Weekend Deal Alert: Grab a Windows Phone 7 Device (and Many Other Mobile Phones) for a Penny


Microsoft was undoubtedly hoping for better launch numbers for its Windows Phone 7 platform, but perhaps this will help. From now until Monday, November 15th, Amazon is selling all AT&T phones for a shiny copper Lincoln, or even a dull Lincoln so long as it's worth 1 cent. And yes, this weekend deal includes the new Windows Phone 7 devices.

Naturally you're going to need to commit to a two-year service contract, and in exchange you can snag an HTC Surround or LG Quantum Windows Phone 7 device for a penny. In other words, they're essentially free. The caveat? Other than the service agreement, these have to be accompanied with a new line of service.

As of this writing, the LG Quantum is backordered (expected to ship in 1-2 weeks), though the HTC Surround is in-stock. Not a bad deal provided either of these phones floats your boat and you're willing to stick it out with AT&T. To read our take on the Windows Phone 7 platform, see here .

Upon further digging, we found several devices across all major carriers listed for a penny, so if AT&T and/or Windows Phone 7 don't excite you, you may still find a phone/carrier that does. If you pounce on any of these, be to sure to hit the jump and brag about it!
