The banner you're seeing above is no longer up on Best Buy Mobile's website, and the pre-order link never worked, but there's no denying that this is pretty solid evidence that the Nexus S is indeed real and out there somewhere in the wild.
Verizon's really steamrolling along with the Android train, aren't they? In addition to last night's official announcement of the Samsung Continuum, the Motorola Droid Pro and Droid 2 Global are now both up for pre-order. Just as we'd heard, the D2G looks to be $200 after rebates, while the DP, as announced yesterday, will clock in at $180 (both with a new contract).
Both devices are "world phones," meaning they pack both GSM and CDMA.
Are you an existing T-Mobile customer? If so, hurry up and head over to T-Mobile.com, for the new myTouch 4G is awaiting you, just a click away. It appears the official on-contract pricing will be a hefty $299.99, even after a $150 "instant discount." As for the rest of us... we'll just have to wait 'til November 3rd rolls around - or until we can't resist the temptation any longer and go with Wirefly's $149.99 deal.
While there have been several third party retailers already grabbing headlines with pre-orders of the T-Mobile G2, T-Mo themselves have been keeping mum about when the phone will go up for sale. Well, several T-Mobile customers have been reporting today that the G2 has appeared in their online store with an enticing label: “Pre-ordering starts soon!”
While this is no concrete date, it’s still enough to set vanilla Froyo fanboys’ hearts aflutter, despite the continued lack of an official release date for the G2 (don’t give up hope, guys).
Well, now we know it's coming soon: this evening Best Buy announced that the Samsung Fascinate for Verizon will be available to Zone Members for pre-order on August 27th (tomorrow, or today, depending on what your clock says). For those of you not in "the zone," you'll have to wait until the 29th to reserve your Fascinate. Pricing has yet to be announced. Full Press release below:
Yesterday, a countdown showed up on SonyStyle's website, promising something "smarter was coming." Here's what it looked like:
The contour and image enhancement (cranking the brightness all the way up) all but confirmed that Xperia X10 was imminent. Sure enough, this informed guess was correct, and Xperia X10 is headed for AT&T. This will be AT&T’s second high-end Android handset, and the first Android phone from Sony to launch here in the US.
Can’t wait to get your hands on the next Android superphone - Motorola Droid X? Then you’ll be probably be interested to learn that Best Buy has already begun their pre-orders for the newest addition to the Droid family, which will be arriving in stores on July 15th.
The biggest difference between buying the phone from Best Buy instead of directly from Verizon is simply the bonus of avoiding the mail-in rebate, as Best Buy is selling the phone for $199.99 flat instead of Verizon’s $299.99 with a $100.00 mail-in rebate.
I spent about 15 minutes trying to figure out how I could open this post with a joke about Radio Shack’s abysmal name change to ‘The Shack’, but figured it’s well trodden ground at this point, so let’s just skip to the juicy bits: it appears that the gents over at Phandroid have been tipped off by an employee at the aforementioned Shack that Sprint’s Evo 4G should be available for pre-order by the end of this month.
