After many months, Sprint has lowered the price of the HTC Touch Pro2 to $199.99
Stop the presses because something so strange just happened with Sprint's version of the HTC Touch Pro2 – it actually saw a recent price drop to $199.99 to make it competitive with what Verizon has been offering since its launch. Talk about a long overdue competitive price point because it's only imaginable that Sprint customers would've had a difficult time dishing out $299.99 for this handset – especially when Microsoft announced their intention on bringing Windows Phone 7. Those early adopters who shelled out $349.99 after mail-in-rebates when it first launched with the carrier are probably feeling the heat now that it has gone down steadily after months of being available. Verizon customers have long been feeling the joy of only requiring a slightly lower premium in catching this Windows Mobile smartphone, but Sprint customers had to decide which one to choose for themselves – it was either the Touch Pro2 or the Samsung Intrepid. With only a $50.00 difference between the two handsets, customers can now see the value on jumping aboard with the Touch Pro2. It may be late, but we're sure there are people out there who are relieved to finally see it get the much deserved price change.

They may have cheap prices but they're going to go down leaving phone prices this high, this late in the game...if VZW doesn't sell it a few months they start dropping like flies, but they also order the right amount, sprint probably orders the whole wad and gets stuck selling them off to Amazon for a penny and a 2yr. That how you do it sprint keep tanking.

Sprint isn't big enough to offer the super subsidies vzw does. The gamble of giving away phones to get contracts can be taken when you're that big. Things have to be methodical in Sprints situation.

But now the WSJ is reporting that Big Red is running short on cash to pay thier hefty dividend. How are they going to offer massive subsidies, build out LTE ASAP, and still keep stock prices high with the Dividend where it is? I'm sure they will find a way...

I only hope $349 is not the price tag for 2yr contract with the EVO 4G.... It would be funny to see EVO 4G selling at only $199 while the TP2 is still at $349, haha
