Verizon "Post-Holiday" sale discounts the Droid Bionic, Pantech Breakout

Yup, the Holidays are over, so it’s time for the Post-Holidays. Well, at least for Verizon Wireless customers who are getting a sweet deal on the 4G LTE-equipped Motorola Droid Bionic and Pantech Breakout. The two devices get their prices slashed to $199.99 and $49.99 respectively, and are also bundled with twice the data for the same price.

The offer is good until January 15th, so you luckily still have some time to wait for CES and see if something grabs your heart there (and chances are there will be something!). But if you are among those waiting for a cheap LTE device or those who spent 2011 waiting for the Bionic, there will be little logical reasons to stop you from rushing into a Verizon store. Brag with your new purchase or just let us know what you think about the two handsets in the comments below.

Bionic - 10 months late and already obsolete.

Why obsolete? I have several friends who could care less about how thin the phone is (beyond a certain point) and would rather save the $100 or so and buy the Bionic vs the RAZR.

Not everyone is as techie as most of the people on this site, so what we consider "obsolete" may just be a good deal to the average person.

Get your head out of your ass dude.

I'd still spend $100 not just for thiness but to get rid of the awful screen the Bionic has as well, so RAZR would do it for me

"I'd still spend $100 not just for thiness but to get rid of the awful screen the Bionic has as well"

I agree -- the Razr has a MUCH BETTER display. I would pay an extra $4.17 a month ($100 divided by 24 months) just for that better display. If I am going to be looking at the display for the next 2 years, I want the better display.

At Costco, they can't get people to buy the Bionic despite all the FREE goodies like a battery charger, docking station, car dock, etc.

I agree. If you do not want to dump 200$ or more for top end, the Bionic is still a great option. Very good performer. I would like to see it closer to 100$, but Verizon is not a company to drop prices if they do not have to. If I remember correct, and this one I am not sure of, didn't Moto put the Bionic on the list of ICS upgrades as well?

I almost bought the Pantech Breakout -- it had a list price of $349 on Verizon's online store and Fry's Electronics had a $300 price. At $300, it was the same price as the Virgin Mobile Triumph -- however, I decided to keep the Triumph for a few more months before I retire it.
