With all the talk about DROID and ERIS many people may have forgotten about the rumors that stated that Verizon was actually set to receive THREE Android powered devices…

We may have found the phone that completes the trinity of Verizon Android devices.

Meet VPhone

Saygus VPhone V1 appears to be the third device destined for the Verizon network – early 2010 appears to be the release date. So what do we know about the VPhone? Well you can get the specs here. Or you can scroll further down.

The most exciting thing for me is the description of “2-Way Video Calling” – how this will work exactly, and just what charges may be included are not yet known but the potential sure is amazing. According to Saygus, the phone will come pre-loaded with: “Saygus Propietary Real-Time, Two-Way Mobile Video Calling Software – 24 to 30 Frames Per Second.” On top of live messaging, Saygus will be allowing for Short Video Messages (SVM’s perhaps?) for the price of $2.99 per month.

The hardware looks promising as well, you can see more pictures here.
