Samsung Droid Charge Drops to $199 at Verizon

Verizon has dropped the price of the Samsung DROID Charge to a more reasonable $199.99 on a new two-year contract, a move most noticeable for what it implies rather than the savings it provides. That is because it is widely assumed that the Charge will give way for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Nexus (Nexus Prime), with a price drop the first logical step on the path to smartphone retirement. The story is in the model numbers. The Charge holds the designation SCH-I510, while the Nexus has been listed under the SCH-I515 model number. With Samsung’s CTIA event delayed, we don’t know when to expect the latter on Verizon’s shelves. Still, if the new deal on the Droid Charge sounds tempting may we suggest waiting just a bit longer. Even at $199 the handset is still showing its age and bigger, better things are in the very near future.

    For some reason I think Google will influence the Nexus Prime to be sold at a subsidized price of $199. I don’t know why I have that feeling, just do.

    This is a great step in the right direction, especially when everyone is raising prices. What would really be great is the Samsung Droid will offer a pre-paid service. I hate contracts!

    These phones are cheap at Wirefly or Lets Talk. I just got the Thunderbolt with wirefly for $69.99. The Droid Charge was $49.99. Free shipping. That was because it was a family add a line plan, otherwise it would have been .01. But buying these phones direct from the store is rediculous.
