The glut of smartphones hitting the market in the last few months could be a win-win for the consumer, especially as prices are slashed. There are places you can get the Palm Pre for less than half the price of when it debuted back in June.
Now, several sources are reporting that Apple and AT&T might be mulling selling the 8GB version of the iPhone 3G S for $99. The price break could come soon, they say, in order to compete with the Motorola Droid from Verizon during the holiday season. The Droid goes on sale Friday.
While the Droid will sell for $200, the Droid Eris was announced today. It’s a simplified version that’s being called Verizon’s version of the HTC Hero. It will sell for $99 after the $100 mail-in rebate.
