Days ahead of the usual "Black Friday" silliness, online giant Amazon.com is offering a slew of smart phones for one penny. According to the company, the deal runs from midnight PDT November 21, 2011, through 11:59 p.m. PDT November 28, 2011, while supplies last, including phones for the Verizon, Sprint, and AT&T wireless networks, and requires a new line of service. And, if you buy an eligible hotspot-ready smartphone and activate the hotspot feature, you'll get a $100 Amazon.com Gift Card as well.

Scanning through the selection, I see a mix of previous- and current-gen Windows Phones, including the HTC Trophy (Verizon Wireless), LG Quantum (AT&T), Samsung Focus (AT&T), HTC HD7S (AT&T), Samsung Focus S 4G (AT&T), Samsung Focus Flash 4G (AT&T), and HTC Arrive (Sprint). There are also several Blackberry handsets and about a million Android phones, if I'm counting correctly.

If you're an AT&T customer, you may also want to wait for Friday (which is the aforementioned Black Friday), as AT&T is having a one penny sale that day as well. I've been told that the HTC Titan will be available that day as well, though I'll believe that when I see it.
