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.

We’re constantly getting questions about prepaid Android phones. While the situation hasn’t changed all that much in recent months, there are new prepaid Android options dropping here and there, including the Samsung Galaxy Precedent.
The Galaxy Precedent is available on the Straight Talk service, which offers unlimited talk, text and data for a very attractive $45 per month with no commitment. Straight Talk is powered by different wireless carriers, but the phones and service cards are available only through Wal-Mart.
Right now, Wal-Mart.com is offering the Galaxy Precedent for less than $130, which is a pretty great deal for an Android phone without a contract subsidy.
Features include Android 2.2, a 3.2-inch touchscreen, a 2MP camera, an 800MHz CPU, a 1500mAh battery for up to 6 hours of talk time, and a microSD memory card slot for additional storage over the pretty paltry 380MB of onboard memory (a 2GB card is included). The phone weighs in at 3.8-ounces.
The new T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S II “4G” Android smartphone is $279 if purchased at a T-Mobile store or at the carrier’s web site, though you do get a $50 mail-in rebate which brings the final price to $229. However, you can skip the mail-in rebate and still save $50 by purchasing from Wirefly.
Wirefly has the T-Mobile Galaxy S II for $179 when you sign up for a new account and agree to a two-year service commitment. If you’re already a T-Mobile subscriber and are eligible for an upgrade, the price increases by $20 to $179, no mail-in rebate required.
Update: LetsTalk.com has the phone for $149 with a new account.
Through Monday, June 20th, Wirefly is offering an additional $50 off the price of the Verizon Wireless Droid Charge Android phone with the coupon code CHARGE620. You must use the link below in order to take advantage of the coupon code:

This brings the final price of the Droid Charge to $129. Good on new contracts and contract upgrades. Price for upgrade $149. Shipping and activation also free.
The HTC Droid Incredible 2 launched on Verizon Wireless yesterday for a direct price of $199 with a two-year contract – but if you’re eying the latest Verizon Android phone, you can nab one for about half that price.
Amazon and LetsTalk.com are each offering the Droid Incredible 2 for $99 with a new two-year contract at checkout. This price applies to new Verizon Wireless accounts only; if you’re already a Verizon customer and are eligible for an upgrade, the price at each retailer jumps to $149, still $50 less than the direct Verizon Wireless price.
And if you order from Amazon, you also qualify for the $25 Appstore credit through May 1st.
