HTC Inspire 4G Hits Amazon Too: $99

We just saw the Motorola Atrix 4G land on Amazon’s sales page for a puny $149 considering what you’re getting. Now the HTC Inspire has followed suit.. and it’s an even smaller suit. The HTC Inspire 4G is poised to be on sale at Amazon for only $99.

The specs of the Inspire 4G don’t quite live up to the Atrix 4G, so the $50 difference seems right on paper, but again – for what you’re getting a $99 pricetag for the Inspire 4G is a heck of a price. We literally JUST heard a rumor that the Inspire would hit AT&T for $100 on February 13th so we’re wondering how this will play out but it seems like Amazon and AT&T will be offering the same price.

Were you planing to buy either the Inspire 4G or Atrix 4G? Have these prices swayed you in one direction of the other?

    So why IN THE WORLD doesn’t it have a front-facing camera!?!?! SERIOUSLY!!! The EVO 4G has similar specs as this, but with a front-facing camera, and it’s been available for more than 6 months!!! I’m looking to replace my Nexus One, but I guess I’ll keep waiting.

    150 minutes of talk time? That’s it? The Inc. has more than double that and it has horrible battery life in stock form.

    Interesting pricing for some great hardware.

    I still warn people against signing contracts with authorized retailers of any carrier. Too much shady stuff and secondary contracts behind the scenes that are very poorly disclosed, if at all.

    Probably wont get either the Inspire nor the Atrix.
    The Inspire is dated spec wise already. Very uninspiring HTC.
    FFC would’ve been nice. Kickstand would’ve been a nice addition. I’m rather tired of capacitive buttons honestly and can I have my trackball/pad back please?
    I was hoping for HTC to release a brand new high end phone for AT&T not just a rebadged Desire HD.
    As for the Atrix. locked bootloader = no sale.
    Looks like I’m still playing the waiting game, and it’s getting tiresome.

    Let me be the first to say “Holy Crap!” The price for the Atrix is incredible especially since according to other leaks or rumors the screen/keyboard dock is also going to be $150. You’re basically getting a computer and smart phone for only $300. Damn it all to hell that it’s on AT&T. It’s almost enough to make me switch, but I can’t get a signal for AT&T at home.

    Man, I just hope what was inferred by Sanjay during the MOT conference call is correct and that we may see the Atrix on other carriers.

    Well.. I guess it’s Atrix > Infuse > Inspire .. but seriously the Inspire is not that bad.. if you have no thoughts about using a FFC, it’s not bad at all.. However.. that said, I hope that HTC starts picking it up a bit, especially with screen tech.. I’m sure they have duals coming down the pipe,, and they have made some phones that tempted me, like the G2 and the myTouch 4G .. but when I put them side by side with a Samsung screen, I had to say “I’ll wait for a good quality built phone like the HTC, that has a screen near as good”.. I know they can do it.

  • will buy atrix

    I welcome these devices on these networks… although late to the party… SPRINT RULES CARRIERS, AND THE HTC EVO 4G RULES ANDROID DEVICES… THE GRANDDADDY OF 4G SERVICE THESE LAST 7MOS IS MY TRUSTED HTC EVO 4G… NOTHING BEATS THE EVO DUALCORE OR NO DUALCORE… The NEW HTC EVO 2 4G WILL AGAIN RULE ANDROID IN 2011

  • somedude

    i will have to buy atrix sim free, i was hoping more from HTC thunderbolt and inspire,htc ive been a fan of u but this sucks

    The price above reflects that the competition between carriers are very stiff. And it is not possible to be cut down in the nearly future.

    Seriously the inspire had outdated specs.. This a dumbed-down evo.. It doesn’t bring anything new to the table..

    The atrix is first on dual core..
    Nicer display..
    1080p recording.. FFC!
    And the whole screen/keyboard thing is a nice addition.. No doubt in. which one is the winner

  • WillDROID

    You guys are really misinformed to say this is a dumbed down evo. BETTER SCREEN, BETTER 2nd GEN PROCESSOR, 768 RAM, NEW SENSE WITH CLOUD FEATURES, UNIBODY DESIGN. If you dont care about the FFC and kickstand which i don’t this phone is definitely a step up and in my opinion the best phone coming to ATT this year out of the phones announced at CES. those of you thinking about the infuse enjoy a general lack of developers and forget about updates, and those thinking about the atrix have fun with the locked bootloader. Froyo can’t even take advantage of the dual core processor so while quadrant benchmark scores will probably be higher you will not see any difference in real world application.
