If talk of the Google phone plan is true, the **103** of a unlocked, low-cost, Web-friendly touchscreen device will probably undercut other Android phone efforts by players like Motorola, Samsung and Dell.
"Motorola Droid: A Visual Tour"And I just heard that, although the counter staff donít tell you about it, you can actually get a Droid on a 1 year contract for $269 instead of 2 years for $199. Get a $39.99/month 450 minute + $29.99/month unlimited data plan, and you should be in like Flynn. And although the Android Marketplace pales in size to the iPhone App Store (10K apps to Apple's 100K-and-rising), here are 10 Android apps for starters.Plus, there's a rumor afoot that Apple/AT&T are going to introduce a 8 GB iPhone 3GS (to replace the 8GB iPhone 3G) for just $99. Curiouser and curiouser....
I guess that's settled then.
It's the long-term contracts that I don't get. Well, from the point of view of the provider, sure. But why are people falling for them?
Easy: iPhone 3Gs 32GB with 2-year contract, $299. Without contract, $749.
