Verizon drops DROID BIONIC to $99 without SD card

The DROID RAZR got the ball rolling, but it seems that Verizon's price cutting spree is continuing to older models as well. The Motorola DROID BIONIC, Moto's first LTE phone, is now just $99 without the formerly included MicroSD card. The price change is effective immediately on Verizon's website, though of course you'll have to sign a new or renewed 2-year contract to get the deal. The phone still has 16GB of internal storage, and should you wish to add your own via the recently vacated card slot, 16GB cards can be had for about $30-40 USD.

Sony’s Tablet S gets a $100 price cut

Hey Sony, you know that the holidays are over now, right? Betanews reports that the company's primary Android Honeycomb tablet, the Tablet S, is seeing a permanent price reduction by a cool $100. That brings the 16GB version down to $399 (in line with the original Eee Pad Transformer) and the 32GB version down to $499, directly competing with the 16GB iPad 2. There's no word from Sony on the reasoning behind the price cut, but with low-cost Android tablets making a big splash this quarter, it's likely that sales of the Tablet S haven't been all that great.
