Updated Verizon Pre-order and Release dates
We have recently learned that some of these dates have changed.
The newest release schedule is:
BlackBerry Pearl (8130) : 10/26 Pre-Order; 11/8 Launch.
BlackBerry Pearl (8130) in Pink : Jan. 08
BlackBerry 8830 (World Edition) in Red : Jan. 08
LG Venus in Black (VX8800) : 11/8 Pre-Order; 11/19 Launch
LG Venus (VX8800) in Pink : Pending Pre-Order Decision; 12/11 Launch
LG Voyager (VX10000) : 11/8 Pre-Order; 11/21 Launch
LG VX8350 (Red) : 11/21 Launch
LG Chocolate in Blue Ice (VX8550) : 11/21 Launch
VZW Vogue : Jan. 08
As you can see, the LG Venus (VX8800) has changed from a PreOrder date of 10/19 to 11/8, and Launch date from 11/4 to 11/19. Also, the highly talked about LG Voyager (VX10000) keeps its 11/8 PreOrder date, but the Launch date has changed from 11/18 to 11/21. This makes sense to us, since 11/18 is a Sunday, and it would be odd to release the Voyager on a Sunday instead of a week-day.
Last week we were told that the Samsung U900 (replacement of the A990) would be released 11/15, but there is no mention of it in the new info that was provided to us this week. We are unsure if this means the U900 is still scheduled for a 11/15 Launch, or if it has also been pushed-back.
*UPDATE* Prices are now known:
LG Voyager VX10000:
$349 - $50 Rebate = $299 with a 2 year contract.
LG Venus VX8800:
$249 - $50 Rebate = $199 with a 2 year contract.
Samsung FlipShot U900:
$299 - $50 Rebate = $249 with 2 year contract.

This must be one of those websites that they let Verizon employees look at while they work while blocking the others ones. It's like a Big Verizon party in here. I wanna join the propaganda too... Hey.. It's the Network...

Are the release dates (not pre-order) for when they will be released online only or will they also be available in stores on that date? Also, you mentioned that Sunday release dates made more sense... Nov.19 (for the venus) is a monday...

"Have they announced the price for the vx 10000" I've heard $299 after $50 rebate with 2 year contract.

The Chocolate is coming out in Blue Ice? Does anyone have any clue what that will look like? I was thinking about picking the Blue Mint Chocolate up, but with this announced I may have to wait. I don't want to wait if it will be like the obnoxious like the old Chocolate's colors.
24. Michael (unregistered) posted on 26 Oct 2007, 12:42 0
Hey thanks for the update. However, do you think that you could gt me some info on the price of the voyager without a new 2 year contract? (Without an eligible upgrade)
25. (unregistered) posted on 26 Oct 2007, 16:38 0
Verizonwireless.com/pearl still offers the opportunity to sign up for notification when the pearl will be available. I guess the pre-order date above is wrong.
26. Release (unregistered) posted on 27 Oct 2007, 16:06 0
I read somewhere that the release date for the pearl is going to be the 19th as well. I guess I will wait for the Voyager unfortunately.

Hey Liz, WIFI wouldn't work on the Voyager. It's not a pda phone so no internet explorer. Mobile Web only

So today is the 21st and the Voyage, Flipshot, and the Venus are all out, but what about that other phone that was supposed to come out? The Blue Ice Chocolate? I have seen nothing about it and I am very curious to see it on the internet and in real life.

Does anyone have any info on whether we can actually expect the HTC Touch/Vogue to be released on Verizon in January? I have my equipment credit and a 3year old v710 I'm looking to get rid of.
42. Vogue (unregistered) posted on 23 Dec 2007, 21:51 0
I was just asking myself the same question, do we know if if the HTC Vogue will actually be carried by Verzion? From the looks of the website it looks like Verizon is not going to do that, but then again I could be wrong, but by now I think something should have been posted announcing whether or not it will be released with Verizon

The FCC seems to be showing it for Rogers but not for Verizon yet. Pg.149 in the manual (actually pg.29 of the PDF) https://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/prod
