DROID RAZR Will Be $649 at Full Retail?

Would you be willing to pay $649 full retail for the DROID RAZR? We are hearing that the price is expected to drop in at just that when it finally hits stores in the next couple of weeks. The pre-order goes down this Thursday, so we should get confirmation on it then. I’m just wondering why phones are now jumping up into the Apple iPhone over-priced model?

Over the last few months we had seen Verizon slash the full retail prices on all of its phones to well below what used to be the standard of $599. Jumping above that scares me some. And not that this phone lacks the specs to last you for a long time, but the idea that the next wave of super phones will head into the $650+ realm is something we should all be worried about. Higher data costs along with more expensive phones? Yikes.

And what does this mean for the Galaxy Nexus? We have seen contract pricing at $299 which was expected. With 16GB and 32GB models apparently on the way though, could we see iDevice-like pricing at $649 and $749? Hmmm.

Sort of comical to think that Dan just so happened to have written up a post yesterday about the outrageous prices we are now seeing on mobile phones.

Cheers ___!

    Does anyone realize its cheaper to add another line on family plan, buy the phone at $299, move the Razr to your own line, place a dumb phone on your new line, pay $10 per month more over 24 months? Total cost is $540. Plus $240 of that is spread out over 24 months interest free. Best deal out there!

    Blur with a 1 g of ddr2 is super good. The bionic does not lag at all. You are still living in the times of the 256 and 516 memory ram.

    People do not want to understand that the most important features moto provides them to us. Call quality, build quality and radios. The software has improve as well.

    It seams like there over pricing the phones to test the consumers waters. They probably figure that if some are willing to pay iPhone like prices, they might be able to get away with it.
