Deal of the day: HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE available for $49.99 on a two-year contract
Although Amazon Wireless doesn’t need to artificially cut the prices of its phones to get people to buy them, the online retailer seems to now be going through some sort of a record-breaking form when talking about offering deals. Otherwise, we simply can’t explain how is it possible that, just a few days after putting the Galaxy Nexus on a never seen before sale, Amazon can now slash the price of the HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE to an all-time low.
We can’t explain, but we surely can take advantage of the offer without asking too many questions. After all, does anyone care why would someone be selling such a great phone like the Incredible 4G for just 50 bucks? All that matters is that you can get one of the absolute best Android-based handhelds around without paying an arm and a leg – a two-year Verizon contract is still required.
Amazon’s special deal doesn’t have an expiration date set, but the new Incredible already appears as “backordered” on the retailer’s website, so we’re guessing it won’t take long until the offer will only be a matter of the past.
That said, you can’t possibly say no to this deal, even if you’ll have to wait for a couple of weeks to get the phone. Powered by a 1.2 GHz dual-core “Krait” processor, the Incredible 4G LTE is slightly less snappy than Samsung Galaxy S3 or its “cousin”, the One X, but it does come as a far more portable alternative to those “beasts”.
Sporting a 4-inch S-LCD capacitive touchscreen with 960 x 540 pixels resolution, HTC’s follow-up to last year’s Incredible 2 was initially put up for sale at $149.99 with a two-year contract. That’s still Verizon’s price for the phone and it might be for a while longer, which is yet another reason to take advantage of Amazon’s deal.
Although it was delayed time in and time out and it has come a bit late to an already overly crowded Android high-end table, Verizon and HTC’s Droid Incredible 4G LTE is clearly one fine piece of technology and anyone would be lucky to get it for just 50 bucks. Now if only you’d hurry up and not let the offer expire.
