Judging from some documents we've received, Big Red is looking to clear out a lot of inventory right about now -- presumably to make room for some upcoming models, some of which we've already heard about through the grapevine. Specifically, the Pre Plus
along with the BlackBerry Storm2
and Curve 8530
are apparently marked "Phase Out"; in the case of the Pre Plus, we know Verizon's site has had it marked out of stock for a little while now
, while rumors of a Storm3
and Curve 9330
have been floating around for some time. Also on the chopping block are a couple netbooks, a USB modem, and the MiFi
, a device we've heard would be replaced with the ZTE-sourced, dual-mode Fivespot
in the near future. All makes sense, doesn't it? Follow the break for a second shot.
