3 price drops in about 3 months, talk about a dog of a handset that Asda are desperately trying to clear....

This is basically the same phone as the Sensation, but with the battery from the XE.
Oh, and that 3D sh*t. Just shows how well 3D has been accepted by the general populace.
NOT!
Other than that it's a damned fine handset and for that price? If it goes down any more my son will get a bloody brilliant phone for his birthday :)

And more RAM than both of them.

With the amount of heat this was getting on HUKD, I'm guessing they're having no problems clearing it and must be reordering and making some kind of profit on it at this price.

As Blizz said, of course they're making money on this. Asda have obviously found that selling lots of units for a small profit each is out-earning selling few units at a high profit each. Economics 101 mate.

I think it's a little naive to think that whatever a retail store is selling, they're making a profit on it. Given the handsets popularity i'm guessing very strongly that they're clearing it at a cost, less than what they purchased it at.

Given the fire sell price, I doubt they will ever re-order the product, or HTC having a cost price of £172 on the product.

Economics 101 doesn't suggest commercial business decisions ensure that every product is sold at a profit. 80% of your margin comes from 20% of your products. There's 80% of products that wont be sold at the margin levels that they want or even at a break-even. That's retail economics 101.
