Verizon drops price of Motorola Droid

Verizon drops price of Motorola Droid While there are daily rumors about the upcoming Droid Xtreme and Droid 2 devices, Verizon has not forgot about the original Motorola Droid device, which the carrier says still has excellent sales.
The carrier has dropped the price of the device to $149.99 with two-year contract, while concurrently running the BOGO (buy one get one free) promotion on the device.

Analysts are viewing the move as a way to slowly but surely clear out inventory of the device, to make way for the anticipated launch of the Droid X in July, and the Droid 2 sometime later in the summer.

The device had been selling for $199.99 with contract, and with retail stores selling at that price after mail-in-rebate, which can be a hassle. Ordering from the site removes the rebate part.

What is known (unconfirmed) of the Droid X is a large 4.3-inch screen, 16GB of internal storage, a 1Ghz Snapdragon processor, an HDMI-out port, an 8MP camera and 720p video recording.

When I got mine it was $130 BOGO...seems like they raised the price. No mail-in rebate, just $130 BOGO.
