Samsung Illusion, Casio G’zOne Ravine 2, BlackBerry Curve 9370 Coming to Verizon This Month?
A new leak suggests that Verizon Wireless will be adding three new phones this month in addition to the high-profile launch of the Motorola Droid RAZR and rumors of the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus as well as the HTC Rezound. These three new handsets include the Samsung Illusion, the Casio G’zOne Ravine 2, and the BlackBerry Curve 9370. There is little known about the first two handsets, and the BlackBerry Curve 9370 will join the BlackBerry Bold 9930 on Verizon’s lineup as another BlackBerry 7 OS device.
The Illusion is said to be a 3G entry level Android smartphone for Verizon Wireless. The Ravine 2 may be a rugged phone, and not a smartphone, though that remains to be determined. The first generation Ravine is a clamshell smartphone with a numeric dialpad that is built for rugged environments. Casio and Verizon already have a rugged Android smartphone called the G’zOne Commando.
Specific launch dates are not known at this time, but the three handsets are said to be coming in November, though that information can change at any time. Pricing is also not yet known.
