Verizon RAZR2 Next Week
Although officially set to launch in September, Verizon's RAZR2 will actually be available online as early as next week, leaked documentation shows. A product sheet for the device has the Motorola 2-megapixel cameraphone shipping from the provider's online store on August 29th. The September release date (now penned for the 4th) is only for wide availability in stores and other channels, according to the source. Verizon has also reportedly bowed to pressure from Sprint's $249 RAZR2 and has dropped the official $299 two-year contract price down to the same $249 figure after factoring in a larger $100 rebate.
The leak similarly confirms the shorter-term pricing that often goes unpublicized outside of Verizon's retail stores, revealing that the phone will be available for its original $299 on a one-year plan and $469 for subscribers without any contract. Unlike Sprint, Verizon's version of the RAZR2 isn't expected to include any extra memory and will go without accessories. [via Phone Arena]
