As was previously rumored, Best Buy has lowered the pricing on the Sprint branded HTC Hero and the Samsung Moment.
This offer is immediately available and was noted as being a special offer for the holidays. In other words it does not appear to be a permanent price drop, but that said, it was noted as running “through December.” So it looks like you have some time to decide.
Anyway, new customers that are willing to sign a two-year agreement with Sprint are now able to pick up that Hero or Moment for just $99.99. And that price is just what it says, the rebates are instant so nothing to fill out and nothing to mail in.
And while neither of these handsets are running Android 2.0, in fact they are still running Android 1.5, but it is hard to argue with a $100 smartphone.
