We have some good news for those of you who planning to pick up either the HTC Droid Incredible 2 or Motorola Droid X 2 handsets on Verizon, as some leaked information has revealed a retail price for both handsets – and we’re pleased to say that there isn’t any surprises.
The guys over at Phone Arena have managed to get hold of some Verizon intel, and it confirms that both the Droid Incredible 2 and the Motorola Droid X 2 will be available for $199 on two-year contracts with Verizon. Just to let you know, this is the standard price that Verizon debuts for new handsets, although this has now changed for their 4G smartphones.
For example, the document also reveals that the upcoming LG Revolution will be priced at $249, which is a 4G LTE handset on Verizon and it’s also the same price as the current HTC Thunderbolt handset on Verizon – another 4G LTE phone.
It’s probably too harsh to say that this will result in the Droid Incredible 2 and Motorola Droid X 2 being labelled as ‘mid entry’ smartphones, rather than their 4G LTE premium devices as the price lists suggests, but we’ll just have to wait and see what both handsets offer in terms of hardware and features, as it’s still pure speculation at the moment.
What are your thoughts on the $199 price tags for the two phones – surprised or not?
