[Deal Alert] Get $100 Off A Galaxy Tab S At Best Buy By Trading In Any Old, Working Tablet ($50 Coupon + $50 Gift Card)

It's no secret that we think the Galaxy Tab S series are the best tablets you can buy right now. They're also not cheap - Samsung's priced its iPad competitors at iPad prices, and that means shelling out at least a cool $400 if you want to get in on that Super AMOLED goodness. Best Buy, though, is willing to give you a whole Benjamin off the MSRP if you give them a little trade-in action, though.

Sony Steps Up To The Plate, Now Pushing 4.4.4 To The Xperia Z1, Z1 Compact, And Z Ultra In Europe

Outside of Google, it looks like Sony is the first company to start pushing 4.4.4 to its devices, beginning with the Z1, Z1 Compact, and Z Ultra. While it's only a very minor update, it still says something about Sony's drive to push timely updates that it's the first to get 4.4.4 out the door to consumer devices.

It Looks Like A Yellow Nexus 5 Is Coming To The Play Store [Update]

Should you decide to swing by the main Android website (which there is very little reason to do), you might notice something odd in the section describing the Nexus 5. It comes in "black, white, red, and yellow." Oh, really now?

Update: Google seems to have pulled down the mention of "yellow" and still hasn't responded. So, that's maybe a little suspicious. Or maybe it was just a mistake. Time will tell.

[Deal Alert] Grab A Refurbished Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 32GB For $450 ($200 Off) With Free Shipping

The biggest reason to turn down Samsung's Pro line of tablets is easily the exorbitant pricing. $750 for a tablet? Seriously, Sammy? Unsurprisingly, the various models have quickly fallen to some dramatic discounts, none more so than the top-of-the-line Galaxy Note Pro 12.2. BuyDig's eBay seller account has a refurbished 32GB model going for $449.99. That's $200 off the Amazon price (and technically $300 off retail), and $50 cheaper than we saw earlier this month

As with most of these promoted eBay deals, standard shipping is free, at least if you live in the United States.

Google's Head Of Android Engineering Says That The Nexus Line Isn't Going Anywhere

Earlier this year, both Evan 'Evleaks' Blass and The Information's Amir Efrati claimed that the upcoming Android Silver program would replace the Nexus line of developer phones. Blass went so far as to say, "There is no Nexus 6. Farewell, Nexus." Both of those reports would seem to be contradicted by our own exclusive reveal of the HTC Volantis, a new Nexus tablet. Now we've got even more claims that the Nexus hardware line isn't going anywhere soon, this time right from the proverbial horse's mouth.

HP Slate 7 Extreme Finally Getting Android 4.4.2, Like Four Months After EVGA's Tegra Note 7

NVIDIA had the 4.4.2 update ready to roll out to Tegra Note 7 devices over four months ago, which is when it rolled out to the EVGA Tegra Note 7 (among others). The HP Slate 7 Extreme – which is virtually identical to other TN7s – has been waiting ever since. And finally, today, that same update started rolling out.

[I/O 2014] Google's ATAP Shows Off A Semi-Working Ara Prototype, Plus Prizes And Boards For Aspiring Developers

Project Ara is still going strong, and Google demonstrated it at I/O at the ATAP presentation. Project Ara Technical Lead Paul Eremenko talks up the modular phone platform in the video below (starting at around 23:30), bringing the concept beyond simple phone component upgrades. "What if a phone could see in the dark? What if a phone could test if water is clean?" The collaborative Ara team wants the hardware to be just as flexible as the larger Android ecosystem.

Chromecast Will Use Ultrasonic Sound For Location-Based Casting On Separate Networks

Just yesterday Google announced that it would soon allow users to send video and other entertainment items to a nearby Chromecast even when they're not connected to the same WiFi network, with the backend relying on location data for verification. It looks like there's some even more interesting technology going on behind the scenes. GigaOm reports that the upcoming update will allow Chromecast and Android devices to authenticate each other using ultrasonic waves.
