According to this exclusive from Droid-Life, their sources have told them that the handset will be launching on Verizon on November 11th – which is a Thursday for your reference. It isn’t confirmed yet of course, but they do point out that Verizon has made a habit of releasing handsets in the past on this day.
As for price, they believe it will come in at the standard $199 price point, with a two year deal with Verizon and a mail-in rebate, probably $100.
Do you think the release date mentioned has any truth to it? That’s all their sources were willing to disclose, but we’ll let you know if there are further details. Don’t get there is a useful benchmark tests video here, and the first hands-on review here.
Are any of you seriously thinking of getting this handset? A final name would be nice first.
