The retail slugfest that is Black Friday is almost upon us, and several stores are eager to get in a few punches before the bell. That includes Staples, which is reviving its well-received $50 off tablets coupon from earlier this year. The coupon is valid online, in stores, or over the phone (people still shop over the phone?) but it will expire after today, November 27th.
Of course there are a few stipulations. Read More
Google would love for you to put a Nexus 7 under someone's tree this holiday season, but they also don't want anyone who can't part with $229+ at the moment to feel left out - so they're now offering customers who purchase a Chromecast from Google Play with a free HD movie rental. If Play Movies isn't quite your cup of tea, you're also free to take $6 in Play Store credit instead. Read More
The ranks of Android tablets continue to swell, and for the first time Lenovo is making a play for some market share. Granted, it's coming in at the low end of the market, but the new Yoga tablets are on sale through the company's corporate perks site with some solid discounts.
Christmas is fast approaching, and if you were already considering picking up a Nexus 7 for a special someone, Google's offering a little something extra to sweeten the deal. For a limited time, both 16GB and 32GB Nexus 7s purchased from the Play Store will come with $25 in Google Play credit. That's not as appealing as saving $30 off a device, especially once taxes are taken into account, but it's still a nice way to fill a new purchase with content. Read More
We've talked about the Fuhu Nabi 2 quite a bit over the last year or so, and it's probably my favorite tablet designed specifically for kids. It's built tough, packed full of useful educational software, and sports enough power to stick with your little one for at least a few years.
Update: It looks like Wal-Mart has 'em beat, because they're letting the Nabi 2 go for $99 November 28th thru December 1st. Read More
If you've been hankering for a Samsung Galaxy Note 3, the high price for Verizon's contract phone may be off-putting. Wirefly is offering the Verizon Note 3 for $199.99 with a new contract, but Amazon has one-upped them - they've got the same phone-contract combo for just $169.99. The price for both is $249.99 ($50 off Verizon's price) for returning customers.
You could take the view that Wirefly has a better deal here, at least if you're willing to wait. Read More
It's back to the daily grind today, but you can still maybe have some fun in between all the soul-crushing monotony and meetings about meetings. We can even save you some money on apps, which will certainly be a great conversation starter when you run into the head of international accounting and compliance at the vending machine. Actually, if your job is anything like that, you should maybe just quit and enjoy the cheap apps. Read More
Looking to get your hands on HTC's new super-sized One? Then Wirefly is happy to offer it at a discount, at least if your preferred carrier is Sprint. Right now the service and hardware reseller is selling the HTC One Max for $129.99 for new Sprint customers and $199.99 for returning customers who re-sign their contract. Not bad for a brand-new flagship.
Technically new customers are getting a $120 discount off of the $250 retail contract price, but Sprint offers a $100 discount for porting your number from another service, so the effective price change is twenty bucks. Read More
If you simply can't wait for the next Humble bundle to roll around, there's now an Android-specific alternative available. iKoid is a new service that just released its first indie game bundle, this time at a fixed but very reasonable price of $2.49. It includes five games: They Need To Be Fed, Bridge Constructor Playground, Hero Of Many, Don't Run With A Plasma Sword, And Streetfood Tycoon Extreme, which would cost about $9 together on the Google Play Store.

The Nexus 10 might be a year old, but it's still a formidable tablet with an amazing screen. Google is still selling the 32GB Nexus 10 for $499, which seems a bit steep. Tech Woot is offering the same device as a refurbished unit for a mere $279.
