Verizon released its third V Cast musicphone today, the CDM 8945 by UTStarcom- tunes go on a microSD card, and EV-DO provides the bandwidth for those overpriced impulse purchases. You also get a VGA camera (yawn), but a pretty solid 176 x 220 screen for all those TV clips you'll be watching. Being part of the exclusive V Cast music club (along with owners of the LG VX8100 and Samsung a950) will cost $130 with a two-year contract, along with another $30 for the "music essentials" kit, which includes PC software, sync cable and headphones, but no memory card it seems.
