Minneapolis – Price competition in Android-based
smartphones heated up with Best Buy Mobile’s decision to reduce the price of
two Sprint-network models to $99.99 from $179 through December.
The two models
are the HTC Hero and Samsung Moment. Their new prices are with instant rebates
and new two-year activation.
On Nov. 6, Verizon
Wireless began offering the HTC-made Android-based Droid
Eris at $99.99 and the Motorola-made Droid at $199.
