Verizon XV6900 available April 16

We've just received word that the blindingly white XV6900, Verizon's rendition of the HTC Touch theme, will be available online on April 16 with in-store stock following on come April 30. That's a considerably healthier turnaround time from first rumor to availability than the XV6800, we've got to say -- and hopefully, it's a trend Verizon (and all carriers, for that matter) will be able to stick to. Contract-signers will be able to get their TouchFLO on for a nominal fee of $249.99 after $50 rebate.
