Verizon tidbits: Versa, Touch Diamond, Pearl 8230, and more

Chris Ziegler

We've got a handful of juicy morsels coming out of Verizon today -- actually, that sounds a little unpleasant, but you know what we mean -- and we wanted to pass along what we've heard. Follow the break for all the action!

  • The LG VX9600 Versa and HTC Touch Diamond are slated for launch sometime in early to mid-March.
  • The CDMA version of the BlackBerry Pearl flip -- the 8230 -- will have WiFi when it launches on Verizon. As CDMA BlackBerrys go, that's pretty friggin' rare. Unfortunately, we don't have a launch date for this one just yet.
  • The carrier is promising to launch a device "unlike anything anyone has seen before" this year, but beyond that, we don't know what it could possibly be -- your guess is as good as ours.
  • The Omnia will be reduced to $99 on contract in mid-March, though we don't know whether this is a temporary discount or a permanent cut. Either way, it seems like a really good deal considering what you're getting.
So, what say you, Verizon subscribers? Anyone seriously ready for an Omnia / Touch Diamond deathmatch?
