The HTC Snap is making its rounds to the various carriers. First Sprint, then T-Mobile, and now Verizon Wireless.

Rebranded as the HTC Ozone, the Windows Mobile 6.1 smartphone will be available online starting June 29 and in Verizon stores on July 13 for just $49.99 with a two-year contract and after a $70 mail-in rebate. This is an incredible deal especially when you consider that unlike the Sprint version, you're getting world-roaming capabilities and wait for it, wait for it ... integrated Wi-Fi.

In addition, the Ozone will support a number of Verizon services, such as VZ Navigator and Visual Voice Mail. The messaging-centric smartphone features a full QWERTY keyboard and supports Microsoft Exchange synchronization and other popular e-mail services (Yahoo, Windows Live, AOL). Other highlights include EV-DO Rev. A support, a microSD expansion slot, a 2-megapixel camera, and stereo Bluetooth.
