If you’ve been waiting for the Samsung i760 for the better part of a year, you might be able to scam the system.
Never mind. After Verizon reads this post I’m sure they’ll lock it down faster than Nicole Richie’s prison stint. Nevertheless, getting the Samsung i760 more than a week before its official September 24th drop date isn’t much to complain about. Customers are reporting that this super slick Windows Mobile 6 handset is now available by way of Verizon’s customer service and Business to Business channels. Prospective customers beware: pricing is pretty savage. The i760 on a 2 year contract will run you $399 plus a $50 MIR and a 1 year contract will nab you one for $459.99 plus $50 MIR. Not exactly chump change. That said, if you need the best and brightest on Verizon, this is, hands down, your best bet. Run, don’t walk, to your phone and call those CS reps. Give them this SKU for the device, SCHi760ZKV, and tell ‘em BGR sent ya’. Just be prepared for Samsung’s usual horrible keyboards that don’t register fast keypresses…They’ll never learn! But wait, what about accessories? Yeah, we got you covered. The available accessories along with the corresponding SKUs are after the jump!
