Kind of surprised this wasn't happening already. God knows I haven't stepped foot in a cell retail store for a long, long time, but these products are all pretty great, especially for their reasonable prices. They seem like a up-sell/convenience/impulse buy dream for places like those.

I suppose as they are all getting a little longer in the tooth (granted still top of class for their size/price), the prices are probably going down considerably for retailers. I know I nabbed my charge last year for $100 when the msrp was 150, and as far as I know it still retails around that. Sounds like a perfect high-margin product for verizon, especially when even at full retail they are comparably still worth it (compared to almost everything else out there).
