The handsets on sale from Amazon are not the aging phones of yesteryear, but include some of the most recent devices that have been launched by the carrier. For example, the Samsung DROID Charge is just $149.99 for new Verizon customers from the online retailer. Verizon offers the model for $299.99 with a 2 year contract and Amazon's regular price for the model is $199.99. The dual-core powered Motorola DROID X2 and the LTE enabled HTC ThunderBolt are both just $99.99 through Amazon while the HTC DROID Incredible 2, normally $79.99 through Amazon, is just $49.99 for new Verizon account holders, as is the HTC Trophy. Finally, the LG Revolution has a $149.99 price tag at Amazon for those just signing up with the carrier..
If you have been thinking of leaving your current carrier for Verizon, why pay more for a new phone? With deals like these from Amazon, we would imagine that Verizon will be opening more than just a few new accounts until Wednesday is over and the prices revert back to their higher level.
Until June 8th, new Verizon customers can pick up a Motorola DROID X2 for just $99.99 with a 2 year contract from Amazon
