Despite the recent phablet craze, the price of the new Droid DNA is dropping. The Droid DNA boasts a five inch super LCD3 capacitive touchscreen, which qualifies it as a phablet, or a tablet-phone hybrid. These extra large screens are being put on pocket devices in multiple countries and the product type looks like its here to stay.
However, the Droid DNA has seen its price drop from $200.00 to what is now $99.00! This is due to Verizon making a series of promotional offers available only to current and prospective Verizon members. This marketing strategy could pay off, as once a number of customers move to Verizon for the discounted DNA, they will be under contract and have to stay with Verizon for a number of years.
What Verizon has done has made a demand for their service and product, being the Droid DNA. Verizon customers can get the phone at $150.00, down from the $200.00 price tag the phone had originally. An additional promotion, through letstalk.com, allows a knowledgeable Verizon customer get the phone for $120.00.
Amazon wireless is where customers can find the Droid DNA for $99.00. This price is only for people who are not currently Verizon customers and comes with a contract of continued service. Different durations of this contract are available, starting at one year.
For a customer who wants a good deal on the Droid DNA and is not already a Verizon member, this promotional offer can be a great opportunity.
However, some consumers who want this product may live in areas that does not have the best Verizon coverage. Because the deal is only available through Verizon, consumers must do the research themselves to determine if Verizon would be a good service provider for their area before buying the phone and signing the contract.
