NVIDIA has had some solid Black Friday deals in past years, and this one is no different. Later this week, you'll be able to get $50 off the price of the SHIELD Android TV, plus a free remote worth $50. The catch? The first round of deals is only available if you brave the crowds. Read More
Xiaomi may not be selling any of its phones or tablets in the west just yet, but the company's announcements have been making news here regardless, and today's new Xiaomi devices prove no different. With jaw-dropping prices and reasonably good specifications, Xiaomi's latest products are still going to have you, or at least your wallet, a bit envious.
The big reveal is the Redmi Note 3, Xiaomi's new large(-ish) display offering. With a 5.5" 1080p (LCD, presumably) screen, 2 or 3GB of RAM, MediaTek Helio X10 octacore processor, and 16 or 32GB of storage, it sits firmly in the high end of the mid-range phone kingdom. Read More
If you're in Australia, a Telstra customer, and own a Nexus 6P, today is a good day for you. As we reported earlier, the Nexus 6P has been suffering from widespread issues connecting to Telstra's LTE network. It would appear that the OTA to fix this is now rolling out.
The OTA weighs in at 71 MB and will update you to build MMB29N. There's no indication whether or not there are additional bugfixes included in this build, but we'll probably find out soon enough once the changes get pushed to AOSP. If you're the impatient type, you can download the ZIP file below and flash it manually in stock recovery. Read More
We've covered Black Friday deals from Sprint and Verizon already, and they've been pretty predictable. T-Mobile, though, is taking a different approach. For the next three months, the carrier is giving all of its postpaid Simple Choice customers unlimited LTE, active right now. Read More
The price on SanDisk's largest microSD card just keeps dropping like a rock. I mean, like... a rock with another heavier rock tied to it or something. After hitting $135 about a week ago, the 200GB microSD card is now $99.99 on Amazon. That's a lot of storage. Read More
The UE MEGABOOM speaker doesn't just go boom. It goes megaboom. That explosion you hear is the sound of a cylindrical Bluetooth speaker pumping music in all directions. It's not on your desk yet, but you can hear it already, and right now you can make it happen for $50 less than usual. Read More
CyanogenMod has just announced the first nightly builds of CyanogenMod 13 (CM13) running Android Marshmallow 6.0, which will begin rolling out to a handful of select devices. Nightly builds are not as bug-free as snapshot releases, but they are typically still reliable enough that many users don't mind facing a few issues here and there in order to stay on the bleeding edge.
The release of CM13 follows the first snapshot builds of CM12.1 from early September, with CyanogenMod expecting to have a stable version of CM13 sometime in January. Users already running snapshots of CM12.1 are advised to wait until then to upgrade to CM13 unless they are willing to accept the tradeoff in quality. Read More
The Galaxy View is a device only Samsung would make. Not because it's a bad idea necessarily, but because it's a really niche product that no other OEMs really have a hope of pulling off. It turns out that maybe even Samsung is going to have trouble selling a huge 18.4-inch tablet with a built-in handle. After 2 weeks on virtual shelves, The Galaxy View is getting a $100 price drop.

Square's square readers go into a phone or tablet's headphone jack and let the device accept payments from a credit card. Its original model, anyway. The company has a new one that's rolling out to over 100 small business owners across the US starting today. Read More
