The crazy retail deals are still going strong today here in the U.S. During my daily check of Amazon for the MP3 special of the day, I noticed the e-tailer is offering any AT&T phone for a penny today. There’s also no activation fee, which saves $36 — personally, I think the fee should go away from the entire industry, but that’s another matter. As expected, you’ll need a new two-year service account for the deal, which expires at the end of the day. That means existing AT&T customers have to pass, because upgrades aren’t eligible.

A quick scan shows 61 eligible handsets and while some are basic phones, there’s a few relatively recent mobiles in the list, like the BlackBerry Bold 9700, Garmin’s nüvifone G60, the HTC Tilt 2 and HTC PURE. To sweeten the deal, Amazon is also including free two-day shipping. And before you ask: nope, no iPhones for a penny. ;)

  1. Not a bad deal for anyone that wants to give AT&T a try… Kevin do I see a BlackBerry in your future. :)

    1. Nice try. ;) I’m still waiting to see if we have a new Android 2.0 device running on a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor by January or February. Or if a bunch of the apps I need appear on my Palm Pre by then, I’ll stick with that. :)

  2. So it’s not really “All AT&T phones,” is it?

    1. It’s all AT&T phones that Amazon offers, near as I can tell.

  3. Why not a 9700 Kevin? I’d appreciate your thoughts on the Pre vs. BB.
