If you have a Nexus 7 or 5, then there's a good chance you've looked at all of El Goog's accessories in the Play Store. There's also a good chance you scoffed at the prices of said accessories, because let's be honest here – they're not cheap.
To make such a purchase easier on your wallet, however, Google has slashed 25% off the prices of most Nexus 7 and 5 cases (including folios and such). It may not be a huge savings, but 75% of the original price is still better than 100%, I suppose.
So there you go. If you're looking for a way to brighten up, protect, or otherwise add some flare to your tablet or phone, now's the time to grab some of the official accessories. Read More
It's been a long week, and don't you deserve a treat? I mean, let's not get carried away – a moderately priced treat would probably be the best course of action. Some apps and games that happen to be on sale will do nicely.
It's another gloomy Monday morning, and that means it's back to the salt mines (or air conditioned office, or whatever). Let us brighten your day a little with some inexpensive apps and games. It is literally the absolute least we can do.
So maybe you missed that mega Moto X deal last month – that's okay. Motorola still really wants you to buy a Moto X. The price was permanently knocked down by $100 last week, and now Motorola is sweetening the pot even more with a free Chromecast for a limited Time.
The deal is only valid through 11:59pm ET on January 14th. All you have to do is add a Chromecast to your cart containing a 16 or 32GB Moto X and enter the code STREAM. This works with the Moto Maker and Developer edition phones.
The Chromecast is just a little $35 dongle, but it's kind of like getting free money if you were planning to get one anyway. Read More
The Nexus 10 may not have viewed 2013 as a good year to make a comeback, but the Galaxy Note 10.1 did, and it did so with style. The model rolled in an improved display, a better stylus, and the faux-leather backing that Samsung also stuck on the Galaxy Note 3. It's not the most affordable tablet out there, but Newegg's willing to let go of one for 10% off. You just need to enter the coupon code EMCPWPA23 before midnight January 10th.
You aren't restricted by this deal either. The coupon code applies to both the 16GB and 32GB variants of the tablet, bringing the former down to $494 and the latter to $540. Read More
OfficeMax may not be the first store you hit up when looking for new electronics, but the retailer is currently offering 20% off the price of a wide range of Android tablets and other items, including printers, ink, and other substantially less exciting necessities. To take advantage of the offer, you just have to pick out your product of choice and enter SAVE20 at checkout. The code is valid from now until January 11th.
While not all off the offered tablets are winners, some of the discounted ones include the 16GB Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 and the 32GB Nexus 7. With the former, 20% off amounts to a pretty sizable savings of $80, bringing the price down to $319.99. Read More
As CES continues to chug along, there are still things going on in Google Play that deserve your attention. We've got things to tell you about that are cheaper than they usually are – "sales" in the parlance of our time.
There will probably be untold heaps of smart watches announced at CES, but Qualcomm isn't just sitting on the sidelines. It has dropped the price of its limited-run Toq smart watch by $50, but it's a limited time offer. The new $299 price tag puts it right in line with the Samsung Galaxy Gear.
The Toq plugs into your Android device over Bluetooth to deliver notifications and control a handful of functions. The Toq sets itself apart from the competition with its Mirasol screen, which is a type of color e-paper technology that can display fluid animations. Thanks to Mirasol, the Toq can go several days in between charges and is readable in bright sunlight. Read More
One has to wonder: what's the point of a sale on a proverbially cheap item? And the obvious answer is, it's five bucks you wouldn't have otherwise had. So it is with Google's Chromecast streaming HDMI dongle, which has once again gone on sale at both Amazon and Best Buy. You can pick one up for $29.99 at either retailer, with free shipping for Prime members at the former and free shipping for everyone at the latter.
If you happen to be a member of Amazon's Student program, you can qualify for even more discounts. The total cost of the Chromecast for Amazon Student members is just $24.98, a full ten bucks off the $35 retail price. Read More
If you're in the market for a powerful phone that can take a few hits, then eBay's Daily Deals portal should be your first stop today.

The AT&T version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active is on sale for just $349.95 with free shipping to the US. You can have it in any color you want, as long as you want teal.
The Galaxy S4 Active is a strange beast, a "ruggedized" phone that's more like its flagship namesake than the usual tough-but-cheap phones in this particular segment. Read More
