It's not just HTC pushing out Windows Mobile 6.5.3 smartphones despite Windows Phone 7 being due at the end of the year. Details of a new LG handset, the LG VS750, have emerged, which will apparently launch on Verizon's network come mid-April 2010. A touchscreen slider with a full QWERTY keyboard, the VS750 will support global roaming with EVDO Rev.A for use in the US and quadband GSM with UMTS/HSPA for when owners are abroad.
Windows Mobile runs on a 3.2-inch WVGA resistive touchscreen and there's WiFi b/g, Bluetooth and a 3.2-megapixel camera with VGA video recording. Memory is 512MB flash and 256MB RAM, along with a microSD slot content with up to 16GB cards.
Details of Verizon's upcoming smartphones have leaked, and if you've been waiting for a new WebOS, Android or Windows Mobile device from the carrier then you're in luck. The Palm Pre Plus, Motorola Devour A555 and LG VS750 have all been tipped as arriving over the next few months by PhoneArena's tipsters, though right now details on all three are reasonably minimal. It's unclear, for instance, what the difference between the Sprint Palm Pre and the Verizon Palm Pre Plus might be.
