The FCC site shows that the VX8300 was submitted on 03/03/06 and the VX8400 was submitted on 11/18/05.
However, there is no mention of the VX8400 from CITA.
The FCC site says the External Test Photos for the VX8300 will be up available on 10/14/06, and the External Test Photos for the VX8400 on 05/17/06.
I was expecting the 8400 at CTIA, too. Since it wasn't announced, I'm guessing they don't expect to launch it until the 2nd half. That was generally their cutoff for deciding what to announce at CTIA.
If I had to take a wild guess, I would venture that the 8400 is their MediaFLO phone. Just a wild guess, though...
...Media flo is just a different way of streaming video to your phone like vcast right??? or is it something totatly different?
First, I have no specific info that the 8400 will have MediaFLO - that was just a guess.
Yes, MediaFLO is for video, but it is optimised for live TV, which regular EVDO is not. That's why VCast offers pre-recorded clips only, not live TV. If you want to watch live TV (like breaking news as it happens, or live sports events) then you'll need MediaFLO.
