Motorola Droid coming to Best Buy on 24 October?
The Motorola Droid is one of the most frequently mentioned handsets these days. Supposedly, the first Android-based device to be offered by Verizon will be showcased on 28 October in New York. Is it likely that the handset hits the shelves 4 days earlier? One of our tipsters has send us pictures of Best Buy´s internal documentation that reveal an Android cell phone equipped with 5-megapixel camera and QWERTY keyboard, components that the Motorola Droid sports as well, is getting released through the retail network of the company on 24 October at a price of $599.99 without contract. We hope the release date and retailer´s availability of the much-anticipated Motorola Droid get officially announced soon, because we need to know where and when to queue up for it, right?

Thanks to our anonymous tipster!

At $599.99 my New Every Two discount that kicks-in October 29th won't even scratch the taxes & fees for this puppy. **FAIL**

As a former Best Buy Mobile employee I would like to you know that the in-stock date doesn't mean we will necessarily have the product by that date. Plus the product still has a code name in the system so that really doesn't mean anything unfortunately.

Are you serious people, that is not the price for the phone on contract. That is what the full retail price is if you don't buy it on contract. It will probably be around 199. I believe the iphone for full retail price is more expensive too.

It looks like it will definitely be worth the wait. The Imagio is a great phone, but you'll be happy you waited for the Droid.

no not necessarily... what are you looking for in a phone? Do you have an exchange activesync server and do you plan on viewing, editinga nd creating microsoft office documents on your phone? Do you have an Live/Hotmail/MSN account? if you do get the imagio! But If you want a phone that has an awesome internet browser, easily customized, and syncs perfectly with your gmail account, get the Droid!

So, is the $599 price for non-contract? If so, thats about average and I will probably do that since I can't upgrade until June 2010.

This speculation is garbage. Yesterday at 3 of the Best Buy stores in Houston TX all of the verizon phones had been pulled. The rep stated " we no longer carry verizon phones or offer their wireless services". Not one, not two, but 3 best buy stores!!!! What gives PhoneArena??

Congratulations, the majority of you on here cannot read. Does $599 even sound like a price on contract?
