Verizon Moto in August

Verizon will match AT&T's upcoming plans for a series of new phones this month from Motorola and other handset producers, according to snapshots of a private presentation. The ROKR Z6tv is now confirmed and will be the first American-designed phone with support for V CAST TV broadcasts; the device should also be joined by the RAZR2 V9m and the previously unannounced Q9m, which brings Windows Mobile 6 and many other enhancements of the GSM-only Q9h to CDMA networks.

At least two other phones from some of Verizon's other frequent partners will be available, the slide notes. The Samsung i760 now has a more definitive release window and should appear in the next few weeks with its unique side-by-side directional and number pads. UTStarcom will also participate and should finally offer Verizon an equivalent to the Sprint Mogul through the UTStarcom XV6800, which will share the same EVDO Rev. A enhanced Internet access, the 2-megapixel camera, and Windows Mobile 6 Professional.

Final contract pricing for the phones and their exact release dates are currently unknown but should be made public soon. [via Engadget]
