Verizon makes the HTC Droid Incredible 2 $50 cheaper, but you can get it for free elsewhere
Remember the story about the Motorola Droid 3 and Xoom LTE being listed in Verizon’s MAP (minimum advertised price) system from earlier? Well, in that same leaked screenshot one could read something about the Droid Incredible 2 having a change of MAP today. And, indeed, it has happened.
Verizon now sells the HTC Droid Incredible 2 for $50 cheaper than before, which means that if you want to get a Droid Incredible 2 from Big Red itself, you now have to shell out just $149.99 (if you go with a two-year contract, of course). That is a good deal, but there are better ones out there.
The Droid Incredible 2 for Verizon is in fact free at Wirefly, and goes for a mere cent at Amazon. So if you really want a Droid Incredible 2, the smart thing to do is not get it from Verizon directly. Both online retailers require that you sign the exact same new two-year contract that Verizon demands anyway, but getting a high-end smartphone for free instead of paying $149.99 for it? That’s what we call a great deal.
The HTC Droid Incredible 2 has a 4-inch 480×800 capacitive touchscreen with Gorilla Glass, a 1 GHz Qualcomm processor, an 8 MP rear autofocus camera with dual-LED flash and 720p HD video recording, a front-facing 1.3 MP camera for video calls, 768 MB of RAM, 1.1 GB of ROM, microSD card support, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and a 1450 mAh battery. The Droid Incredible 2 runs Android 2.2 Froyo.
