The HTC DROID Incredible 4G may be right around the corner, but if you’re looking to save some cash and want a new phone today, the HTC Rezound might be exactly what you’re looking for. Both Verizon and Amazon Wireless have dropped the price of the HTC Rezound to just $49.99 with a new two year contract, making it the cheapest phone with a dual-core processor and a 720p HD display.

The best part about the new price is that Verizon may release the Rezound’s Android 4.0.3 update by the end of this week which should boost performance and improve battery life (one of the major points of contention for current customers). The Ice Cream Sandwich update comes with dozens of new features and a redesigned Sense 3.6 skin which is a slight improvement over its current iteration. For a closer look at the device, check out a full HTC Rezound review.

Is $49.99 a fair price for a dual-core phone with a 720p display, 32GB of included storage (16 GB internal and 16GB microSD card), $100 pair of Beat Audio headphones and a fairly decent 8 megapixel camera?
