What are you doing? Paying full price for apps and games? Why don't you just set your money on fire and call it a day? See, we've got some hot sales that will enable you to save some scratch and still get cool stuff on your Android device.
The latest Humble Bundle is in town, so you know what that means. It's time to open up your wallet just wide enough to pay however much you want for up to six great multi-platform games. The entire lot is available for Android, with two making their Android debut - Gemini Rue and AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! for the Awesome. Together these two games alone would cost you $9, and now they can both be yours for a mere fraction of the price.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 is a good tablet, as long as you can live with its less-than-exciting build quality. Samsung plastics are a touchy subject, but some of us would like for a device this large and expensive to feel, well, premium. Yet if you want a tablet that comes with a stylus and is crammed with features, here's a deal from eBay that cuts the 32GB LTE Note 10.1 2014's high price down by $100.
The LG G Pad 8.3 entered the Play Store nearly a week ago, becoming the first Google Play Edition tablet and the closest thing you can get to an 8-inch Nexus. Unfortunately, this model is no cheaper than the original, and at $349 for 16GB, it's over $100 more expensive than the Nexus 7. But here's the deal - if you don't mind using a G Pad 8.3 with LG's less-than-stellar custom software, or you're up for installing a custom ROM yourself, then you might like to know that you can get the original G Pad 8.3 for $299.99 from eBay and Best Buy.
We've seen more than a few smartwatches in the last year or so, and for my money, the Pebble is still the only one that's worthy of serious consideration. If you're of the same mind, you can pick one up for thirty dollars off the asking price at Amazon and Best Buy right now. Both merchants are selling the Pebble smartwatch for $119.99.
If you're currently enrolled in a college or university (or you, ahem, have some other access to a .edu email address), Best Buy is also offering an additional $30 discount for students.
When Sony released the Xperia Tablet Z back in May, it turned out to be a surprisingly good tablet. Only six months have passed since then, and while numerous alternatives have come out in that time, it's still a solid piece of hardware. Now, listen close. If you don't have any qualms about using pre-owned hardware, you may be pleased to know that you can currently get this 10-inch tablet for just $235, a price that is significantly lower than its $499 launch price and only marginally more expensive than a Nexus 7.
Best Buy sells a ton of electronics over the course of any given year, and it should come as no surprise that they stock up on a good deal of accessories to go with them. Now Best Buy is letting some of these add-ons go for 20% off until December 25th.
Of particular interest to us are the many accessories for smartphones and tablets. While it can be tedious scrolling through all of the Apple-related gear, some goodies such as Rocketfish USB cables, a mophie external battery pack, Wacom styli, and Belkin keyboard cases are perfectly compatible with Android devices and are joined by around 300 other items catered to tablets.
Having rechargeable batteries is nice, but everything comes with its own cable these days. As a result, attempting to charge multiple devices at once can turn the space behind that nightstand into an unmanageable cluster of cables. But more and more devices now support wireless charging, and if you want to add your Galaxy Note 3 to that list, you need to invest in a wireless charging cover. While this extension would normally cost $39.99, today you can get it for just $19.99 from the Samsung store.
Google wants to entice you to buy a Nexus 7 from the Play Store, but at the end of the day, it doesn't matter where you pick one up. So if you're looking to snag one in time for Christmas at a discounted price, Office Depot is currently willing to sell you one for $50 off. This brings the price of the 16GB model down to $179.99.
If you insist on buying the larger 32GB model (and really, I wouldn't blame you), Office Depot is willing to part with that for $40 off the usual retail price.
If you're looking for a tablet with world-beating specs, one of the highest-resolution screens available, and impressive expansion options, you'll want to look at Amazon today. The new ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity, with its NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor and 2560x1600 screen, is fifty bucks off the retail price. You can pick it up on Amazon for $399.95, with free two-day shipping if you're an Amazon Prime subscriber. It's unclear if this is a sale or a new regular price.
