If you're looking to pick up a new phone from Amazon Wireless, an interesting deal just popped up: activate mobile hotspot during your purchase, get a $100 Amazon Gift card. Doesn't matter if you're a new customer or you've been with your carrier for 10 years and are getting an upgrade -- this deal applies to everyone; any hotspot-ready phone, any carrier.
Alternatively, If you're not eligible for upgrade or don't want to get a new phone just yet, you can get a similar deal on standalone hotspots. If you pick up a mobile hotspot device instead of a new phone, you can still score a $50 Amazon gift card.
The Droid RAZR, despite not being officially released until 11/11/11 at 11:11 am EST, has already been given an insane price cut by Amazon Wireless, available for preorder tonight and sale tomorrow at just $111.11, a discount of more than $180.00 if you sign up for a new two-year agreement. If you want to upgrade your current device, the RAZR is available for $199.99$249.99 $229.99 (the price went up after this post was published and keeps changing by the minute), which is still a great deal.
Wondering why this deal is so awesome? Take a look at some of the RAZR’s impressive specs:
4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED display
1.2GHz dual-core processor
8MP rear shooter, front facing camera
16GB built-in storage, 16GB microSD card
7.1mm thin, 127 grams
Made with Kevlar fiber
Motorola Splash Guard
If you’ve been waiting for the RAZR’s official release but like to shop around, Amazon Wireless’ offering is a perfect opportunity to get a deep discount on the latest member of the Droid family.
So, you want to jump over to Sprint, but don't need the fastest device on the planet? Both Amazon Wireless and Wirefly have a good deal going on the just released EVO Design 4G by HTC: $50. Update:It's still $50 at Wirefly, but Amazon Wireless just dropped the price to $30. Of course, this requires a new two-year contract, so all current Sprintsters will be stuck paying $80, which still saves about $20 over the in-store price.
4-inch qHD display
1.2GHz single-core Snapdragon processor
5MP rear shooter with HD video capture (720p), 1.3MP front cam
Remember Amazon Wireless' Freedom to Choose video contest? Yeah, the one with $15k in prizes for making a simple video telling why AW is awesome. Artem and I helped judge the contest alongside folks from Android & Me and Phonedog -- all the videos have been weighed and measured, and the winning clips have now been chosen.
There were two different categories: Judges and Voting. Here are the winning videos for each category:
The HTC Rhyme, a stylish phone geared toward HTC's female demographic, has only been on the market for a short time, but it's already getting some pretty hot discounts thanks to Amazon Wireless.
Amazon Wireless is offering the HTC Rhyme for a paltry $79.99 on a new two-year activation, or $99.99 for those opting to upgrade from their current device.
The Rhyme is a sleek phone, and comes with a handful of nice accessories including a charging dock, tangle-free headphones, and a charm call indicator that can stylishly hang from your purse and glow to alert you of incoming calls. For those who may have forgotten, here are some of the Rhyme's specs:
Android 2.3 Gingerbread
5MP rear shooter capable of 720p video capture
8GB microSD card included
Wi-Fi hotspot capability
If you've been waiting for a good deal on this feminine slice of Android goodness, head on over to Amazon Wireless and grab the Rhyme at a substantial discount.
Amazon has reduced the price of the Motorola DROID BIONC for new Verizon subscribers to just $150 - and you'll get a free $50 Amazon Gift Card to boot, which would probably wisely be spent on a spare battery and charger.
Verizon's first dual-core phone to feature LTE and a qHD display (with somewhat yucky PenTile subpixel rendering), the BIONIC is definitely Verizon's current powerhouse handset.
For current Verizon customers, the price remains unchanged: $250 with a renewal of your 2-year agreement. You can check out our review of the DROID BIONIC (which I think is a pretty good phone) here.
Yesterday we highlighted a deal with VZW's first LTE phone, the HTC ThunderBolt. If the TBolt isn't your cup of tea, then Amazon Wireless has come through with yet another amazing deal on an LTE phone: the Samsung Droid Charge.
The Charge is still the only Droid branded phone infused with 4G LTE, and now you can get it for basically nothing when you sign up for new service with Big Red.
4.3-inch Super AMOLED display
1GHz Hummingbird processor
8MP rear shooter, 1.3MP front
2GB built-in storage
So, if this is the Droid you've been looking for (is that phrase played out yet?) then hit the link below to head over to Amazon Wireless and take advantage of this deal!
If you've been considering making the jump to Verizon's ultra-fast 4G LTE network, then I can think of no better time to make that commitment than now, as you can score the HTC ThunderBolt for one cent from Amazon Wireless. Like always, signing up with Big Red for two years is a requisite to get that price, but it still saves you $250 over the retail front.
The EVO 3D is easily one of the hottest phones on Sprint right now, and with good reason. It's fast, functional, fluid, and brings a lot of incredible features to the table, like 3D and Sense 3.0. If you've been waiting for a good deal to come along before dumping your current carrier and switching to The Now Network, now is the time, as Amazon Wireless is letting this 3D shooter go for $99 with a new two-year agreement. The deal is not as sweet for current Sprintsters, though, as the price is nearly doubled for a contract renewal ($180), which will still save you a bit of change versus the retail front.
