If you can't wait to get your hands on Google's latest mid-range smartphone, have we got some good news for you. Just as with last year's model, the Pixel 5a seems to be arriving on customers' doorsteps earlier than expected, and with two days to go until its official release date, you could find yourself among one of the lucky chosen ones.
Demand for Samsung's new folding phones is understandably quite high, and it looks like in some cases that demand may be exceeding availability. Before Samsung's event had even ended, some versions of the Z Fold3 were already selling out at Samsung's site for pre-order. And while we've seen more stock appear to open up, rapidly changing availability suggests that you'd better act fast if you want to secure your order.
Wyze has made a name for itself by selling dirt-cheap stuff that works surprisingly well, notably security cameras, lightbulbs, and other smarthome gadgets. It's recently expanded into more mobile-adjacent tech, including a full-sized set of noise-canceling headphones. The next logical step for the company is in the exploding segment of true wireless earbuds, and so here we are: the Wyze Buds Pro.
Xiaomi makes some great gear for budget-minded users, but finding it in the western hemisphere can sometimes be a problem. It looks like that won't be an issue for the company's latest fitness tracker. The Mi Smart Band 6, announced precisely one month ago, now has its own listing on Amazon's US store. It's a few cents shy of $60, and it's shipping out on May 18th.
Amazon's tablets aren't meant to set the world on Fire, but they're probably some of the most popular on the planet thanks to low price tags and integration with the company's retail empire. It's been about a year and a half since the 10-inch version got an upgrade, but today Amazon is taking pre-orders for the new Fire HD 10 and Fire HD 10 Plus.
Amazon introduced its self-branded true wireless earbuds, the Echo Buds, a year and a half ago. The big deal at the time was its direct integration with Alexa, but for the company's second go-round, they're piling on the extra features to make the headphones more competitive in a matured true wireless market. The new model is up for pre-order on Amazon today, delivered by May 13th.
Though some units shipped early, formal availability for Samsung's new Galaxy S21 series starts today. That means "pre-order" is now "buy" at most retailers, and many of the early pre-order credit promotions are gone. However, trade-in values at Samsung's store remain pretty great, and you can still get $50-100 (or more) in store credit, plus a SmartTag.
The Samsung Galaxy S21 series will officially be available starting January 29, but some pre-orders have already shipped and are slated to arrive early — which shouldn't be a surprise if you've ever pre-ordered a smartphone. If you put down money towards the S21, be sure to check your mail and see if you're in for the early treat.
