Best Buy jumps at the HTC HD7S by pricing it unbelievably at $50 on-contract
You really have to hand it to them, but Best Buy is one of those retailers that can push smartphones sales out the door, even more when their pricing can be at times more competitive versus their online rivals.

Amazon seemingly obtained a fantastic price for the recently launched HTC HD7S for AT&T, when they marked it half off to what AT&T is asking for the device at $100 on-contract. Indeed nice, Best Buy’s pricing is shockingly better since they’re able to offer the newest Windows Phone 7 smartphone with a piercing $50 cost with a new 2-year contract.  However, it’s worth mentioning that customers with qualified upgrades are subjected to a $149.99 price point, which is still better than the full $200 that AT&T is asking.

If you do plan on picking up the handset online, just be aware that it’s “usually” offered with shipment dates of 2-5 business days. Nevertheless, you can always fall back and check out your local store to see if they have any in stock.

Trust me, you don't. Better off getting an android. and if you just want it because you like how WP7 looks, just download "Launcher 7" from the android market and wahlah. You have the look of WP7 with the functionality, customization, and support of android on any android phone.

I guess you speak for everyone, right? The only thing you will get from an android phone is a face full of malware at some point!

Me, too. I wish they would have some more featured apps like Chase, Oxford Dictionary, Paypal, better facebook app, yahoo messenger,etc.

I have a Samsung Focus Windows Phone and was subjected to using my wife's iPhone for a couple of days. I couldn't wait to get back to my Focus. Windows Phone is extremely intuitive and simple for anyone to pick up and find their way around, yet is very fast and beautiful. Yes, the app support still isn't there like Android and Apple, but it's kind of funny that some of the things that WP7 has had from the beginning are things that Apple is just now including in iOS5 (button to instantly activate camera, anyone?).
