Here we go again. On the one hand, rumorsville is buzzing with speculation surrounding the Evoke QA4, a rather intriguing touchscreen slider reportedly headed to US Cellular, MetroPCS and/or Cricket. On the other hand, you’ve got the VE465.

  • CDMA 800/1900/1700/2100 connectivity
  • 1.9 inch TFT internal display with 176 x 220 pixels and 65k colors
  • 1.05 inch CSTN external display with 96 x 80 pixels
  • Brew OS
  • Stereo Bluetooth
  • Music player
  • Video player
  • MMS, SMS, Instant Messaging, E-mail
  • 1.3 megapixel camera
  • USB 2.0
  • MicroSD up to 4GB
  • Talk time: up to 4.5 hours, Standby time: up to 12 days
  • 1.8 x 3.9 x 0.7 inches, 3.8 ounces

We’re not sure exactly how this handset carries ruggedized devices forward but apparently Moto did something right as it has already been picked up by two known carriers, Alltel and TELUS. Release timing and pricing are still unknown but we’re hoping carrier subsidies take it down pretty low. Any of you outdoorsy types out there looking forward to snagging one?
