Amazon wages all-out war on Apple with penny smartphones

Amazon Penny Phones

The Kindle Fire was just the start of Jeff Bezos’ and Amazon’s “Holiday Gadget War 2011” against Apple (and everyone else). From now until next Monday, Amazon is selling all non-iPhones for a penny with a 2-year contract.

The phones on the list aren’t old models, either. Included are the new Motorola DROID RAZR, Samsung Galaxy S II, LG Revolution 4G, and HTC ThunderBolt 4G. Many of the phones on the list retail for over $600 and are sold by carriers and retailers for over $200 with 2-year contracts.

With the $199 Kindle Fire already expecting to break 5 million units sold in Q4, Amazon is clearly trying to own the holidays on every front possible.
