AT&T Veer appears on Amazon, asking $49.99 on contract, $349.99 off

If you’re the type that likes to get a deal on things, generally Amazon is a good place to start looking. And it seems out favorite book-seller-turned-everything-seller has a deal in place on the AT&T HP Veer 4G as well: $49.99 with a new contract, or $349.99 without a contract. For those keeping track, the two-year contract price is $50 less than what AT&T is asking, and the off-contract price is a whopping $100 less.

Granted, that contract price is $49.99 higher than the free they’re asking for at Best Buy, but Amazon’s the only outlet with that crazy-cheap off-contract pricing. We’ve received several reports that Best Buy doesn’t yet have the Veer in stock, with reports of having to wait until the 22nd for the tiny phone, and it seems that Amazon is joining them in the ranks of waiting: they’re quoting a 8-9 shipping time.

We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the pricing brouhaha from last night: Amazon mistakenly listed the Veer as available contract-free for $49.99. They quickly realized their error, cancelled all of the rushed orders from rabid webOS fanboys, and issued apologetic $10 Amazon gift certificates. All’s well that ends well, we just hope the Veer's successful enough that it’s a while before we see it at that price again (unlike it’s Pixi predecessor).
