Verizon offers $30 netbook, $10 smartphones
As part of its Thanksgiving and Black Friday celebrations, wireless provider Verizon will offer the Gateway LT netbook for just $30 with a two-year data contract from Verizon. It represents a $70 in savings as the netbook is currently priced at $100. The netbook has a Wi-Fi connection and an embedded 3G module, along with a 10.1-inch screen, a 160 GB hard drive and 1GB of RAM.
Verizon will also offer a few smartphones for $10, including the HTC Ozone and BlackBerry Pearl Flip. Buying either also means buyers can get another identical handset for free, though Verizon doesn't specify whether users have to sign up for a plan for the second handset, though this is more than likely.
The LG Versa touchscreen phone and Nokia 7705 Twist are sold under the same buy one get one free scheme, but they are priced at a sale price of $30.
The last Black Friday deal involves the Novatel MiFi 2200 mobile hotspot, which that lets up to five users connect over Wi-Fi to a 3G connection. It will cost $50 after a $50 mail-in rebate.
The deals are only applicable from Friday, November 27th to Monday, November 30th only, with the exception of the MiFi hotspot. The netbook deal involves a mail-in rebate.
