Droid Razr free at Best Buy today with new contract
The original Razr smartphone had a good run of a year before it became a giveaway in the eyes of retailers.
Today is a sobering one for manyowners like me. We're officially walking around with smartphones that are almost worthless, at least from the perspective of one major retailer.
Best Buy is letting go of the basic 16GB Droid Razr 4G LTE phone for free with a new Verizon contract for today only. I paid $199 for mine with the same strings attached about eight months ago.
If you're the kind of person who can live without the latest version of Android (the Razr comes with Gingerbread, but you should receive the upgrade over the air after activating and there's word Jelly Bean could be pushed out soon) and absolute top-notch hardware like the Galaxy S III or the Google Nexus 4, then this is probably the best deal going on a new smartphone right now.
Then again, there could be more big deals just around the corner withcoming up, although this year it starts early with a Black Thanksgiving evening. (That just doesn't sound right.)
