Verizon to offer smartphones in lovely hues for Valentine's Day

Verizon to offer smartphones in lovely hues for Valentine's Day
This bit of news is for you, guys, who have not yet decided what to present your girlfriend with this February 14th. And something tells us that the great majority of you haven't since Valentine's Day is still over a month away. But Verizon is prepared for the holiday already, according to rumors. Big Red will have a couple of limited edition smartphones in stock, available in pretty colors that the ladies might quite like.

One of them is the Nokia Lumia 822, which Verizon will offer in red. Currently, the handset is only available in three not-so-exciting colors – white, grey, and white. For those who have not read our Nokia Lumia 822 review, we're dealing with a reasonably priced, mid-range Windows Phone 8 handset with a 4.3-inch screen. It is said that Verizon will offer it for under $50, which often means $49.99 on-contract.

Next up comes the Motorola DROID RAZR M, which will be available in pink, in addition to the current black and white options. As we mentioned in our Motorola DROID RAZR M review, the smartphone isn't the fastest or most advance DROID to date, but stands out with its respectable edge-to-edge display of 4.3 inches and compact form factor. Again, we're expecting a price tag of under $50 attached to the pink DROID RAZR M.

Exactly when these two smartphones will go on sale isn't known, but as Valentine's Day draws near, an announcement should not be far off. Anyone thinking of getting one of these for their loved one?

The RAZR m is just as good if not better than the majority of high end hand sets on the market, I'm pretty sure its benchmarked even with the iPhone 5 and gs3. I own it and its the cats meow

So you gift your girl a phone and tie her to a contract. That is not a gift, more of an expense than a gift. Get her an unlocked phone rather than these on contract

Today, even the 4.3" screen phone is called compact, I thought my 3.2" phone was compact.. :D

The Razr M have almost the same size of the iPhone 5. I think that the iPhone size is now considered the compact size. Smaller than this is tiny size...
