Apparently, somewhere deep in cyberspace, there's a hidden Verizon Wireless Web site that holds some of the carrier's juiciest secrets, such as upcoming handsets. And though there's no specific mention of which site (so take this news for what it's worth), according to Engadget Mobile, some enterprising individuals have discovered the Samsung SCH-i760 on this site, fueling rumors that the unique slider smart phone will come to the CDMA carrier. There were no details as to release date or pricing, but we do know that the Windows Mobile 6 device has passed FCC testing and features a 1.3-megapixel camera, Bluetooth 2.0, 128MB of ROM, 64MB of RAM, a microSD card slot, push e-mail, and dedicated number keys on the exterior of the phone. Hopefully, we'll see the i760 crop up soon, because Verizon is in desperate need of a refresh to their current smart phone lineup.
