Now let’s jump over to LetsTalk. During November they are having a buy one, get one free sale, on many of their smart phones. They also have Windows 7 phones on sale.

With the competition ramping up between Android, Apple, Windows, and Blackberry phones, consumers can save money by doing a bit of research before they buy. Generally speaking, prices on phones from these two major online cell phone distributors, are lower than the prices found in brick-and-mortar stores, especially with the newer, high end, phones. The phones listed above are just examples. See their respective sites for deals on other phones.
