[New App] Motorola Alert Lets Your Friends And Loved Ones Track You Down In An Emergency [Update: Compatibility To Expand Soon]

Update: according to this post by Punit Soni, the app is indeed exclusive to the Moto E for the time being. Other Motorola phones (Moto G, Moto X, and the Droids) will get access to Alert at some point.

My grandmother is 76 years old, and I've finally convinced her that taking her ancient RAZR V3 cell phone on the tractor when she mows the pasture is a good idea. Not because she actually uses it, but because the thought of her having to walk across 80 acres of snake-infested coastal when something goes wrong is a sobering one. Motorola knows the practical use of a cell phone in an emergency, and is augmenting it with a new app.

[Deal Alert] Samsung Galaxy Note II (T-Mobile) Goes Live At Wirefly.com For $279.99 On Contract

Samsung's latest flagship – the Galaxy Note II – which we've so far only seen on video and in international markets, is finally (officially) headed to States-side carriers, with AT&T beginning pre-orders and Sprint and T-Mobile officially launching the device today.

In addition to official carrier launches (and the opening of pre-orders), though, Wirefly.com has opened up orders for the Galaxy Note II's T-Mobile variant, listing the flagship phablet at $279.99 for new or upgrading contracts. This beats T-Mobile's $369.99 price by a weighty $90.00, and it's worth noting that Wirefly is throwing in free shipping.

[Deal Alert] Amazon Offering SanDisk Class 4 32GB MicroSD Card For Just $22.89 (That's About $68 Off)

Have you ever wished that you could cram just a few more movies, songs, or other files onto your device? Well, now is your chance – Amazon is currently offering SanDisk's Class 4 32GB microSD card for just $22.89, a ~$68 drop from its list price (and perhaps its cheapest price to date). This deal is even better than the one we saw on a comparable Transcend microSD card last month, especially when taking into account the considerable (and well-deserved clout) SanDisk's brand carries.

There's no question this is a fantastic deal on a class 4 microSD card of this capacity.

[Deal Alert] Transcend 32GB Class 4 MicroSD Card Just $23.99 At Amazon

A high capacity microSD card is a good upgrade for any power user, even if at first blush you don't think the space is required. From my own experience, I never thought I needed one for extra space - I always had plenty enough storage as it was, or so I thought. But then I tried rooting a tablet and realized I needed a microSD card to do so, so sure enough, I ordered one. And today, I have no regrets; I keep music on it for local playback (since music streaming can still be spotty at times) and a few movies and photos that can be swapped from device to device seamlessly.

[Deal Alert] enTourage Pocket eDGe Dualbook Android Tablet/e-Ink Reader $150 At Woot.com Today (May 4th, 2011)

The enTourage eDGe Dualbook is one of the more interesting devices released last year due to its 2 screens - a 7" touchscreen LCD and a 6" e-Ink. Similar to the Spring Design Alex eReader, the Dualbook lets you read ebooks on one screen while simultaneously Googling, browsing Wikipedia, checking email, and doing anything Android lets you do on the other screen. However, if you find yourself reading late at night, just throw the book over to the LCD screen, and suddenly you can read in the dark. Pretty cool, eh?

The tablet/eReader features a 1.2GHz Marvell ARMADA PXA168 CPU, 3GB internal memory, a microSD slot, Android 1.6 (although a 2.2 ROM is supposedly floating around), a 2MP front-facing camera, a speaker, a microphone, 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth.

[Deal Alert] ASUS Eee Pad Transformer $40 Off From Target, But With A Catch - It's Backordered

The Transformer is already a pretty great deal in the world of Android tablets - you get the same 10.1" screen and dual core processor as its competitors, for the low price of just $399.99. But if that price point isn't enough to get you to rush out and buy one, or you'd like some extra cash for that keyboard dock, you're in luck - you can get it from Target for a cool $40 off by using the code TCA27BAR at checkout.

The only problem is, the tablet isn't exactly available - it's still on backorder, so Target warns that it will begin shipping "in 2 to 4 weeks." Of course, shipping will set you back another $7.95, and you'll still be paying taxes, so chances are you either won't be saving too much off the original $400 price, or you'll be paying more, whereas with Amazon you could forego both those additional costs.
