DROID Incredible 4G LTE confirmed to have a $50 MIR

Last week’s announcement of Verizon’s DROID Incredible 4G LTE brought speculation of pricing and possible release date among the Android community. We can’t put to rest all the rumors floating around but according to a Verizon document the DROID Inc 4G LTE will indeed be sold with a $50 mail-in rebate as part of the deal. I realize that MIR’s aren’t everyone’s favorite topic, but it’s nice to know that customers can expect to get this phone for a little cheaper than the rest of the comparable competition, e.g. T-Mobile’s HTC One S.

The DROID Inc 4G LTE looks to be a great smartphone for Verizon customers who are looking for a phone that is similar to the HTC One series yet is more affordable and comes with additional features like a microSD card slot and a removable battery. Feel free to check out our hands on video from CTIA to see what’s headed to Big Red.

U.S. Cellular Offers Huawei Ascend II Free After Mail-In Rebate

There is always going to be a place for a mid-level Android device, especially ones that are free. U.S. Celluar is now offering the Huawei Ascend II for free after a $100 mail-in rebate. With Android 2.3, a 3.5″ screen, and a 600MHz processor it’s not the strongest phone on the block, but hey it’s free. You can check the deal out and all the phone’s details from the source link below.

Sprint to drop the mail-in rebate process?

I can speak from experience, that if this rings true, and Sprint does officially drop the mail-in rebate, I will be thrilled. As will many others I’m sure. The process is long and annoying.

About 2 months ago, I bought the wife an HTC Evo Shift, and my son an LG Optimus S, both including a mail-in rebate which totaled around $200. So to make a long story short. I ‘snail mail’ the rebate to Sprint….wait….wait….nothing. A month goes by. I check the status a few times, I come to find out it gets declined. Why? I call and talk to the customer rep, and they feed me some line that we (the customer) needed to have the devices for 30 days before I can even submit the form for the rebate. As of today, we are still waiting on the rebate to show up in our mailbox. I’m going to keep the faith, and trust Sprint will get it to me in a semi-timely manner. So this information on possible cancellation of the mail-in rebate is more than welcome. And I like the sound of ‘INSTANT’ rebate!
