Verizon cuts Omnia to $49

Verizon cuts Omnia to $49
After raising the price on both the enV Touch and the enV3, as we earlier reported, Verizon has lowered the price of the Samsung Omnia to $49. The new price requires the customary 2 year contract and is the lowest price that Big Red has posted for this smartphone. Initially launched by the carrier just a few weeks after the high profile BlackBerry Storm, the handset came to the U.S. with high expectations after scoring very good reviews overseas.

The device is equipped with a 5MP camera, Opera Mobile browser, Wi-Fi, 8GB of internal memory and a 3.2 inch screen. With the new price cut, the Omnia is offering a lot of features for a $49 model. Verizon customers now have an interesting choice to make, spend $49 for the Omnia or the Storm, or wait for the sequel model for each phone.

Not just a hunch Spartan, that's pretty much exactly what's going on. It may not be October, but I'm pretty sure it'll be debuting before Christmas. Just like with the Blackberries, they were on BOGO for so long before the Tour came out. I guess I'm not sure why the BB's are on sale now, perhaps expecting the Storm 2 and the Onyx, but all of them are on sale, so that could just be incentive to pay the $29.99/month for the data plan.

Yeah and its probably going to be while supplies last since they're probably not making anymore Omnias.

Let's apply some logic to this situation: VZW dropped the price in a big way on the HTC Touch Pro, droppin that phone from 300 to 99 straight up, which for VZW is pretty strange. Then a month later, the HTC Touch Pro 2 is set to drop. Omnia down this much? Yep, I bet the Omnia 2 is peeking around the corner from October. Just a hunch...
