If you're dead set on getting a tablet but not dropping a penny over $100 on it...then you can't really expect to get a top-of-the-line gadget. If you're aware of what a Benny will get, however, then this deal may be one for you. For today only, you can get a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite from eBay Daily Deals for one, single, solitary hundred dollar bill (free shipping, too). Well, you can't actually send them a bill, but you get the idea.
Finding a decent ten inch tablet that won't break the bank can be an interesting process. There are so many options on the market, it's easy to get overwhelmed. If, however, you're in the market for something from the ASUS Transformer line, there's a pretty solid deal on eBay happening right now: the Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T is just $200. Keep in mind that we're talking about the Tegra 3 model here, by the way - not last year's TF701, which features the Tegra 4 chip.
When it comes to publishers, few names stand out in the technical world like O'Reilly. With literally thousands of books and videos, there are topics ranging from Programming to Business, and Fitness to Photography. Not only does O'Reilly print under its own name, but it also owns several other brands including: Wiley, Packt Publishing, No Starch Press, and more. Almost every developer probably has a small stack of books with the trademark line-drawn animals on the covers.
If you were to head to the Play Store right now and pick up a 16GB Nexus 7, you'd shell out $230. While it's worth every penny of that asking price, you could save yourself nearly $100 by instead opting to grab a refurbished model from eBay. With recertified devices currently selling for $140 on the 'bay, there really isn't much of a reason not to own one at this point.
Mother's Day will arrive next month, but it's never too early to appreciate that special woman who brought you into this world and/or devoted many years of her life to raising you. Many will be happy to receive nice flowers, a thoughtful card, or some article of clothing - but for that tech-savvy, Nexus-toting mom out there, the Play Store is here to help. Google has kicked off a Mother's Day promotion that will last until May 5th, offering up an entire year's subscription to certain magazines for just $5 and 50% off a good number of books (unfortunately, since there's no gifting functionality built into Google Play, you will have to buy these things under her account somehow).
Amazon is no stranger to offering solid deals on brand-spankin-new handsets (and with Wirefly out of the way, it essentially has little-to-no competition these days), and it's now offering a great deal for potential Sprint customers who are considering the HTC One M8.
For the time being, Sprintsters can grab the handset for $150 on-contract – a good price in itself – but those who open a new line of service will also get a $50 Amazon gift card.
Looking for a good mid-sized tablet? You can't do much better than the LG G Pad 8.3, the company's first tablet in two years, at least in terms of hardware. The price is a bit high at $350 retail, but today you can get some relief from that sticker shock. Newegg has the G Pad 8.3 on sale for just $279.99, plus a $30 discount with a code at checkout, bringing the total price down to a very reasonable $249.99.
It wasn't that long ago when Google announced that it had entered a cross-licensing deal with Samsung, and just two days ago, it entered one with Cisco as well. Not to be left out, Samsung announced today that it, too, had signed a deal with Cisco. As a part of this deal, both companies will have access to the other's patent portfolios for the next ten years.
Like the deals that came before, this agreement aims to reduce the risk of unnecessary patent lawsuits in the future.
If there's a Micro Center nearby and you've yet to jump on the tablet bandwagon, now's your chance to do it on the cheap. For a limited time, MC is selling the 2013 Nexus 7 for up to $70 off its normal price: the 32GB model is only $199 ($70 off), and the 16GB model is going for $179 ($50 off). That's a good savings – and it's worth noting that these are brand new units, not refurbs.
