Aside from its Anker deal, Amazon has a bonus Gold Box deal today that may be of even more interest to you, fellow Android enthusiasts. The second generation Moto G is down $40 on the site, dropping to one of the lowest prices we have seen it at: $139.99. The cheapest it has been sold for was $149.99, and that was only for one day back in December.
The third generation Moto G may be around the corner, but this 2nd generation model is still one of the best low midrange Android devices, at a very affordable price. Read More
An external USB-powered battery is not a complex piece of electronics. Generally it has energy input, energy output via a couple of standard USB ports, maybe a few LED lights for measuring the charge, and perhaps a flashlight if the manufacturer is feeling creative. But today's Amazon Gold Box deal includes a battery that can actually start your car. How's that for flexibility? The Anker gadget (an economical brand name we've come to trust) is going for $59.99, $100 off the retail price. Read More
Do you need a great unlocked phone for under $200? Do you want one that's bigger than the ones Motorola offers in that price range? Then you'd be hard-pressed to find a better candidate than the BLU Studio 6.0 HD. While the phone's specs are decidedly low-end, the $189 retail price makes it an awesome deal for those who are cash strapped, or heck, just those who don't want to spend $600 or more on a Galaxy Note.

About a year and a half ago when David Ruddock reviewed JBL's Charge portable speaker, he came away with an excellent impression, with the only caveat being that it might be a little too pricey. That problem has been alleviated by Amazon, at least for today: the online retailer has given the Charge a $60 price drop on the Gold Box deal portal. That's a great price, but it also means that the discount is available for one day only. Read More
It's time to replenish your stock of flash memory. For today's Gold Box deal of the day, Amazon is offering up to 70% off of SanDisk microSD cards, SD cards, and flash drives. Prices range from a 16GB flash drive for $7.99 (down from $29.99) to a 128GB microSD card for $89.99 (down from $129.99).
As far as most Android devices are concerned, the microSD cards here are all that matter. Read More
Amazon's daily Gold Box deal usually only includes one or two items, but the retailer is going all out today with two dozen deals on various accessories. Some of these are relevant to Android and others not so much. Let's check out the most notable ones. Read More
Amazon is slashing the price on its top-of-the-line Kindle Fire tablet right before Christmas, coincidentally on the last day you can order one with two-day shipping before the big day. All of the various Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 models are 30% off today. There are technically twelve different buying options for the HDX: 32GB or 64GB, Wi-Fi or GSM LTE or Verizon LTE, and with or without advertising on the screensaver. Read More
V-MODA's Crossfade M-80 headphones are discounted all the way to $79.99, a whopping $150 savings from their retail price. These are top-of-the-line headphones that are arguably worth shelling out for when they are $230, making this deal hard to pass up if you are in the market for some great cans. It is a one-day Amazon Gold Box deal, though, so you'll have to snatch them up quickly before Amazon runs out of stock. Read More
The premium Kindle Fire HDX tablets don't usually seem like a great value to me, but maybe they're worth picking up this holiday season with today's sizeable $125 discount. This deal is only valid today (December 15th) and it covers several flavors of the previous-generation Fire HDX.
One of today's Amazon Gold Box deals is on the second generation Motorola Moto G, arguably the best budget device on the market. For December 9th only and as long as supplies last, the price on the Moto G US and International versions in both black and white is reduced $30, down to $149.99.
If I had to buy an off-contract phone right now, it would probably be this one. Read More
