Verizon Slashes Price of Original BlackBerry Storm to $99

Labels: , , , ,

With it being a slow news day today I guess this is worth reporting. Earlier this month, we heard that Verizon has ordered Storm 2 dummy units, so since people will see these units they have decided to cut the price of the original BlackBerry Storm to $99.99 USD on a 2-year contract. Make sure not to get lured into the trap though because the Storm 2 should be making its debut very, very soon.

Nokia Possibly Launching New C Series Line-up; and X Series

Labels: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Nokia already has their N-series and E-series mobile phones out there, but it looks like they're planning to expand their line-up with a new series called the C-series. On April 14, Nokia filed a patent for "Cseries." At this point, no one knows what this line-up could consist of - but it could be just about anything you can think of. It could be a new series for their future: Android-based handsets, netbooks, Symbian 2 handsets, "Linux/Maemo based smart devices", or even mobile phones utilizing Synaptics capacitive multi-touchscreen displays. Basically, anything is possible at this point.

My speculating may not be too accurate, but I'm sure Nokia will spill their guts on this new "Cseries" at this year's Nokia World 2009, set to take place this September.

Update on July 19th: According to The Symbian Blog, Nokia looks like they could also be launching a new Xseries as well. We still don't know what either of these series' will contain, but let's hope that we see some new devices in September at Nokia World. Click on the picture below to enlarge it, if you'd like.
