At Walter Mossberg's conference D: All Things Digital, Verizon CEO Ivan Seidenberg took a question from an attendee concerning when Verizon Wireless would launch a Bluetooth equipped phone. The answer left no more questions: "You better switch [to another carrier that has a Bluetooth phone]." bq. A Verizon spokesman said Mr. Seidenberg was joking and that there was laughter in the audience. An executive from Motorola Inc. said the company has a Bluetooth-capable cellphone being evaluated by Verizon engineers. More at the Wall Street Journal [subscription]. The Motorola V710 will likely be Verizon's first Bluetooth equipped phone.
