Amazon Drops The Fire Phone Price Again: $179 Unlocked, Still Including A Year Of Prime ($100 Value)

If you're a patient deal hunter and you wait long enough, Amazon might just end up paying you to take the Fire Phone off its hands. If not, the price is pretty good at the moment: $179 for the unlocked 32GB model, without a contract to be seen. That's $10 down from where it was just a little more than a month ago, $270 off the original price, and a pretty awesome deal for a phone with a 4.7-inch 720p screen, a Snapdragon 800 processor, and 2GB of RAM...

[Deal Alert] Amazon Drops The Fire Phone Down To $189 For The Unlocked 32GB Model, Including A Year Of Prime

Amazon's interesting, unconventional, and unique self-branded phone has flopped hard. You know what that means, HP TouchPad and HTC First owners: rock-bottom prices. Amazon has discounted the unlocked 32GB model all the way down to $189, making it worthy of consideration for would-be buyers of the Moto G and similar mid-range devices. And that's before a year's worth of Amazon Prime ($100 value) for free, so you'll have plenty of movies, music, and cheap shipping to complement your new phone.

Amazon Really Wants To Get Rid Of The Rest Of These Fire Phones, Puts Them Back On $200 Sale With One Year Of Prime

Let's be honest here - Amazon's Fire Phone was a complete flop. It makes a lot less sense than something like the Fire Tablets, which are at least somewhat useful outside of just being a front for Amazon's store (which is precisely what Fire Phone is). But the hardware is solid, and it's not a bad phone -- especially when you can get it for $199 off-contract and unlocked. Throw in a year of Amazon Prime, and you've basically got a really decent handset for a Benjamin.

[Deal Alert] Amazon Fire Phone 32GB On Sale Today For $189 Off Contract

The Amazon Fire Phone was never a bad phone per se, it just didn't come to market at the right price. At $199.99 with a two-year contract, the handset came in as an upstart thinking it had what it took to compete with the heavy hitters. Today, it's available at the more humbling price of $189 total.

That's not a bad deal at all for an unlocked GSM device with a 4.7-inch display, 2.2GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and a 13MP camera, especially when you consider the lack of a contract.

Amazon Pushes A Big Update To The Fire Phone, But You Probably Still Won't Buy One

Amazon is continuing to fiddle with the Fire Phone's software even after it became apparent that the device isn't selling terribly well. An OTA is going out right now to the AT&T and GSM unlocked devices with a ton of improvements to the camera, battery life, lock screen, and more.

[Fire Sale] Amazon Admits Defeat, Now Offering Unlocked 32GB Fire Phone For $199 With No Contract

Amazon was forced to concede that its much-anticipated Fire Phone was not a big seller when AT&T dropped the price mere weeks after it was released. When the retailer's quarterly results were announced, we learned the scale of the screw up. Now Amazon is washing its hands of the whole mess. It's unloading unsold 32GB Fire Phones unlocked for $199 off-contract. The off-contract price at launch was $650 and AT&T charged $199 with a 2-year agreement.

Amazon Plays Catch-Up, Adds A Private Mode To The Kindle Fire's Silk Browser

Until now, Amazon's Kindle and Fire devices have lacked one important feature that sets them far behind their Android counterparts: porn. Wait, that's not true, there's tons of porn on Amazon, you can hardly look on the bookstore without seeing self-published Harlequin-style short stories. But if you want to browse a bunch of sites on the less savory side of the Internet on your Kindle Fire without leaving a trail, you're out of luck.

Amazon Releases Two New 'Games' With Dynamic Perspective Support On The Fire Phone

The Fire Phone is reportedly selling very poorly, but surely this will get things back on track. Amazon has released two new games (sort of) that include support for Dynamic Perspective on the Fire Phone. They're both free... if only you had a Fire Phone.

[Ouch] Fire Phone Drops From $199 To $0.99 On-Contract From AT&T, But At Least You Can Buy It In Europe Later This Month

The Fire Phone is a tough sell when there are so many great Android devices available with Google services, and it looks like AT&T agrees. After just a few months of (reportedly) poor sales, the Fire Phone has dropped to just $0.99 with a new 2-year contract. I'm seeing shades of the HTC First here.
