Verizon’s Blitz now available for $70 with 2-year contract
Those waiting for a new mid-range handset from Verizon Wireless will be glad to learn that the Blitz has just been officially launched. The Verizon Blitz features fairly modest specs, and as such should appeal to the mass market of consumers.
With the Blitz, you’ll be able to access Verizon Wireless’ V CAST Music throught the built-in MP3 player and have your pick from more than 5 million songs with Rhapsody’s music library. Also included in its list of features is a 1.3 megapixel camera with dedicated shutter key, 2.2-inch screen and support for up to 4GB microSD cards.
Verizon’s Blitz supports A2DP Bluetooth, as well as mobile IM and picture messaging capabilities. Other than what’s been mentioned above, its other features are to be expected of any mid-range mobile phone, such as typical PIM functions, integrated speakerphone, support for voice commands and up to 5 hours of talk time. You should be able to see it shine as a messaging phone because it comes with a dedicated My Messaging key as well as a full QWERTY keyboard.
Verizon’s V CAST Music with Rhapsody service is available separately for a $14.99 monthly subscription fee, but the Blitz alone will cost $69.99 with a 2-year contract after a $50 mail-in rebate.
