Amazon finally slashes Fire Phone price to $199 without a contract

amazon_fire_phone_199_no_contract

The Fire Phone has been on the market for just over four months and commercial (or even critical) reception has been lackluster. Arguably the biggest issue with the handset is its price. Amazon is solving that issue now by lowering the price to $199. The list price prior to the discount is $449; however, the off-contract price of the Fire Phone actually started at $649. So now the Fire Phone has an off-contract price comparable to on-contract counterparts.

Will the price change affect the Fire Phone’s performance? We doubt it. Let us know in the comments if you intend of giving this handset a look for yourself or anyone else this holiday season.

You can snag a Galaxy S 5 for just a dollar, or an LG G3 or HTC One M8 for a penny. Some of the deals vary depending on carrier and whether or not you’re going for a new account or upgrade, but the deals are worth looking through if you’re in the market.

Amazon_Fire_TV_9988

New reports indicate Amazon is preparing to rollout an ad-supported video streaming service next year that is different from the Prime Video service included with their Prime membership offering. The new service will supposedly be aimed more at competing with Hulu and Netflix in that it will be based on a monthly subscription fee for access. Analysts think Amazon will undercut the monthly prices offered by other services through the use of ads. Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter thinks this would make the new Amazon offering a “Netflix killer.”

For many of its services, Amazon keeps support limited to in-house devices. The upcoming Echo digital assistant and Fire TV Stick, though, have dedicated apps available in the Play Store.

The app used as a remote for Echo does everything a user can do with his or her voice. After all, Echo is a digital assistant controlled by voice commands. The Echo app shows everything that the hardware would respond with by voice. It will display weather information, music playback, and lists. Support for the Echo app is limited to just a handful of recent flagship devices.
