We know the world’s first 1080p smartphone – HTC’s Droid DNA – is selling like hotcakes even straight from Verizon, where it goes for $200 with a two-year contract, so what could drive a retailer to savagely slash the phone’s price down to $120?
We have no idea, but frankly who cares? All we care about is that LetsTalk.com, a website that we don’t usually see in the news, has found a way to make one the most awesome devices around even more appealing. And it’s not even Christmas.
I mean, what could you not like at the $120 DNA? Besides the beautiful 5-inch 1,920 x 1,080 pix res display, it also comes with a state of the art quad-core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal memory, an 8 MP rear-facing shooter, 4G LTE speeds, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and a 2,020 mAh battery that’s not as meager as it sounds.
It’s true, the absence of a microSD slot is definitely a big downside. It’s also true that several of the major Android players around are planning to soon introduce phones with very similar specs to the DNA, including identical full HD screens.
But that still doesn’t change the fact that right now the HTC Droid DNA is at the peak of the Android evolutionary chain. And that you’d be lucky to grab it for 120 bucks. Especially when that price is valid for both new and upgrading Big Red customers willing to pen a two-year contract.
Now Let’s Talk doesn’t spell it for us, but we think DNA’s price cut is part of a limited-time promotion that will probably end in a few days. That and the fact that the phone is somehow still “in stock” when most other retailers have it backordered means one thing and one thing only – you have a very narrow window of time in which you can act, get your order in and take advantage of a highly lucrative deal. Who’s in?
