If you're in the market for a new Android tablet right now, there's a good chance that either the Nexus 9 or SHIELD Tablet is the front runner in the race for your dollars. While the N9 is a decent tablet (depending on who you ask, anyway), it's hard for any tablet to best NVIDIA's first large-screen offering - in this writer's humble opinion, it is the best Android tablet money can buy right now.
And if your money is the one buying it, you'll be happy to know that, should you choose to get it from Amazon, you'll get a $30 Amazon gift card alongside your purchase. Read More
There's nothing worse than listening to a great song on those crumby earbuds that came with your phone. You've bought a phone with a gorgeous high-res display so you could see flawless video and graphics, why wouldn't you have an audio experience to match? Amazon Deals is offering a great opportunity to pick up a pair of Audio-Technica Professional Studio Monitor Headphones at significantly discounted prices. You've got a choice of 3 different models: ATH-M30x, ATH-M40x, and ATH-M50x.
Audio-Technica's headphones have been praised for both incredible sound quality and comfort level. Read More
Amazon gives out a free app or game everyday, but sometimes it likes to go all out with enticing people towards its Google-free marketplace. Today the retailer is offering dozens of paid apps for free.
Amazon says the content here adds up to $140. The priciest inclusions are OfficeSuite Professional and a $30 English dictionary. Gamers may want to check out 80 Days, Back to Bed, Monsters Ate My Condo, Ski Safari: Adventure Time, and Sorcery! 2. The ad-free version of Trivia Crack also makes an appearance.
There are more than twice as many apps as games in this deal, so odds are pretty decent that you may come across something useful. Read More
Sling TV launched recently with an interesting proposition. Pay $20 per month and get a handful of TV channels streaming to all your devices without a regular cable subscription. To sweeten the deal, Sling is teaming up with Amazon to offer a discount on FireTV devices, which can be used to watch Sling TV.
This deal isn't for everyone, but if it is for you, it's a really good one. The device in question is a carrier locked AT&T LG G3 in either of its color schemes and 32 GB of storage. No matter how you choose to buy it - without a contract, on-contract, or via the Next program - you'll get a $100 Amazon gift card after your purchase.
What's the catch? Well, there aren't too many, beyond the fact you basically need to use AT&T. If that's what you were looking for in the first place, you've found yourself a great deal. 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.
If battery life is the most important factor of a new phone purchase, there's probably no better bang for the buck than the BLU Studio Energy 2, even at its normal price. Cameron gave it a decent recommendation in his hands-on post a couple of months ago. Shoppers who are in the market for a mid-range phone that lasts more or less forever can pick it up from Amazon with a significant discount. The phone's price dropped by $50, bringing the total down to an impressive $129.99. Read More
Update: Google says that the Nexus Player is also available from TigerDirect. The official Nexus Twitter account also mentions Wal-Mart and Fry's Electronics, though it isn't available from their online sites, so it may only be on sale in brick-and-mortar stores. Staples' online store is also mentioned, but as of noon Monday, the Nexus Player isn't listed. Amazon now has an official listing from Asus available at the standard $99 price with free Prime shipping.
Google's first retail Android TV device, the Nexus Player, hasn't been met with the same kind of demand as last year's new Nexus phone or tablet, or even its little brother the Chromecast. Read More
Those of you with an Amazon Prime account also have a stockpile of music open to you through the company's half-a-year-old streaming service, and with version 4.3 of the Android app, the retailer is making those tracks easier to access.
Instead of browsing through the company's virtual store shelves and adding albums to your library as though you were buying them, you can just browse through a separate Prime Music section. When you click on a song there, it simply starts playing. No fuss. But if you do want to add an artist's work to your personal library, the option is still there. Amazon says it has improved the search experience too, with queries yielding more thorough results. Read More
Amazon's foray into the world of digital wallets started in July of last year. The company released the Amazon Wallet app on the Play Store and its own Appstore. If you go looking for it today, you'll come up empty handed. Amazon has pulled the apps and ended support for Amazon Wallet.
