It's not much to look at, and actually, it's not particularly cheap, either -- so we're not too sure where Verizon's going with this one. If it's any indication, there doesn't appear to be an in-store launch planned for the somewhat frumpy CDM8950 -- which, to its credit, manages to offer VZ Navigator, EV-DO, and a totally mind-blowing 1.3-megapixel cam -- so we think Big Red's going to try to keep this sucker as low-key as possible by using it as a bone to throw to third-party sales partners. Pricing comes in at $79.99 on a two-year contract before $50 mail-in rebate (okay, we suppose $30 for a 3G flip ain't bad), while INpulse prepaid customers will be able to score their own for $99.99 after rebate.
