Samsung Galaxy S3 Price Drops As October Babies Launch

By  | 

The Motorola Droid Razr HD and the Razr Maxx HD have been seen starring in their own TV ad and today the devices will go on sale for $199 for the Razr HD and $299 for the Maxx HD on Verizon. It seems that this has also sparked a new price cycle on carriers and it starts with Amazon Wireless who is now offering the Samsung Galaxy S3 for $99 on Sprint and Verizon. This is a drop down from the price of $199, which means you save $100.

Samsung Galaxy S3 price drops as Motorola DROID RAZR HD and Galaxy Note 2 arrive

Sprint of course may want to make way for the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 which will be out on 25th October and will cost $299. Google of course have teamed up with Motorola following the $12.5 billion acquisition and Motorola have been in alliance, and a profitable one at that, and the two Droids will help that to continue. However bear in mind that both of these new handsets come with ICS and not Jelly Bean, which is a let-down.

On saying this both Motorola DROID RAZR HD handsets are top of the range and have Super AMOLED displays in HD of 4.7 inches. They run on 1.5GHz dual core processors from Snapdragon and they have an 8 megapixel camera that is capable of taking video at 1080p. The handsets have been designed in the popular Kevlar fibre.

The two Droids promise excellent battery life as the Razr HD has a battery of 2530mAh and the Maxx a 3300mAh battery. These are said to offer 16 and 21 hours of usage without the need for charging. Head over to Verizon today if you want to be among the first to get your hands on either of the handsets.

As for the Samsung Galaxy S3, at $99 it is a steal!
