HTC EVO 4G falls to $50 at Best Buy, $150 at Sprint

Now that the HTC EVO 3D's price has been officially confirmed to be $199.99, the original EVO 4G obviously can't continue to be sold for that figure too. Sure, it's been on sale here and there for less than $100 during the past year, but it's only now that its successor has been priced that the first-gen EVO is getting a permanent price cut.

Sprint has cut the cost by $50 so that any new customer who simply can't wait until the 24th for the second-gen EVO (third-gen if you count the EVO Shift, which I don't) can buy the year-old phone for $149.99 with new service or eligible upgrade. Best Buy has even better deal, offering the phone for just $49.99 with new two-year contract.

While it seems insane to think that anyone would buy an "old" phone when a brand new one is just weeks away from release, we need to remember that not everyone is interested in having the latest and greatest. $50 is also an incredible deal for an awesome phone that ships with Android 2.3 and already has an immense following and active community.
