HTC EVO 3D now on Amazon: $179.99 with contract, $469.99 without


With Sprint, Best Buy, Radio Shack, Target, and Wirefly all putting up their best offers to try to entice potential customers to purchase the HTC EVO 3D from their establishments, most people have undoubtedly been waiting for Amazon to show its hand.

It's by no means a royal flush, but a $20-$30 savings off many of its competitors' prices is a solid full house. Like Wirefly, Amazon's new contract and eligible upgrade cost of the phone is $179.99—a respectable $20 off the standard $199.99 that most other stores are advertising. Where Amazon has everyone beat is in its price for the off-contract phone (you know, the kind you could win from G&E). While the competition lists the full cost at $499.99 or $599.99, the uber-retailer will let you have it for $469.99.

It may not be as big of a discount as many were hoping to see from Amazon, but it's the lowest price (that doesn't involve a trade-in) we've seen so far. And you know they'll end up selling it for less than that eventually; they first put up the EVO 4G for $99.99 in October 2010, five months after the phone's release, so don't be surprised to see the EVO 3D drop down to a similar level—even if only for a limited time—before the year is up.
