[Deal Alert] Amazon Gold Box Offers Great Discounts On SanDisk MicroSD Cards, Including The Massive 200GB Card For $150

MicroSD cards are about to make a big impact on Android, so now's a good time to stock up on some high-capacity storage. How fortunate, then, that Amazon's Gold Box daily deal portal is once again selling them on the cheap. The brand of choice today is SanDisk, and Amazon isn't holding back: top-of-the-line cards are available at huge discounts, from 32GB all the way up to the new 200GB option. Toss that sucker into your phone and you'll have more flash storage than some of the old hard drive-based MP3 players from the 2000s.

For my money, the 128GB card is the best bang for the buck.

[Deal Alert] Amazon Chopped Another $150 Off The Nexus 6: 32GB Is Now $350, 64GB Is Now $400

Deal hunters, get an early start on this one. Amazon's US store has slashed the unlocked Nexus 6 price by another $150 (in addition to the $150 price cut a few months ago). That means a full $300 off of both models: the standard 32GB version is now $349.99, and the 64GB version is $399.99. This is a fantastic deal on an unlocked phone, and one that still keeps up with most of the 2015 flagships. Get your order in quickly, because at this price stock is going to disappear very soon.

Remember, the US version of the Nexus 6 works with all four major carriers (including Sprint and Verizon), most GSM MVNO carriers, and Google's own Fi.

Amazon Has The Moto X Pure Edition Up For Pre-Order If You Don't Want To Customize It

Customers Who Pre-Ordered A Huawei Watch Are Seeing Their Updated Delivery Dates Pushed Back To Mid-September

A lot of people are excited about the Huawei Watch (which we've taken to calling the Huawatch around the Android Police virtual office). This is probably because it's the most watch-like Android Wear device that's been shown so far, and has a round screen that's actually round. All the way around. 360 degrees of roundness, you might say. Would-be purchasers have been waiting to buy one since the watch was announced way back in March, and the first pre-orders went live on Amazon earlier this week.

Unfortunately, those pre-orders were quickly dismissed by Huawei itself - the company said that it had nothing to announce, implying that the listings on Amazon (which quickly disappeared) and the September 2nd launch date weren't actually approved by the manufacturer.

Amazon Gives Details On How Amazon Underground Works For Developers Who Want To Make Money While Not Charging Users For In-App Purchases

When Amazon announced Amazon Underground, a new app marketplace where many freemium games are made "actually free," everything seemed pretty great. You can make in-app purchases on apps downloaded from Underground without actually spending money, which is my favorite way to buy things. Of course, if you spend much time thinking about how this must work behind the scenes, it's tough to see how this will be a winner.

Amazon has been kind enough to share the nitty gritty details. Here's the short version:

  1. Developers agree to waive the fees for in-app purchases
