[Deal Alert] Amazon Drops Verizon's Droid DNA To A Penny For New Contracts And Upgrades

If Verizon's HTC One kind-of announcement just didn't do it for you because you can't stay away from the red-and-black-themed Droid line, Amazon has HTC's next best offering on the table for a solitary penny. Of course we're talking about the Droid DNA, the undeniable king of Big Red's Droid lineup for the time being.

Despite the fact that the DNA was released back in November of last year, its spec sheet is still a fairly impressive one:

  • 5-inch Super LCD3 at 1920x1080 (440 PPI)
  • Quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16GB built-in storage
  • 8MP rear shooter, 2.1MP front camera
  • 2020mAh battery
  • Android 4.1.1 with Sense 4+

Sure, it doesn't have BOOMSOUND, Zoes, Ultrapixels, or other buzzwords – but c'mon, it's got its own now-famous red eye and a DROID logo, and it's only a penny.

[Weekend Poll] What's Your Preferred Tablet Display Size?

We're going to keep this weekend's poll simple: how big do you think your tablet should be? We've asked this question before, but that was quite a while ago. I'm curious to see if the dimensional preferences of the average AP reader have changed since, and what influence devices like the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 have had on people who are in the market for a tablet.

The choices this time will be a bit different, as sub-7" tablets really never panned out in a big way, and we've got a few popular sizes out there now.
