Samsung Droid Charge and LG Revolution drop down to $0.01 courtesy of Amazon
Dramatically separating itself from the pack, the thunderous HTC ThunderBolt was recently reduced in priced to $0.01 on-contract thanks to Amazon, but it didn’t take long for its other siblings to make the drop as well.

Once again, Amazon is making it more affordable to own a Verizon 4G LTE smartphone now that they’ve lowered the price of the LG Revolution and Samsung Droid Charge to the easy to swallow price of a penny for new customers. Naturally, you’ll be required to sign off on a 2-year contract with the purchase – still, we’re sure that won’t be a problem for you.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, upgrade customers will obviously need to pay more at $99.99 for the Revolution and $119.99 for the Droid Charge. Considering  that the two are still selling for $250 and $300 respectively through Big Red directly, we’re sure that people won’t have any issues with Amazon’s offering.

With the new pricing and all, it does beg the question when we’ll see the next-generation of 4G LTE smartphones for Verizon. Thankfully, the busy fall season leading up to the holidays will no doubt produce some intriguing offerings.

Not good, Both phones are 1280x720 (720p HD). I recommend a new phone with 1080p

There is not a single phone out right now with an HD screen, let alone 720p or 1080p. The Nexus Prime will have a 720p HD screen. Coming out in a couple months.

We have Gingerbread running flawlessly on our Charges over at XDA. If you don't mind rooting and flashing I recommend you head over there. Here's a link:
