More Samsung i760 Rumors
The Samsung i760 which is supposed to hit Verizon’s shelves sometime yet this year(hopefully yet this month) has been an object of obsession for me for close to 6 months now. The latest bit of info I have found is a rumor at best but since it is a exciting one I will share it. A HowardForums user reported that on 7/7/07 he spoke to a in store rep who had been trained on the 760 and advised him to wait as it would be out shortly for $299 with a 2 year agreement.
I told the Rep that I was just sick of waiting on the phone I really want, he asked which one is that, and I told him the I760, and I kid you not – he lit up like a Christmas Tree. He stated that if the I760 is what I want, I should wait because it’ll be out “very shortly”. I asked him to elaborate and he said that a Rep had come in w/the actual device to train them – I’m sorry everybody, he was extremely vague w/ any info on a release date, but said that I definitely did not want to buy the Chocolate and to just hold out a bit longer. He also said the I760 is a great device and that he loved it too.
Additionally, I inquired about the price for the I760, he indicated $299/2yr!
This rumor holds some credibility in my mind because it is not very often a rep will push off a sale today for a later sale that he won’t likely gain any credit for. The price is lower than I expected Verizon to debut the 760 at but would make since in my opinion due to the incremental upgrades it brings to the i730. Here’s to hoping it gets released soon.
