That's a whopping $200 off the original price, by far the lowest it has ever been (the last lowest price was $470).

[Deal Alert] Take 15% (and extra 5% with Red card) off almost anything at Target

Here's a deal that should please just about everyone. Target's Cyber Monday promotion started today and is offering 15 percent off tens of thousands of different products. Purchases made with a Target Red card are also eligible for an addition 5% off for a total savings of near 20% (the 5% discount is applied after the 15% discount, so it's slightly less than 20% off).

As you might imagine, certain brands and product categories are excluded from the promotion. The most notable exclusions for our tech addicted readers are Bose, GoPro, Sonos, Google products, DSLR cameras, LG & Samsung TVs. Dairy products, alcohol, Vitamix blenders, and Elf on the Shelf are also on the excluded products list.

[Deal Alert] Huawei's new MediaPad M3 tablet is already $60 off, down to $239 on Amazon

The MediaPad M3, Huawei's latest attempt to compete with mid-sized tablets in the iPad Mini niche, has only been officially available in the US for a week. But the tablet is already on sale, and by an impressive 20% no less. Amazon is selling the MediaPad M3 for $239, $60 off the retail price. That's not bad at all for a device with its specs, especially since competition in the premium Android tablet space (and in this smaller form factor) seems to be so thin these days.

[Deal Alert] Get Huawei's Honor 8 for $289.99 ($110 off) with a bunch of free stuff ($25 gift card, cases, earphones, and more) from Newegg

The Honor 8 suffers an affliction that many Chinese phones are prone to: excellent hardware let down by poorly-made software. However, thanks to a beta of EMUI 5 that supposedly improves the software a bunch, the phone may be worth considering now - especially with this Black Friday deal. If a $110 discount on both the 32GB and 64GB models wasn't enough, Newegg is also throwing in the most amount of things I've ever seen bundled with a phone.

Huawei executive confirms company passed on chance to produce Google's Pixel phones

According to German blog WinFuture, VP of Huawei Consumer Business Group Colin Giles confirmed on the record that the company passed on a chance to be the manufacturer of the Google Pixel. The reason, according to Giles, was as we reported a little over a month ago: branding.

Huawei had no desire to go back to making phones for someone else, and Google didn't want a manufacturing partner's trademark featured anywhere on the Pixels or in their marketing. So, a potentially multi-year smartphone partnership that started with the Nexus 6P instead ended there. What could have been will likely remain a mystery - it's not even clear if Google's plans for the Pixel phones had fully materialized during negotiations with Huawei, or if the resultant decision to go with HTC may have led to larger strategy changes for the products.

Huawei is launching an Honor 8 EMUI 5.0 beta test in cooperation with XDA

Huawei has made some great hardware, but the software is another story. The EMUI Android skin has been consistently sluggish, confusing, and redundant. Huawei has been promising a big redesign in EMUI 5.0, and now users of the Honor 8 have a shot at trying it out. You have to apply for inclusion in the beta test, and you can do so (oddly) at XDA.

The price is pretty big for Huawei too at €699 ($776). You might have the option to buy it in the US at some point as well.

[Deal Alert] Get a refurbished Huawei Watch for just $159.99 from Newegg's eBay store

Android Wear deals are pretty abundant nowadays, and the fact that many major OEMs won't be releasing any new AW-powered smartwatches this year makes them even more appealing.
