Amazon subsidiary Woot.com has taken the wraps off another one of its big tablet sales. This promotion isn't like their normal "one deal a day" operations - the prices will be good until November 1st at 9AM Central, though the individual listings are still limited by stock. The good deals are on refurbished Samsung and Asus hardware, though some of the dirt-cheap tablets you might see in the discount aisle are also there.
We've featured various incarnations of the Nexus 10 on dozens of deals at this point. If you want a cheap, powerful, 10-inch AOSP tablet and you don't have one by now, you've got no one to blame but yourself. That said, if you're looking for one last chance at a deal, we've got your back. Woot has the 32GB version of the Nexus 10 available for $329.99 plus $5 shipping.
The Nexus 10 is nearly a year old, but we don't have any solid news on its successor just yet. Even though it's getting long in the tooth, Google's first 10-inch Nexus slate still has a lot of good features. You can grab the 32GB version of this device today on eBay for the low price of $349.99, down from $499.99 in Google Play for this model.
The Nexus 10 packs a dual-core Exynos 5 ARM chip, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage.
If you've been patiently waiting for the Nexus 10 to go on sale before you snatch one up, this may be your best opportunity before Google puts out a refreshed model. eBay Daily Deals (which really seems to love those Nexus tablets for some reason) has once again featured the biggest of Google's tablets. You can pick one up for $319.00, which is the lowest price we've seen for this model lately.
Last month, Geek.com's Russell Holly reported that ASUS would be crafting the next-generation Nexus 10 rather than Samsung, the manufacturer who brought us the first iteration of Google's ten-inch tablet.
The report was followed quickly by the rolling back of WSJ's Amir Efrati's previous statements, and relied on "multiple sources," among them a screenshot from Best Buy's internal inventory system.
Today the claim was given a bit more credence, with a PCWorld inventory screen snapped by PCWorld employee @Rage06 surfacing on Twitter.
The Nexus 10 might be getting a little long in the tooth, but it still has the best screen you'll find on a 10-inch Android tablet. Google is still asking $399 for the 16GB N10, but eBay Daily Deal has it for a mere $339.99. This is a brand new item – not a refurb or open box unit.
The Nexus 10 runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and will probably continue to get updates for another year or so.
Avast's Android offering has been a top-notch product since it was released, and the company has put in a lot of hard work to continuously make it better since then. Recently, it launched some Premium features for its Mobile Security app, which offer some incredible functionality for only two bucks a month ($15 if you pay for a full year). Before we get into our newest Mega Giveaway with avast!, let's take a closer look at some of the features unlocked in Mobile Security Premium.
Update: Multiple confirmations now that this update is indeed happening. Commenters and some well-known XDA users are getting JWR66Y. It's still looking like a minor security update and nothing more.
Update 2: The 3G Nexus 7 (2012) is getting the update as well. Not only that, the OTA update link has been spotted. This is the Nakasig version, remember. The WiFi variant is Nakasi, and no news on that yet.
eBay certainly seems to like their Nexus tablets, not that we're complaining. After featuring the new Nexus 7 yesterday (and selling out rather quickly) they've repeated the Daily Deal on the Nexus 10 from exactly one week ago. That's $369.99 for a brand new 32GB Nexus 10, with free shipping to the United States.
Ready for some more Android Open Source Project woes? In addition to the Nexus 7 drama over AOSP builds in the last couple of weeks, it looks like there are some issues with the Nexus 10 as well. Don't worry, the Android 4.3 factory image for the N10 is sitting on the Google Developers page, proud and happy, but the binaries and drivers for some individual components on the tablet seem to be missing, most notably the graphics driver.
