Today Verizon announced that the Motorola Z6c World Edition slider will go on sale starting December 12. The Z6c is similar in most respects to the Z6tv, but drops the V CAST Mobile TV capability for world-wide roaming. It has both CDMA/EV-DO and GSM radios on board so customers can roam when traveling overseas. It has a 2 Megapixel camera, stereo Bluetooth, QVGA screen and supports microSD cards up to 4GB. Verizon's international roaming rates will be either $1.29 or $2.49 per minute depending on which country you are calling from. Text messages will cost 25 cents each. The Z6c will be available for $179 after $50 rebate and new agreement.

Verizon is only promising calling and two-way texting capabilities in GSM areas, which would neither require GPRS nor EDGE. All of the other data features, including Mobile Web and picture messaging, are listed on their web page as CDMA only. Thus, I ...

great option for those who travel abroad and still want the best network at home.
hopefully works better than the Moto A840 world phone. Cool~
those rates seem really that about what you pay for Int'l roaming?
