Verizon Back To School Offers:Droid 3 & Droid X2 Buy 1 Get 1 Free

We like to bring you all the news about back to school offers and have previously given details of the Apple back to school promotion. Today we have details of the Verizon back to school sale for you. What’s more the deals include an incredible buy one get one free offer on the Motorola Droid 3, which has only just been released, and also the Droid X2.

Earlier today we told how it would be hard to beat the new Apple MacBook Air as a back to school laptop but if you’re in the market for a new smartphone these Verizon deals will be hard to beat. News of the Verizon back to school sale came to us from Kellex over on Droid-Life, sourced from Verizon, and the offer on the Droid 3 and Droid X2 is pretty hard to believe. We’ve had a lot of positive things to say about these two smartphones, both of which are priced at $199.99 on the usual two-year contract and data pak with Verizon.

With the buy one get one free offer that’s a pair of 3G dual-core phones for $200 and who could complain about that. They may not have the 4G LTE capability of the upcoming Droid Bionic but there are certainly many people who aren’t worried about that or who don’t live in an area with 4G coverage and they would have to go a long way to find such a good deal. We can give you a brief recap on specs for the Droid 3 such as its 1GHz dual-core processor, 4-inch qHD display, 8-megapixel rear camera with a front-facer for video chat, slideout 5-row QWERTY keyboard and 16GB of storage, all running on the Android 2.3 operating system. Although there has been a lot of positivity for this handset there are also some drawbacks as with most new smartphones.

For the Droid X2 we told about the fast performance from its 1GHz dual-core processor, a 4.3-inch qHD display, 512MB of RAM and 8-megapixel rear camera, using the Android 2.2 OS to be updated to 2.3. Either of these handsets has a lot to offer but there are also plenty of other offers in the Verizon Back to School Sale. For example the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play is down to $99.99 and the Palm Pre 2 is down to $49.99 from $149.99, that’s a 67% saving and an online offer only. You can browse the whole selection of Verizon back to school deals at the earlier Verizon link and the promotion started today so take a good look.
