Neither is confirmed at the moment, but we’ve heard that AT&T, starting Friday, will be offering 50% off any BlackBerry smartphone with new activation and minimum $30 monthly data package. Separately we’ve been told Verizon Wireless will be offering up their infamous buy-one-get-one-free promotions for their Android handsets, the DROID and DROID Eris. That’s supposed to start December 4th as well.

Thanks, phenomenalone and Emily!
