One penny. That’s what it’ll cost you this weekend for some of the newest and hottest smartphones around.
Amazon is running a $0.01 promotion for two Windows 7 phones, the HTC Surround and LG Quantum, saith Engadget. That’s the same price it’s charging for the BlackBerry Torch. Prefer Android? A penny will buy you the Motorola Droid 2 (which I paid $200 for three months ago) or the HTC Incredible, among others.
Dave took a close look two months ago at how $199 became the magic price for smartphones. Looks like that price is plunging fast. Yes, we all know the real cost of a smartphone is on the back-end when you shell out $100+ each month for a voice/data plan, but this is still a pretty sweet deal. -Stacy
