Sponsor post: Droid X and Samsung Vibrant now available for special online price

Two of the summer’s hottest Android phones are now on sale for a special introductory price.

The T-Mobile Vibrant and Verizon Droid X both offer 45nm processors, which offer a new level of performance and reduced power consumption. There are always faster devices around the corner, but these phones offer a nice performance boost over the Snapdragon based phones and they will get even faster once Android 2.2 is released.

Recent big launches from HTC have sold out quickly, but Verizon claims they will have plenty of Droid X phones and Samsung also thinks they can meet demand for the Galaxy S.

You can rush to your local retail store and wait in line this morning to pick up either phone or you can quickly order from our online store. Through our partnership with Simplexity we are able to offer these phones at special online pricing, so take advantage of it while you can.

T-Mobile Samsung Vibrant: New customers can pick up the Vibrant for $149 with 2-year contract. Exiting users who are eligible for an upgrade can also receive the special pricing. I believe our contract pricing is the lowest you will find, but if you want to grap the phone off-contract for full price then T-Mobile.com has it for $499.

Verizon Motorola Droid X: If you are on Verizon and interested in the Droid X, then you will have to click to see pricing. The offer is a special introductory price, so hurry while the phone is in stock. Quantities are limited. Those looking to pick the phone up off-contract can grab the Droid X for $569 from Verizon.com.

    My local T-mo corporate store here in Columbia, SC absolutely refused to sell me a Vibrant today. The girl said they had them in the back of the store, and had them for a few days. She then told me they will not sell them for 2-3 weeks. And they want me to switch from AT&T to them? Not when the people that work at the only T-mo corporate store in my city are bitches and assholes!

    I’ll just wait until Sunday and get the Captivate from AT&T. And I’ll be able to keep my thousands and thousands of saved up roll over minutes.

    I’m still on the fence about this phone. Me and my wife are looking to setup a new service, and we want to go with T-Mo, but I’m not sure if I should use this opportunity to grab this phone or wait? Thanks for sharing!

    Normally I would be super excited about the droid x but with the news that motorola installed a self district fuse on the phone if the boot leader gets altered really turns me off.

    Basically it is going to be incredibly difficult if not impossible to hack this phone, which totally goes against the principles of android.

    I would recommend people just wait for the incredible which has already been rooted, and is an amazing phone.

    Sponsor post? WTF!

    It seems now only a ‘short wait’ until the integrity and bias opinions disappear, in favor for a sponsor paid ‘review’!

    I’m no longer going to trust the reviews/hype of this site!

    Goodbye Android and me – I seen you start, but I will not see you end.

      No one paid me to post this. I just labeled it ‘sponsor post’ as in sponsored by the Android and Me phone store. I wanted it to be clearly identified as a non-news post so people who are not interested in buying the phones can see that and skip over it.

        Okay – just sounds like you received a kick back for that post. Maybe try ‘Android and Me Store Special:’. No harm in a few self-promos.

    So much for having plenty of Droid X’s ready in stores. My local store sold out before noon, so I have to get mine overnighted

    I’m still on the fence about getting a Vibrant. While it does seem impressive (despite lacking the FFC), and I’m in need of an upgrade for my G1, I’m wondering if it’s worth waiting to see what Project Emerald is all about. I generally like HTC hardware better than Samsung’s (not too keen on the Vibrant’s iPhone-like design) anyway, and Emerald will supposedly be the first HSPA+ phone, so it might be worth waiting for that extra speed too.
