We were wondering when the Motorola Droid was going to get a little price drop by Verizon, and it looks like today is it. With so many more handsets, like the Droid X on the way, it’s no surprise that the little price adjustment is being made to clear out stock. Initially going for $199.99, you can snap one up from Verizon now for just $149.99, or $50 less the cost of the original retail price.
Of course, you’ll have to sign two years of your life away to Verizon and fully commit to that $350 early termination fee if you change your mind after 30 days. Perhaps you can alleviate some of your worries by picking up a Droid from Best Buy instead, where you’ll only have to fork over $99 under the same terms and conditions.
Let’s also not forget that the Motorola Droid is running Android 2.1, and since it doesn’t have a custom UI like its little brother, the Devour, it will be getting 2.2 (Froyo) pretty soon. As a matter of fact, plenty of folks have already injected the slick new version of Android onto their Droids the past few weeks.
