Windows Phone Black Friday deals: All smartphones free on contract

Just a quick reminder for all my US readers who are celebrating Thanksgiving this week; Amazon is selling all smartphones (besides the iPhone) for only One penny on contract on AT&T, Verizon and Sprint.

Hit the banner above or below to grab the Titan, Samsung Focus S or Focus Flash.

Samsung has yet to announce the European variant of the Focus S which is surely going to be a bestseller thanks to it’s 4.3″ Super AMOLED Plus screen.
