Our Verizon ninjas have certainly been doing some damage lately and they’re clearly not done yet. What do we have for you this time – how about the upcoming Verizon Wireless Rebate sheet that covers the holiday season from 11/16/08 through 1/31/09? Several of the upcoming rumored handsets including the Samsung Saga and Omnia and the HTC xv6850 make appearances on the rebate sheet which is clearly a good sign. We also catch a glimpse of few new handsets whose details are scarce. Here is a quick rundown of the handsets listed:

  • LG VX8360 (clamshell with  EV-DO, 1.3MP camera, stereo Bluetooth, microSD)
  • LG XV9600 (basically a Dare with a detachable QWERTY keyboard and a game-pad)
  • Nokia 2605 Mirage (small clamshell with 1xRTT, VGA Camera, and Bluetooth)
  • Nokia 7205 Intrigue (small clamshell with 1x/EV-DO, 2MP Camera, Bluetooth)
  • Samsung Renown (clamshell with CDMA and Quad-band GSM, similar to the Gleam)
  • Samsung Saga i770
  • Samsung Omnia
  • HTC Touch Pro/XV6850
  • USB760 (super small USB EV-DO Rev A “micro” Modem)
  • Compass 597 (USB modem with aGPS)
  • CDM8950/CDM8975 (unknown?)

All the rumored rebates are spot on with the Renown getting a $50 MIR and both the Saga and the XV6850 getting a $70 MIR. The big item missing on the rebate sheet is the Blackberry Storm which according to our sources will have its own rebate sheet. We guess the Storm is just too “important” of a phone to be slumming around with some “cheap” flip phones on the same rebate sheet. Remember that being on a rebate sheet is not a guarantee that the phones will hit Verizon Wireless in this time frame. That poor XV8360 is on the rebate sheet again, still waiting for an official release date. Hit the jump for some close-ups.

Thanks, Luke!
