That's normal for android devices. They always get a fairly quick price drop.

Well, part of that is because other websites can sell the product. It is no big deal as I purchased my DROID RAZR for a penny last November when it was still 299.99. I am glad the price drops as I would hate to spend 199.99 on something that is outdated when it first hits the shelves (not referring to Samsung or Moto here...lol).

BTW, when I say I would hate to spend 199.99 on something that is outdated when it hits the shelves, I was speaking of the iphone.

and you, like many Android commenters here, need to grow a backbone and not post so everyone can like you.

Price drops are normal so not sure why this is said to be "BAD NEWS" for those who already bought it.

dont amazon allways do this ie undercut everyone,,,dont think this is news really unless verizon themselves actually drop the price...you writing as if once the iphone 5 comes out no one will want an s3 or any other phone...you do know people who want the iphone 5 will wait however long lol even if there is no iphone 5 next week the people who want an iphone 5 will wait regardless if it comes out next week,next month or next year..whos to say that when the iphone is announced and is not that big of a jump, they dont buy the s3 instead..as always there will be 20+ million apple loyalist who buy ONLY apple will buy the iphone 5 regardless but then there will be the other millions who are not blinded by ''brand loyalty'' that will get an s3 or a one x etc...just hate it when people try to say that once the iphone is out no one would want any other phone

yes, amazon normally does undercut, as does Walmart. The iphone 4GS (which will be the name of the new iphone) should sell for only 99.99, because that is all it is worth.

I'm slighting android but I'm typing on a one x. I tell ya, android and their loyalists never cease to amaze me. Don't be butt hurt because android devices don't hold retail value because of over saturation. You should be happy because of cheaper flagship devices.
