AT&T is launching the HTC Freestyle on February 13th for $99.99 on-contract
Not yet ready to make the plunge and check out some HTC branded smartphone? Well, you’re in luck because the HTC Freestyle is rushing its way onto AT&T’s lineup in time for Valentine’s Day.

If you’re forgotten about this beauty of a phone, it’s in fact a feature phone and not the usual smartphone we’re accustomed to see being pumped out of HTC’s camp. In any event, this small bundle of joy will land on the carrier’s lineup starting on February 13th for the somewhat unexpected price of $99.99 with a contract and after a $50 mail-in-rebate.

Why are we surprised you ask? For starters, the HTC Inspire 4G will be available on the same day – and even for the same exact price. On one hand, you’ve got a feature phone, while on the other, you have a souped-up smartphone that’s going to quickly find itself among the elites on AT&T’s lineup.

Still, this BREW based handset will offer HTC’s beloved Sense user interface which mimics most of the items you expect to find on their smartphones. Other features include a 3.2” capacitive touchscreen and a 3.2-megapixel camera. It’s going to be difficult to see this one being grabbed especially when the Inspire 4G offers more functionality and features at the same price point.
