Do you love good deals? Because we love good deals. Not only that, but we love to share the good deals we find. With that, here are a pair of goodies that we stumbled across just a little while ago.

Asus Transformer TF101

2012-04-05 13h36_59

If you really want an Android tablet, but don't want to kill your wallet, then picking up a refurbished model is a great way to save some coin. I know a lot of users have "refurb-phobia," but that's generally pretty unjustified; refurbs are usually just as good as brand-new gear, but sold at a fraction of the price. And if you do get a lemon, there's always a warranty provided.

So, why all the talk of refurb'd gear? Because you can grab a refurbished ASUS Transformer TF101 (not Prime) from eBay Daily Deals for $250. Compared to full-blown retail, that's a pretty massive savings. Need a reminder of how the TF101 is spec'd? No problem:

  • 10.1-inch 1280x800 IPS display
  • 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16GB storage
  • Android 4.0

There - if you want Ice Cream Sandwich on-the-cheap, then grab this tablet.

Unlocked GSM Samsung Galaxy Nexus

2012-04-05 13h45_02

Okay, so maybe you're not in the market for a new tablet. But if you've been looking for a good deal on an unlocked GSM Galaxy Nexus, then here's one for $430 - that's $30 cheaper than we've ever seen it before. Unlike the TF101, this one isn't a refurb model, it's just a damn good deal on a brand new piece of kit.

Even though we've already shared the Nexus' specs once today, we'll go ahead and share them again right here:

  • 4.65-inch 1280x720 Super AMOLED display
  • 1.2GHz dual-core TI processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16GB built-in storage
  • 5MP rear shooter, 1.3MP front-facing camera
  • Stock Android 4.0.x

Ready to buy? Great, here it is.

    I want to let my fellow Android fans know that Japan is currently flooded with low price brand new Galaxy Nexus in Japanese auction sites. If you can find someone to import it for you, an average cost will be around $300 to $350 (that included all the fees, delivery, etc.) but the phone will be locked to NTT Docomo (a Japanese carrier), and you need to know how to unlock it.

    If you are curious to know why the GNex is so cheap in Japan, that's because the phone's sales was so poor there NTT Docomo dropped the price so low that people are buying them in contract, then sell them out to make a profit (even after they pay for the terminiation fee.)

    Hurry up, though. Last time I heard, people in HK are lining up to import them and the prices are going up.
