Amazon is getting seriously competitive in their pricing for the HTC Droid Incredible 2. They are currently listing it for $79 with a new two year contract from Verizon. That's $120 cheaper than Verizon's best price! And it hasn't really been around that long either.
With the trend moving quickly towards multi core handsets, it's really not surprising. But just because this phone only has a single core 1Ghz Snapdragon processor, doesn't mean it's slow. In fact, with 1GB of ROM and 768MB of RAM is can really hold it's own. Couple that with the 4 inch WVGA Super LCD screen and an 8 megapixel camera with dual LED flash and users have a solid handset.
Now sure, it's running Android 2.2 (Froyo) out of the box, but HTC is on the path to updating their handsets to Gingerbread and has been promising that the Droid Incredible 2 will get their update by summertime. Still, it's a 3G phone, so if users have 4G in their area, they may experience some speed envy with their friends and wishing they have gone the quicker path. Then again, when 4G users are reaching for their chargers Incredible 2 users will still have plenty of juice to end the day (not to mention extra cash in their wallets). For those on a budget, it's hard not to pass that up.
