Any chance of true 9700 based Bold coming to VZW?
 
With the release of the Tour based 9650 on VZW and varying reports of poor battery life, I'm wondering if there is any possibility of a true 9700 based Bold coming to VZW?



[I've currently got an AT&T 9000 Bold and would like to upgrade to a device w/ better battery life and if possible CDMA/GSM coverage such as the 9650. I need a world phone, and would like to use the VZW network domestically, but some of the poor battery life reports on the 9650 seem like a non-starter for me.]

Thanks

Doubtful. Have you tried a Google search?

The 9700 will never be available for Verizon Wireless.

What about Torch on Verizon?

Your guess is a s good as any ones. There could be a variant but probably not a 9800, maybe Storm 3 or 5.

Most likely not since the torch is an AT&T exclusive, much like the Storm for VZW.

Or at least not anytime soon.

I think we will eventually see something similiar to Torch with Verizon. maybe 1G

Nothing wrong with the 9650.
