Two of Verizon’s 4G LTE capable Android-powered phones are now available online at Target for a lot less than what Big Red is asking. The devices in question are the LG Revolution and the Samsung Droid Charge. The official recommended price for the former is $249.99 with a new two-year contract, and $299.99 with the same 2-year commitment for the latter. Those are prices that are well above what has been pretty much the standard for high-end smartphones in the US ever since the original iPhone launched – $199.99. Perhaps Verizon thinks that LTE connectivity is going to make these phones worth their higher prices.
Anyway, it doesn’t really matter, since you can get any device from a multitude of third-party retailers, that often have much smaller prices than Verizon itself. Take Target, for example. It now sells the LG Revolution for a very low $49.99 with a new two-year agreement. That’s in fact the cheapest we’ve ever seen the Revolution, so if you wanted to get an LTE-capable Android-powered smartphone without breaking the bank, this may be for you.
Also at Target, and exclusively online, you can buy the Samsung Droid Charge for $149.99. The famous two-year contract is required here too, obviously. Now while this price isn’t the cheapest we’ve ever seen the Droid Charge go for (that would be $129.99), it’s still exactly half of what Verizon wants you to pay for it. So a good deal nevertheless.
