BillShrink shows us that the Droid is as expensive as the iPhone 3GS

Not amazing news but interesting nonetheless: Billshrink, a site dedicated to “saving you money” compared the total cost of ownership in the 3GS, the Pre, the MyTouch 3G, and the Droid. They found that TCO for an unlimited rate plan costs $3,799, the same as the iPhone 3GS. Both the Pre and the MyTouch are over $1,200 cheaper.

You’re obviously paying for hype and, it can be said, features here so you’ll want to factor that in as well. I’m bullish on the Droid so feel free to drop four grand if you must when it launches. I’m sticking with the other money sinkhole, the 3GS.
