Some Verizon Android Phones Cheaper Than Free From Amazon

In a move that starts to show the unique ways Amazon has to promote its Appstore, the online retailer will begin giving $25 in Appstore credit free to those who buy a Verizon Android device via Amazon Wireless.

With last year’s models like the Droid X and Droid Incredible priced at one cent (with contract), this sets up buyers to get a new handset for less than free. And it gives users who might not otherwise do so a good reason to give the Appstore a try.

No word yet whether Amazon will run similar promotions for other carriers’ devices.

Whether or not Amazon ultimately releases an Android-powered tablet, the fact that it is now in the game of selling both Android hardware and software means that it’s uniquely able to offer promotions like this. Would $25 to spend in the Appstore encourage you to buy your next device from Amazon, or to try out their Appstore if you haven’t yet? Let us know in the comments.

    This is a strong selling point for people reluctant to jump into the smart phone market. Hopefully they will be able to offer a user experience that warrants picking up year old phones for free.
