One of the best things about the upcoming Mango update for Windows Phone 7 is that Microsoft is making the update available to all current WP7 smartphones. Whether you jumped on WP7 at launch last year or if you’ve recently become a believer, every phone will be on the same playing field as far as the operating system goes. Now may be a good time to take the plunge into Microsoft’s mobile ecosystem because Amazon Wireless is practically giving the phones away.
There is a special promotion going on right now at Amazon Wireless for WP7 smartphones. Amazon is giving away a $25 Amazon gift card to anyone who purchases a WP7 smartphone by June 30. The codes will be made available via email within five days of buying a phone. Amazon Wireless has at least one WP7 smartphone for the four major U.S. carriers.
That’s not even the best news. Amazon Wireless is also selling some of the phones such as the Samsung Focus, HTC Arrive, HTC Surround and the LG Quantum for a penny. The most expensive phone is the HTC Trophy for $99.99. You’ll need to sign up for a new line of service to be guaranteed the full discount. There are a few phones that won’t give up the full discount with existing contract extensions. Still, these phones are dirt cheap for what they are.
