Verizon's HTC Imagio Arrives October 6: V CAST TV Streaming on WinMo 6.5

Windows Mobile 6.5 phones arrive next Tuesday, and as rumored, the HTC Imagio will be amongst them. It has a 3.6-inch screen with TouchFLO 3D UI, dual CDMA/GSM compatibility, and is Verizon's first smartphone to support V CAST Mobile TV.

The FLO TV-based service includes content from Comedy Central, ESPN, NBC, CBS, and MTV. Access will run you $15 per month.

The rest of the Imagio's specs aren't anything to write home about really, it's more of the same: 480 x 800 screen resolution, 528MHz processor, 5-megapixel camera, microSD expansion, 3.5mm headphones jack, and 802.11b/g Wi-Fi. Oh, the V CAST TV antenna doubles as a handy kickstand when you're watching shows—that's a nice touch.

You'll be able to order the Imagio online at Verizon next Tuesday, or test it out in Verizon stores from October 20. Either way, it'll cost $200 (after rebate, with 2 year contract).
