Amazon Offering The T-Mobile Vibrant For A Penny

Wow, those of you who picked up the Vibrant yesterday for $99 are probably kicking yourselves. Amazon is now offering it for a thousandth of that — a single penny. That’s one fifth of a nickel. It’s a strange world where a flagship phone is being given away free with a contract. I mean, we all know the “total cost of ownership” is way more than a penny, but hey, given the choice between paying $200, $100, or 1¢ up front, I’m going to go with the 1¢.

I had a few issues with the phone (its cousins, anyway), but marketing gimmicks aside, it gets an easy recommendation at this price.
