Motorola DROID 3 receives its initial price drop to $149.99 on-contract through Amazon
For the better part of the last week, people were only able to pick up the Motorola DROID 3 through Verizon directly online, but more recently (yesterday actually), customers were able to able to scoop one up at their local Verizon retail store. At $200 on-contract, the handset’s pricing is indeed more than fitting, especially when it’s choked full of some spectacular specs.

Well, that’s all fun and dandy picking it up for $200, but Amazon is already giving the handset that initial price drop that’s generally given after being on the market for some time. As long as you can adhere to Amazon’s strict plan policy, you’ll more than enjoy the smartphone’s 2-year contract price of $149.99 – a $50 savings compared to Verizon directly. At the same time, upgrade customers can pick up the handset at the same price as well! And of course, Amazon throws in the usual two-day shipping so that the only thing you’ll need to be concerned with is the handset’s actual pricing.

So there you have it folks, yet another recently released smartphone is getting its customary price drop courtesy of Amazon. We’re curious to see how much this one will end up being in a month or so.

Me too, but they NEVER discount the full retail price. Luckily you can find great deals on ebay and the prices drop more and more each week.

Your best option is to get it directly from Verizon. Best buy and amazonwireless for example may give better contract prices but they will charge way more full retail than Verizon will. I remember seeing the DROID x was 700+ through best buy and 499 through Verizon. DROID 3x is 450 full retail through Verizon.

What strict plan policy? I have often wondered about Amazon. How is their plans different?

@Snowgator: The plans on AmazonWireless are from the four major mobile carriers, Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, and T-Mobile. AmazonWireless simply allows you to purchase one of their plans and a mobile device all in one seamless process.

OMG miz get it together. You obviously just hate motos droids because of their locked bootloaders. Even tho this cripples them in the long run they are still amazing devices. Android as a whole wouldn't be as prosperous without the DROID series.
