Verizon’s Black Friday Ad Lists “Cranberry” DROID RAZR, Galaxy Nexus, and LG Lucid for Free

Verizon’s Black Friday ad is out and includes a couple of decent deals. First, as you can see in the image above, Verizon and Motorola are releasing a special edition “cranberry” color for the original DROID RAZR. No, this is not the new RAZR HD, but the same RAZR that was released a year ago. As you may recall, they did something similar last year with the Incredible 2, so this could be a new trend from Big Red.

But speaking of the “cranberry” RAZR, it’s free, along with the Galaxy Nexus and LG Lucid (with a new 2-year contract). The Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) is $99, however, we thought Verizon had done away with contracts on tablets, so we are a big confused at this price. You will also find some decent accessory deals this Friday, including a Jambox for 50% off (after you buy a new phone).

Oh, the DROID DNA also made an appearance as it goes on sale Wednesday.

    All the phones in here say you need a 2 year contract.. the TAB doesnt say that. so who knows.. maybe you won’t need a contract with it after all. Doesn’t make sense if you can just go over to best buy and get it without a contract for $79 more.

    $99 for that tablet? OFF CONTRACT? =O i just might have to get that, even if it is in icky white.

    • iamme

      on contract

      • Matthew Merrick

        so… they’re bringing back tablet subsidies/contracts just for this? >_> that’s BS.

  • Spider210

    So a 2 yr contract on a tablet that normally is $349 with no contract, such a good deal….

  • chris125

    Just what everyone needed another color razr…

    • barbiebakes

      I got my tablet at Best Buy for $179 and that includes a $20 gift card.. That’s much cheaper than paying $99 and adding on a two year contract. We ordered it online so after taxes it came to $200.

  • still no galaxy note 2

    • DC_Guy

      I feel your pain. I’m waiting too, and rather (im)patiently.

    • damn been waiting for that device for ever, was waiting for GN 1 and then they announced GN2 and now waiting, in about 8-10 days it’ll be mine 😀

  • thronez

    Nothing good. Here’s to hoping Amazon ups the ante…or lowers the ante I guess.

    • Droidzilla

      Amazon always does a $0.01 sale for every phone they carry. So, RAZR HD or SGSIII or DNA (if it’s on there) for $0.01.

      • thronez

        Is that typically only for new contracts? I’m on the upgrade tip.

        • Droidzilla

          I think it is. If your contract is up, though, you can always get a new contract and then cancel the old and migrate your number.

  • fatalysis

    Is the Galaxy Nexus still the best unlockable phone on Verizon? My wife’s contract is up soon and I’m looking to get her a new phone.

    • In my opinion, yes. If you don’t care as much about build quality, lack of LTE, or the elevated specs offset either or both… go with the Nexus 4. FYI: I own a Galaxy Nexus and will not be upgrading… due in large part to the lack of CDMA/LTE support and it being the best built phone I’ve ever owned. FYI #2: If your wife is a “non-junkie”, get her an extended battery!

      • jak_341

        Absolutely. The only thing close is the S3 and soon to be released GNote 2. Everything else can be ignored.

    • XerOGravity

      no, the galaxy nexus isn’t unlockable (in the GSM-world) sense. Might want to take a look at SG3 if that’s important to you. Unless you mean an unlocked bootloader.

      • So I wouldn’t be able to take an Gnex abroad? Bummer. How about the RAZR Maxx?

        • capecodcarl

          HTC Rezound has GSM capabilities if you need to take it abroad. The Verizon Gnex doesn’t have a GSM radio in it.

    • tyguy829

      the galaxy s III’s bootloader has been unlocked, and has cm10 ready for it. i’d go with that

    • Paul

      The DNA is the best.

      • Wrong

        No, it’s not.

        • Paul

          What unlocked phone is better then?

          • Wrong

            I merely say that because the battery life is abysmal and so is the storage. Also, nobody is even sure if this “unlocking” will stick after launch. The Incredible 4g had a similar outcome. I highly doubt Verizon will allow a Droid phone to stay unlocked. Oh, and this on battery life. Ha


          • Paul

            The battery life is about the same as the GS3 according to all good reviews I’ve seen.

            The verge is a horrible review site, the DNA is ranked lower on battery life than phones that had less in their tests etc. Their ranking system means nothing.

          • Wrong

            Whatever helps you sleep at night. I can point to plenty of “good” reviews that say the same as The Verge. “Good” reviews are all subjective though.

          • WCDave

            Many people wait for more than one review to judge battery life. I’ve heard stories both good and bad, so I need a bit more to go on before reaching a conclusive decision on battery life…

    • EC8CH

      I was in the exact same situation as you…

      Just bought my wife a used G-Nex on eBay for a little over $200 to replace her 1st gen Droid Incredible in order to keep her unlimited data plan.

    • ddevito


    • Mack

      If she has unlimited data pick up a new Galaxy Nexus on Ebay off-contract but if she doesn’t or just doesn’t need unlimited go with the Galaxy SIII as an upgrade for sure. The SIII has a fully unlockable bootloader and CM10 runs like butter.

    • michael arazan

      In vzw eyes, the Galaxy Nexus is technically the only unlockable phone on their network, officially

  • First!!

    • holy carp!!!! my first, first!!!
      on the subject at hand…not impressed with this line up…
