Sure, it's not the big daddy HTC One X that those smug jerks over on AT&T are enjoying, nor is it the Galaxy S III that seems to be stealing all the headlines. But 25 greenbacks for HTC's flagship mid-range device - which still beats out pretty much every phone released from a year or more back, and many since - is hard to pass up. That's the price you'll pay for a new HTC One S on T-Mobile's web store, after an eye-popping limited time discount of $175.
T-Mobile customers excited to get hold of Samsung's latest flagship may have noticed by now that the carrier's base price (for a 16GB device) is $279.99 – yes, that's $80 above every other carrier's price for the 16GB model. Luckily, both Wirefly and Letstalk have lopped that extra $80 off and are now offering the SIII for just $199.99 for new accounts and upgrades. Of course, both retailers are offering Samsung's Galaxy SIII in both its Marble White and Pebble Blue versions.
It hasn't been too long since the Galaxy S III finally started landing on US carriers, but the price drops and deals have already started. If you're on Sprint, or want to be, you can get $50 knocked off the cost of a Galaxy S III from Amazon Wireless. The device is currently available via the site for $149.99 for new and upgrading customers.
A few days ago, Radioshack started this trend by being the first retailer to drop the phone to $149.99, and now it looks like others finally followed.
Update 7/7/12: The deal is back, this time at Daily Steals Last Call.
With sales expected to tip over 10 million units next month, and release dates being pushed back (or split) because of "overwhelming demand," Samsung's Galaxy SIII may just be the most sought-after Android device to date. Those still looking to grab the unlocked GSM version of the device are in luck today – DailySteals.com is offering the device for $599.99, a significant discount over the phone's normal retail price.
If a mid-range LTE phone on Verizon Wireless is on your to-buy list, then you've likely considered the new Droid Incredible 4G LTE. Its somewhat of a low-end One variant, but keeps that slick red and black color scheme of the Incredible line. While the display and resolution are clearly the weakest link in this device, everything else under the hood is sure to zoom along nicely:
- 4-inch super LCD qHD display
- 1.2 GHz dual-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ S4 processor
- 1 GB RAM
- 8 megapixel rear-facing camera with autofocus, LED flash, BSI, f/2.2 and 28 mm lens
- Front-facing camera for video chatting with friends and family
- Mobile Hotspot capable to share 4G LTE connection with up to 10 Wi-Fi-enabled devices
- Support for up to 32 GB microSD™ memory card
- 1,700 mAh lithium ion removable battery
- Sense 4.0 on top of ICS
You could walk into a Verizon store and pick one of these up right now for $150.
In the world of digital music stores that aren't iTunes, Amazon is a crowd favorite. With DRM-free downloads of widely-compatible MP3s and a cloud storage player that isn't the worst in the world, it's hard to not enjoy the utility of Amazon's music service. If that's not enough, though, how about some free stuff? Amazon is currently offering $3 worth of free music to anyone who asks. As long as you ask before midnight (PST), that is.
With Samsung's Galaxy SIII (finally) hitting Sprint a few days ago, those looking to snatch a unit already have a few deals to take advantage of. The best of them (so far) is from RadioShack Wireless. RadioShack is currently offering the Galaxy SIII (in its Pebble Blue, 16GB form) for just $149.99 for those opening a new account or upgrading their current device.
Both Amazon and Wirefly are offering the same device for the slightly higher (yet still discounted) price of $179.99 for new accounts and upgrades.
If you've been waiting to grab yourself a shiny new EVO 4G LTE, now's the perfect time - Amazon Wireless just lowered the handset's price to a mere $49.99, provided you're a new customer or you're adding a line.
As you can see, Sprint's LTE warrior will still cost you $149.99 if you're upgrading, just as previously.

If you missed out the last time OfficeSuite Pro 6 was on sale for $0.99, you can stop being sad now - it's back on sale until July 4th! OfficeSuite Pro is my personal favorite office suite for Android, as its blend of excellent features, intuitive and easy to use interface, and cloud storage integration (yes, I did quote myself there), make it as top-notch of a choice that you'll find on the Store.
Verizon and T-Mobile may not regularly make headlines together, but this morning the two companies have announced that they've struck a deal to swap spectrum (and some money) to bolster both companies' LTE networks. Yes, including the one T-Mobile has yet to build. While specifics haven't been disclosed, it sounds like T-Mobile will be the big winner here, walking away with a net gain in spectrum holdings—something the company desperately needs—while paying an undisclosed amount of money to Verizon for the trouble.
