A and quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE connectivity, a 2.4-inch QVGA display, a QWERTY thumb keyboard, 128MB RAM and 256MB ROM, built-in GPS (VZ Navigator capable), 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP, a 2MP camera with auto-focus, a microSD slot (supporting cards up to 16GB), and a 1500mAh battery. A SIM card with Global Support Kit (enabling international calls over GSM networks) will come pre-installed.
