Amazon Selling Verizon Droid Models for a Penny


Amazon’s big smartphone deal this weekend focuses on the Droid series of devices. New customers with Verizon Wireless will be able to pick up any of the current Droid-labeled models on-contract for a mere penny.

Last weekend, Amazon was promoting AT&T phones for a penny, including the two remaining Windows Phone 7 handsets that hadn’t sold out yet. If Android is more your cup of tea, you now have the three latest Motorola Droid models and the HTC Incredible to choose from. The brand new Droid Pro is currently out-of-stock, but considering it lists for about $180 after rebates when bought from Verizon, waiting a few weeks to get the phone seems like a relatively small price to pay.

To sweeten the deal, Droids bought through the promotion receive a credit that brings the activation fee down to zero.

The big caveat here is that only new Verizon accounts qualify for the discounts. If you’re interested in upgrading an existing Verizon account, these aren’t the Droids you’re looking for. That doesn’t mean there aren’t still deals out there; the guys over at BGR managed to track down a few, with the best looking like Wirefly’s. The company has Droid Pros for $50 with no rebates to bother with – existing Verizon accounts welcome.

You have until Monday the 22nd to take advantage of the Droid-for-a-penny Amazon offer.
