BOGO sale for the Verizon Wireless DROID, Eris, enV Touch and enV3 starts December 4th

No more speculation — we’ve got the low down on that Verizon Wireless DROID/Eris buy one get one free sale that was rumored to start on Friday. From December 4th to the 7th, if you buy one DROID or DROID Eris, you can get one DROID Eris for free after rebate. Sorry folks, no free Motorola DROIDs on BOGO this time. If you are in the market for a feature phone, a BOGO promotion for the LG enV Touch and the enV3 also starts on Friday and extends though December 25th. So don’t bother making that trip to your local Verizon Wireless store tonight, put that plastic back in your wallet and sleep on it one more night. Pleasant dreams!

Behold Verizon's Black Friday sale

Behold Verizon's Black Friday sale

verizon-wireless-logo1

One of our Verizon connects was kind enough to hit us up with some info regarding Big Red’s upcoming Black Friday sale which will be going on all weekend. Sadly we weren’t told anything about super hot smartphones like the DROID, Storm2 and Touch Pro2, but we’d like to think that at least one of those phones will have a few bucks knocked off of its sticker price. Having said that, these deals are definitely worth checking out, so here we go:

  • Gateway LT Netbook: $29.99 after $100 MIR
  • Blackberry Pearl Flip: $9.99 after $100 MIR [BOGO]
  • HTC Ozone: $9.99 after $100 MIR [BOGO]
  • LG Glance: $0
  • LG Versa: $29.99 after $50 MIR [BOGO]
  • Mifi 2200 Intelligent Mobile Hotspot: $49.99 after $50 MIR. (Black Friday only)
  • Motorola Entice $19.99 after $50 MIR [BOGO]
  • Motorola VU204: $0
  • Nokia 7705 Twist: $29.99 after $50 MIR
  • Samsung Smooth: $0 after $50 MIR

In addition to what’s listed above, anyone purchasing an LG enV3 or enV Touch on Black Friday will receive a free LG HBM-210 Bluetooth headset.

Anyone seeing anything they wouldn’t mind picking up, or are you going to be trying your luck elsewhere?

Confirmed: enV3 to launch May 29th with Verizon Wireless for $129

Our ninja came through for us again and we got our hands on the launch details for the highly anticipated enV3 for Verizon Wireless. The enV3 will feature a 2.6 inch internal display, 1.5 inch external display, QWERTY keyboard, 3 megapixel camera with flash and video recording capability, microSD expansion up to 16GB, Bluetooth, GPS, 2.5mm headphone jack, HTML web browser, and support for the whole suite of Verizon-specific services including V CAST Music with Rhapsody, V CAST videos, VZ Navigator and Visual Voice Mail. The enV3 will retain the small form factor of the enV2 measuring a mere  4.11″ (H) x 2.13″ (W) x 0.65″ (D) and weighing 3.77 ounces. We should see a launch on May 29th in all channels for $129 after a $50 mail in rebate and a two year contract, $199 after a $50 mail in rebate and a two year contract, or $299 for full retail. Hit the jump for the slide with the detailed specs and some additional images of the handset.

Thanks, anonymous!

Latest Verizon Wireless Rebate sheet reveals env3 and a few more upcoming handsets

Latest Verizon Wireless Rebate sheet reveals env3 and a few more upcoming handsets

One of our Verizon ninjas just sent through the latest Verizon Wireless rebate sheet covering May 11th to June 4th 2009 and it reveals a few upcoming handsets. We’ll tell you all right now though — there are no big surprises this month unfortunately. First up, an official confirmation of the upcoming env3 which will be available in slate blue and the familiar maroon. We already knew this update to the env2 was coming and have seen plenty of blurrycam shots. Though its presence on the rebate sheet does not confirm a launch within the rebate period, it does suggest that the env3 is not too far from getting official. Also new to the rebate sheet but known to be launching soon are the Samsung Alias 2 expected on May 11th and the MiFi 2200 portable EV-DO router available May 17th. Noticeably absent is the Voyager 2, rumored to be officially called the envTouch due to Plantronics owning the trademark on the Voyager name. This rumor is somewhat substantiated by the disclaimer at the bottom of the rebate sheet stating, “Voyager™ is a trademark of Plantronics, Inc. used under license by Verizon Wireless.” Hit the jump for the full rebate sheet.

LG’s Voyager 2, enV 3 for Verizon Wireless get pictured, blurred

One of ninjas just came through with pics of LG’s update to the popular but oh so craptastic Voyager. The LG Voyager 2 (original, huh?) is obviously going to hit Verizon soon, and for an extra treat, we’ve got pictures of the handset with the LG EnV3 as well. We’re working on specs and release dates, so bear with us ok? In the meantime, hit the bounce to check out the rest of the shots!

Thanks, to my ninja #/1!
