We recently told you that Verizon dropped their price of the Lumia 928 from $99 on contract to just $49—a very competitive price (especially when compared to the $99 BlackBerry Z10, which itself was reduced from $199).
But for those of you still on the fence, you may want to check out Amazon.com, as they have the Lumia 928 for $0.99 on a 2-year contract (Individual or Family) or for $499 without a contract. Since the phone has an unlocked GSM slot for Verizon’s LTE network, you can even use this on other carriers, were you to buy it out right (though you’d be missing some bands on some networks).
Overall not a bad deal for a surprisingly neat little phone. No word on sales stats for this device and whether Verizon (and Nokia) are having any luck selling it to the public with their aggressive advertising.
Speaking of, we’ll have the winner announced sometime tomorrow for our Lumia 928 contest! We didn’t forget but we did have //Build/ keep us busy all week.
