    I was wondering if it was possible that this phone would show up as part of a Verizon or best buy Black Friday sale, do new phones often take part in these sales? And if not, are there other ways to get this phone for under the $300 price tag?

    Extremely doubtful there would be a price drop that soon after release- if the phone is even released before Black Friday.

    Agreed. It would be way too soon for any sort of a price drop.

    Yeah, doubtful they'll drop the price so soon. I imagine it will be out before Black Friday though, just based on the UK release date.

    I didn't mean a price drop, more of a "to the first 2 people who show up, get a free nexus!" because I am more than happy to wait in line all night to save $300.

    Thanks for the grim answers :(

    Oh sorry never heard of such deals.

    I'm not crazy enough to go out on Black Friday.

    Its not neccesairly true they won't have a sale or someone won't be offering it. I got my D1 on a black Friday sale for 50 bucks from dell mobility when it was 199 at verizon. Remember the D1 came out in November of 09.

    Sounds like you opened a new line for the deal, $50 for the OG 2 weeks after it's release is pretty impressive.

    Actually no at the time the line was 6yrs old. Dellmobility.com has always been known to have way lower prices then everyone. Even amazon was running a deal on it at the time but they couldn't touch dells site. I just hope there's faith the nexus could be cheaper somewhere during black friday :)

    But yes indeed I got lucky cause it was pretty impressive.

    It is not unlikely that you will find a deal, though it will more closely resemble the Costco deal for the Bionic. Charge full price (or close to it) but throw in a bunch of accessories. Even Best Buy has been doing that on Black Friday.
