Motorola Droid 2 and HTC Droid Incredible both now go for only $149.99 from Verizon
Verizon has just dropped the prices of two of its high-end Android smartphones – the Motorola Droid 2 and the HTC Droid Incredible. Both were previously sold for $199.99 with the now-standard 2-year contract, and both are now available for $50 less. A new 2-year service agreement is naturally still required.
What’s more, there’s a BOGO (buy one and get one free) offer that you can take advantage of for the Droid 2. Both phones (the one you pay for and the one you get for free) need to be activated on 2-year contracts, but that’s the usual deal you get with BOGO.
If you’re wondering why Verizon would do this, it may have something to do with possible successors to both these devices coming soon. The HTC Incredible HD may show itself later this month, according to previous rumors, and even if it doesn’t automatically render the Droid Incredible extinct, it surely can’t go for the same price. And since the standard pricing for a high-end smartphone is now $199.99, it probably makes sense to drop the Incredible’s price a little.
Almost the same can be said for the Droid 2, only in this case rumor had it that it will be outright replaced by the Droid 2 Global/Droid 2 World Edition. That may or may not happen, but even if it doesn’t, again, there will be a cool $50 between the two siblings to act as a differentiator.
