Audiovox CDM-8910

From Legacy Portable Computing Wiki
Virgin Mobile branded CDM-8910 flipped open

The Audiovox CDM-8910 is a dual-mode flip phone by Audiovox released in November of 2004.

The CDM-8910 was an ODM product of Curitel, and was rather ubiquitous across many different CDMA carriers, sometimes sporting a different name or brand altogether. In its CDM-8910 configuration, the phone was available on Bell, Cricket, Virgin Mobile (nicknamed "Flasher V7"), Verizon Wireless, and Western Wireless. ReadyMobile would later carry this phone, though these were simply Verizon models with Audiovox stickers covering the aforementioned carrier's markings.

On most versions of the phone, the CDM-8910 was only available in silver with a navy blue two-tone split on the outer screen section.

Variants

  • Curitel TX-115C: The ODM design used by the CDM-8910. Shares the FCC ID and most hardware specs with the TX-110C.
  • CDM-8610: Predecessor with only CDMA 1900, otherwise hardware-identical to the CDM-8910.
  • CDM-8615: Verizon variant of predecessor.
