While the Dell Venue 8 is a tablet we considered quite solid (and now it even has Lollipop), there's no denying it was always really, really pricey. $450 isn't exactly the going rate for many Android tablets these days as the premium segment of the market never really materialized in a big way. To help ease the sticker shock of the unabashedly good-looking Venue 8, Amazon is chopping 20% off the top of that MSRP today in a Gold Box deal.
That means you can get the 32GB Venue 8 for just $359 (OK, $358.99, you got me), which is $10 less than the lowest price we've seen the 16GB version at. Read More
Do you need a microSD card for your phone or tablet? Amazon's got them. Today you can get SanDisk memory cards ranging from 32GB to 128GB. The small side starts at just $11. The maximum offering will cost you $60. Either way, you're looking at saving 35 - 40%.
The SanDisk Ultra cards offer read speeds of up to 48MB/s. The Extreme cards cost a little more, as they go up to 60MB/s. There are also a couple full size Extreme SD cards available on the off chance you have an Android device that accepts the format.
Most of the discounted flash drives won't do your phone any good, but there are a few OTG sticks on sale as well. Read More
Do you want a little extra storage for your MicroSD-equipped smartphone? Alternately, do you want a hell of a lot of extra storage? Then checking out Amazon's daily Gold Box deal this morning would be a good place to start. The retailer is offering massive discounts on Kingston-branded cards in 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB capacities. As usual with Gold Box, the discounts are valid for today only, and all come with free two-day shipping for Amazon Prime users.

32GB: $11.99 ($28 off)
64GB: $24.99 ($40 off)
128GB: $70.99 ($124 off)
All of them are certified for Class 10 speeds of 10MB per second, making them acceptable for photography both on your phone and in a standard camera via the included adaptor sleeves. Read More
Today's Amazon Gold Box daily deal is all about Lexar memory, and in not-so-modest sizes and speeds. Nope, these are not your bottom of the barrel memory cards and flash drives on offer. Those most relevant to your phone needs, the microSD cards, boast UHS-I/U3 speeds, meaning they meet the second-most rigorous speed specification in the industry. The deals are good too, matching the lowest price Amazon has ever offered for them.
You'll see 32, 64, and 128 gigabyte variants of the microSD and the larger two sizes for the SD card. The microSD cards are, as previously mentioned, rated for 95MB/s read speeds in accordance with the UHS-I specification. Read More
The state of MicroSD card support for Android is kind of odd right now. Long-time expandable storage champion Samsung has decided to forego it for the latest flagships, the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, while its competitors at HTC and LG are including MicroSD card slots in their high-end phones. If you're still in the market for a card, Amazon is selling them in 32GB and 64GB capacities at two speeds for a significant discount through the Gold Box daily deal portal.
If you just need a little bit of extra storage, the SanDisk Ultra 32GB card with speeds of up to 48MBps is going for $12.99, a modest discount of $4 (and still much lower than you're likely to find at most brick-and-mortar retailers). Read More
So, you've got a lot of stuff that doesn't fit on your phone? If you're lucky enough to have a microSD card slot, that's easy to fix. Amazon's Gold Box deal today features Sony flash storage, but not just microSD cards.
What's better than one deal? Several deals. If you approve, you should check out Amazon's Gold Box offers today for discounts on a plethora of Bluetooth speakers. You could save anywhere from $12 to $152 or more, depending on which speaker(s) you pick.
The biggest savings are on the TDK Life on Record TREK Max A34, a rugged, weatherproof speaker with an IP64 rating, additional Aux-In input, and a microphone (to serve as a speakerphone). It's discounted from $249.95 to $97.49. Another interesting option is the green Eton Rugged Rukus All-Terrain, which is also a rugged speaker with an IPX-4 rating, but has a solar panel on top that should keep the tunes playing indefinitely if you're out in the sun.

As today's Deal of the Day, Amazon is offering the 16GB version of last year's Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 for only $259. The 32GB model goes for a slightly more expensive $274, and the 64GB model comes in at $289.
With the first two models, we're talking about a savings of $140. The 64GB sees a discount of $160. Either way, this amounts to a pretty big chunk of change, and it just goes to show that it can pay to wait until hardware is no longer brand spanking new before making a purchase.
This is also the newest version of the tablet you can get that still has the Kindle branding in its name. Read More
There's a bitter divide in the world of Android hardware: those who love expandable storage and those who don't. (There are a few who are indifferent and level-headed, but they never seem to speak up in the comments section.) If you fall into the former category, head over to Amazon's Gold Box one-day deal page. They're selling Transcend brand MicroSD cards for dirt cheap.
You can pick up a 32GB MicroSD card for $13.99, more than $20 off of Amazon's regular price. The 64GB version, normally a full fifty bucks, is just $28.99 today. Both cards are rated Class 10 for speedy file transfers and photos, and come with free adapter sleeves for easy transfers to cameras or laptops. Read More
Amazon's Gold Box deals always tend to gravitate back to flash memory storage every few weeks. Today is another iteration with discounts on many Sony SD cards, USB drives, and more interestingly for mobile users, microSD cards and microUSB OTG flash drives.
If your phone has a microSD slot and you want to add extra storage for your media files, you may want to pick up the 64GB microSD Class 10 card for $33 instead of $115. The smaller variants are also discounted, with the 32GB going for $16 instead of $55, and the 16GB on sale from $29 to $9. Read More
