Last month, we saw Motorola's Droid Razr Maxx HD offered up for $99.99 on Amazon for new accounts only. If you're already a Verizon subscriber who's looking to instead upgrade to the Maxx HD, you're in luck – it looks like Amazon has extended the offer to upgrade customers as well. For reference, Amazon's price puts the phone a full $200 below Verizon's own price.
Just in case you've forgotten, the Droid Razr Maxx HD packs a 4.7" 720x1280 display (that's 312ppi), 8MP camera, dual-core 1.5GHz processor, and 1GB RAM. Oh, and an ample 3300mAh battery. If that's not enough to sway you, keep in mind the Maxx HD recently saw its upgrade to Jelly Bean 4.1. Read More
Looking to switch up your carrier situation? Today might be a good time to look into doing just that, as Amazon Wireless has put the AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon versions of the Galaxy S III 16GB (any color) on sale for just $99 with a new 2-year agreement (upgrades are not eligible).
But seriously, don't buy the red one. Please.
You can see the eligible phones here (the 32GB models shown are not part of the deal, unfortunately). You'll notice T-Mobile's Galaxy S III isn't included, but that's probably because Amazon doesn't sell it in the first place. Here's a full list of eligible models:
All things considered, this really is a great deal on what is probably the best Android smartphone (at least for most people) currently available. Read More
Motorola Photon 4G, Sprint's latest dual-core Android phone and EVO 3D's only true rival, is only 10 days old, but it's not stopping Radioshack from folding its price sticker in half and throwing it on a sweet-sweet sale - $99.99.
The deal is available immediately at RadioshackWireless.com, though it's currently limited to new accounts, as it oftentimes happens (don't even look at it if you're upgrading). Throw in free FedEx shipping, and you've got yourself a pretty good price on Sprint's second best offering today, at least until the Galaxy S2, a.k.a. Epic Touch 4G, arrives later this fall.
Amazon Wireless and Wirefly both currently list the Photon 4G at $179.99. Read More
The Logitech Revue, originally highly overpriced at $299.99, was recently reported to be going down in price heavily to a sweet spot of $99.99 that it should have shipped with in the first place in my opinion.
As of today, the price drop is in effect, so you can order the Revue for $99.99 with free 2-day shipping directly from Logitech by following this link.
Update: It's now up for the same price on Amazon and at Best Buy.
On a separate note, I've heard some rumblings lately of rumors that the original Google TV hardware won't be getting the promised Android 3.1 (some of you pointed out 3.2, but the rep said specifically 3.1) update and want to take this chance to debunk it. Read More
How terribly boring were the last 2 months with regards to picking yourself up a new Android handset? We've seen hundreds of exciting announcements but practically no products to actually buy - end of December and January always seem to be those kinds of months. However, things are picking up, and one of the first new devices on the market fresh out of the oven is the HTC Inspire 4G for AT&T.
The device will cost you $99.99 + tax from AT&T, but on Amazon, where it just went live, it is available for $59.99 to new customers (including family plans) and $69.99 to those upgrading. Read More
Hot in the heels of the incredible $100 Amazon deal on Sprint's flagship EVO 4G, we found ourselves looking at the same price tag on an even more expensive and more recent 4G device - the Samsung Epic 4G. Retailing for $249.99 at Sprint, the best deal we've seen on an Epic so far was $200 at both Amazon and Wirefly.
What we're looking at today is a brand new Epic 4G for $99.99 on a new 2-year contract, with free 2-day shipping and no tax. Amazon is also temporarily waiving the $36 activation fee until the end of today. Read More
HTC EVO 4G, our favorite 4.3 incher from Sprint, has revolutionized the mobile industry back in June. However, due to high demand and low stock, it was extremely hard to get at first, and when it did show up in stock, we were still looking at a $199 price tag. Sure, a $10 or $20 discount popped up here and there but no significant deals ever surfaced. Until now.
Amazon.com is offering a brand new EVO 4G for $99.99 to new customers signing up for a 2-year contract. The offer comes with free 2-day shipping, free activation (until Oct 18th), and no tax. Read More
The sad part about being a mobile customer, at least in the US, is that you almost never get the same perks when upgrading your phone with your current carrier, compared to switching to a new one. For example, if you're an existing T-Mobile customer, you will need to shell out $200 if you upgrade with T-Mobile, Amazon, or even Wirefly.
Thankfully, we were just tipped off about a deal in Costco that offers the G2 for $99.99 to both new and existing customers renewing their contracts as well as those adding a new line. There is only one difference - existing customers pay $149.99 and send in a $50 mail-in rebate instead of getting the $99.99 price right off the bat. Read More
Wirefly, notorious for launching the best mobile deals on the web, did not disappoint us today, which, if you remember, is the official T-Mobile G2 launch date.
While the competition sells the G2 at $199.99 and even $149.99, Wirefly's $99.99 deal for new accounts completely knocks it out of the park.
Add free shipping and the absence of tax, and you get some serious savings left in your pocket. So serious that this deal is now our Deal of the Week (see the top of the sidebar).
Existing T-Mobile customers - your deal isn't as sweet but still better than T-Mobile's own - $199.99 with no tax added on. Read More
Looks like both Wirefly and Amazon Wireless are up to their old, price-slashing tricks again. This time their sights rested on the brand new Samsung Fascinate for Verizon Wireless.
The new $99.99 deal, offered by both sites, is a 50% discount off carrier subsidized price of $199.99.
While the BOGO (buy-one-get-one-free) deal offered by Verizon itself technically averages out to about the same price, if you just need 1 Fascinate, Amazon Wireless or Wirefly are the way to go. With no gimmicks, mail in rebates, or TAXES (that's right, neither of the two charge you tax), you can get the Fascinate for about half the green you would part with at a Verizon store. Read More
