Few smartphones have generated as much buzz as the HTC One X, partly because we’ve known about it for so long prior to its U.S. release by AT&T and partly because of its impressive feature-set.
Well, that release occurred today, and AT&T is selling HTC’s latest handset for $199 with a two-year contract.
But if you want to save yourself $50, you can head over to Amazon.com, where the same Android phone can be yours for $149 – with contract requirements of course – shipped free.
Upgrade fees may apply irrespective of where you purchase an AT&T Phone.

Google is now selling an unlocked GSM version of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus Android phone for $399. This model of the Galaxy Nexus will work on both AT&T and T-Mobile wireless networks and is unlocked and contract free. It’ll even work with high speed HSDA+ networks, where available.
This isn’t the first time Google has played the smartphone sales game, but we’re not entirely sure why the company has decided to get back on the horse when it was thrown off so sharply the last go around. Still, at $399 it’s cheaper than unlocked versions of the phone sold by Amazon and other online retailers. And for about double what Verizon and Sprint charge for an on-contract version of the phone, it’s a pretty fair price.
Of course, if you want a Galaxy Nexus and don’t mind Verizon or two-year contracts, you can nab the phone for less than $50 here and here.
Verizon Wireless is still selling Google’s latest flagship Android phone, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, for $299 with a two-year contract. If you’re already a Verizon customer, you can beat that price by $70, but if you’re with Sprint, AT&T, T-Mobile or another U.S. wireless carrier and have your heart set on the Galaxy Nexus, you can now get the first and (currently) only Android 4.0 phone for just $99.
Amazon Wireless has the Galaxy Nexus for $99 if you sign up for a new Verizon account with a two-year contract. Amazon’s price for an upgrade is $259, though Wirefly has set the upgrade price at $229.
Amazon’s $99 price for new Verizon Wireless accounts may not last, so if you’ve been wanting a Galaxy Nexus and you’re with another carrier, don’t want too long…
Unlike hard drive prices, the cost of microSD cards continue to fall. In fact, you can now get a Class 2 SanDisk 16GB microSDHC memory card at Amazon.com for just $5.95 plus shipping.
This is a fantastic deal, particularly considering that at big-box retail stores like Wal-Mart and Office Depot a 16GB microSD card can cost as much as $25 or $30.
Price may change at any time.
As recently as last week, the best price for the Verizon Wireless Droid RAZR was $199 with a new two-year contract; but now there’s a newer low price for the thinnest Android phone in the world: $0.01.
Amazon.com has the RAZR for one cent, but this price is only good when you sign up for a new Verizon Wireless account and sign a two-year service agreement. The direct Verizon price is $299, and the best upgrade price remains $219 at Wirefly.com.
