Still waiting to buy the Fire Phone? Amazon lowered its price (again)


The Fire Phone has gone from an overpriced bombshell to a moderately priced off-contract choice during its thirteen months on the market.

The price of the Fire Phone with a two-year contract was $199 and the off-contract price stood tall at $649. Those two prices are typically reserved for high-end devices. The Fire Phone, of course, is not “high-end.” So Amazon was left with no choice but to lower the Fire Phone’s off-contract price multiple times. Until today, the price of the Fire Phone was $159.
