Remember that time that the Amazon Fire phone cost $199 with a two-year contract? Well now you can get it for the same price without any kind of commitment.
The Amazon Fire phone is now available for $199 unlocked and without a contract. The GSM device plays nicely with AT&T, T-Mobile, MetroPCS, Simple Mobile and more, and each unit comes with a full year of Amazon Prime, which normally costs $99 on its own. The Fire phone launched in late July for $199 with a two-year contract or $649 without.
Since it comes with Amazon’s heavily-skinned version of Android and without any kind of Google apps support, the Fire phone isn’t going to appeal to folks that like their Android to be untouched. At $199 unlocked and with a full year of Prime, though, the device becomes pretty interesting, if anything just as a curiosity or backup phone.
What do you think of the Amazon Fire phone’s $199 no-contract price? Are you going to pick one up?
