Amazon now sells both the HTC Evo 4G and the Samsung Epic 4G for only $99.99
Over the past couple of years a ‘standard’ price has emerged in the US for new high-end smartphones – $199.99. There have been some exceptions to this ‘rule’, like the Sprint Samsung Epic 4G being priced by the carrier $50 above, but generally the big four US carriers stuck with this pricing.
However, for those among you patient enough to wait a couple of months (or sometimes just weeks) after a shiny new device gets released, there were and still are many great special offers – though usually they don’t come from the carriers themselves, but from large retail partners.
Such is the case today too. The aforementioned Samsung Epic 4G, priced by Sprint at $249.99, was available at Amazon for $199.99 since they started selling it. And now they cut even that price in half. That’s right, the Epic 4G is now only $99.99 from Amazon. This offer obviously still requires you to sign a 2-year service agreement with Sprint, but that’s a lot of smartphone you get for the price.
In similar fashion, the HTC Evo 4G, the other flagship Sprint Android phone is also $99.99 on Amazon. Again, a new 2-year contract is required, but the simple fact that two of the most highly specified smartphones of today are available for just under a hundred dollars is amazing.
So if you were eyeing either one, but were reluctant to actually buy, perhaps this price cut will make you change your mind.
