The Nokia Lumia Icon was announced in February this year and shortly after that arrived at Verizon with a $199.99 price tag. That’s a pretty standard price range for a smartphone of its class; however, if you weren’t desperate enough to grab the phone immediately after its launch, it was a smart move as the device just got cheaper and is now on sale for $49.99 on contract. In other words, the Lumia Icon from Verizon can be had for one fourth of its initial price. If you are not into lengthy agreements, the phone is also available with Verizon Edge for $27.49 per month, or $549.99 outright.
