Looking for something just a little less fancy than the BlackBerry 8830
for taking your Verizon service 'round the globe? Yeah, we hear that -- and so does Motorola, releasing the Z6c
slider with both CDMA / EV-DO and GSM radios on board. The phone is largely identical to the Z6tv, save that the MediaFLO-based VCAST TV support goes to the wayside (who thinks they're gonna be able to use that action in Greece, anyway?) in favor of the "World Edition" branding and support. You also get a 2 megapixel cam, microSD slot, and the full host of Verizon features like VZ Navigator, VCAST Music and Video, et cetera (which are all naturally CDMA-only) packed into a shiny metal shell that just might not tip off passers-by to your "I'm an American carrying a weird hybrid phone" status. Grab it for $180 after rebate.
