Well, it's the start of a new week, but I think this one is more special than most. Google I/O kicks off on Wednesday, and I am sure that there will be plenty of exciting news. To tide you over until then, I've got the first round of app sales for the week. Read More
If you saw our comparison of 2017 Android Wear watches, you'll know most new smartwatches are pretty pricey. If you don't feel like emptying your wallet, the LG Urbane 2nd Edition is just $171.99 on eBay (which is about $20 less than the current average price). Read More
This one is a huge price drop. Just a few days ago this was $550 on Amazon (although it has been down around $450 a few times, like back at the beginning of April), but right now Huawei's Jewel/Pearl model of their OG smartwatch is $220.

However, dbrand is claiming that its new 'Black Dragon' (amazing name, by the way) skin is made of the grippiest material that it's ever made available. That's a big statement to make, but given the robot-run company's track record of bluntness on social media and the like, I'm inclined to believe it. Read More
Amazon has knocked $100 off the price of the black stainless Huawei Watch today, bringing it down to $250. Those looking for an entry into the world of Android Wear devices could do a lot worse. Read More
Unlocked phones are great. You can take them to whichever carrier you desire, you usually have greater control over software modification, and you don't have to deal with contracts. Amazon seems to think so, too; as a result, it's running an "Amazon Unlocked Phone Event" that starts today, with discounts on Sony Xperia, LeEco, Lenovo, ASUS, and Coolpad smartphones. Read More
