Last week, I listed the EVO Shift 4G in my roundup of the best Android phones under $50, but that was when it was priced at $40 on AmazonWireless. Wirefly has now gone and beaten that price silly, offering the QWERTY-keyboard slider phone for the low, low price of "free" if you open a new Sprint account, or add a new line to your existing plan.
The EVO Shift 4G does have a tiny 3.6" display, but it's also packing a next-gen single core Snapdragon processor and a big 1530mAh battery - along with a fresh update to Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread. Read More
I'm not a big fan of the DROID Charge, but hey, to each his own. And apparently consumers haven't been such huge fans of the phone's notoriously high original MSRP ($300 on upgrade or new agreement), making it the most expensive subsidized Android phone to date.
Well, Wirefly has started playing hardball, and after having dropped the Charge down to $180 a month or so back, they've gone price-slashing yet again: you can now pick up the Samsung DROID Charge for $129.99 on a new Verizon account with a 2-year agreement, or when you add a line to your existing plan (sorry, it's still $200 if you want to upgrade).

A few days back, we listed Motorola's cutting-edge ATRIX 4G as one of the best five Android phones for budget-conscious consumers. At the time, it was just $30 at Amazon Wireless - a very good deal for a dual-core smartphone capable of turning into a laptop (though said laptop is expensive and somewhat limited in terms of functionality).
Today, Amazon Wireless has slashed the ATRIX's price further still: it's now just $0.01 on a new two-year contract. Read More
To welcome the arrival of T-Mobile's newest mid-range handsets, the Samsung Exhibit 4G and Gravity SMART, Wirefly is throwing a bone out there to all who are thinking of signing up with Team Magenta. If you walk into a T-Mo retail store looking to pick up either of these devices, then you'll be shelling out $80 for the Exhibit and $70 for the Gravity SMART (or $30 if you get the plain black one), but you can grab them from Wirefly for $50 and free, respectively.

If you picked up the recently released Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, then there's a good chance that you want some accessories to go along with it. Right now, if you use the coupon code GOOGLEIO2011 at Sammy's official online store, then you'll score a cool 30% off of all accessories. There is a catch, though - 60% of the currently released accessories are out of stock at the moment. However, if you're in the market to grab the stylus, vehicle charger, travel charger, or data cable - then you're in luck, as those are the only items currently in stock. Read More
If you've been thinking about jumping from your current carrier to Sprint, then you may want to take advantage of this deal: one of the most popular Android phones of all time, the HTC EVO 4G, is now free with a new two-year agreement from Wirefly and Amazon Wireless. This is by far the lowest price that we've ever seen the EVO go for, and even though it's over a year old, it still rivals many of the phones currently being released. Read More
We've all seen "roundup" lists of smartphones before: who's got the best display, who has the quickest processor, the newest OS revision, the biggest battery - but let's face facts: that kind of stuff is for nerds (like all of us here at AP - and most of our wonderful readers). So we're going to try out something new - call it a pilot episode, if you will.
When you're attempting to convince the less geeky folks you know that they should pick up an Android phone, it can be a tough sell. Read More
There's no denying that the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer is one of the best Android tablets on the market. The keyboard dock makes it a one of a kind, and its unusually low price tag gives it more bang-for-your-buck than the bulk of the competition. Today's Daily Deal on eBay is the 32GB version of the Transformer (normally $500) with some pretty sweet accessories. While this bundle doesn't include the keyboard dock, it does bring a $90 Klipsch stereo headset and an 8GB microSD card to the table. Read More
With the impending launch of the HTC EVO 3D, other Sprint phones in the same price point are starting to look a bit... lackluster. Fortunately, there are always killer deals out there for those looking to score a new phone without breaking the bank. This is exactly the case for the HTC EVO Shift 4G from Amazon Wireless - sign a new two-year agreement, get the phone for $40. This is a solid deal, especially when you consider that Sprint is willing to pay you if you switch before June 23rd. Read More
Today must be a good day for deals - first the Acer Iconia Tab A500 for $380, and now the Wirefly has the HTC EVO 3D for $150 with a two-year agreement. Considering that this device isn't slated to hit shelves for another two weeks, this is an excellent price (the lowest we've seen yet).
4.3 Inch qHD Super-LCD display
1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor
5MP rear shooter with 3D video and image capture
1.3MP front camera
4GB built-in storage
Android 2.3 with Sense 3.0
To add a bit more awesome to the deal, if you use Sprint's Buyback Program, there's a chance that you could get basically score this upgrade for free. Read More
