DROIDX2 Receives $199 Minimum Advertised Price, LG Revolution at $249

The DROIDX2 and LG Revolution have been MAP’d!  That’s minimum advertised price for those new to this game.  Basically, this is the minimum price that anyone is allowed to advertise these products at when they launch, but is not necessarily a sign of what you’ll pay at the register.  Remember that Verizon is now allowed to toss out instant discounts in some cases instead of making you deal with those pesky little rebates that used to drive us all nuts.  Oh, and the dates up there are not release dates, but the period of time that the MAP must be honored.  A device landing on this list is usually a pretty good sign that it’ll be here soon though.

The DROID Charge and Incredible 2 should look familiar since we first reported on their MAPs just a few weeks ago.  For Samsung’s sake, they better hope that $299 is the biggest misprint in the history of MAP’d sheets or they better surprise us with a dual-core.

Cheers ___!

    yea.. who are. Let’s see the Bionic info.

  • Lucky04

    After seeing this, im scsred to see what the Bionic will cost. There is no justification as to why the Charge is $300 and the Revolution is $250. Im just not understanding. I do know that I will be up at midnight to order the Bionic on amazon!!!!!!!! This is a pure rip off!!!!

    Man, I don’t know what to get anymore… I’ve been waiting for the Bionic sense January, like many others, but with all of these other cool phones coming out… I can only wait so long. What do you guys think? Wait for the Bionic or get something else???

    Why the hell are these LTE phones over $200? Do they come with a crap load of memory or something?

    I am not spending over $200 @ a 2 year contract phone.

        Cause the Incredible 2 doesn’t have an FFC. Ever hear of Wifi?

  • Bigsike

    One day they should make a phone called the Droid Bionic ……and release it :p

    wow, the guys at samsung need to put the pipe down. $299? really?

    • Jroc869

      I think what happens is, everyone at verizon is hitting the pipe so phone manufacturers are pressured into hitting it as well.

  • Vanilla Ice

    i wonder how much dual-core phones will cost. $350-$400 hmmmmmmm.

      Without looking I’m pretty sure the x2 is dual core.

  • Dbzster

    Does MAP advertising start before the device comes out? Or is this sheet telling us the mother****** Thunderbolt should have been out 1/21?

    Anyways, NO ONE WILL BUY THE CHARGE if its 300 dollars and no promises up to keep Android updated. And may I ask what the allure of the LG Revolution is now that TB can surf 4G/3G while on the phone?

      Reading comprehension isn’t my strongest skill, but I think Dr. Droid answered your question when he stated, “Oh, and the dates up there are not release dates, but the period of time that the MAP must be honored.” I take this to mean that advertising prior to the release date (or any time between the listed dates) must not included a lower price.

      I also agree the VZW is “charging” way too much for the Charge. :-)

    Well, that confirms the Droid X2 being 3G.

    • Booboolala2000

      Was thinking the same thing. If it costs less than the Bolt, it is definitely 3g. I’m wondering if the D3 is even going to be LTE? I think motorola will release their first LTE handset after summer. Maybe even in 2012, they probably wanna see how the bolt works on gingerbread.

      And the incredible. Happy with my bolt and data plan.
