Two days ago, Barnes & Noble dropped a bomb by announcing full Google Play integration for its Nook HD and HD+ tablets. Now, it's looking to move even more units than before by offering a killer Mothers' Day deal for the next week: the Nook HD will be $150, and the HD+ $180 for the base storage options. That's a killer deal.

For those who may not be familiar with the Nook HD lineup, here's a quick look at what each has to offer:

Nook HD
  • 7-inch 1440x900 display (243 PPI)
  • 1.5Ghz dual-core TI OMAP4470 processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB built-in storage (16GB version available), microSD card slot
  • Wi-Fi b/g/n
  • microUSB, microHDMI
  • Based on Android 4.0
Nook HD+
  • 9-inch 1920x1080 display (256 PPI)
  • 1.5GHz dual-core TI OMAP4470 processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16GB built-in storage (32GB version available), microSD card slot
  • Wi-Fi b/g/n
  • microUSB, microHDMI
  • Based on Android 4.0

This deal is good from now until Mothers' Day (May 12th), so if you're looking for a tablet that won't break the bank (for you or mom!), this one's hard to pass up.

There are people who don't care about weather forecasts (like me), people who do care (probably the majority of you), and then there are people who want to know everything about the weather to the point that these images a) make sense and b) replace porn for them. If you belong to the latter category and haven't bought the pricey $9.99 PYKL3 Radar yet, I have some good news that may just help pull the trigger.

The latest and greatest Nexus phone - the 16GB Nexus 4 - is available in limited quantities for $375 from eBay Daily Deals today. "But it's selling for $349.99 from the Play Store!" you might exclaim. "How is this a deal?" Let me break it down a bit.

  1. You will find that Google may charge tax in your state. For example, in California, the Play Store adds on $30.54 of tax for me.

Who's ready to kick the weekend off?! If you're looking for a good way to get a relaxing start to your two-days-off, kicking back with a game is a good way to do it. Or maybe you plan on getting out and about but can't put your phone down long enough to actually go somewhere – no worries, there's an app that'll let you walk and text to your heart's content without fear of bumping things or falling into a fountain.

If you're a Verizon Wireless subscriber looking to get your hands on a shiny new Galaxy S4 come release day, you're probably weighing your various pre-order options already. Well, Wirefly's one you can toss into the mix, and with a half-decent deal - their Verizon GS4 is just $179.99 for new account or upgrades, $20 less than Verizon's price. Here's the white version, and here's the black.

Even better, Wirefly doesn't charge sales tax for many states, and that's actually a big savings, since generally you're charged the full MSRP of the phone for sales tax.

The Droid DNA may not have Boomsound, Ultrapixels, or other HTC-branded buzzwords, but it's most definitely the best HTC device you'll find on Verizon right now. And if you're dead set on not paying more than a fifty spot for a new phone, the DNA is your ticket to a high-end smartphone that won't break the bank - , so long as you're willing to buy directly from HTC.

It's pretty rare that we find the manufacturer of a device selling its phones cheaper than, say, Amazon Wireless or Wirefly, but that's exactly what HTC is doing here with the DNA.

There are still very few "universal" docks available for Android users, but if you own a Samsung smartphone, this little baby comes pretty close. The Samsung Galaxy Multimedia Desktop Charging Dock includes a spiffy flip-out stand big enough to support the biggest of Notes, plus an audio-out 3.5mm jack for easy output to a nearby speaker. One Amazon vendor is selling the dock for just sixteen dollars American, a discount of more than two thirds off the retail price.

Today's Amazon Appstore deal is quite the bargain, and its value speaks for itself. Jump Desktop isn't the only remote desktop client out there, but it has no shortage of features. The app supports both RDP and VNC protocols, so if you have either already configured on your PC, you're good to go. Jump Desktop does not require that you install additional software on your machine. Awesome? Awesome.

The app allows you to control your computer as though it were a tablet, with pinch-zoom and two finger scrolling both supported.

I may be an unabashed lover of quality audio, but the sheer "d'awww" factor of this bugdroid portable speaker is enough to contemplate reaching for my credit card right now. This isn't a new product, but it normally costs $30, and it's just $20 right now at Best Buy's website (free shipping).

It manages 8 watts of peak output, stows an 850mAh lithium ion battery that can be used for up to 6 hours of maximum volume playback, and has a retractable 3.5mm stereo cable (no Bluetooth, sorry).

Another day, another set of app sales - today's items all fall squarely in the "games" category (for the moment), but they're a few relatively good one. Read on for the list. Head over to yesterday's post for even more awesome deals (including the Metal Slug ports, a must-buy in my opinion).

We'll update this post if we stumble across any more noteworthy discounts today.
