enV Touch price confirmed and new video of the enV3
In case you haven't heard, the enV3 is going to be released on May 29th, one week before the enV Touch, and at a slightly lower price ($129 after $50 rebate with 2 year contract). One lucky lady, JenJen from HowardForums, was able to snag a Slate Blue enV3 and posted a video and a few pictures. So far she seems pretty happy with the device and likes it more than the Alias 2 she grabbed a few weeks ago.

Hello Godfather... I have a Question... Im new to Phone Arena and i was wondering what u meant by work.... Is PhoneArena like a Job for some people? like... How do they get info about phones so early?!?! this may sound really stupid but i'm just really curious how they get sooo much info about all the latest stuff...

There are people who work for phonearena but I don't think that's what The Godfather was referring to. I think he was talking about his job at Verizon. An email was probably sent to everyone saying that someone took photos of the phone and showed it to the public without permission. The way we get early news about phones is through leaks. When someone leaks information about a phone, he gives information, pictures, and/or specifications before all those stuff are due. This is usually done anonymously because he or she could get fired and maybe sued. But leaks can also be from the company itself. I know that companies purposely "leak" information and pictures of their project to create some buzz. It's actually a strategic move to get people interested like we all are now about the enV touch and enV3. Godfather said that jenjen was probably fired for leaking information but I think that Verizon was the one that was in charge of the leakage since the phone is to be released in about 3 weeks. I mean I knew about that I was going to buy the Voyager months in advance before it actually came out so I don't see why Verizon would make this one any different. I could be wrong though.
