Best Buy taking Droid orders with instant rebate

Best Buy starts taking pre-orders for the Motorola Droid for Verizon Wireless, doing away with the mail-in rebate.

On Wednesday, Verizon Wirelessofficially announced that its first Google Android device, the Motorola Droid, would hit streets on November 6 with a price tag of $199.99. Of course, to get that price, you need to sign up for a two-year contract and deal with a $100 mail-in rebate; however Best Buy Mobile is making things just a bit easier for customers.

According to the consumer electronics retailer on Thursday, it is now taking preorders for the Droid and will not require a mail-in rebate. An instant rebate will be applied at the point of purchase, so you'll pay $199.99 upfront (taxes excluded, obviously) and not $299.99 like you would at Verizon. Sounds like a pretty good deal to us. Who's in?
