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.
