Android phones for less than $100 don't have to be more than two years old, and as fast as technology is moving today, you can get some decent tech for much less than $100. Pantech, a company new to the U.S. is selling a brand new device for $100 with a two year contract from Verizon. It's got a four inch screen, a five megapixel camera and runs Android 2.3 right out of the box.
For the best deal, check out AT&T's Samsung Captivate. With a new two year contract, you can grab one for a penny (online offer only)! This may be a limited time offer, but it's such a good deal. It runs on an older version of Android (2.2 Froyo) but it's got a four inch screen and comes with Swype for faster texting and typing.
Sprint's HTC Evo Design 4G can also be had for $100 on contract after a $50 mail-in rebate. It comes with a four inch qHD touchscreen, Android 2.3 and 1.2GHz processor. This is a good option because Sprint allows unlimited data on their network. If that sounds good then check out the Nexus S 4G, also from Sprint. This was Google's second phone and it's over a year old now, so it costs $100 on contract with the $50 mail in rebate. It even comes with Android 2.3 and a four inch Super AMOLED display. If T-Mobile is your flavor, there is the HTC MyTouch 4G, free with a new two year contract. It runs Android 2.2 also, but has a 3.8-inch screen and four gigabytes of on board storage expandable to 32GB with an SD card (eight gigabyte card included).
So there is some decent tech out there if you are on a budget or if you are looking for some stocking stuffers for the holiday season. Tell us in the comments if you've gotten a good deal on an under $100 Android phone recently.
