Best Buy has a handful of deals targeted at college students that are bound to put a smile on a smartphone enthusiast's face, even if none of them actually help anyone with their education. Some of these offers preserve more money than others, with the Chromecast's $29.99 sales price saving customers only $5 bucks. On the other hand, or should I say - wrist, Best Buy is cutting $30 off the price of the Pebble smartwatch.
Frequent fliers breathed a sigh of relief when the FAA ruled that most electronics could be used from takeoff to landing, and Amazon was a big part of that decision. To celebrate they're having a one day sale on two 7-inch Kindle models, the new Kindle Fire HDX and the year-old Fire HD. Enter the code "ThnksFAA" (note spelling) at checkout and you can take 15% off the regular price.
There's a lot to like about Motorola's Verizon-specific DROID line. They don't have the most groundbreaking specs, but they're covered in Kevlar and they feature Motorola's excellent radios and battery life. If you're looking to get your Active Notifications on for not much cash. Amazon has some massive discounts on the three new models. New Verizon customers can pick up the long-lived DROID MAXX for $69.99, and svelte DROID Ultra or the compact DROID Mini for just a penny.
It's been a busy 24 hours since Android 4.4 KitKat and the Nexus 5 were announced. You probably stayed up all night reading the news and furiously refreshing the UPS tracking page to see if your phone shipped yet. Well, relax. You have to come down from that KitKat high sometime, and what better way than with some nice, inexpensive apps and games?
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.
By all accounts, the Galaxy Gear isn't doing spectacularly well. Samsung is still busy adding support for its smart watch to devices other than the Note 3, and the device itself is not without its foibles. Still, your choices are limited when it comes to smart watches, so you might as well save 20 bucks.
The Galaxy Gear has a 1.63-inch AMOLED screen with support for catching your Android notifications and telling you what's up (sometimes) without looking at the phone.
The LG G2 is barely out of the starting gate, but there have already been some impressive discounts on the flagship device. This weekend Amazon beats them all, at least if you're a prospective Verizon customer. Amazon Wireless is offering the G2 for a single penny if you sign a new contract or add a line to your account. If you're due for an upgrade, you can get it for $99.99 - not bad at all.
