According to PhoneArena, Verizon Wireless has big Windows Mobile plans for the month of November, a month in which the wireless carrier plans to release three new WinMo handsets.
PhoneArena and various other sources are reporting that Verizon will add its own CDMA versions of the Samsung Omnia and HTC Touch Pro (XV6850) to its lineup, as well as the Samsung SCH-i770 Saga, which appears, at least for now, to be a Verizon exclusive
As more information becomes available, it will be posted to the News Center. Verizon has yet to confirm the November release dates, but it’s fairly certain we’ll see each of these smartphones in Verizon stores before the 2008 holiday season.
Sprint has announced that you can order the Sprint Touch Pro on its web site and at “select national retailers” this week. The official launch is set for November 2, when the Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional Smartphone will be offered in Sprint retail stores.

If you’ve been waiting for the new T-Mobile G1, today’s the day.
Two new iPAQ Windows Mobile Smartphones are coming, the iPAQ Voice Messenger and the iPAQ Data Messenger. It’s unclear whether or not these are replacements to, or siblings of, the iPAQ Oak and Silver we’ve been hearing about for the last few months. What is clear is that these two new handhelds represent HP’s renewed push into the consumer handheld market.
The iPAQ Voice Messenger is a Windows Mobile 6.1 Standard non-touchscreen smartphone, while the Data Messenger is a touchscreen Professional device with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. More details to come.
