I'm at home today with a sick wife helping take care of the kids, so I had time to take the transformer quiz [via Guy Burstein].

Verizon Rumor Stackup

Posted in Gadgets | Windows Mobile at Thursday, August 16, 2007 1:21 AM Pacific Daylight Time

So supposedly Verizon is coming out with a bunch of new Windows Mobile phones in the next few months. When I started working for Avanade I switched from Verizon to T-Mobile since at the time the company didn't have a contract with Verizon but also because Verizon has always been pretty lacking when it comes to Windows Mobile phones. So now that my company has a contract with Verizon and Verizon looks to be coming out with a bunch of cool phones, I think I'm ready to switch back. TMO's painfully slow EDGE network just doesn't cut it anymore. So which phone from the Verizon Rumor Roundup should I buy? Here is a nice SizeEasy stackup of the rumored phones and their rumored sizes:

I was really leaning toward the i760 since it has the numbers on the front (which I really like) and looks a lot nicer than the HTC phones (I really dislike motorola phones). However, sizing it up next to the 5800 shows that it is quite a bit bigger. Of course these specs are just rumored specs so they could be off. The other items that has me leaning toward the 5800 is that unlike the rumor roundup, my verizon rep has the 5800 coming out before the i760.

Which phone do you like and are these new phones making you think about switch to VZW?
