    A river of rumored low and mid-range handsets flows toward Verizon : Boy Genius Report

    Now before you get too excited about the bevy of rumored handsets listed below, we want to be extra clear in stating that this is rumor. A definite rumor. A steaming pile of rumor. And so on. While the source of this list has proven somewhat reliable in the past, it is also a bit loose at times with tipster-sourced information. Ok, enough with the disclaimer… Feast your eyes on a laundry list of low and mid-range handsets (and the Storm 2) reportedly headed to Verizon in the near future:

    * LG Chocolate Touch VX8575 - Full touchscreen, might be like the BL40
    * BlackBerry Storm 2 9550 - October-November release
    * Nokia Shade 2705 - Replaces the Mirage 2605
    * Nokia Twist 7705 - This might be the swivel-style phone that has been rumored for months.
    * Palm Treo 800W - “Even though this was released for Sprint last year, Verizon may not have it out until February 2010.”
    * Motorola Entice (or Harmony) W766 - Replaces the W755
    * Samsung Rogue U960 - Replaces the Glyde U940, expected in August
    * Samsung U450 - Verizon Mobile TV-compatible
    * Samsung Strut U440 - QWERTY handset
    * Samsung Omnia-II i920 - Due out by Christmas

    Now if somehow I can flash a better firmware on to my 800w, or an 800w comes out with better hardware that I can flash it from RED to YELLOW, I'd be very glad. Considering the 800w has been retired, I'm very hesitant to believe this.

    That would be silly for Verizon to add the 800 next year.

    Maybe they'll fix the friggin' GPS.

    Verizon passed on the 800 months before Sprint took it on. In fact if you search into a few folders in Windows you will find a Verizon splash screen.

    They would be stupid to release an outdated phone. I doubt Palm will do any revisions. Pass.

    Why would Verizon want to punish its customers like Sprint did?

    Maybe I can sell my old 800w to Verizon. HAH!
