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.
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.
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.
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.
If you're on The Now Network and looking for a new phone, you'd be hard-pressed to find one better than the Galaxy S4 (with one exception, depending on your personal preference). And in keeping with their tradition of rock-bottom prices at surprisingly fast intervals, Amazon Wireless is now offering the 16GB model for just $99.99 on-contract, to both new customers and existing subscribers adding a line.
Activation is free for new Sprint customers, as is two-day shipping (even without an Amazon Prime account).
Update: The 32GB white version is on sale at Sam's Club for just $99 with free shipping, arguably an even better deal, right here. Thanks, Amy!
Far be it from me to tell you whether or not you should buy an $89 tablet, but it is my job to tell you there is such a thing - thanks to a hefty price cut from Amazon on the gray version of the ASUS MeMO Pad 7.
Update 2: Both models are now out of stock on Staples.com - bummer!
Update: The 16GB version is now out of stock on Staples.com, but the 32GB model is still going strong.
Looking to pick up that brand-new Nexus 7 on the cheap? I guess cheap is a relative term, but this Staples deal will certainly make acquiring Google's newest slate cheaper, slashing $30 off your total before taxes.
It's been a long week of smartphones, media streamers, and DROIDs. How about chilling out with some games, or something? Sound good? Cool, let's find some sales so you can at least save a little cash. Lots of good sales today!
