If you purchase a Samsung phone in the near future, you're going to have yet another option for listening to music. However, unlike most of the other streaming services, the newly announced Milk Music is free and has no ads. The Milk Music app is live in Google Play and it's compatible with the Galaxy S3, Galaxy S4, Note 2, Note 3,, S4 Active, S4 Mini, and Mega at this time.
The very first thing that college sports fans did when the Moto Maker customization tool came out was make a phone in the colors of their alma mater. Now that's a little easier thanks to Motorola's College Collection. To facilitate better collegiate customization, the College Collection includes nine new back colors and three new accent colors (which don't seem to be available on the standard Moto Maker site). If that's not enough for you, the customized phones also include a clear case with your school logo.
The Nexus 7 2013 is already one of the best tablet deals around, but you can never have too much money. To that end, you might want to know that Newegg currently has both the 16GB and 32GB WiFi models on sale, at least for refurbished options. The 16GB version is $193.99, a bit less than $50 off the retail price, and the 32GB version is $244.99, $25 off of the new model.
Nvidia wanted to wow us when it unveiled the Shield over a year ago at CES 2013, so naturally it pre-announced a bunch of games for the device. One of the titles mentioned at that event has only now arrived on Android. Rochard is a sci-fi platformer that was originally developed for the PlayStation Network and Steam, but now it's in the Play Store for $6.99.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 typically costs you roughly $500, but Walmart's currently willing to part with one online for around $400 instead. Sure, there's a catch. It's refurbished. But if that doesn't bother you, you can get a 16GB version for $399.99. The 32GB option is going for just $30 more. Both are available in black and white.
To make this deal even better, you can get $21.50 off the 32GB option if you pay using a Discover card.
LG has a new commercial for the G Flex online, and it is exceptionally bizarre – and not in a good way. In the ad, a man receives a new G Flex, but upon opening the box his hand is transformed into a horrifying living phone with a mouth and an ear. He doesn't seem appropriately concerned about this.
We've already had one pretty good deal on a Samsung Note tablet today, but if you'd like something with a little more oomph, Amazon is offering some significant discounts on a newer model. The Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition is now $499.99 for the 16GB model and $529.99 for the 32GB model on Amazon's main listing. That's a savings of $50 and $70, respectively.
Now, that's still really freakin' expensive as Android tablets go, but since Samsung doesn't seem to be letting go of its high and mighty pricing any time soon, this is probably the best deal you'll get on a new version of this particular model.
A few days ago the Ouya folks announced the Ouya Everywhere initiative and the company's intention to expand the platform beyond the one inspirational-but-somewhat-disappointing Android-powered gaming console it's put out so far. Now it's announcing its first partner, Mad Catz, the developer of the less-inspirational-but-still-disappointing M.O.J.O system. To coincide with the news, Mat Catz is dropping the price of their product down fifty bucks to $199.99.
The M.O.J.O. comes with stock Android out of the box, and there is nothing on the software side that tweaks the majority of mobile titles for hardware controls.
The newer Samsung tablets like the Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 might have better technical hardware than the year-old Note 8.0, but they've also got some sky-high prices. If you want a good deal on a mid-size tablet with a stylus and digitizer, Groupon has a refurbished model of the Galaxy Note 8.0 for just $229.99. The deal includes free shipping, but it's only available for another five days and change.
Customers who want Android tablets on Verizon's admittedly excellent LTE network tend to have only a few options, but there are two more this morning. Flagships from both LG and Samsung, the G Pad 8.3 and Galaxy Note Pro (or NotePRO) 12.2, are now available as branded Verizon devices. You can pick both of them up on the carrier website, and they should be available at retail stores either today or soon after.
