HTC Ozone lands at Verizon with $50 price tag

HTC Ozone at Verizon

Verizon today undercut the QWERTY smartphone field by launching the low-price HTC Ozone. The adapttion of the HTC Snap already at Sprint brings a different look but more importantly adds world roaming; while at home it uses CDMA and EVDO Rev A for calls and 3G, it has quad-band GSM and EDGE support for calls and 2G data in most parts of the world. Verizon-specific software also gives the phone Visual Voice Mail and support for VZ Navigator.

The Windows Mobile 6.1 smartphone otherwise follows the reference features given by HTC with a 2-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi and a microSDHC slot that holds up to 16GB. Verizon has clearly signaled its intent to compete on price and is selling the Ozone for $50 after signing a two-year contract and receiving a $70 rebate. Orders start online on June 29th, but retail shoppers will have to wait until July 13th.
