Typically, when we think about gadgets like this designed for children, Leapfrog comes to mind. Then there are the junk devices that use two-year old tech marketed as "for kids." The Nabi 2 shatters that mold, however, by using the quad-core Tegra 3 processor to power the device. That, combined with an array of fantastic and educational software, puts this tiny powerhouse in a league of its own. Best of all: it does all that for only $199. Read More
Running a little short on storage space with all those apps and music tracks on your phone? Today might be a good time to rectify that problem, as you can pick up a SanDisk 64GB microSDXC card up from Best Buy for $49.99. Compared to Amazon's price of $74, that saves you around 30%.

Five major U.S. carriers announced yesterday that they would be carrying the Galaxy S III: Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and U.S. Cellular. While pre-orders are already happening for some, Best Buy decided to get in on the action as well: it's now taking pre-orders for the the Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint variants of the device.

Historically, Best Buy hasn't been the most, shall we say, reliable company when it comes to... well, anything. The most recent display of typographical error on Best Buy's part comes from the pre-order page for the upcoming HTC EVO LTE. Looks like Best Buy thinks it's the phone of the year - it has the off-contract price listed as $100k. Ha!
While the $100k price tag may indeed be a humorous error, there is a silver lining: if you actually pre-order the phone from BB, you get a $50 gift card upon activation. Read More
We've long suspected that the Spring Galaxy Nexus will be finally crawling out of the labs and into our hands on April 22nd, with today's Sprint planogram note BGR got ahold of confirming it. To make the case even stronger, we'll throw in a tip from one of our sources at Best Buy who sent us these internal images.
While neither picture explicitly names the devices, they should indeed be the Galaxy Nexus and the LG Viper 4G, the latter of which is officially coming out on the same date as well. Read More
Last week, we got word from a Best Buy tipster that ICS updates would be rolling out to the Droid RAZR/MAXX on April 4th and the HTC Rezound on April 6th. If you've checked the calendar lately, then you're probably aware that today is April 5th - one day later than ICS was supposed to hit the RAZR Twins. Still, that OTA is nowhere in sight (soak test details for the RAZRs did surface yesterday, but it wasn't ICS). Read More
Looks like Motorola cancelled the soak test due to "deployment issues." Word has it that the update could still happen sometime next week.
DROID RAZR and RAZR MAXX users excited for an Ice Cream Sandwich update by last week's Best Buy screenshot should brace themselves for some bad news – it looks like the aforementioned devices won't be getting Ice Cream Sandwich just yet after all.
According to a letter being sent out to members of Motorola's Feedback Network, the soak test slated to begin tomorrow simply brings an update to build number 6.12.181 with various enhancement and bug fixes. Read More
Many AT&T customers have been chomping at the bit waiting for any word on when the upcoming HTC One X could hit the scene, and thanks to Best Buy, we may finally have an idea as to when that may be.
The Double B has been taking pre-orders for the One X for a few weeks now, but even then, didn't tell customers when they could expect their glorious new handset to arrive. Read More

The final release date for the worst Android device launch in Verizon's history since the Thunderbolt and the Bionic is still unclear, but some Best Buy locations apparently didn't get the memo and started selling the Galaxy Nexus ahead of schedule. Some of those who were lucky enough to grab this holiday season's hottest LTE-enabled Ice Cream Sandwich gadget decided to let the photos do the talking, as folks tend to get pretty edgy when it comes to Galaxy Nexus news.
