In a sign that the summer launch season is just beginning to heat up, two new devices are en-route to Verizon, and are scheduled to launch on June 10th. The Motorola Rival A455, geared toward young texters, offers a sliding form factor with a QWERTY keyboard, Bluetooth, EVDO, GPS, and a 2 megapixel camera. The Casio Exilim C721 is a bit more exciting, meeting military specifications for dust and water resistance. It will feature a swiveling WVGA display and a 5.1 megapixel camera.
Pricing is unknown, but both devices are slated to launch in what is expected to be a very busy wireless season. Will they be able to hold their own? Only time will tell!
