Verizon Wireless Set to Introduce the HTC Imagio (Codename: Whitestone)

October 1, 2009, By Atul Roach

The HTC Imagio has been a rumor baby until now and most of us have known it as the HTC Whitestone (codename). It has now been confirmed that the Imagio will hit the Verizon shelves along-with the the Razzle on October 6.

The multimedia smartphone is blessed with Windows Mobile 6.5 (Windows Phone) which too has a scheduled release date of October 6, which means that the Imagio will be one of the first phones to be released with the latest Microsoft OS.

What is great is that the Imagio also works with V CAST videos and V CAST music all on demand. The regular spec sheet includes a wide VGA display that measures 3.6 inches, a 5 MP camera with autofocus and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Talk about specialties and you get the latest version of the Touch Flo 3D that supports social networking integration and the aforementioned MediaFLO-based VCAST TV.

This is the first HTC handset which will offer the V CAST service so that is what could make this smartphone all the more sought after. It will be available for $199.99 with a two-year contract and a $100 mail-in rebate. [via: Cnet]
