T-Mobile Concord is the carrier's cheapest prepaid smartphone, priced at $99
Buying a new smartphone for under $100 is easy, as long as you are willing to sign a 2-year contract. But what if you aren't much into long-term commitment? That is when things get a bit more complicated, yet T-Mobile introduced an offering that might just do the trick.

The nation's fourth largest carrier unveiled the T-Mobile Concord – an entry-level Android smartphone that can be yours for a very reasonable $99. It is being offered with a variety of service plans that do not require a 2-year pact, such as the T-Mobile Monthly4G, which offers unlimited nationwide minutes, texts, and data, or the Walmart Family Mobile, which is also powered by T-Mobile's cellular network. 

As you might expect, the T-Mobile Concord is pretty modest in terms of specs. Manufactured by ZTE, the smartphone packs a 3.5-inch capacitive screen with HVGA resolution (320x480). The processor inside it is the Broadcom BCM21553 and runs at 832MHz. There is a 2MP fixed-focus camera on its back, and the 512MB of on-board storage can be expanded with the use of a microSD card. Android 2.3 Gingerbrad comes pre-installed. The unit itself is 12.8 millimeters thick and weighs 100 grams.

In case you are interested, the T-Mobile Concord can be currently purchased at Walmart with a Family Mobile plan. Alternatively, you can wait until August 26 when T-Mobile will start offering the smartphone with a qualifying Monthly4G plan.
