In the Android Police Galaxy Note 8.0 review, we mentioned that it would be a lot better with an adjusted price. The Samsung tablet has already seen some pretty significant discounts, and today eBay has the WiFi version for $345. That's $55 bucks off the US retail price, plus free shipping and zero taxes, at least if you live somewhere that isn't New York or New Jersey. This isn't one of eBay's Daily Deals - presumably the sale will end when stock runs out.
The $25 Google Play credit that Samsung is giving away for registering the device is still active, so if you know you'll eventually spend that much on the Play Store, you could look on it as another discount (though it's applied to the full-priced Note 8.0 as well). Read More
So maybe a refurbished 16GB Nexus 7 for $150 wasn't exactly what you wanted. It could be that you want more storage. Or maybe you just want a brand new unit. If either (or both) of those is the case, then how about a brand-spanking-new 32GB N7 with the official N7 folio for $189? You'll have a difficult time finding a better deal than that, for now at least.
Here's how it works: the original price for this duo is $214 over at Buydig. Once you add that to your cart and head to the checkout, enter the coupon code 30yrsHotDeals25 for an instant $25 off. Read More
Humble Bundle With Android 6 was already a good deal before, as it offered seven games, five of which were debuting on Android for the first time. Now, three additional titles are joining the ranks. Those who have already bought the bundle will see McPixel, Waking Mars, and NightSky appear in their Humble Bundle libraries automatically. Those who haven't yet bought the bundle just have to pay over the average price paid thus far, which has yet to exceed $5. To sweeten the deal further, all ten games come with digital versions of their soundtracks.
I don't know about you, but I love the music in Aquaria. Read More
Do you find that your devices constantly need more juice while you're out and about? There's a good solution for that quandary: a portable charger. As a day-one Verizon Galaxy Nexus owner, I quickly learned how important always having one with me is, and now I never leave home without one (even though the N4 is extremely battery efficient by comparison). If you're in the market for just such a charger, Amazon has a couple of good deals going right now for EasyAcc's 10k and 12k mAh chargers, at $28 and $37 respectively.
The 10k mAh charger houses two USB ports – one for 2A output, and the other for 1A (both at 5V). Read More
Need more proof that a Nexus 7 refresh is on its way? The deals are just flowing in. Adorama has knocked $50 off the price of a new 32 GB Nexus 7, bringing the beefier version of the tablet down to just $199. This price is part of a special email promotion, and it's quite lower than the $230 price point the tablet currently goes for at the site. The Nexus 7 may no longer be the peppy little device it used to be, but it's still a good deal for the money.
If you're willing to forgo a new device for a lower price, a refurbished 32GB Nexus 7 is available on eBay for $20 less. Read More
The summer is here, and that means plenty of uses for a massive external battery pack. Whether the entire family decides to stay out at the beach for a few hours longer than your over-powered smartphone can last or a particularly nasty hurricane decides to knock out power for a few days, you could use some extra juice to fall back on. That's why now's a good time to snatch up the RAVPower 5600mAh battery pack that's currently available from Amazon for only $19.99 with a coupon code.
This battery pack provides enough juice to charge newer smartphones completely up to two times. Read More
If you're in the market for a new gadget but can't justify paying full price, refurbished hardware is a good way to get the most bang for your buck. While the word "refurbished" is somewhat tainted with a negative mental association, the odds are that you'll get a problem-free unit that will provide the same life as if you bought it new (in some cases the unit has simply been returned and can't be re-sold as "new"). If you can leap over the mental barrier and pick up a refurb, you can get a 16GB Nexus 7 for $150 from eBay right now. Read More
If you're in the market for a new phone on AT&T, the time to buy is now. The company is running a promotion that knocks 50 percent off of all smartphones – including top-tier handsets like the Galaxy S4/Active or HTC One. To make this deal even more enticing, all activation fees are also getting waived through the end of the month. That's a hell of a deal.
Here's how it works: you select the device you want, add it to the cart, and go through the normal motions of selecting your plan (or upgrading your line if you're already an AT&T customer). Read More
Carrying your mobile devices around with you is kind of what they're for, but that might mean venturing far from a power outlet. If you run out of juice, then what? Disaster. You'd probably end up devoured by wolves, or something. Lucky for you there are some killer deals on Powerbag messenger bags today.
Update: Looks like the Vau.lt deal is sold out, folks.
The 3000mAh Powerbag is on sale at Vau.lt, which previously had the backpack version for cheap. It's $49 for existing members, but if you make a new account by following this referral link, you get a $25 credit. Read More
It's a little late in the day, but there are still deals to be had. Yesterday was a killer day for app sales, but today has a nice assortment too. Let's see what we have.
