Cingular cuts ROKR price by $100

Cingular has slashed the price of Motorola’s iTunes-enabled ROKR phone by $100. The phone, which was introduced two months ago, now sells for $149.99 with a two year contract. The price cut is apparently due to poor sales and the cold reception from consumers. Motorola sold about 83,000 ROKR phones per week in the first weeks after the official unveiling. In comparison, the company’s top-selling RAZR sells 500,000 units per week on average.

It’s been free on O2 in the UK since it came out… I didn’t realise people had to pay so much for a contract phone over there.

83k per week over 52 weeks would be 4 million a year.

That would be a lot for a DAP but maybe not so much for a cell phone.
