Verizon has cut the price of the Samsung Fascinate in half, and has also dropped the HTC Droid Incredible and Motorola Droid R2-D2 down below $100. These price cuts might be temporary, though.
The Fascinate debuted at $200 with a two-year contract, but is now going for $100 on Verizon’s website.
The Droid Incredible also once sold for $200, but can also be purchased for $100.
At one point, the Droid R2-D2 was $250 with contract, but is now selling for the same price as the other two models.
Verizon is kicking off its “10 days of sweet deals” promotion today to celebrate its impending launch of the iPhone 4, so it’s possible all of these prices will only be available until Feb. 10.
