The week is nearly over, so perhaps you're wondering what you'll do with yourself all weekend. We have the answer – you will enjoy some apps and games you obtained for a pittance thanks to your most favorite website in the world, Android Police.
If you think that the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition is a bit on the pricey side, you're not alone. Amazon, unstoppable global retailing juggernaut and champion of the underdog that it is, has decided to lighten the load a bit. If you purchase a new 16GB Note 10.1 from Amazon, you can get a free $50 gift card good for anything on the site. So basically, good for anything.
Of course the original price is still a whopping $549, so even assuming that you'll use every penny of the gift card, you'll still be spending five hundred bucks for a tablet.
You don't need to have one of those super hefty extended battery phones to burn through juice with wanton disregard for the future. All you need is a big honking external battery, and we found just the thing on sale today. The Anker Astro E4 is a 13,000mAh rechargeable cell that is usually only $44. That's a good deal, but for the next few days, it's down to $36.99.
The Anker Astro E4 weighs under 11oz and can charge most smartphones 5-6 times without needing to juice up itself.
Hey you. Yes, you, the bitter, angst-ridden Verizon customer who's upset that you've got a snowball's chance in Hell of getting the next Nexus machine on Big Red. Let me console you with deals on a pair of new flagship devices: one that's got pretty much the same guts as the upcoming Nexus, and one that has software that looks kinda like a Nexus. Sort of. If you squint a bit.
Charging up phones, tablets, Bluetooth accessories, and external batteries can be a logistical nightmare. As someone who reviews phones (I had, no joke, 9 Android devices on my desk last week at one point), it's a problem that has driven me to the edge of sanity on multiple occasions. As such, I never travel far without a trusty USB wall charger and a portable power strip. The thing is, though, until recently, I wasn't exactly on top of charging my stuff, especially at home (aka work).
If you're dedicated to The Now Network and plan on renewing the two-year grip it has on your wallet with the Galaxy Note 3, you're in for a bit of a shocker: the on-contract price is $350. New customers can use the $100 port-in credit to get it for just $250. Ouch.
Thankfully, Wirefly is here to make the upgrade cost a little easier to swallow by knocking a fifty spot off of Sprint's offering, so you can nab this gargantuan for $300.
