It seems like everyone is throwing free cloud storage at you to push phones, including Amazon. The retailer is offering 50GB of Amazon Cloud Drive space for one year if you buy select carrier-branded phones. In this case "select" seems to mean a whole bunch of phones – over 100 by the looks of it.
All you have to do is pick up a phone included in the promotion, which Amazon has helpfully created a special portal for. Read More
Many useful products have gone on sale this past weekend, including tablets, phones, chargers, batteries, earbuds, speakers, and more or less anything you could possibly want to pair with a mobile handset. But we've had enough of useful - now it's time for cool.

With all the deals flying around lately, we know many of you have recently wrapped your fingers around a brand spanking new phone or tablet. Now comes the time to fill it with content. Just because the device likely came with Play Books pre-installed, that doesn't mean it's your only option for skimming through books. Amazon's massive collection of ebooks are only a click away, and now the company has announced its second annual 12 Days of Deals promotion. Read More
Google and Motorola don't seem particularly interested in MicroSD cards these days, but most of the other manufacturers have at least some phones and tablets that still offer expandable storage. If you'd like to pick up a capacious card for your Android device (or anything else), Amazon is offering SanDisk models at a significant discount. This isn't a Gold Box deal, but it is Cyber Monday, so the prices may be good for today only. Read More
Thanksgiving may be behind us, but the holidays aren't over yet. Christmas is fast approaching, and that means many people will be stuck traveling on long, cross-country flights to visit extended family members and wrestling with them over precious power outlets upon arrival. If you want to keep your favorite Android device running regardless of the circumstances, Amazon has an affordable deal that might just pique your interest. You can currently pick up the RAVPower 14,000mAh external battery pack, which has multiple USB ports for charging two devices at once, for just $34.50. Read More
In case you haven't had the time to dig through our massive Black Friday weekend sales post, take note of the sales going on at Amazon right now. If you're in the market for a new phone, you can save some real cash up-front.
The Chromecast is already a pretty fantastic deal at $35, but less is always more when it comes to price. Both Best Buy and Amazon are offering the streaming dongle for $29.99. You still get the $6 credit for Google Play movie rentals from either retailer, so you won't be wanting for something to watch when you plug it in.
Google has been pushing the Chromecast hard as of late, adding a special section for Chromecast to the on-device Google Play Store to highlight the apps that can take advantage of it. Read More
There are many times when it's just nice to have a portable backup battery around. For fifty bucks, you can typically snag a pack with a capacity anywhere between 10,000mAh to 15,000mAh, enough to recharge a modern high-end smartphone four or five times. Yet if EC Technology's new external battery pack available on Amazon is genuine, it offers a whopping 22,400mAh of power. That much juice could recharge a phone up to ten times, all for the same $49.99. Read More
If you've been hankering for a Samsung Galaxy Note 3, the high price for Verizon's contract phone may be off-putting. Wirefly is offering the Verizon Note 3 for $199.99 with a new contract, but Amazon has one-upped them - they've got the same phone-contract combo for just $169.99. The price for both is $249.99 ($50 off Verizon's price) for returning customers.
You could take the view that Wirefly has a better deal here, at least if you're willing to wait. Read More
As a tech addict who lives in a remote area, Amazon Prime is a godsend for me: getting stuff delivered to my door quickly when it would otherwise necessitate a three hour round trip is well worth the nominal fee. Amazon hopes you'll agree, and to that end they've now included the ability to sign up for an Amazon Prime free trial right in the official Amazon app.
If you qualify for Prime (and just about everybody does), you can sign up for a 30-day trial within the app itself. Read More
