Back in early-to-mid December, Fuhu announced a pair of new tablets: the nabi Jr. for small children, and the nabi XD for tweens. While release details were scant for the nabi Jr., the XD was penciled in for a mid-January release date. That time frame has come and gone, but it looks like both device are now available through BestBuy.com, though it's possibly the company pulled the trigger a little bit early since there's been nary a word from Fuhu since the initial announcement.
Yesterday, Verizon welcomed the bright pink Motorola DROID RAZR M into the fold just in time for V-Day. Sure, it's essentially the same device as the existing RAZR M, but c'mon – it's pink! That's a pretty niche color, so I'm sure there are lots of Android fangirls out there who just can't wait to get their hands on this little guy. And now, they can do just that for free at Best Buy Mobile – a $50 savings over Verizon's in-store price.
Are you just getting home from work and looking to unwind with some tunes? Maybe you want to rock out to the music on your phone – oh, but that crappy little speaker just won't cut it. The Monster ClarityHD, however, can pump out much more sound, and it's on sale from Best Buy. Yes, you might actually have a reason to buy something from Best Buy.
The Monster ClarityHD connects wirelessly to most Bluetooth 2.0 compatible devices.
If the rather binary choices of blue and white for the current model of the T-Mobile's variant of the Samsung Galaxy S III don't appeal, there's another option available. A Titanium Grey color has popped up on Best Buy's website, at the same subsidized price as the other T-Mobile models, currently $179.99 with a two-year contract and a whopping $700 outright. Just be aware that if you actually buy a T-Mobile Galaxy S III at any time in the next month, your future self may come back Biff Tannen-style and smack you for being so shortsighted.
As always, the closer we get to the holidays, the more deals we see. It's anything but uncommon to see one-day super deals pop up just before Christmas, and today Best Buy is offering the Sprint, AT&T, and Verizon variants of the 16GB Galaxy S III for just $50 and 32GB for $99 (Verizon only) with a two-year agreement. T-Mo customers are stuck paying a bit more, with the 16GB handset coming in at $80 and 32GB variant for $130.
We've heard quite a bit about the upcoming ZTE Flash on Sprint over the last couple of weeks, but Best Buy just spilled all the details of the upcoming mid-ranger. According to previous leaks - which have now been confirmed by Best Buy - the Flash has a 4.5-inch 1280x720 display, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, and Android 4.0. The handset's claim to fame, however, is its 12.6MP rear shooter - a first for a device in this class on Sprint.
Update: The promotional code has been taken down - probably because too many people tried to use it. Bummer.
Looking for a new phone that isn't a Nexus 4? Well, you may want to head over to Best Buy Mobile's eBay Store (ugh), because there's actually a pretty awesome promo code you can use to swing a great deal on an on-contract phone.
For any phone with a plan rate greater than $29.99, whether on a new account or as a contract renewal (upgrade), you can get 25% off the cost of the phone - just enter the promo code "EBSAVE25" at checkout.
If you've been on the fence about upgrading to the Galaxy S III from... whatever phone you're running these days, but were waiting for a better price, Best Buy's Deal of the Day could be the one for you. For today only, you can score the GSIII for a mere $99 with free shipping, a price that's good for both new contracts and upgrades. That's the best deal we've seen yet for the latter.
We actually first heard about the upcoming Spectrum 2 for Verizon back in late August, but we now have full details, along with a couple of images of the device, thanks to Best Buy. The Spectrum 2's page went live at BB just a little while ago, revealing basically everything we didn't already know about the device.
The rich, laminated oak on an antique writing desk. The captivating sheen on a mug of Bolivian coffee. The slight give as your hand caresses the supple exterior of an exquisitely-tanned saddle. If all these things put you in mind of a new smartphone, then you're a very strange person, and the prime consumer target for the latest flavor of Samsung's Galaxy S III. The "Amber Brown" version of the Galaxy S III is now available directly from Verizon, apparently ready to ship.
