T-Mobile Breaks the $100 Barrier With No-Contract Android Phone From ZTE

The long-talked-about arrival of the $100 Android phone, without a contract or carrier subsidy, is now a reality.

T-Mobile on Thursday announced plans to start selling the T-Mobile Concord, a low-end Android device from China’s ZTE. The phone is basic for a smartphone, running the older Gingerbread flavor of Android and packing just a two-megapixel camera and a 3.5-inch screen.

Still, that’s certainly plenty of smartphone for some, and it breaks new ground when it comes to its starting price. It’s available now at Walmart, and starting on Aug. 26 at Target.
