T-Mobile breaks $100 off-contract mark with Concord

T-Mobile’s reputation as one of the most affordable carriers in the nation is being reinforced today with the arrival of the T-Mobile Concord, a rebranded ZTE device that goes for under $100 off-contract.

The T-Mobile Concord may not be the best spec’d device on the market, but that’s not its claim to fame. Coming in at a meager $99.99 (with a qualifying Monthly4G plan at Target), or $99.98 (with a Walmart Family Mobile no annual contract plan), the Concord is a 3.5-inch 3G device with a 2-megapixel camera and Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

I know it’s probably hard for the enthusiasts in the crowd to get excited over a device like the Concord, but for a first-time smartphone buyer (or someone who just wants access to apps like Facebook, Google Maps and Gmail), you can’t beat a perfectly capable device for under $100 with no annual commitments. I think it might be time for a couple people I know to ditch the flip phone and move up in the world.
