You know you have a good idea when others start copying you. I was just reading about the Motorola Napoleon Q9 on BoyGenius when I things started sounding familiar. How many Dual CDMA/GSM Verizon worldphones are there?
Turns out that the phone has a CDMA radio with EVDO Rev A! (Come on RIM) It also includes a Quadband GSM radio so it will even let you stick in an AT&T sim card as BGR tried.
It adds some interesting stuff on top of the 8830 such as a fingerprint scanner, WiFi, stereo speakers, and the previously mentioned Rev A. If this were not plagued with Windows Mobile 6.1 I would say the 8830 Worldphone is in for some competition.
Hopefully the Touchscreen Thunder Worldphone will come on the scene with Rev A at least. Check out the Napoleon Q9 to compare.
