White and black. Black and white. Every new flagship phone seems to offer these choices before anything else - you never get, for example, a phone launching exclusively in neon green. Today Samsung is officially expanding its offering of Galaxy Note 3 colors to bring the line a little bit of high-class luster. You'll soon be able to purchase the Note 3 in Rose Gold White, Rose Gold Black, and Merlot Red colors.
Amazon isn't letting Google run away with the bargain-priced tablet market just yet. It's offering $50 discounts on the Kindle Fire HD and Fire HDX 7 for Cyber Monday. That means you've got to jump on it soon to secure the deal.
The Fire HD is the tweaked version of last year's Fire with a dual-core 1.5GHz ARM chip and a 1280x800 resolution LCD. The 16GB version of this device usually sells for $169, but today it's $119.
DP Review, one of the go-to sources for reviews, guides, discussions, and even periodic photo challenges related to all types of photo gear, recently published their own exhaustive review of the Nexus 5 on DP Review Connect, the mobile-centric arm of the site.
The review covers everything you could possibly want to read about the Nexus 5's camera, digging deep into its features and flaws (there are many in both columns), why we don't exactly have the great photo experience many expected, and providing tons of sample images in all scenarios.
Put this one in the "deal alert with reservations" basket, but if you're really keen on getting a Nexus 5 at a potentially steep discount (and don't mind waiting for it), you may want to take advantage of Dailysteals' current eBay deal for the handset.
They're selling 32GB Nexus 5s - in white or black - for just $394 shipped, and with sales tax applied only in New York and New Jersey.
If you're the owner of an unlocked US HTC One or HTC One Developer Edition, get ready for some KitKat: HTC's US Twitter account just let slip the news that an Android 4.4 OTA update is headed your way starting today.

While the rollout will probably be staggered in groups over the coming days, this is yet another incredibly quick OEM turnaround on Android 4.4.
Looking for a great Android tablet on the cheap? Skip the knockoffs and the lines and buy yourself a factory-refurbished 2013 Nexus 7, just $170 shipped - you can get it on eBay here. This is a solid $20 cheaper than it was on eBay Daily Deals just yesterday, and a full $60 less than you'd pay Google for it, though if you want to spend $30 more you can also get one brand-new on Amazon.
Just in case you didn't see this in our enormous Black Friday deal roundup, we thought the discount on NVIDIA's SHIELD gaming device was worth highlighting all on its own. Today you can score the SHIELD for just $250, $50 off its retail price, plus some free goodies that shift based on which retailer you buy from.
The official NVIDIA SHIELD store has the device for an even $249, plus a free SHIELD T-shirt, a free first-party NVIDIA case ($40 on NVIDIA's store), and free standard shipping.
Maybe the black slabs of glass and Kevlar that are Verizon's 2013 DROID lineup aren't doing it for you. If that's the case (and you haven't already bought a customized Moto X), you can now pick up either the svelte DROID Ultra or the pint-sized DROID Mini in shades of white. The capacious DROID Maxx, surprisingly, is still only offered in black.
Unlike some of the early leaks of the white Ultra model, this one seems to be white all over, as opposed to white on the glass panel with a black body.
The Chromecast is already a pretty fantastic deal at $35, but less is always more when it comes to price. Both Best Buy and Amazon are offering the streaming dongle for $29.99. You still get the $6 credit for Google Play movie rentals from either retailer, so you won't be wanting for something to watch when you plug it in.
Google has been pushing the Chromecast hard as of late, adding a special section for Chromecast to the on-device Google Play Store to highlight the apps that can take advantage of it.
