While the LG Lucid may have hit Verizon stores with an incredibly low price-to-hardware ratio, the good folks over at AmazonWireless took that to a whole new level: free. Okay, well, one cent (close enough). Normally, we tell users to avoid budget devices like the plague, but the Lucid is the exception to the rule. Why? Because while its price (or lack thereof in this case) may be budget, its hardware is anything but:

  • 4-inch IPS display with Gorilla Glass
  • 1.2GHz dual-core processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB built-in storage, microSD card slot
  • 5MP rear shooter, VGA front facing camera
  • Android 2.3 (will get Ice Cream Sandwich)

See? Not too bad for a free device. Normally, a deal like this is only available to users signing a new contract - not re-signing and existing one (in that case, the users is usually stuck paying nearly the same as if they walked into a store to buy the device). Not this time, though. Amazon knocked the price all the way down for exisiting VZWers, too.

So, there you go. As long as you can sign a contract, you can get this little guy for a penny. Hit the link below to buy.

    While I am definitely not a fan of LG's interface, this is a superb option for someone's first smartphone. The only downside is that it is a fingerprint magnet but most people would have a case on it anyway, and who knows how long it will take LG to release ICS for it, but at least it has been confirmed.
