Updated Verizon Pre-order and Release dates

Updated Verizon Pre-order and Release dates
Two weeks ago we informed you of the PreOrder and Launch dates of Verizon's upcoming phones:

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.
