Two official accessories for the HTC Nexus 9 showed up on Google Play today, along with pre-orders for the device.
First, we have the Keyboard Folio, an attachable case that protects your Nexus 9 when traveling, but opens up as a full-blown keyboard. It runs $129.
Second, we have the official Cover case for the newest Nexus tablet, a case that folds in multiple ways to provide you with different viewing angles. The Cover will be available in four different colors schemes for $39.99. (more…)

Today through October 20, Motorola is hosting a deal on the Moto X (2nd gen) for Verizon that will save you $50 on a new 2-year contract. At $49.99, you can custom make the new Moto X cheaper than any other model. Full Moto Maker customizations are available as well at no charge, outside of the Natural and Leather backs that each carry a $25 premium.
