DROID gets price cut at Amazon

DROID gets price cut at Amazon
The Mototola DROID is considered one of the top two Android handsets and some call it the best phone available on the Verizon network. From the amazingly sharp and clear 480 x 854 resolution on the 3.7 inch display, to the Android 2.01 OS (soon to be upgraded to 2.1), the extremely fast browser, the slide out QWERTY keyboard and the ability to multitask, the Motorola handset has actually been able to stay above the hype put on the device by Verizon and has garnered outstanding reviews. This all sounds great, but for many, the current $200 price tag might be too much to pay. No worries. Amazon is now offering the Motorola DROID for a price of $109.99 with a 2 year contract. At this price, the DROID undercuts the $179.99 price of its chief competition, the Nexus One, with a 2 year contract directly from Google. In March, as we have reported, the N-One will become available for use on Verizon's network which might require Big Red to bring down its price of the DROID. But for right now, if you love the DROID but not the price at Verizon, you can pick up the phone you want and still have some money left over for accessories.

jrcrow79 um yes 99% of all VZW new 3g smartphones CAN talk and surf the web at same time using wifi. And seriously have you ever tried, theres a video on you tube of a guy trying to surf web and talk at same time on AT&crap and guess what: dropped call, web page time out, drop call again, or 1 finally did load 3 min later, using iphone 3gs. Not practical no really able to support it. I can make the call hang up, surf web, and call back in less time Mr multitasker with droid.

Dude, that's all att has on Verizon. Big whoop, you can surf the web and talk. Who talks these days honestly, plus you have to find a place where you can even use data on the sketchy EDGE network you guys call a network. get over it, nobody wants to be on the phone and have to take it off their ear just to check something.

I'm thinking about just getting the droid instead of waiting for the nexus one at this point. Really can't see that much of a difference and I can def live with a slightly slower processor. Any other major difference I'm missing?
