Sprint does one for the little guy. Drops Touch Pro2 down to $199 [Update]

sprint-touch-pro-2Even though I’m not very well versed (read: not at all) in the Windows Mobile world, the Touch Pro2 is a striking handset with good looking hardware and some pretty decent specs to boot. The sky high price tag a couple retailers such as Sprint and T-Mobile were charging was a huge sticking point however. Sure the TP2 is a good phone, but is it $349 good? Many and I would venture to say most would claim “No”. Noticing the math error, Sprint has gone ahead and restored some sense of civility to their high end line up by bringing the TP2 price tag down a few notches where it should be more widely accepted. The price by the way comes in at $199 though it’s worth noting you’re going to have to do the whole MIR tango to get your cash back. Still it’s a lot better than before. With Sprint pulling back on the price as well as Verizon’s already low TP2 price means we could see TMO bring their TP2 asking price crashing down as well. Hey you know how it is — when businesses compete, the consumer wins.

By the way, if you happen to be one of the poor souls reading this and simultaneously planning to bash your face into the screen you may want to hold off and give eCare a call. Doing so could net you a $100 credit. That is of course if you purchased your TP2 within the last 30 days. Day 31?….resume face smashing plans…

    Nice article, but for those tired of being overcharged by wireless providers, I thought I’d add that I work for the consumer advocacy division of the company Validas where we electronically audit and subsequently reduce the average cell bill by 22 percent though our website, http://www.fixmycellbill.com. Put simply, Validas guards against frivolous and unnecessary charges that inflate your cell bill more than it should be for your usage. You can find out for free if fixmycellbill.com can modify your plan to better suit your needs by going to the website.

    For more information, check out Validas in the media, most recently on Fox News at http://www.myfoxtampabay.com/dpp/consumer/conlaw/lower_cell_phone_bills_072409 .

    Good luck to everyone reading on cutting your wireless costs, especially in light of this tough economy.
