ALL Verizon phones are just a penny through this weekend at Amazon

Did you avoid springing on a $79 HTC Rhyme? Still haven't picked up that $50 Thunderbolt? Well good things come to those who wait, my friend, and today everyone can take their karmic patience all the way to the bank. Amazon Wireless is hosting a huge Penny Pincher sale, and every single Verizon Android device is included. They're all just one single, solitary penny until 12:00 AM Pacific Time on Monday night/Tuesday morning. Naturally all these deals come saddled with a new two year Verizon contract - you've got to pay the piper. And while plenty of top-tier phones are included, Verizon's myriad tablet offerings aren't. If you're determined to ruin a good deal with poor choices, you could also pick up a "featurephone" like the Samsung Gusto, or choose from a solid half-dozen BlackBerry phones - watch out for those service outages. The only thing you won't find on the list is any iPhones. Sorry, Apple fans, you know they keep a tight leash on retailers. Highlights on the superphone side of things include the Motorola DROID BIONIC, the HTC Thunderbolt and the Samsung DROID Charge. If you don't live in a 4G LTE coverage area, you might want to check out the DROID 3, DROID X2, Sony XPERIA Play or LG Revolution. Looking for something a little smaller? Try the DROID PRO, the HTC Rhyme or the Pantech Breakout. The choice is yours, but don't spend too much time making it; with these prices Amazon's stock may not hold out until the Monday night deadline. [via SlashGear]
