If you're Cyber Monday shopping for a new phone and intend on ditching the "traditional" carrier for a much more affordable pay-as-you-go plan, Virgin Mobile may be a good place to start looking. For today only, the Sprint subsidiary has knocked $100 off three of its most popular phones: the HTC EVO V 4G is now $150, the Samsung Galaxy Reverb is $100, and the HTC One V can be scored for just $50.

Update: The price of the LG Intuition on Amazon has been dropped to a penny, a full $150 less than you'd pay at Verizon. We doubt this deal will last long, so if you're in the market for one (why?), now's the time to buy.
Maybe you like the whole phablet idea. Maybe the thought of a handset with an aspect ratio which rivals that of your old CRT monitor sounds like a good thing to you. Read More

Just the other day, we caught sight of a deal at Best Buy on a SanDisk Ultra 64GB microSD card. The class 6 card was a steal at $43. If you were hoping for something faster or cheaper though, Amazon's got a deal that brings you both – a 64GB SanDisk Ultra class 10 card for just $41.99. What's more, the card comes with its own SD adapter.
If you want to maximize your device's storage but don't want to spend too much money, just hit the link below. Read More
There's no doubt that the Nabi 2 is the absolute best tablet on the market designed just for kids. When I reviewed it back in June, I came away impressed with everything that Fuhu was able to pack into this device, all while keeping the price around $200 (that was, of course, before the Nexus 7 was announced, so a $200 tablet that didn't suck was impressive in itself). The build is solid, it's packed to the brim with educational software, and the Monarch UI is a fantastic and intuitive interface for kids. Read More
Amazon Wireless has been on a roll lately. Yesterday, they dropped the price of the Optimus G and a slew of Verizon phones, and today they've taken a bite out of the titanium variant of Sprint's Galaxy Note II for new customers. Originally $299, you can now score this powerhouse not-quite-a-tablet-but-more-than-a-phone handset for just $229 when you sign a new contract with The Now Network. Sorry current Sprint subscribers - you'll have to shell out $280 for this device. Read More
If you've been waiting around to pick up Samsung's Galaxy Note 10.1 (or just want to follow in the footsteps of the Brussels Philharmonic), Amazon's got a deal for you. The online shopping giant is offering up Samsung's 10" slate for a discount of $50 across all models. That means the 16GB (white and grey) version will cost you $449, while the 32GB variant (available in grey only) is $499. Read More
Just one week after bringing Play Music to France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the UK, Google has reached a major licensing deal with Armonia, a music licensing initiative that represents an alliance of publishers from across Europe. The deal will give Play customers access to Armonia's 5.5 million musical works licensed across over 30 countries.
If you're looking to save a hundred bucks or so on the powerhouse Optimus G from LG on either AT&T or Sprint, Amazon Wireless is the place to be. The company just dropped the price of the device for both carriers down to $99, which is a fairly substantial savings for such a high-end device, especially compared to the $199 that both Sprint and AT&T are asking.
For those who may not be aware, the Optimus G has the same hardware guts as the Nexus 4:
- Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 quad-core at 1.5GHz
- GPU: Adreno 320
- Network Compatibility: AT&T: GSM quad-band with LTE, Sprint: CDMA with LTE
- Operating System: Android 4.0.4 with Optimus UI 3.0
- Display: 4.7" TrueHD IPS+ 768x1280 (320DPI, 15:9)
- Memory: 2GB RAM / 16/32GB storage (depends on model)
- Cameras: 1.3MP front, 8/13MP rear (depends on model)
- Battery: 2100mAh, non-removable
- NFC: Yes
- Ports / Expandable Storage: microUSB / microSD (AT&T model only)
- Thickness: 8.45mm
- Weight: 145g
As noted above, the big difference between the two is in the area of storage: the AT&T model comes equipped with 16GB on-board, as well as a 16GB microSD card; whereas the Sprint version has 32GB with no microSD card slot. Read More
