The regular price is $449.99. This sale is so good the Fire Phone is now the number one best seller in the unlocked phones area of Amazon. We think this is the best deal since the HP TouchPad Fire sale, which we called the ImortaPad.
On reviewer who reviewed the Fire Phone deals wrote, "You will not find a smart phone anywhere in the world with these specs at this price," which is true because you also get a year of Amazon Prime with free content and two-day shipping.

The Fire Phone is assembled by the same company that makes iPhones Foxconn. $199.99 is a great deal because iHS estimates that the BOM, Bill of Materials for the Fire Phone is $201.00 and a manufacturing of cost of $4.00 with a total cost to make $205.00. Amazon is selling the phone for less than it costs to make and include free Amazon music/video content and two-day shipping for a year!
Amazon had a lot of these phones on hand noted analysts, therefore although it may ship within 1 to 3 weeks, even if you get it after Christmas, you'll have a premium smartphone and a whole of lot of content to watch on it.
The only caveat with the Fire Phone is that Google apps such as Google Drive do not work with it.
