The upcoming Motorola Photon 4G for the Sprint network has been made available for pre-order on Wirefly. While a ship date isn't listed, we know the Photon is being released on the 31st - meaning you can probably expect to receive yours on or a little before that date, if you opt for overnight shipping. $180 will get you on the list for the Photon, but you'll have to be a new Sprint customer to swing that deal.
The second part of the "Deal Alert" for this morning is the LG Revolution. As long as you're willing to jump from your current carrier and sign on the dotted line with VZW, then you can grab its newest 4G handset for a mere $50 from Wirefly. That's an easy $150 price drop compared to the Big Red sales floor, and $50 less than Amazon's current price.
The Revolution is rocking some pretty decent specs:
- 4.3 Inch 480*800 display
- 1GHz Snapdragon processor
- 16GB built-in storage
- 5MP rear camera, 1.3MP front
- Android 2.2
Aside from the ridiculously low price, this phone also includes a $25 Android Market card, saving you even more money.
Stay tuned - this is a multi-part "Deal Alert," everyone. First on our list: the HTC Thunderbolt. If you open a new Verizon account (sorry, additional lines and renewals aren't eligible) today, you can pick up an HTC Thunderbolt from Wirefly for just $100. Not shabby. The Thunderbolt was Verizon's debut 4G LTE device, and it has enjoyed substantial popularity since launch. It's also probably the best 4G handset on Verizon presently, though its battery life and lack of a Gingerbread update have put off many owners.
If you want to get one of the hottest phones on T-Mo for the lowest price you can find, then you should probably head over the Wirefly where you can score the HTC Sensation 4G for $130 with a new two-year agreement. This is quite the deal, as Amazon Wireless and T-Mobile are both still selling this handset for $200.
Still not sold? Take a look at what you'll get for that one-thirty:
- 4.3 inch qHD Super LCD display
- 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor
- 768MB RAM
- 1GB built-in storage
- 8MP rear camera, VGA front camera
- Android 2.3 with Sense 3.0
As you can tell by those specs, this phone is definitely no joke.
Last week, I listed the EVO Shift 4G in my roundup of the best Android phones under $50, but that was when it was priced at $40 on AmazonWireless. Wirefly has now gone and beaten that price silly, offering the QWERTY-keyboard slider phone for the low, low price of "free" if you open a new Sprint account, or add a new line to your existing plan.
The EVO Shift 4G does have a tiny 3.6" display, but it's also packing a next-gen single core Snapdragon processor and a big 1530mAh battery - along with a fresh update to Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread.
I'm not a big fan of the DROID Charge, but hey, to each his own. And apparently consumers haven't been such huge fans of the phone's notoriously high original MSRP ($300 on upgrade or new agreement), making it the most expensive subsidized Android phone to date.
Well, Wirefly has started playing hardball, and after having dropped the Charge down to $180 a month or so back, they've gone price-slashing yet again: you can now pick up the Samsung DROID Charge for $129.99 on a new Verizon account with a 2-year agreement, or when you add a line to your existing plan (sorry, it's still $200 if you want to upgrade).
To welcome the arrival of T-Mobile's newest mid-range handsets, the Samsung Exhibit 4G and Gravity SMART, Wirefly is throwing a bone out there to all who are thinking of signing up with Team Magenta. If you walk into a T-Mo retail store looking to pick up either of these devices, then you'll be shelling out $80 for the Exhibit and $70 for the Gravity SMART (or $30 if you get the plain black one), but you can grab them from Wirefly for $50 and free, respectively.
If you've been thinking about jumping from your current carrier to Sprint, then you may want to take advantage of this deal: one of the most popular Android phones of all time, the HTC EVO 4G, is now free with a new two-year agreement from Wirefly and Amazon Wireless. This is by far the lowest price that we've ever seen the EVO go for, and even though it's over a year old, it still rivals many of the phones currently being released.
We've all seen "roundup" lists of smartphones before: who's got the best display, who has the quickest processor, the newest OS revision, the biggest battery - but let's face facts: that kind of stuff is for nerds (like all of us here at AP - and most of our wonderful readers). So we're going to try out something new - call it a pilot episode, if you will.
When you're attempting to convince the less geeky folks you know that they should pick up an Android phone, it can be a tough sell.
Today must be a good day for deals - first the Acer Iconia Tab A500 for $380, and now the Wirefly has the HTC EVO 3D for $150 with a two-year agreement. Considering that this device isn't slated to hit shelves for another two weeks, this is an excellent price (the lowest we've seen yet).
4.3 Inch qHD Super-LCD display
1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor
5MP rear shooter with 3D video and image capture
1.3MP front camera
4GB built-in storage
Android 2.3 with Sense 3.0
To add a bit more awesome to the deal, if you use Sprint's Buyback Program, there's a chance that you could get basically score this upgrade for free.
