Much like what Dell
started doing with the Motorola DROID, Amazon has appeared to start offering the handset at a mind boggling price of only $49.99 on contract. When you look at the bloated price of $199.99 that Verizon stores are asking out of you for this handset, Amazon's deal is by far more appealing – the best part of it is that it's available for both new and existing customers. Generally these insane deals are usually reserved for new customers that wireless providers eye as big money, but the notion that even existing customers can take up this offer makes it even sweeter. Additionally, Amazon is throwing in free shipping so that the only thing you'll need to worry about at the time of purchase if paying for the handset and all applicable taxes associated with the transaction. Now the only stipulation that Amazon is asking is that if “you do not activate or extend a line of service in connection with this device, or if your service is canceled/disconnected before 181 consecutive days, AmazonWireless.com will charge you $250 per device, plus applicable taxes.” Despite that one obvious item, you won't have to worry about it if you intend on keeping and using the handset for your needs. With some newer and more powerful Android handsets on the horizon, these extremely low prices will make it difficult for customers to choose which will be the best fit for them.
