Verizon HTC One max to have max pricing at $299
0. phoneArena 20 Nov 2013, 09:42 posted on
One of the more annoying trends in the mobile market these days is that phablets are getting higher price tags, apparently on nothing more than the size of the display. We've seen it with most phablets like the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, although the Nokia Lumia 1520 is breaking that trend. Now, it looks like the same is happening with the Verizon HTC One max...

With essentially the same specs, the G Pro at $50, is a great deal. No thx HTC.

Want sell!!! Nothing more than a stretched version of The One. Why pay $299, when you have the G2, Note 3, even the One--will be slashed in Price on Black Friday, S4 and X.

Note 3=$299 L1520=$199 G Pro=$99 (One Max=$299 I think this will destroy HTC sales)
Plus the L1520 is at $99 for limited time

Note 3 updated the S4 processor and added a gig of memory on top of the Wacom's fantastic and pricy digitizer technology. Some people could care less about having a precision input device, but I have found it to be extremely valuable feature on my tablet. So, I can't help but correct the author referring to the Note as offering nothing more than a bigger screen (dont mind him arguing for lower prices though). The Max truly does not offer anything warranting a higher price besides a truly gimmicky fingerprint reader. As the masses have already pointed out, it is shaping up to be a flop as I am dumbfounded how anyone at HTC could be ignorant enough to think dated specs could compete with Samsung's, LG's and Sony's up to date phones with similar (if not cheaper) pricing. The absurd $300 pricing is more of an issue with Verizon charging for their "premium" experience overpricing the hardware in addition to their plans as usual. Sprint released the Max already for $100 less.

I agree with most of what you said, but it's $250 on contract with Sprint, so $50 less.
