Sprint Motorola i1 Price And Contract Subsidy Announced

It’s been a long time since I wrote about the 3.1-inches Android handset from Motorola – the i1. Last time, I wrote about it, the device was just being announced on SoutherLINC Wireless at a price of $199.99 with a two year contract and otherwise at $274.99 without contract.

Now, we have heard that the device is being launched on Sprint as well. Well, quite evidently, the features have not changed. It’s still the Android 1.5 handset that comes packed with a 16GB microSD card and several other standard features. However, the recently announced prices are a bit different. Now, Sprint users can pick one device from the website at a price of $349.99 without contract. With a two year contract though, you can manage to secure a device at $150 after an instant rebate.

Want to check out the device before ordering? No problem. Wait until August 8 when the device will hit the Sprint stores.
