Well that was fast. Just after Motorola's DROID RAZR HD and RAZR MAXX HD launched at Verizon and Amazon, we've already got a great deal on both devices. Wirefly, another popular smartphone retailer, is offering the RAZR HD for $149.99 (about $50 off) on contract, and the RAZR MAXX HD for $199.99 (about a $100 discount).
If you're itching for the RAZR (MAXX) HD and want what is the best deal we've seen yet (in the half hour since launch), hit the appropriate link below and claim yours.
If you're not impressed by the leak-happy LG Nexus, and don't buy into the somewhat fuzzy rumors that we'll see multiple Nexus phones this year but you're still seeking a pure Google experience in a gorgeous, powerful frame, Daily Steals has just what you're looking for.
The popular 24-hour sale site is offering the Samsung Galaxy Nexus 16GB, unlocked for GSM networks, for just $319.99. For reference, that's about $30 cheaper than Google's current price, and with a mere $5 shipping charge, it's a fantastic deal.
Before we get too far into this, let's point out that this rumor is coming from an Israeli newspaper, so it is easy enough for a company to disavow stories like these. With that disclaimer out of the way: Amazon may be looking into buying Texas Instrument's OMAP business. As we already know, TI has expressed interest in getting out of the mobile game. Not to say they'll stop making processors, but that the focus would be less on tablets and phones, and more on embedded SoCs for a variety of applications (such as automotive, vision, and robotics).
The Bard's Tale is huge in just about every way. It's a 3.5GB download (at most), it's a long, elaborate game and, until now, it was $6, which is not quite expensive, but certainly pricier than the average game. Today's sale, however, brings the cost down to an outright bargain. For $3 you can get the full Cary Elwes experience on your phone or tablet. It's almost unreasonable not to go for it.
Residents of the great white north have a special treat coming up soon. The Galaxy Note II is coming to Mobilicity the day before Halloween. If you know you're going to want it on day one, though, you can sign up for a pre-order right now and get $50 off. Unfortunately, the ad doesn't specify just what price you'll get $50 off of.
One tipster sent in an email that he received after placing his order.
If you do a lot of text entry on your tablet or smartphone, then you know what a cumbersome process it is. Pounding out a 200 word email on that touchscreen isn't the only option, though - you need to get yourself a Bluetooth keyboard.
There's no time like the present to make that happen, either - NewEgg has Motorola's official Bluetooth keyboard for Android on sale for a mere $23 until October 10th.
Android users tend to balk at apps that cost more than $5 or so, but in this case it might be worth shelling out, at least if you're a SlingBox owner. The mobile client for the popular media streaming gadget has been given a temporary price cut: a whole 50% off! ...which sounds a lot better than $14.99, half its normal price of $30. On top of that, there are separate versions of the app for smartphones and tablets.
Sure, the RAZR MAXX HD may be the new hotness of the RAZR family, but if you're looking to get some extra-long battery life on the cheap, Amazon's deal on last year's model may be of interest to you. Today, you can get the RAZR MAXX 4G for $50 on a new two-year contract. If you're an existing customer looking to upgrade, the device will run you $70, which is comparable to prices you'll find at Wirefly.
Remember the Philips Fidelio AS851 we reviewed last year? Well, it's smaller counterpart, the AS351 is once again on sale, this time for the crazy-low price of $24.99 from CowBoom. For reference, the AS351's list price is $129.99, and Amazon's price is $81.57, a little over $56 more expensive than CowBoom's offer.
While, unlike the AS851, this dock doesn't offer a remote control, this little speaker is Bluetooth capable and only a little less powerful than its more expensive counterpart, and at $24.99 is a complete steal.
When Matt reviewed Tiny Bang Story yesterday, he found it big on imagination, but gameplay came up short. If the $3 price tag was too large of a risk for you, though, maybe this sale will be more your size. HeroCraft has shrunk the price by two thirds, bringing it down to an outright miniscule $1. Any smaller and you'd need a magnifying glass to find it.
