The Motorola A4500 for Verizon has been revealed in documents on the FCC web site. This slab-style smartphone is similar to the Q9m/Q9c, but with numerous upgrades, including quad-band GSM world roaming, Wi-Fi, fingerprint scanner, and a 2-megapixel camera. Features in common with the Q9m/Q9c include EVDO data, stereo Bluetooth, memory card slot, voice command, and a QWERTY keyboard. The A4500 appears to run Windows Mobile 6.1 Standard. The A4500 has yet to be announced by Verizon or Motorola.

Here's A Great Opportunity For Verizon

With the phone being quad-band, it conceivably could roam on domestic GSM networks. Since Verizon (CDMA in general) has such great coverage anyway, why not forge additional roaming agreements in the few areas where CDMA coverage isn't as good as GSM?
Can you imagine the PR backlash? The company prides itself on its network quality and coverage. If "the network" is so good, why would they need GSM roaming agreements? They'd get attacked, and perhaps even AT&T would mock them publicly with ads.

Why is this news?

This phone has had FCC approval since 10/30/2008 according to the link. I have had a Napoleon test model since 12/19/2008 but they never will go into production. This information was provided to me straight from the engineer who designed the phone and worked at the Parsippany NJ, Motorola division which has now been closed.
Like most FCC approvals these days, it is approved on one date, but certain key documents (photos, user manual, etc.) are kept confidential until a later date, which the manufacturer specifies. This is supposed to let companies keep phon...
Is it not possible VZW decided to release this phone afterall?
