Have you been pondering the idea of switching to AT&T lately but you haven’t been able to find the motivation needed to actually take the plunge? Well say hello to your push. Today, for one day only, Amazon.com is offering every single AT&T handset outside of the iPhone for 1¢ — that’s right, 1¢. Whatever it is your little heart desires — be it the BlackBerry Bold or Curve 8900, the Samsung Impression or Eternity, the LG Xenon or Neon, or anything else — is available for a single penny today. The pricing applies to new customers and requires a new 2-year contract of course, but come on… A penny. Amazon is also offering to waive your activation fee (normally $36) as well as provide free 2-day shipping. Any takers?

More in store for AT&T: LG HQ and Opera TV

More in store for AT&T: LG HQ and Opera TV

As this never ending gobstopper of a slide deck continues to maintain its flavor and AT&T execs surely continue to steam from the ears, we’re seeing quite the range in AT&T’s upcoming lineup. Suffice it to say, there really is something for everyone. Just about every space on the spectrum is covered and perhaps no two handsets illustrate this more than these two from LG. The HQ, or Herald, is a pretty basic 20-key messaging phone with Windows Mobile 6.1, tri-band UMTS, a 2 megapixel camera, microSDHC support and a 320 x 240 display. The “Opera TV” on the other hand — despite its ridiculous codename — is a high end MediaFLO-enabled touchscreen handset with LG’s S-Class UI, dual-band UMTS, 7.2Mbps HSDPA, a 5 megapixel camera and a 3-inch WVGA display that supports 16 million colors. Both handsets are supposedly due out this Summer. Hit the jump for a slide on each phone.

LG Vu coming to AT&T in new wine color

LG Vu coming to AT&T in new wine color

The LG Vu isn’t exactly the the newest kid on the block but there’s no question this sexy touchscreen handset from LG is a great value – if you can find it. Many have noticed the earlier Vu model (915) has been hard to come by lately and some early speculation pointed to a discontinuation. That’s only half true of course, as AT&T is getting ready to fill store shelves once again with the newer version (920) complete with MediaFLO and a host of bug fixes. In fact, some stores started getting them in a few months ago. As part of the ongoing refresh, AT&T will also be getting the handset in a new wine color which is definitely unique and looks to be just subtle enough for a guy to pull off. For those who haven’t been able to check it out in person, MediaFLO on the LG Vu is spectacular – the nice big touchscreen makes for an ideal mobile TV experience. The new color should be hitting stores very soon and we don’t expect the pricing to change from just north of $100, as it stands now.

Thanks, Omie!
