Earlier this month, Samsung began showing off an upcoming Windows Mobile phone that will be super-thin, but still offer a built-in QWERTY keyboard and a numberpad. However, so far this company has been willing to reveal few details on the i760.

Now, though, a series of images leaked to Engadget gives what may be some additional details on this model.

These pictures confirm earlier reports that said this device will run the next version of Windows Mobile, code-named Crossbow. This will apparetly be the Pocket PC Phone Edition, not WM Smartphone.

The Verizon Wireless logo clearly appears on the i760. In addition, an icon indicating that this Samsung unit is connected to this carrier’s EV-DO network can be seen.

But this smartphone won’t stop there, it will also include Wi-Fi b/g and Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR.

Coming When?

While many will be happy if the i760 really does run Crossbow, there’s a downside to this. A Microsoft representative has made it clear that no Crossbow devices will debut before the second half of this year.
