You don't have to sacrifice quality to get a good deal. Simply wait for awesome stuff to go on sale, and snatch it up. Or just keep reading Android Police and we'll tell you when that happens. That's actually what's happening right now.
Verizon is already selling the new HTC One, and you can get two of them cheap as long as you don't mind signing a new contract. The buy-one-get-one-free deal on Verizon is enticing if you need two phones, but it gets even better. You can get 30% off the cost of the phone you're actually paying for.
The Ouya hasn't lived up to expectations, but the console is getting really affordable if you're looking for something quick and easy for living room gaming. Today's Amazon gold box deal includes the Ouya for $69.99 ($30 off retail) plus $25 in game credit. It's kind of like getting an Ouya for $45, all things considered.
Has the prospect of KitKat and streaming PC games from anywhere not sold you on NVIDIA's SHIELD gaming machine? Not even the promise of Portal? Well aren't you hard to please. How about a price cut, bringing the final retail cost of the SHIELD down to $199? That's cheaper than the Nexus 7, and it puts the SHIELD in the same range as dedicated gaming portables like the PlayStation Vita and the Nintendo 3DS.
If you're looking for a Nexus 10 on the cheap, your day has arrived. Mosey on over to eBay Daily Deals, and you can pick up a new, factory-fresh 32 GB model for a lowly $299.99.
In case you're counting, this is $200, or roughly 40%, off of the $499.99 MSRP. This would be a good deal for a refurb, so it's even better that these are new and factory sealed.
Samsung really likes expandable storage. Pretty much every single Samsung phone and tablet out there includes support for MicroSD cards, and with today's Amazon Gold Box sale, you can take advantage of them. Amazon's one-day sale portal has heavily discounted Samsung MicroSD cards for sale, with dramatic discounts on both speedy cards and more economical options.
The "PLUS" MicroSD cards are the ones we'd recommend - they're considerably slower than the more expensive "PRO" models, but for expanded storage in a phone or tablet, you really don't need screaming speeds.
Kobo is not a name that you hear a lot in the tablet space, but it does make them. Kobo's pitch is directed at heavy readers, but the Arc 10HD is packing some serious gaming muscle behind its bookish exterior. For a limited time, you can have this device for $299.99, which is $100 cheaper than usual.
The Kobo Arc 10HD has a Tegra 4 ARM chip, 2GB of RAM, a 10-inch 2560x1600 LCD, and 16GB of storage.
