Let's hope so. But I doubt it, probably 529ish.
Edit: probably not foudn this in the fine print on Sprint's nexus page, "Phone Offer: Offer ends 06/04/11. While supplies last. $399.99 (two-year price) - $200.00 (instant savings) = $199.99 (final price)." So the 2-year price is really 399.99 and they usually add 150 to that for out of contract price so probably around 549.99

Its funny how Sprint released this phone after they ended the instant rebate on May 7th. Sure its going to be $199.99 at the Sprint store, but you will probably shell out $299 with a mail in rebate of $100. This is the problem with Sprint, they already shot themselves in the foot with the Nexus S.
I have decided to go with Verizon and get the ThunderBolt. In no time Google will have a phone on the LTE network.

I was told why they stopped the instant rebate is to help prevent people from fliping the phone on ebay/craiglist. By forcing the actual rebate it requires the person activating the phone to keep it active on that upgrade line for 30days.Pearl >curve8900 >curve8330 >Sprint HTC Hero >HTC EVO 4G>Optimus S >Nexus S 4G >HTC EVO 4G >Epic Touch 4G>Galaxy Nexus>HTC One S

Won't sprint offer a "First to Buy" opportunity to Premier members a few days prior to 5/8? I believe this was done with the Echo. Was there a FTB offered for the Evo, Epic or Shift?
I'd like to go through Sprint if I can avoid the MIR. Assuming there is no MIR, do you have to pay tax on $299 (as opposed to $199)?

The phone has a full retail of $499.99
The price is $199 for a 2 year contract after a $200 instant rebate and a $100 mail in rebate.
What the site isn't showing is the info regarding the MIR since the instant rebate promotion does not end till the 7th of May.
