    I'm being a good boyfriend and giving my one and only upgrade to my girlfriend for her incredible. So i'll have to buy my droid x full retail price. Any idea how much it'll be? My best guess would be $599. Hope i'm wrong

    That's what people have been saying, although no official price has been released yet you will just have to wait and see. You could always buy your gf the incredible it is only 529 and then use your upgrade for the X. That would save you about $70 bucks

    I guess but it's pretty ridiculous when it's still on the first or second page. There's already been several clones of the question.

    That doesn't annoy people around here? I've seen forums where they ban you for doing that once because it's a question asked every day or something, haha (not that I agree with that).

    OP - From what I've seen, the price you mentioned appears to be about right.


    To the other guy, please reread the Forum Rules (link in my signature) as it's pretty clear that this kind of behavior is frowned upon.

    Like i said nobody forces you to read it if it annoys you so much then dont read it simple as that. Some people like to ask for advice which they are more then welcome to it just seems like you know everything and expect everyone else to be the same way

    I will also add that if you feel the need to go off on your fellow member, DON'T. Step back and take a breather, don't post or report the post. but by going off and being rude to members will only get you an infraction or worse. We are enforcing the Zero Tolerance Policy and will not hesitate to stamp out rude members.

    Someone in either the Best Buy pre-order thread or the main thread posted $599 at Best Buy. Best Buy's price for the DI was $599 although it cost $529 from Verizon.

    I'm hoping this is the case if I decide to pick this up.

    We know it will be around $600, so what is the reason to debate? If you folks think it will be cheaper than the Droid, take Whitney Houston's advice: Crack is whack! ;)

    "Beer", it's what's for dinner.

    I wonder when we will actually find out, do you guys think they would wait until the actual release to tell confirm the full retail price.

    I said "around" $600. It could be minus $50 from that. My guess is $600- especially due to initial demand perception and the constrained Inc issue. Not to mention Motorola have gone out of their way to push this as high-end.

    Perhaps my perception of cost is different to others hear, since $50 would not be an obstacle if I wanted the device. If it does to others, why even be interested in the device in the first place?

    No way it is over $600.

    Arent phones that have keyboards usually more then all touch screen phones


    Specs wise the incredible is a much better phone than the droid but isn't the full retail price of the incredible cheaper than the droid's retail price?

    its probably along the same lines of the incredible...i'll say 539

    yeah well you have to figure the X also has a bigger screen which costs more to make and overall is larger so probably has more parts which cost money i think it will be around $569-$599 who knows though until they release the info with the actual price all we can do is speculate

    I agree with your prices, I don't see why it would be too much higher than what you said.

    I have been working with a local seller for their Incredible for my wife and the seller is an employee of VZW. She confirmed VZW's out of contract price to be $569 also.
