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?

LG enV Touch and Glance walk the Big Red carpet

LG enV Touch and Glance walk the Big Red carpet

So far in our coverage of these two Verizon-bound handsets by LG, feelings have certainly been mixed. The LG Glance — with its 1.3 megapixel camera, 2.5mm headphone jack, Bluetooth, VZ Navigator and slim frame — has not garnered much love on the pages of BGR. Seeing as it’s an entry-level feature phone of course, we really didn’t expect it to. The enV Touch on the other hand has been received much better. Sure there is the occasional GSM addict who scoffs at this CDMA kit despite dual 3-inch displays, full QWERTY keypad, 3.2 megapixel camera with a Schneider Kreuznach lens and auto-focus, 3.5mm headphone jack, Visual Voicemail and MicroSDHC support, but you can’t please everyone. The bottom line is whether or not these new LGs are your cup of tea, variety is a good thing… Just ask Hef. Right on queue, the LG enV Touch and LG Glance have both appeared on Verizon’s website and are now available for purchase through all channels — the former for $149.99 on contract after MIR and the latter for $49.99 on contract after MIR. Looking for an upgrade? Looking for a downgrade? Hit the read link and get to shopping.

Thanks, Brandon!

Verizon announces the LG enV 3, enV TOUCH and Glance

Today Verizon took the wraps off of three devices we feel like we already know all too well. Starting off with the successor to the Voyager, the evV TOUCH features a 3-inch touchscreen display on the exterior, a non-touch 3-inch display on the interior, full-QWERTY keypad, 3.2 megapixel camera with a Schneider Kreuznach lens and auto-focus, 3.5mm headphone jack and the ability to view Microsoft Office documents from a microSD card. The enV 3 features a full-QWERTY keypad as well, but it has a 2.6-inch external display coupled with a 1.56-incher on the inside and support for microSD cards up to 16GB. Moving on to the Glance, not much to see here other than the 1.3 megapixel camera, 2.5mm headphone jack and slim silhouette. All three devices feature GPS by way of VZ Navigator, mobile email, web and IM in addition to threaded SMS and MMS. The enV TOUCH will be available on June 5th for $149.99 after a $70 MIR with the Glance coming out the same day for $49.99 after a $50 MIR. The enV 3 will be available tomorrow for $129.99 after a $50 MIR.
