, the keyboard really typing much more efficient when I'm doing a lot of typing.
When will we see the next version of the Samsung Omnia on Verizon? It should also be interesting to also see some Google Android based smartphones later this fall.
