As much as we've talked about portable chargers, we've yet to come across one that I would call affordable (excluding the various deals we've found, of course). Satechi just changed all that, though; it released a 10k mAh power pack for $50. Fifty dollars! Considering I've reviewed portable chargers with half that capacity for nearly double the cost, I woudl say this one is a good deal right out of the gate. Read More

Initially, the selection included 57 different Android games - an impressive feat, no doubt. But what could be better? Read More

The Motorola lapdock for the original Atrix 4G is being blown out of the AT&T store starting today for $250 off its $300 list price. Yup, just $50 after an instant discount gets you a laptop shell with a 36Wh battery inside.
Plug your Atrix into it, and the dead frame comes alive with a desktop-grade Webtop experience (it's really a custom, though severely cut down, Linux flavor), including desktop Firefox and virtual access to your phone's screen and data while docked. Read More

Both Amazon Wireless and Wirefly have a good deal going on the just released EVO Design 4G by HTC: $50. Update: It's still $50 at Wirefly, but Amazon Wireless just dropped the price to $30. Of course, this requires a new two-year contract, so all current Sprintsters will be stuck paying $80, which still saves about $20 over the in-store price.
Sony Ericsson's Xperia Play, also known as the Playstation Phone, will be hitting AT&T's HSPA+ network on September 18th for a mere $50, finally allowing gamers rocking Ma Bell to let go some of that envy towards VZW. This portable gaming/smartphone hybrid sports a 4-inch screen, 1GHz processor, 512MB RAM, 5MP rear shooter, and Android 2.3 out of the box; what really makes this device unique, though, it its slide-out Playstation gamepad and exclusive gaming content.

Last week, Amazon Wireless had a deal going for the HTC EVO 3D where newcomers to the Now Network could score the device for $99. Not to be outdone, Wirefly has fired back with an even better deal: if you sign a new agreement with Sprint, you can get the EVO 3D for $50. Also unlike Amazon Wireless' deal, current Sprint customers will only have to drop $100 with a contract renewal, saving around half of the retail cost. Read More
The second part of the "Deal Alert" for this morning is the LG Revolution.

The Revolution is rocking some pretty decent specs:
- 4.3 Inch 480*800 display
- 1GHz Snapdragon processor
- 16GB built-in storage
- 5MP rear camera, 1.3MP front
- Android 2.2
Aside from the ridiculously low price, this phone also includes a $25 Android Market card, saving you even more money. Read More
