Amazon’s Fire Phone takes a drastic price cut down to 99 cents on-contract

FirePhone-navigation

We knew Amazon’s Fire Phone was struggling to pick up traction, but the latest move by Amazon and AT&T might be indicating that the Fire Phone was DOA. After about a month on the market, Amazon has cut the price of the Fire Phone from $199 on contract down to just 99 cents on contract. At least the Facebook First took some incremental steps down to the nearly-free option instead of plunging so quickly. For those of you interested in the off-contract pricing, the Fire Phone has also seen a steep decline to $449.

Those prices reflect the 32 GB version, but the 64 GB has also seen a price drop. On-contract will run $99, while off-contract you can opt to pay $549. If Amazon is struggling to sell any of these phones, though, I doubt the 64 GB versions have gotten any interest at all. However, you do still get the full free year of Amazon Prime with this deal, so there’s still some value in the purchase.

    This is still a really bad deal. You are giving up so much functionality with this. Google play is completely missing. You are still paying FULL PRICE for this, with your two year contract! But you are not even getting half of what Android can do!

      That’s because Amazon runs a forked version of Android. With root there’s always a way around it

        You will void your warrantee

          Warranties make no true difference when there is always a way to unroot

          Ah the warranty runs out after a year anyways. Plus you can always unroot
