Verizon to offer Pantech UTStarcom TXT8010 as Blitz

Just when we’ve started wondering what happened to the FCC-approved UTStarcom TXT8010, we have a new tidbit of information that suggests Verizon will be offering the Pantech-made device as Blitz.

Apparently, the CDMA carrier will start selling the full slide-out QWERTY keyboard equipped phone on August 8th through Wal-Mart, followed by Best Buy on September 28th. That by itself should mean you won’t have to rob the bank to own one. Still, the Verizon Blitz manages to pack VCAST Music support, VZ Navigator, 1.3 megapixel camera, Bluetooth, and of course a microSD slot…

And that’s about all we know at this stage. We’ll certainly have more to add on the subject as August 8th approaches. Stay tuned, in the meantime.
