Happy 11/11/11 boys and girls! Verizon is preparing to open the release their latest 4G smartphone into the world promptly at 11:11 this morning, but those of you whose wallets ache when they see that $299 price tag may want to check out Amazon Wireless’s launch day deal.
Running with Verizon’s all-11s schtick, Amazon has the Droid RAZR for $111.11 with a two-year contract for today only.
Hefty discount, no? Well, there always seems to be a catch when a deal this good appears, and Amazon is happy to oblige. Only brand new Verizon customers will be able to take advantage of that promo pricing, though existing customers looking to upgrade still get a teensy $50 discount. There’s also quite a wait involved — the RAZR is already backordered, so placing a new order now means it won’t mean ship for another 8 or 9 days.
We felt that the Droid RAZR was a bit of a mixed bag, but such a steep discount makes it all the more palatable. Here’s a quick spec refresher for those of you teetering on the fence: the LTE device sports a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, a 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED display, a rather nice 8-megapixel camera, and squeezes it all into a 7.1mm thick body. Still can’t decide? Read our full review, and make it quick: who knows how much higher Amazon’s backorder window will creep.
Amazon’s $111.11 Droid RAZR Deal Makes My Wallet Happy
If you’re a non-Verizon customer who’s been considering hopping on the big red network, now is most definitely the time. A deal at Amazon could score you a $300 phone for just a penny. In fact, Amazon Wireless is selling all its Verizon devices (which unfortunately excludes the new iPhone 4S) for just a penny if you’re a new customer signing a contract. That also includes free 2-day shipping.
The deal doesn’t extend to tablets, but there’s still a good 30 phones to choose from, ranging from the super powerful $300 Droid Bionic to a variety of feature phones. The beastlier of the phones include the HTC Droid Incredible 2, the HTC ThunderBolt, the Samsung Droid Charge, and the Motorola Droid 3. If the Penny-Pincher Sale sounds like the deal for you, head on over to Amazon Wireless and start shopping. The sale is only running through October 17.
