[Deal Alert] eBay Has A Galaxy S7 Edge Duos (Dual SIM) For $670 - $130 Off Retail

The Galaxy S7 Edge is the current highlight of Samsung's smartphone lineup... and boy, don't they know it. The 32GB version of the phone goes for approximately $800 unlocked in the US, well above the non-Edge version of the S7 and considerably more expensive than more budget-minded flagships like the Nexus 6P or the Moto X. But that doesn't mean you're out of luck when it comes to deal hunting. Right now an eBay vendor is offering the international, unlocked, dual-SIM version of the S7 Edge for just $669.99 . Silver, gold, and black models are available.

CyanogenMod 13 Nightly Builds Now Available For The OnePlus X

Relatively low prices and a wide-open attitude towards user customization make OnePlus phones popular with the ROM crowd. They're getting a big boon today, as official CyanogenMod support comes to the smaller, cheaper OnePlus X. The X is equipped with the custom Oxygen OS, but for those who prefer the community-built ROM, CM13 is now available in nightly build flavor. The first release is up on CyanogenMod's download page right now.

Philips Launches SpeechAir, A New Android-Powered Digital Voice Recorder

Like most journalists, I own a voice recorder for recording interviews. Mine is pretty basic. I think it cost me around $30 on Amazon. But for the most part, I've been satisfied with it. I've never felt the need to upgrade to something a bit more powerful. But this new Android-powered voice recorder from Philips is making me question that.

[Deal Alert] Pebble Time Round Gets A Nice Discount To $144 ($56 Off) On Amazon

Pebble's unique smartwatch platform still has a few advantages over Android Wear and the like, particularly in battery life. And the latest version, the Pebble Time Round, is worth considering for anyone who was a fan of the original Pebble. It's considerably better-looking than the square Pebble Time (relatively large bezels notwithstanding), and the color screen and three-button interface are preserved. Today several of the Pebble Time models with leather straps have a generous discount over on Amazon.

Prospective buyers can pick up the black case + black strap model (20mm), black with red strap (20mm), or steel with tan strap (14mm) for $143.99, a $56 discount off of the retail price.

[Update: $5 Now] Deal Alert - Three Dollars Will Buy You A Rather Nice Looking Aluminum Tablet/Phone Stand At Amazon - Check It Out

The great thing about tablet holders is that they hold tablets. There is a tablet holder that you can buy for only three bucks on Amazon right now with coupon code 6GZKNB8B. It normally costs eight dollars, and three is less than eight, so that makes it a rather good price.

The stand is made of solid aluminum, which means it would have been worth a small fortune 200 years ago. Now it's $3. Poor aluminum, what a drag, it used to be right up there with gold in terms of value, now they make tablet stands out of it.

Android N Dev Preview 2 Merges Downloads And Files, Lets You Install APKs From The File Explorer But Causes Various Other Issues

I'll be honest here. We don't know what's exactly happening with the Android N Dev Preview 2's Downloads and Files situation. There are lots of nitty gritty changes happening and we obviously can't tell if these are forgotten missteps in this release or if this is the way things will be from now on. I've been going back and forth between each screenshot of Android N Dev Preview 1 and its equivalent on Dev Preview 2 trying to understand the rationale behind some of these changes, but I haven't made sense of it all.

Here is what we know though and I guarantee that it's confusing, so I'll try to make it as clear as possible and hope you can follow along.

Google & Microsoft Mutually Agree To Stop Tattling On Each Other To Regulators

Google and Microsoft, while not outright enemies, have been engaged in a number of public slap-fights over the years. After all: they're competitors, and Google competes with Microsoft in three areas where the company's fortunes have sharply declined (smartphones, the browser wars) or never really got off the ground to begin with (search).

Microsoft has even been engaged in lawsuits against Android and, under threat of legal action, extracted (and may continue to extract) royalties from companies that make Android devices. Microsoft also helped lead the charge in what was likely the impetus that eventually caused the European Commission to file antitrust charges against Google last week.
