but they can be a guide as to when the phone might drop. The $149.99 rice dovetails with information we recently passed on to you that Verizon will offer a $50 mail-in rebate with the phone. That would mean that the pre-rebate price would be $199.99 with a signed 2-year pact.
The model is equipped with a 4 inch Super LCD qHD display with pixel resolution of 275ppi and is powered by a dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor. 1GB of RAM is aboard. An 8 MP camera on back captures video at 1080p while the VGA front facing camera is good for self-portraits and video chats.
Also on the MAP list is the Samsung Galaxy S III. The 16GB models in marble white and pebble blue have a MAP price of $199.99 on contract which in this case does match the launch price as officially announced by the carrier. The 32GB variant of the phone in either color has a MAP price that also matches Verizon's announced launch price of $249.99. We know that the pre-order period for the Samsung Galaxy S III is June 6th which falls early in the MAP period of June 4th through December 4th.
