Launch: Bezos Gone Wild! Amazon Selling Every Non-iPhone Smartphone for One Penny

http://www.launch.is/blog/bezos-gone...rtphone-f.html

Smartphones on sale for $0.01 include the Motorola Droid Razr, which Verizon sells for $299 with a two-year contract, the Samsung Galaxy S II, Epic 4G Touch, which Spring sells for $199 with a two-year contract, and the BlackBerry Torch 4G, which AT&T sells for $99 with a two-year contract.

Amazon seems to be going directly after Apple to try to sell more smartphones this holiday season by offering them at unbeatable prices. Bezos had a similar strategy with the Kindle Fire, which sells for $199 -- compared to $499 for the iPad 2 -- and analysts expect will hit 5M in sales in Q4.
Every phone, except the iPhone, for a penny.
