Verizon Price Leak Puts LG Revolution at $250, Moto Droid X2 at $200


If you’ve been eyeing a smartphone that’s lined-up to arrive with Verizon but have been a bit nervous about what your dream phone will end up costing, we may have some relief in store for you, as a leaked copy of the pricing structure for several upcoming Verizon models has arrived.

While some of the prices are a relief, if only because they don’t seem too over-inflated, a few stand out as models for which Verizon thinks you’ll pay a premium. The Droid Charge is still listed at $300, the same as on the last price sheet that leaked out, making it one of the carrier’s most expensive on-contract smartphones (meeting the 32GB iPhone 4). While the Charge has some decent hardware, it may not be so much more impressive than other models to demand that kind of money.

New to the list, we now have prices for the LG Revolution and the Motorola Droid X2. The Revolution’s price is a little more bearable than the Charge’s, lining up with the Thunderbolt at $250. It seems likely at this point that Verizon doesn’t intend to release any new LTE smartphones at the traditional $200 level, though we should see some dip down there as they age and are replaced with newer LTE models at the top of the food chain.

The Droid X2, at least, is priced just where we would expect it to be, at around $200. All these prices may fluctuate at Verizon’s whim, but according to our tipster, the numbers on this sheet match what Verizon’s saying at the moment.
