Released by Verizon back in November 2011 for $299.99 on contract, the HTC Rezound can be now bought for just $79.99, if you’re getting it from Verizon’s online store. The new price is available only with a new 2-yr agreement, and it looks like this is a limited time offer (just like that $49.99 offer from April).
The Rezound is currently running Android 2.3 Gingerbread, but HTC and Verizon said an update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich would be out later this year. Moreover, the handset will also get global roaming capabilities at some point.
Of course, if you’re in need of a new Android smartphone from Verizon you’ll probably want to wait for the Samsung Galaxy S III, even though this costs $199.99, and might not be released this month. Still, getting a Rezound for just $79.99 is not a bad deal at all, so maybe some won’t care that the S III is coming, and pick one up.
