AT&T Samsung Focus Windows Phone 7 available from Amazon for only $49.99

The Samsung Focus is part of the first batch of Windows Phone 7 devices to hit AT&T (the United States’ “premier” WP7 carrier). It was launched on November 8, the day that WP7 has officially become available in the US.

This being a high-end device and all that, the price at which AT&T has been selling it is that which you expected – $199.99 with a new 2-year contract.

However, if you are after a Focus, Amazon now has a great deal for you. You’ll still need to sign a two-year agreement with AT&T, but the phone can be yours for only $49.99.

The Samsung Focus, as many other WP7 devices, has a 1 GHz processor, a 5 MP camera and a WVGA (800×480) capacitive touchscreen. And now it can be bought for just a quarter of its normal price.

Don’t believe me? Check out Samsung Focus on Amazon yourself.

    The question is, why is it being discounted so early after launch?

    Amazon wants to clear its stock of Windows Phone 7 handsets. Maybe it wants to clear them before everyone learns that Windows Phone 7 has flopped (which we are starting to realize).

    They are cheaper and discounted on Amazon, because the phones are sold on
    $50-$150 a month 2 year contract. Ever wondered how much Amazon gets for
    each phone sold with a contract? They pay affiliates $65 per each phone
    sold. They should be getting at least $150, more likely $300 and more a
    piece.

    ANd with every other blogger writing about this stuff, they can discount
    that retail operator price of $200 whatever they want, and still be in the
    black. And the better the phone sells, the faster they come up with
    discounts
