Update: It looks like we may have been swindled. Memorial Day has come, and we can’t seem to find the deals anywhere. We generally fact check each post to an excruciating degree — somehow, this one managed to slip through the cracks. Our apologies to anyone who was mislead.
Memorial Day isn’t usually a gift-giving holiday, but Amazon’s Memorial Day sale may put you in the mood to treat yourself. Almost 20 4G phones will be listed for free (with a contract, of course) on Amazon’s site on Monday, including some pretty top-of-the-line devices like the HTC Thunderbolt, Samsung Droid Charge, LG Revolution, and Google Nexus S 4G.
If you choose to forego the Android route, a new Windows phone will get you a $25 gift card from the web retail giant, while a game-centric Sony Ericsson Xperia Play purchase will get you $10 in Amazon Appstore credit. Amazon’s Appstore has had a tough go thus far, getting slammed with a suit by Apple over the similarity between their stores’ names. But the real struggle will be enticing customers to switch from the Android Market, which boasts 294,000 applications as of May.
