Update: The discount on the 12-pack of tags has been reduced to 20%, bringing the total price up to $15.98. TagsForDroid spoke with us on the issue, saying that they had reserved a set number of packages at the reduced price, and ran out much faster than they anticipated. They apologized to those customers who couldn't get an order in quick enough to take advantage of the deal.
The NFC functionality included in most newer Android smartphones is pretty neat, but the utility is limited by the NFC-enabled hardware you have on hand. If you've been meaning to try out NFC in more practical applications, like contextual apps for your desk or car, you may want to check out the NFC tags from TagsForDroid.
If you're looking for a cheap, mod-worthy tablet with a great screen, look no further. Today eBay Daily Deals has the Nook HD+, with a 9-inch, 1920x1280 screen and built-in access to the Google Play Store for just $119.99. It's a refurbished model, but that's $30 and 20% cheaper than the already-low $150 retail price. The eBay listing has free standard shipping, plus you won't have to pay sales tax outside of New Jersey and New York.
The Nook HD+ doesn't have the latest and greatest internal hardware: the processor is a relatively dated Texas Instruments OMAP 1.5Ghz dual-core, there are no cameras, and storage is a bit lacking at 16GB.
The shiny new Nexus 7 may be the current king of the 7-inch jungle, but that doesn't mean you should pass up a good deal. The Kindle Fire HD - that's the upgraded 720p tablet, not the newer non-HD Fire - is $40 off for all models at the moment. The Amazon storefront shows "For a Limited Time," so we have no idea how long this price will last.
The price drop applies to all the variations of the 7-inch Kindle Fire HD. That makes the base 16GB WiFi model with "special offers" (integrated Amazon advertising) $159, the same price as the non-HD Fire, which is not on sale.
For most people, a black phone is fine. The slightly more trendy might be drawn to a clean white exterior. But not you. Oh no, you want a phone that's brown like fine Corinthian leather. A phone that you can feel proud to hoist above your head and exclaim for all the world to hear that you are a man, and this is a man's phone! Ladies will probably like it too, but for different reasons. Lucky for everyone, the brown Galaxy S4 for Verizon is on sale at Amazon for $119 on all new lines (or accounts), and $149 on upgrades.
Assuming you are not a shut-in who gets everything delivered via Amazon Prime, we've got a way you can save 20% on that 2013 Nexus 7 purchase. A new OfficeMax coupon allows you to save on a variety of items when you buy in the store, including printer ink, printing services, office supplies, eReaders, and tablets. You need that other stuff? Cool, but why not get the best Android tablet that's ever existed too?
Grab the full coupon from below just to be safe.
You have a few ways to take advantage here. If you already bought the NN7 from OfficeMax, head back and show the coupon and your receipt.
If you like the look of the Samsung Galaxy S4, but you're just a big butterfingers, maybe this is your lucky day. The Galaxy S4 Active is on sale through eBay Daily Deals, and it's quite the steal. The 16GB unlocked device is selling for $589.99.
The Galaxy S4 Active is similar to the standard GS4, but it has an LCD panel instead of AMOLED, and the casing is water resistant and more durable. The camera is only 8MP, though. Keep in mind this is the international GT-i9295, which means no US LTE. At lest you do get the Snapdragon 600 ARM chip.
Every online video service seems to be getting into the original content game these days. Hulu is no exception, and to celebrate the release of the superhero-themed animated comedy The Awesomes, they're giving away two months of free access to the premium Hulu Plus portal. That includes access to the Android app, which isn't available to free users. To redeem it, just head to this link and sign up.
This is a pretty big deal if you've been meaning to try out the less limited side of Hulu. The standard free trial period for Hulu Plus is just one week, and we've seen promotions of up to one month before, but this is the longest trial yet.
Is the new Nexus 7 not doing it for you? No wonder: you want a manly man's tablet! For men! (And also women who appreciate high resolution and fast processors.) 1080P? That's like a baby's toy! 7-inch screen? You laugh with scorn! If you're busting with all this technological machismo and a burning desire to save money, eBay's got you covered: the Nexus 10's 32GB model is currently on sale for $399.99, matching the 16GB model after a $100 discount off the retail price.
This isn't a refurbished or factory recertified model, as is often the case with eBay Daily Deals.
For many power users, 16GB just doesn't cut it any more, especially when the world's leading smartphone manufacturer insists upon using a third of that for its customized Android build. Combine that with a still-outrageous premium for those few models that of phones that include extra storage, and you've got a recipe for frustration. But the Galaxy S4 situation just got a little less rage-inducing, at least if you're a prospective Verizon customer: both Amazon Wireless and WireFly have dropped the 32GB version of the Galaxy S4 to $199.99 on-contract.
That's $100 off the original retail price, and the same price that you'll pay for a 16GB model at any Verizon store and most of its third-party retail partners.
