While most of our attention is currently on the happenings at CES 2012 here in Las Vegas, but we couldn’t help but notice that another high-end Android phone has dropped in price today, and this time its HTC’s most recent release, the HTC Rezound, which has fallen down to $199 just two months after launching.
That price comes from the folks at Amazon and it comes after the signing of a new two-year contract.
Now, obviously, this isn’t the death knell for the HTC Rezound but it’s definitely a sign that it is struggling with the competition.
Verizon’s 4G LTE network currently boasts two other high-end smartphones in the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and the Motorola Droid RAZR, both of which have likely done serious damage to Rezound sales.
And it should only be a matter of time before the Rezound drops even further in price.
HTC is expected to announce its latest smartphone or smartphones, widely believed to be powered by NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 chip, next month at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
But, if quad-core doesn’t matter to you and you’re not thrilled about the prospect of owning a Galaxy Nexus or the Droid RAZR – or a number of the other Android devices available at the moment, a $199 HTC Rezound might be appealing to you.
You can find it for sale on Amazon if you head right here.
