Contract and off-contract pricing options detailed
A leaked shot from a Best Buy inventory appears to list the pricing for the forthcoming HTC Evo Shift 4G. According to the report by Android Police, purports that the WiMax capable phone will retail for as low as $150 on contract or $550 off-contract. Those looking to upgrade will also be charged the same $150 prices as new customers signing up to a two-year contract.
Other alternative purchase pricing options include a 12-month contract option priced at $300 up-front. Those looking upgrade their device, but who opt to switch to a 12-month plan will be charged $350.
It is expected that in addition to the WiMax connectivity, the slider phone will incorporate a 3.7-inch capactive touchscreen for touch text entry, which will supplement its full QWERTY keyboard. It is thought that the device will sport similar specs to the HTC Desire Z and will likely ship with Android 2.2 on launch.
