Verizon is bringing back the Buy One Get One promotion but this time you don’t have to get a free BlackBerry as your second device. Your second device can now include a netbook or mobile broadband device to complement your BlackBerry.
The promotion applies to the BlackBerry Tour, Storm and all other BlackBerry devices on the Verizon network. The deal starts today and ends on the 10th of October.
Personally, I say don’t take the bait. Verizon is scrambling to offload their BlackBerry devices in preparation for the Back-to-School and holiday season, when we’ll be seeing a plethora of new devices hit the market. While many of these new devices will be carrier specific, and may not apply to Verizon, there are some great devices in the pipe.
It all depends on how often you replace your BlackBerry. If you can afford to replace your device every six months, then go for it. But if you’re looking for a device once per year, then I really suggest you wait. Verizon will almost certainly be getting the BlackBerry Storm 2 around the holiday season, so save your money.
