Amazon shaves the price of the Motorola DROID RAZR to $169.99 on-contract

Amazon shaves the price of the Motorola DROID RAZR to $169.99 on-contract
Sure it’s not as neat as the $111.11 on-contract pricing it was given by Amazon on its launch date, but nonetheless, the online retail giant is shaving the price of the Motorola DROID RAZR by just a teeny tiny bit.

Set at a decent $169.99 with a 2-year contract, Amazon’s offering for the killer looking and sharp smartphone still outclasses the hefty $299.99 price that Verizon is asking from its customers. However, that’s the price for new customers. Therefore, if you’re an existing customer with a qualified upgrade, you’ll need to spit out $229.99 to pick it up, which isn’t bad considering it’s still a saving of some sort.

Well, there’s no knowledge on how long this killer pricing will last, but as with most things that are priced attractively, you’ll really need to meticulously think it over before it’s too late. Hey, it’ll definitely make a great gift for someone this holiday season – even to yourself thanks to the savings you’ll get!

right? they never price match either which makes no sense to me. anyway, i've seen this at fry's for $16x.xx before. i was tempted to buy it but then i remembered about the long delayed nexus

Does anyone actually know why Verizon itself will not price match? Do they not want your money as well as your business for their service?

Still not as good as the deal for a penny....if AMAZON puts the NEXUS for a penny it will be tempting to trade in my RAZR....

I was thinking the same thing. Both are great phones but I need to check out the GN to see what it's about. If my RAZR came with ICS, I wouldn't even think about getting another phone though
