It's not often we find ourselves excited about prepaid here in the US, but if any store can get people excited about saving money, it's Walmart. And what Walmart and T-Mobile just announced is actually pretty exciting if you're looking for a way to get on the smartphone bandwagon with low monthly overhead.
For $300, Walmart will sell you a contract-free T-Mobile Galaxy S II. That in and of itself probably isn't very exciting. Read More
Google Music has become quite the app over Android's lifecycle, and there are plenty of very solid alternatives out there. But the vast majority of them offer a rather tired way of accessing your local music collection, splitting them into the same artist, album, genre and playlist sections we've been using for decades. n7player Music Player (yes, it's repetitive) has a uniquely visual way of displaying your tunes, worth checking out for any music lover who wants to shake things up.

We've got a bunch of deals for you folks today! To start things off right, refurbished Kindle Fires are currently available from eBay Daily Deals for a mere $140. The Amazon-branded slate, as you will no doubt recall, was one of the hottest selling Android-branded tablets prior to the advent of the Nexus 7. While both tablets are priced to ship, the Kindle Fire is the closest to impulse-buy we've ever seen it. Read More

are now $50 for new and existing customers.
Well, would you look at that. The new Motorola Atrix HD "4G" officially went on sale just today, and Best Buy has already chopped off fully half of its reasonable asking price. Read More
Sure, it's not the big daddy HTC One X that those smug jerks over on AT&T are enjoying, nor is it the Galaxy S III that seems to be stealing all the headlines. But 25 greenbacks for HTC's flagship mid-range device - which still beats out pretty much every phone released from a year or more back, and many since - is hard to pass up. That's the price you'll pay for a new HTC One S on T-Mobile's web store, after an eye-popping limited time discount of $175. Read More
It hasn't been too long since the Galaxy S III finally started landing on US carriers, but the price drops and deals have already started.

The device is currently available via the site for $149.99 for new and upgrading customers.

In the world of digital music stores that aren't iTunes, Amazon is a crowd favorite. With DRM-free downloads of widely-compatible MP3s and a cloud storage player that isn't the worst in the world, it's hard to not enjoy the utility of Amazon's music service. If that's not enough, though, how about some free stuff? Amazon is currently offering $3 worth of free music to anyone who asks. As long as you ask before midnight (PST), that is. Read More
Good news for folks who aren't on Sprint, but want to be! (Those exist right?) If you've been eyeballing the Evo LTE as your next phone, you couldn't get it any cheaper than you can now. Amazon Wireless is currently offering the device for $129.99 with a new two-year contract.
While it sucks a bit for current Sprint customers, upgraders can still get the device for the previously-established $149 price point, saving a bit of money over Sprint's own offerings. Read More
