Unless you've been living under a rock, you might have heard a thing or two about Samsung's latest flagship smartphones, the Galaxy S9 and S9+. The South Korean tech giant unveiled its iterative new devices at a swanky event during MWC 2018 in Barcelona a few weeks ago, and with pre-orders already shipping (some with the wrong SIMs), the phones are available to buy in stores across 70 countries from today.
Target's Cartwheel app serves as a way for the company to offer discounts and get you into its stores. Today you can get the LG G Watch for 50% off. Since the retailer is selling the smartwatch for $160, that brings the price down to $80.
This offer is only valid in stores, as Target isn't even selling the G Watch online. You must sign up to redeem the coupon and then scan the Cartwheel barcode at the register. The offer expires May 9th, but it's only valid while supplies last.
Since there's a good chance many of you have never heard of Target's Cartwheel app, I'll include a link below.
The Galaxy S5 has been making the rounds since its global launch a week ago. It's already available at the major US carriers, and now it's trickling down to the smaller options out there. Today the device has come to MetroPCS, a prepaid service owned by T-Mobile, where it's available for $649 without an annual contract. The site shows the phone as currently available in-stores, but the online inventory should appear at some point.
MetroPCS plans start at $40 a month for 500MB of 4G LTE data, with $50 bumping that up to 2.5GB. $60 provides unlimited. Phones will run on T-Mobile's network, so if coverage is good in your area, this is one of the more affordable ways, long-term, to own a Galaxy S5.
Lenovo, the company best known for making some pretty sweet laptops and violating the seventh commandment, has released the IdeaTab A2109 at Best Buy. This 9" slate packs a 1.2GHz Tegra 3 processor, a 1280x800 display, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. At $300, this tablet is just barely more expensive than the comparable 16GB Nexus 7. For your extra $50 you not only get a bigger screen, but a rear facing camera and HDMI output. Not bad.
The A2109 ships with Ice Cream Sandwich on board. No word yet on if a Jelly Bean update is in the works.
The wait is nearly over! Just a few days after AT&T announced the Galaxy S III would be available in stores soon, Verizon enters the fray with its own announcement. The much sought-after device will be available in Verizon stores starting July 10th. So, if you've been holding off on pre-ordering until you see it for yourself, your wait will be over in a week.
Both the 16GB and 32GB models will be available for $199 and $249 respectively. The device will also be available online for same-day ordering. Currently the device is available for pre-order only, indicating that the device will ship by July 11th, so you might get it a bit earlier if you don't pre-order, oddly enough.
The wait is nearly over for the Galaxy S III if you're on AT&T. The big blue ball has just announced that Samsung's newest flagship will be available for same-day purchases starting July 6th in all of its stores nationwide. The company isn't sharing specifics on whether that will include only the blue and white versions of the phone, or if we'll also see AT&T's exclusive red version of the device. If we had to bet on it, we'd say the red version will still be a little way's off.
The device will also be available for overnight shipping on July 6th, so if you're keen to order online, you'll be covered as well.
