Deal alert: Wirefly drops the prices of several hot phones, including the Galaxy Nexus and Incredible 4G LTE
Although it might not be the most famous or well-established name in the online retailing business, Wirefly has made a name for itself these past few months with a bunch of exclusive deals and price cuts for Android phones.
I’m sure you all remember seeing T-Mobile’s Galaxy Note dropping to $180 via Wirefly back in August, but also the very cool and recent deals for the Motorola Droid Razr M and HTC Droid Incredible 4G. Now the retailer has gone and done it again, only this time there’s not just one phone discounted, but no less than five high-end-ish Android handhelds.
Let’s take them one by one, and see just how lucrative these deals are.
First up, we have Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus for Verizon, one very attractive piece of technology even with almost a year after the phone’s release. The 4.65-inch Galaxy Nexus goes for just $29.99 with a new Verizon Wireless account from Wirefly, which would be a 70 bucks discount over Big Red’s regular price.
However, it seems that Verizon is trying to throw Galaxy Nexus lovers a bone itself, putting the phone on sale via the company’s official website too. If you choose to deal directly with the carrier, you’ll be asked to pay $49.99 for the Galaxy Nexus, which is 20 bucks more than Wirefly’s deal, but 50 less than what Verizon used to charge for it.
The second high-end-ish phone on sale via Wirefly is another Verizon device, the HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE. This is still a somewhat fresh device, being launched back in July, so you should be very excited to know that you can get it now for just $9.99 (down from Verizon’s price of $99.99).
Wrapping up the trio of discounted Big Red handhelds we have the Kevlar backed Droid Razr Maxx going for $69.99. The 4.3-incher has been released way back in January 2012, but is still very popular, mostly due to the humongous 3,300mAh battery that can power it for up to 20 hours of talk time between charges. Verizon is selling the Droid Razr Maxx for $199.99, although that price should be slashed once the new Maxx HD will see the light of day.
Wirefly has two tasty deals for those of you not impressed by Verizon’s services too, both being valid for new and upgrading T-Mobile customers. The Galaxy S2 4G is available for $49.99 through the online retailer, which is a $100 cut over T-Mo’s price of $149.99. The S2 is not exactly a brand new phone, being only updated to Ice Cream Sandwich recently, but the 4.52-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, dual-core 1.5GHz processor and 8MP rear-facing cam are still more than decent specs.
Finally, you can also get the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G on the cheap from Wirefly (for $19.99, to be more exact). The 4-incher is being upgraded to Android 4.0 as we speak, and, while Wirefly’s deal looks pretty great, T-Mo seems to have an even cooler one. The carrier is offering the Blaze for free with 2-year contracts, although Magenta’s offer has an October 14 expiration date.
As for Wirefly’s special offers, these don’t seem to have end dates, so you should have enough time to think things over before deciding which phone to get. Don’t take too much time however, because the stock might be limited and you could miss out on some great deals. So, which one of the five phones are you most interested in and why?
