    We previously thought the full retail price was going to be $589, but it looks like that was just Best Buy's cost. Apparently, $699 is going to be the full retail price. Though definitely disappointing, this definitely seems more likely since the contract price is $299 (which is on the high end of Android phones).

    This phone better be great in order for me to fork over $700 for it!

    I think that article is mistaken. Best Buy ALWAYS charges more for full retail phones versus Verizon. Verizon's price is probably the $589

    The contest rules say $589. If its in the contest rules....thats gotta be the price Verizon will be selling it for.

    Then look at the Charge price on that chart. Now check Verizon website. Its $569 retail....not $699. Even the iPhone isnt $699 and $799 at the website. Droid X2 isnt $599 either.

    I'mma go with thats Best Buy's price too.

    Both prices appear correct. 589 for VZW and 699 for BB.

    This doesnt matter to me anyway....I plan on billing it to my account or getting the Costo deal.

    Hopefully I can win one.
