Motorola Charm Expected to Run $189 [UPDATE 2]
The next Android-powered handset from T-Mobile, the Motorola Charm, has yet to be officially tapped with a price tag or release date. Rumors have been circulating for weeks that the launch will happen in a couple of weeks with August 25th mentioned time and again. We’ve seen hints that the phone will be part of T-Mobile’s back to school promotion possibly with a free-after-rebate deal. But let’s assume the phone isn’t part of a sale. What would the cost be? According to iwebadroid, we can expect it (translated) to carry a $189.99 price point with a 2-year contract, and $309.99 outright.
UPDATE: BUT WAIT! There’s more! Our friend Kyle (@TheDroidGuy) snapped a picture of the phone at his local store showing a considerably lower $114 price. Check his pic after the jump.As a refresher, the Charm features a new form Blackberry-esque factor and features a 2.8-inch touch screen, a full QWERTY keyboard, and a BACKTRACK navigation pad on the back of the handset. Other details include Adobe Flash Lite, a 3-megapixel camera, pinch zooming, multi-touch, and corporate email capability.
UPDATE 2: How low can you go? Check out the following image, courtesy of a reader of ours named Adam. He spotted the Charm at his store with a $75 sticker. Yeah, we’re as confused as you guys are at this point.
