Behold Verizon's Black Friday sale


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?


Samsung Smooth hitting Verizon Wireless stores, slated to launch April 1st

Samsung Smooth hitting Verizon Wireless stores, slated to launch April 1st

A couple of our VZW ninjas sent along the contents of a memo setting an April 1st release date for the upcoming Samsung Smooth U-350, successor to the current U-340. This entry-level handset will feature a 128×160 65K color TFT display, 1xRTT support, VGA camera, Bluetooth, GPS and support for a suite of VZW-centric services like Chaperone, VZ Navigator, Mobile Email and Mobile Web. The phone is reportedly arriving in some stores now so if you really want this blue-gray clam shell, you may be able to sweet talk your way into getting one early. In terms of pricing you’re looking at either $30 with a 2-year contract after a $50 mail-in rebate, though we’re told it may end up being $50 after rebate through some channels. Hit the jump for a full rundown of the specifications and few more close-ups of this little handset that could.

Thanks, VZWNinja and anonymous!
