Best Buy now dropping the price for the Motorola DEVOUR to $99.99?
As we've reported yesterday, the Motorola DEVOUR will be going for a hefty $149.99 on contract throughout Best Buy stores nationwide. Some may argue how that may not be enough to attract customers from just jumping up to its bigger sibling; the Motorola DROID. Now one of our tipsters has managed to shed some light on a potential new pricing structure for the DEVOUR that may raise some eyebrows and getting the attention it deserves. It looks like the big box retailer is planning on giving the Android powered smartphone a much need price chop before it's even made available. Previously going for $149.99, it now points to a much more respective lower cost at $99.99 – and that's for both new and existing customers. If having to sign away your life for another 2 years isn't your kind of thing, then you'll really be impressed with it new no-contract price of $299.99 – a big decrease from the previous announced $549.99 cost. Let's hope that Best Buy does consider keeping this new attractive pricing structure – it'll definitely make it a worthwhile investment.

Definitely more reasonable considering this will have a minimum $29.99 monthly data plan attached to it.

I believe the no-contract price is $499, not $299 like the article mentions. Typo maybe?

Yeah, I can't see it being under $400 dollar cost... should be closer to $500.

One of my friends is a best buy moblie worker and he has confirmed the no contract price will be 499, so before you rush out, realize that is a bunch of crap. No new android smartphone is going to be that cheap for no contract price. Even the LG env touch is 400 without a contract.
