You can now get HP's super tiny Veer for a penny on Amazon

By dropping the price of the Veer to $.01, Amazon is either aiming to clear out its inventory or make HP's latest phone a runaway hit.

Reception to the Veer, HP's latest (and certainly smallest) smartphone, has so far been fairly subdued. But Amazon is looking to change that in the most effective way possible: By making the phone sinfully cheap.

Following its previous price cut of the (on contract) white Veer to a penny, Amazon is similarly slashing the price of the black version of the phone.

And the cuts are (sort of) paying off: The black Veer is currently 34th on Amazon's list of bestselling smartphones with service plans, directly trailing Kyocera's dual-screened Echo.

Amazon's deal is only slightly less compelling than the one offered by Best Buy, which supplies the white version of Veer for free with two-year AT&T contract. Not crazy about the AT&T part? Join the club.
