Good news for anyone who's been sneaking sidelong glances at the HTC One X, one of the best Android phones in general and by far the best available on AT&T. As rumors had foretold, the handset's price has been cut in half, from $200 to $100. That's one heckuva deal.

To recap, for those not familiar, this means that for $100 (and a hefty new contract) you get a beautiful 4.7-inch display, a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, and download speeds and battery life that are near-unprecedented. And this isn't an old warhorse being sent out to pasture, like last winter's Nexus Galaxy was when it got its $100 price shave. The One X has been out barely three months.
