Leaked Verizon Rebate Form Says the DROID 2 Pro / Global, Palm Pre 2, Samsung Continuum, and Others Are Coming Soon

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

Thanks to a leaked Verizon rebate form we know that a few new handsets are headed to the biggest US carrier. This includes the DROID 2 Pro and two models of the DROID 2 Global, which means there will be one without a camera for business purposes. The Palm Pre 2 also makes an appearance and comes with a $100 rebate. The Motorola (WX445) Citrus, Samsung Zeal, and the LG Cosmos Touch are on here as well. The latter two are unheard of before this rebate form so look out for those to be leaked / unveiled soon.

Yes, the Samsung (i400) Continuum is also on the form and this one should be unveiled at the company's November 8th event - along with the Nexus device. Last, but not least, there's a new Bold 9650 on the way so maybe this will have OS 6.0 pre-installed or something like that.Look out for them all sometime in November, which seems like it'll be a big month for the carrier.


WIND Mobile To Get the BlackBerry Curve 3G In the Future

Labels: , , , ,

Coming from WIND Mobile's own site is OS for the BlackBerry Curve 3G (9300), which they currently don't offer. Obviously, this is a tip that they will be launching it sometime in the future. The Curve 3G is definitely a great addition to their line-up since the only BB they do offer is the Bold 9700 and consumers want something a bit cheaper. Look out for it soon.

Update: Boy Genius has basically confirmed that WIND Mobile will be getting the Curve 3G (9300) by the leaked inventory screenshot below. As you can see in the picture below there'll be two models so we'll likely be seeing two different colours that the carrier will offer.

If you're interested in a WiFi-only Samsung Galaxy Tab then you might want to wait around for it because it has just been spotted at the FCC as the GT-P9010. This tablet will be hitting Best Buy in the near future for $499 contract-free which is the exact same as the WiFi-only 16GB iPad. Of course, the regular consumer will pick the iPad over the Galaxy Tab because it has a nice shiny Apple logo on the back. Anyways, check it out at the FCC.

Samsung GT-I9010 Hits the FCC Looking Like a Galaxy S, Could It Be the Nexus Two?

Labels: , , , , , , , ,

That was definitely quick; everyday we're hearing more and more about the next Google Nexus device. For the time being we'll just call it the Nexus Two, even though that may not be the name when it actually launches. So far we've heard that this smartphone will be a "Google-experience" smartphone, it'll launch with the new version of Android, and it resembles the Galaxy S to a certain extent. Now, the FCC has just let the Samsung I9010 right on through and it definitely sports the same shape as a couple of the Galaxy S variants. In case you forgot, the Galaxy S's model number is the I9000 so you can tell that they'll be quite similar. Check it out at the FCC and even the WiFi Alliance if you're interested.
