For those of you frugal readers who missed T-Mobile's 24-hour $99 Samsung Vibrant sale, Amazon is looking to one-up them with a sale of its own, offering the very phone for a mere $0.01 listed price, no shenanigans.

Amazon and Amazon Wireless are selling the Vibrant for one penny -- with a two-year contract, of course -- and with there being only a pennies difference between getting it for free or paying (a penny) for it, it's safe to say this is virtually free, if not quite a steal. The Vibrant (read our full review here) sports Android 2.1, a snappy 1 GHz Samsung Hummingbird processor, a beautiful 4-inch Super AMOLED  screen, 5-megapixel camera, 16GB internal storage and plenty of other perks that over qualify this phone to be, "the best penny you ever spent." (Thanks to all of you who sent this in!)
