Given that Amazon’s newly announced Fire Phone is largely one gigantic portal for Amazon to sell things (there’s a dedicated hardware button just for recognizing products!), some folks were betting on the device itself being free — or at least really, really cheap.
Alas, no such luck. Based on product pages that have just gone up on AT&T, it looks like the Fire will sell for roughly the same price you’d expect any other phone to go for on a two-year contract. Meanwhile, product pages that have just gone up on Amazon’s own site detail the off-contract prices.
As rumored, AT&T is getting this phone as a carrier exclusive.
The breakdown, so far:
- $199 for the 32GB model on a 2-year contract, $649 without contract
- $299 for the 64GB model on a 2-year contract, $749 without contract
These prices may change as the announcement rolls on (Amazon still hasn’t officially confirmed the prices), but for now they’re looking accurate.
Update: Amazon has now confirmed the above prices.
