Do you know what I love most about buying phones at Best Buy? They’re either cheaper than what carrier retail outlets are offering or, at the very least, there aren’t any annoying mail-in-rebates to deal with. The Motorola Droid X is one of the hottest and most anticipated Android devices right now, and you can satiate your intense hunger for Verizon’s upcoming handset.
If you’ve been waiting for the handset and you’re prepared to fork over $199.99 and commit yourself to a two-year contract with Verizon (and the knowledge that you’ll pay $350 if you cancel your contract!), you can head on over to Best Buy today to secure one of these new bad boys. Check out the press release below.
Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile have truly become the leading destination this summer for all your mobile smartphone needs – from HTC EVO 4G from Sprint to the iPhone 4 on AT&T to the upcoming DROID X on Verizon. Enthusiasts of the Android platform can be the first to reserve a copy of the new Verizon DROID X by Motorola today at Best Buy. The pre-sale begins June 25 and the smartphone will land in stores on July 15.
“With the buzz we’ve seen around the Android platform, Best Buy is confident that consumers will be thrilled about the Verizon DROID X by Motorola pre-sale,” said Scott Anderson, senior director of merchandising at Best Buy Mobile. “It has been a great summer for smartphones with the HTC EVO and iPhone 4 launches, and the addition of the DROID X adds another strong option for our customers to consider.”
The Verizon DROID X by Motorola features Google’s Android 2.1 operating system, 4.3-inch screen and 720P HD video recording and playback. Android 2.2 will arrive to customers on the DROID X later this summer. The DROID X is available at Best Buy for $199.99 with 2-year activation, with no mail-in rebate hassle.
