The stores are about to be packed, and those flash online sales are not much better. Apps sales, on the other hand, are not limited in quantity. There's always enough to go around. But the longer you wait, the less time you can spend playing games—get going. We'll keep loading this post up with deals as we come across them.

Initial reactions to the Nexus 9 have been less than stellar, to say the least. In David Ruddock's review, one of many sour points for the hardware was the volume and power buttons:

...the volume rocker and power buttons on the Nexus 9, for example, are simply bad. They're squishy, have almost no travel, and provide very little feedback unless you know the exact angle to hit them at.

It looks like manufacturer HTC may be addressing at least some of the problems with the initial batch of tablets, its first since the HTC Jetstream way back in 2011.

The biggest problem people have had with the OnePlus One is the convoluted invite system, making it necessary to jump through multiple hoops for the privilege of giving a company money to buy its product. On this most sacred day of bargains and barbarism, OnePlus has elected to suspend the invite system and its only slightly better pre-order page. You can buy a 16GB or 64GB OnePlus One today, no waiting, no hunting for invites, no phone smashing or sexist pandering required.

Update: It looks like the Nexus 6 (which is actually in stock right now, at approximately 12:45 AM Pacific) and the Nexus 9 are also eligible for the $50 Play Store credit. Add the G Watch to your Play Store cart to see the $99 price.

Root Checker is a simple little tool that does what it says on the box: it checks whether your phone or tablet (or game console, or set-top-box, or e-reader, or robotic toaster) has root permissions. Those that use it probably only do so for a few seconds once or twice a month. That being the case, it's not a big deal if the app doesn't look good. But that doesn't mean that it can't, right?

Root Explorer is one of those apps that has been on each and every one of my Android devices for years, and part of the reason why is that developer Speed Software has kept it relevant with near-constant useful updates. The latest, version 3.3, takes advantage of the revised SD card management on Android 5.0. Those with Lollipop devices can once again write to an external SD card even without root.

Last Thanksgiving we at Android Police celebrated by showing you our hand turkeys, but this year we wanted to see yours. Really, you should be the stars of the show. After all, the only reason we get to keep doing this is that you guys seem to like reading our nonsense. So here are the best hand turkeys you sent.

The Nexus 9 is a good tablet, if you ask me. It's not as great as we were all hoping, but you don't have many options for 4:3 Android slates. The price isn't where it needs to be, though. Amazon has the device on sale today for $50 off all WiFi models, which I think should have been the regular price.

Google might hate microSD cards, but we know you—you like, nay, love microSD cards. Now is your chance to show your love with a financial gesture. Amazon has a number of Samsung SanDisk microSD cards for as much as 55% off.

Odds are pretty good that everyone in the US who really wants a Chromecast has been able to find one by now. But with a rock-bottom starting price and compatibility with a ton of third-party Android apps, not to mention the Chrome desktop browser and at least some iOS apps, it makes a great stocking stuffer for people who might not follow every facet of the technology world. If you agree, Amazon has a nice discount on Google's streaming stick at the moment.

If you're a developer who likes to tinker with Android apps and see what makes them tick, you've probably heard of Apktool. And if you've tried to do that with some of Google's recent apps, or any apps that have been updated with Lollipop support, you've probably discovered that the Java applet doesn't always work for them. Developer Connor Tumbleson just posted the third release candidate for Apktool, which should fix most of those problems.
