This was unexpected - Best Buy is offering exclusive preorders on a white version of the HTC EVO 4G, scheduled to arrive in Best Buy stores on July 11th. The white version is going to have the same specs and price of $199 on a 2-year contract. As usual, a $50 deposit in the form of a Best Buy gift card is required.
I am not sure personally that I would like the white version over the black one, but I guess some people expressed desire for one. Read More
Best Buy announced minutes ago that the HTC EVO 4G, which was officially introduced by Sprint earlier today, is available for preorder from Best Buy stores effective immediately.
It looks like the preorder is available strictly at Best Buy retail locations and not online on BestBuy.com, at least for now.
The email makes no mention of the mandatory $10 monthly EVO usage fee that we reported on earlier, which is a sure recipe for some surprised and possibly not very happy customers about to head to Best Buy tomorrow. Read More
Yesterday BGR leaked a few documents providing pretty much all the details on the new LG Ally Android phone except its price, and today Verizon filled in the only missing piece of the puzzle in the official LG Ally press release.
Come tomorrow, May 13th, you'll be able to preorder this relatively low-end but still pretty sweet phone for $100 after a $100 rebate on a 2-year contract.
For a budget phone that already runs Android 2.1, has a 600MHz processor, a 3.2" screen, a 3.2MP camera, a full hardware keyboard, 802.11b/g and n support, and a 4GB microSD memory card, $99.99 is not a bad deal at all. Read More
It is official - as of today you can guarantee that a brand new shiny HTC Incredible will find a new home in your pocket on launch date - April 29th.
Incredible is regularly priced at $299 with a $100 mail-in rebate but if you head over to your local Best Buy store and preorder it, you will only have to pay $199 (+tax) out of pocket, $50 of which is due at the time of your visit. Read More
A rumor is floating around, started by an alleged BestBuy employee, about BestBuy starting EVO 4G preorders within a couple of weeks, possibly starting on April 16th.
The rumor comes from gstill4, an AndroidCentral forum member, who posted this last night at 11PM:
I work at best buy and I got info today that best buy mobile is about to get ready to take pre-orders within a couple weeks and it could possibly start on april 16th
We were already expecting BestBuy to start preorders for the EVO 4G sometime soon, and this only reassures our expectations, whether gstill4 is credible or not. Read More
