[Deal Alert] Get A New Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 32GB For $449.99 ($150 Off) On eBay

Most of the deals we post from eBay are for refurbished devices. It's a great way to save money on a new gadget, but some people are understandably turned off at the idea of buying something that's been used before, no matter how gently or infrequently. This deal is for them: a brand new Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 can be had from Newegg's official eBay page for $449.99. That's a full $300 off of the original retail price from back in March, and $150 off of the current price on Amazon.

Right now Amazon is giving away a bunch of paid apps and music via its Appstore and Amazon Music portals, compliments of Big Red. You can add them to your Amazon library whether or not you use Verizon for home or wireless services.

AT&T Gets Sentimental, Releases OTA Update For The Galaxy S II Skyrocket

The Galaxy S II Skyrocket, AT&T's first LTE phone, was released a little over three years ago. During its lifetime, it had pretty good support from Samsung regarding Android version updates. It launched with Gingerbread, and got subsequent bumps to Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean 4.1. That OTA to Jelly Bean was the last time the phone saw any kind of software update, and that was 19 months ago. With that in mind, AT&T apparently can't let its first LTE love go because, out of nowhere, Samsung has announced a new software update for the aging device.

Google Brings Free Play Store Apps To Cuba For The Few People Who Can Use Them

We're generally happy to report when Google expands Play Store availability to a new region, whether it's access to books, movies, or apps. In this particular case, the news tastes a little bitter. Google has opened up the Play Store to Cuba, offering residents a chance to download free apps. It's just too bad most won't be able to step inside and shop.

The thing is, the Internet is heavily censored through the island.

[Fire Sale] Amazon Admits Defeat, Now Offering Unlocked 32GB Fire Phone For $199 With No Contract

Amazon was forced to concede that its much-anticipated Fire Phone was not a big seller when AT&T dropped the price mere weeks after it was released. When the retailer's quarterly results were announced, we learned the scale of the screw up. Now Amazon is washing its hands of the whole mess. It's unloading unsold 32GB Fire Phones unlocked for $199 off-contract. The off-contract price at launch was $650 and AT&T charged $199 with a 2-year agreement.

Seven Android Apps Join The Chrome-Compatible Lineup

Since Google I/O we've been waiting anxiously to see which apps would be among the first to gain compatibility with Chrome OS. As Sundar Pichai explained at this summer's conference, Google plans to get Android apps running natively on the company's desktop OS, using App Runtime for Chrome.

Google is carefully curating the experience, however, working with select developers to make apps available through Chrome's web store. In September, Duolingo, Evernote, Vine, and Sight Words came to Chrome, and today Google announced a lineup of seven new apps, including Cookpad, Couchsurfing, Overdrive, and four others.

For $129, you can have the case in your hands early next week, most likely, and then you'll be typing away. The Keyboard Folio case has a full smart cover-style folding system and, while it is quite bulky, will probably be the only case/keyboard combo for the Nexus 9 available.
