Sprint NOT doing one for the little guy. Touch Pro2 discount denied (for non business users).

Sad sad day indeed for WinMo lovers looking to upgrade on the cheap to the Touch Pro2 on Sprint. Yesterday we posted an article praising Sprint (which is a rarity) for their apparent generosity to the little folks and for finally having a bit of common sense trickle into Sprint HQ with the news of a price drop for the Touch Pro2: $349 down to $199. Bad news ahead folks. While the $199 discount price is in fact real, it’s only available to businesses with 100 or more lines of service. Ouch. A Sprint rep wrote in to Brighthand to clear the air saying:

Starting tomorrow, the price drop for HTC TouchPro2 from Sprint is only available to corporate liable customers with 100+ lines. All other channels will sell at original price $349.99 with a two-year service agreement and after $100 mail-in rebate.

So it appears as if you and I the little guys will have to continue to eye that $349 price tag, trying to figure out where they stuffed all of that apparent value at. If any other carrier wants to make a better impression and actually move some of these over priced phones, dropping the price would be an amazing start.

      Some call it cheap others call it frugal. To each his own.
