Deal Alert: The Original Galaxy Tab S 10.5 (Verizon LTE Version) Is On eBay For $360, Ships Internationally

Samsung's top-end tablets tend to be much more expensive than their contemporaries, and even more so if you spring for a mobile radio. Today (and only today!) you can grab the original Galaxy Tab S 10.5, with a 16:10 Super AMOLED screen and a Verizon LTE radio, for just $359.99 on eBay. That's an incredible $500 and change off of the original retail price, and about $100 off of the going rate for the year-old tablet. This is a new item in the white-and-gold color, but hurry - according to the eBay listing, this deal will be gone in about 12 hours (approximately 12 PM Eastern US time on Monday).

Huawei's Nexus Phone Will Be The First Nexus Device To Offer Up To 128GB Of Storage

It took years (and years and years), but manufacturers are finally starting to loosen their grip on the idea that it's OK for flagship phones to come with just 16GB of storage. Last year's Nexus 6 came in 32GB and 64GB flavors, and high-end phones released this year tend to start at 32GB. According to multiple trusted Android Police sources, the Huawei Nexus phone that's been so prominently leaked in the last few weeks will be available in 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB variants.

That would make the Huawei Nexus the first Google developer device to be offered at such a high capacity.

[Deal Alert] Best Buy Offers The HTC Re Camera With A Free Bar Mount for $100 ($120 Off)

It's been almost a year since HTC announced its Re sports-focused camera, and there's no indication that the company intends to continue the product line with another entry. So maybe the smartphone maker isn't interested in going toe-to-toe with GoPro, but that means that you can get some great deals on a product that's less popular than its competitors. Today Best Buy is offering a bundle deal that includes both the camera and a bar mount (ideal for cyclists) for $99.99.

That's half off of the retail price of the camera with a $20 bonus for the mount, which brings the total discount to $120.

Samsung's S Health App Updated To Support Non-Samsung Devices

Fitness tracker apps are a dime a dozen in the Play Store, but few are as visible as S Health. This app has tens of millions of installs because it comes bundled on all newer Samsung phones, and now it's available to everyone else. The latest update expands support to just about any device.

Google Fit Website Gets A Big Material Design Update

Did you visit Google Fit's website back when the service first launched? It was a bare bones affair. The screen was mostly gray, and you were presented with the same information you saw inside the app, only tucked away on the left side of the screen. There really wasn't much reason to pay it any attention, so we didn't.

[Rumor] The Second-Generation Chromecast Is Coming On September 29th With Spotify Support, Better WiFi, And "Fast Play" In Tow

It's been more than two years since the Chromecast was first announced and released. What started as a cheap gadget with a closed ecosystem has turned into an open platform that allows you to throw media from almost any app, service, and device to a bigger screen near you. Want to cast everything you're doing right now on your phone? Sure. How about those photos you took during the last holiday? Yes. And that funny cat YouTube video, your partner would sure love that? Aha. Some background music with a photo slideshow while you're working in the kitchen? Why not. That's the reason I bought a "dumb" TV and a Chromecast — I couldn't understand why I'd have to pay hundreds of dollars for some low-grade SmartTV system when I had all the possibilities available to me through an independent $35 dongle.

[Update: Huawei Responds] It Very Much Looks Like The Huawei Watch Has A Speaker Inside It, But It Doesn't Do Anything (Yet)

Take a look at the image above. While it lacks some context, you may recognize the circular shape of that hunk of plastic and pogo pins as the rear cover of a smartwatch. A Huawei Watch, to be precise. And what's front-and-center in focus? Well, initially it just looks like... a big hunk of metal. Upon taking apart the watch, I immediately noticed it was highly magnetic and had been glued down to an area of the watch that corresponds with an unexplained opening on the case pictured below.
