HTC ThunderBolt reduced to $59.99 at Wirefly

HTC ThunderBolt reduced to $59.99 at Wirefly
While the HTC ThunderBolt will always go down in the history books as being the first 4G-LTE enabled handset available from Verizon, the handset's better days are seemingly behind it. With two other 4G enabled devices now playing at Verizon, the Samsung DROID Charge and the LG Revolution, the T-Bolt no longer has the LTE market all to itself.

The HTC ThunderBolt is priced on contract at $249.99 at Verizon. Just a bit under 2 weeks ago, we reported that Wirefly was offering the device for $100. Apparently, that massive price break wasn't enough to attract buyers, so the third party online handset retailer is taking the knife out once again and has sliced the price of the unit to $59.99 with a signed two-year pact.

With signs that the LTE flavored Motorola DROID Bionic is within days of becoming real, this might not be the end to the price cutting of the ThunderBolt. Ever since CES, the DROID Bionic has been lifted to mythical status and the handset has been eagerly awaited since then. How low can the HTC ThunderBolt go? A source for Android Guys tells them that Verizon will soon offer the ThunderBolt for the low, low,low price of Zero.

I remember when just a few months ago .. the T-bolt was advertise as the one that will rival the iphone4... it sold but it proves again.. it takes 3-4 months for a high end android phone to see the the door.. don't worry T-Bolt you wil be joined by the Revolution and the Droid Charge in a few months

Lol, you're surprised? For one, it's an Android device. Two, it's made by HTC. And three, it has more problems, bugs, glitches, etc. than a Windows computer. What started out as a high end Droid Incredible with HD graphics and capabilities turned into the subpar, half baked Thunderbolt.

Heck he's right whether you like it or not. iPhone is one of the only phones to really hold a value. Whether it really deserves to hold that value is up for debate.

iphone holds value because there is only 1 model per year. It's not hard to sell something at the same price point when there is only type to sell. That's why the 3GS dropped in price after the 4 was out. I'm sure the 4 will eventually drop to something even lower after the 4S/5 comes out. I'm not attempting to troll I just see it that way. With so many different android models to choose from. The model prices drop down faster to still be seen as a good unit to go to especially when new specs and features are constantly being put into the latest devices. Just about as soon as 1ghz single cores were out, 1ghz dual cores were in android devices not 6 months later.
