As you may recall, the Libra is essentially a Vox with the GSM radio switched out for a CDMA one -- and with it, of course, comes 3G data, a feature sorely missed in the Vox. Even better, the Libra will allegedly be software upgradeable to EV-DO Rev. A for an added boost."</i> <br /><br /><img src="http://www.smartphonethoughts.com/images/Kris-apr2007-htclibrafcc.jpg" alt="User submitted image" title="User submitted image"/> <br /><br />The FCC has cleared the HTC Vox's cousin, the HTC Libra. The Libra is designed for the CDMA network. It is not known who will be carrying this Windows Mobile Standard edition device - Verizon or Sprint. Also, HTC has requested for confidentiality until May 30th. So hopefully we can expect another announcement by then. :wink: <a href="http://tinyurl.com/35jocd">Click here</a> for the FCC documents.

I wonder how many people switch networks for something like this? Or would most people wait for a good phone on their network? I can't imagine leaving GSM for CDMA and having the headache of trying to switch phones.
