AT&T Windows Phone 7 devices on sale yet again, $50 on contract

AT&T has kicked off another limited time offer that has cut prices for a few of the smartphones that the carrier currently sells. Most notably, two Windows Phone 7 devices that AT&T carries have seen their price dramatically cut, all the way down to $50.

Keep in mind that both the Samsung Focus and the LG Quantum, the two Windows Phone 7 devices in question, pack some high-end hardware even for this day and age. Yet they’ve seen their prices slashed yet again – this is not the first time this has happened. In fact, it’s hard to find a period of more than a couple of weeks or so when at least one WP7 phone wasn’t on sale, either from AT&T direct, or at third-party retailers. And they’ve even been offered for free at times. This may indicate that sales of WP7 handsets aren’t the best.

Anyway, to get either device for $50 you will have to sign that traditional two-year contract of course. Other smartphones have been discounted as well. The BlackBerry Curve 3G is down to $30, the BlackBerry Torch is $50, and the Samsung Captivate (AT&T’s Galaxy S) is $100.

Since there’s absolutely no telling when this offer will end, if you’d like to get any of the aforementioned smartphones for these prices, you’d better act fast and head to the nearest AT&T store and order one. Alternatively, you can of course do the same thing online.

    Other mobile devices that are currently in the discount bin are iPad version 1, and Samsung’s original Galaxy from last year. These are all old models, priced to clear, to make way for new models.

    The difference with Windows Phone 7 is that it is getting discounted soon after being released. It shows that something is going wrong with that platform. Microsoft also heavily discounted its Kin phones, shortly before the platform was cancelled.

    Given that logic, the HTC Tilt 2 running Windows Mobile 6.5 on AT&T and currently priced at $199, must be selling very well.
