It’s easy to get caught up in the price of a phone NOW with contract this, rebate that, service plan there… but what many of you would probably REALLY like to know is how much the device will cost you over the entire life of ownership. In the long run, after all is said and done, how much will you have paid for your Motorola Droid?

The folks at BillShrink.com answered this question while comparing the figures to two other popular smartphones – the iPhone 3GS and the Palm Pre:


It looks like the Droid and the iPhone 3GS will cost the exact same price over the long haul while the Palm Pre is significantly ($480) cheaper. If you purchase the Motorola Droid and select the unlimited plan option you’ll be paying $3,799 over a 2-year period. I guess you get what you pay for!

The Motorola Droid definitely SEEMS to outperform its rivals:

  • Tied for tops in storage
  • WINS in talk time
  • WINS in camera
  • WINS in multi-tasking
  • Actually…

Do we really need to go down the list? You saw the iDon’t campaign I’m pretty sure.
