Last week, Amazon started a promotion to celebrate the Appstore's first birthday. One week and 28 apps later, that sale is coming to a close - but you still have a chance to grab some decent apps at a discounted price.

Here's a look at all of the deals Amazon is currently offering as part of this promotion:

Samsung-GT-i9300_1

I hate the vast majority of rumors. About the only time I give a them any real consideration is when they're coming from a source that's highly reliable and they strike me as reasonable. It's for this reason I've stayed clear of the relative boatload of Galaxy S III rumors that we've been hearing for about a week now - first a potential render leaked (though we didn't like the looks of it).

htc-vivid

Last week, AT&T made the Ice Cream Sandwich update available for the HTC Vivid, but rather than pushing it to devices over-the-air, the company let it sit and incubate, denying its availability.

Those with deeper knowledge of phone commands figured out how to get the Vivid to ask the update servers for this OTA (*#*#682#*#* - 682 stands for OTA, get it?) and successfully updated, but most Vivid owners to this day probably have no idea this method even exists.

So, there's this phone on AT&T called the LG Thrill 4G.  While it's virtually identical to the Optimus 3D in nearly every way, it has been running Android 2.2 since release, whereas its twin brother has been on Android 2.3 for four months now. Finally, though, Thrill 4G owners are getting treated to a taste of Gingerbread, albeit with one last hurdle to jump through.

Instead of rolling the update OTA (over-the-air), this one requires the LG Mobile Support tool.

Good news for anyone who bought one of the recent Sony Android tablets - namely the Tablet P and Tablet S - the update to Android 4.0 should be coming your way next month. The update will not only bring all of the benefits that ICS has to offer, but also a feature that will allow Tablet users to access and watch programs they've recorded on their compatible Sony Blu-Ray recorder.

MOD-28604_Acer_Iconia_Tab_A510_black_bothfrontandback

Just as quickly as Acer entered into the dual-core tablet market with the most affordable fully-featured tablet at the time, it now enters the quad-core market in the same fashion. The Tegra 3-sporting Iconia Tab A510 will be the first real competition to the beastly Transformer Prime in the Android tablet realm, and rightfully so -- it's packing comparable specs while still managing to hit a lower price-point.

  • 10.1-inch 1,280x800 display
  • Quad-Core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 32GB built-in storage with microSD Card slot
  • 5MP Rear shooter, 1MP front-facing camera
  • 9,800mAh battery for 12 hours of continuous video playback
  • Android 4.0 with Acer Ring

The A510 not only packs some of the latest hardware to hit the scene, along with the newest version of Android, but it also offers up Acer's Ring interface - a customizable launcher that allows for quick access to user-defined shortcuts and bookmarks, as well as a handy screenshot tool.

panasonic eluga
Last Updated: January 21st, 2013

Panasonic is set to enter the high-end smartphone market in Europe and Japan in the coming weeks with the waterproof and dustproof Eluga.

We first saw the Eluga at Mobile World Congress last month, and although it looks like a great phone on paper, with a dual-core CPU and qHD display, it disappointed us when we went hands-on. Nevertheless, this is still big news for the European market, where Panasonic isn't known as a smartphone brand at all.

If you didn't quite make it to Daily Steals' awesome deal a couple of days ago and still want to get your hands on an unlocked Galaxy Nexus at a crazy discount, Negri Electronics has you covered.

The online electronics dealer is offering the 16GB unlocked Galaxy Nexus for just $459.99. It's worth noting though, that the units being sold by Negri have NTT Docomo branding (meaning a teeny tiny logo near the bottom of the backplate).

If you've been eyeing Samsung's Galaxy Note but don't want to pay full price, 1SaleADay may be able to help. 1SaleADay has listed the Unlocked, 16GB variety of the Galaxy Note on eBay for just $549.99 (with free shipping). That's a cool $50 less than the last deal we saw on the Note.

For those that may not be familiar with Sammy's first ever "phablet," the Note, which promises "the best of a phone and a tablet," has some pretty sweet specs (including its luxuriously enormous display):

  • 5.3" Super AMOLED display
  • Android 2.3 Gingerbread (with ICS reportedly on the way in Q2)
  • S Pen Stylus
  • 16GB Internal Storage (with microSD slot)
  • 8MP Rear camera / 2MP front-facing shooter
  • 1GB RAM
  • 1.4GHz dual-core processor
  • 2500mAh Battery

Sound good?

After tons of leaks (mostly ridiculous), we're finally starting to hear some concrete information about the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S III, this time directly from the source: Samsung China CEO Kim Young-ha.

In a recent interview, Young-ha stated that Samsung is aiming to boost sales by 40% in China by launching an aggressive marking campaign for products such as TVs, laptops, home appliances, and, our favorite, smartphones. Since the Galaxy Note is already wildly popular in the Chinese market, Young-ha said Samsung is "considering rescheduling the rollout of the Galaxy S III from May to April," which makes this the first confirmation that we've heard from Samsung regarding any sort of potential GSIII launch timeframe.
