Currently, both Bell and Virgin Mobile Canada are reducing the price of the smartphone by $50 – which isn’t too shabby since it just literally launched. However, it’s still worth mentioning that the handset still requires a grueling 3-year contract – but now places the handset at an easier $50 on-contract price. Strangely though, there is no movement whatsoever with other pricing structures; such as no-contract, 2-year, and 1year-pricing.
Regardless of that, it should nonetheless appease anyone who vaguely shows interest in the device since its price has been literally slashed in half. Just possibly, we may very well potentially see the device priced all the way down to free in the near future.
