Amazon Cuts Phone Price to 99 Cents


amazon-phoneWhile exact sales figures for the new Amazon Fire smartphone haven’t been released, the numbers can’t have been good. Amazon announced on Monday it was cutting the price to 99 cents from $200 just over two months after releasing it. The deal will still require a two-year contract with AT&T, but comes with a year free of Prime, which costs $99.
