Black Friday 2011: AT&T selling phones for a penny

Getting into the Black Friday spirit, AT&T has announced some of its deals for the weekend after Thanksgiving, including a lineup of popular smartphones for ... a penny.

AT&T isn’t saying much about its offers for Black Friday itself, only that touchscreen devices, including tablets, will start a “unbelievably low prices.”

But those looking to get a Windows 7 phone can grab them on Saturday, Nov. 26, for one cent. On what has been called Cyber Monday, the company will also be offering the Motorola Atrix, Samsung Infuse, BlackBerry 9810, HTC Inspire and LG Thrill for a penny.

The phones, of course, require a two-year contract commitment with a voice plan and a minimum data plan of $15 a month.

AT&T is also offering its deal-obsessed customers e-mail and text alerts about their Thanksgiving holiday sales.
