Now's not the best time to buy a tablet, what with all the new goodies coming out of Computex and Google due for a new round of Nexus machines in a few months. But if you're willing to settle for some slightly older models (and hoof it to a local brick and mortar store) OfficeMax is offering some great deals with a coupon code. Enter the code SAVE20 at checkout and you can take 20% off of any tablet you like, so long as you select in-store pickup.
If you are in search of a tablet that's not too big and not to small, today is your lucky day. The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 is on sale through eBay at the reasonable price of $349.99. That's about $30 less than what it's going for on Amazon. You also get $25 in Google Play credit free with purchase.
The Note 8.0 is Samsung's mid-range Android 4.1 tablet. It lacks the higher resolution of some more expensive tablets (1280x800) and only has 16GB of storage.
Samsung's Galaxy Camera is an undeniably unique device... and long-time gadget hounds will know that "unique" is often synonymous with "expensive." $500 is a lot for a point-and-shoot camera, even one that runs Android 4.1, but once again eBay's Daily Deals is offering it at a significant discount. Seller never-msrp has the white EK-GC100 model Galaxy Camera (AT&T/international 3G) for $369.95, without a contract. That's a savings of $130.05, a bit more than 25% off AT&T's retail price (not to mention a cool $100 off the last Galaxy Camera deal).
Unless you have the HTC One with BoomSound , you probably don't want to listen to music through your phone's wimpy little speakers. A Bluetooth speaker is a popular solution to the problem, but they can get pricey. The Philips Fidelio Docking Speaker for Android is priced pretty reasonably, and it's on sale through Amazon today.
It's that time again, boys and girls: Amazon is having another massive Gold Box sale on SanDisk-brand memory cards and other storage mediums. Specifically for mobile devices, the SanDisk Ultra 32GB MicroSD (SDHC) card with a free card reader is just $21.99, a savings of 69% off the retail price. The 64GB (SDXC) version of the same card is $42.99, 57% off the retail price of a hundred bucks. Both are currently in stock and qualify for Amazon Prime free shipping.

No one wants to drop $700-800 on an unlocked smartphone, but that might be your only option if you want the latest and greatest sans contract. In the case of the new Galaxy S4, eBay has been offering some compelling deals culminating in today's $599.99 offer. It's a heck of a deal!
The i9500 is the unlocked international variant of the 16GB GS4, meaning it will not work on LTE networks.
One more day, gentle readers - one more day until you can toss away the shackles of oppressive shift labor to fall into the sweet, silky lull of the weekend, and bask in glorious leisurely respite. Until then, here are some cheap apps.

If you're in the market and don't need the most cutting edge device, Amazon has a solid deal on the LG Optimus G for Sprint. The price for this handset has fallen to a single penny on a 2-year contract. This deal is open to all interested parties, whether it's for a new line of service or not. The Optimus G was previously only this cheap for new customers.
The LG Optimus G came out last fall, but it has since been overshadowed by the likes of the HTC One and Galaxy S4.
It's been more than half a year since Google officially unveiled the Nexus 10 tablet, and the Samsung-made device has yet to be dethroned as the debatable king of Android slates. If you've been waiting for a sweet deal to grab your own, you'd better hurry: the closeout specialists at Woot.com have the 32GB version on sale at Tech.Woot for just $380, a whole $120 off the Play Store retail price, and still cheaper than the 16GB version at most outlets.
