Verizon Android world phone at the FCC

If there's ever been any doubt that Verizon is the current king of Android, you can put it to rest now. The HTC PD42100 -- a horizontal slider dual CDMA/GSM "world phone" that we've seen once before -- has made its way through the Federal Communications Commission. In addition to being able to work overseas, it's sporting Wifi b/g/n a 4-inch display, and possibly one of the fastest processors ever crammed into a production phone. (We'll have to see on that, of course.) And then, of course, there is the keyboard. If anybody knows how to make a horizontal slider, it's HTC.

No word on pricing or availability just yet, but we're going to sit here waiting, not so patiently, for this guy.[FCC via Engadget]
