A soon-ending deal taking place in the Deals Store can land you a set of Active Wrap headphones for just $24, plus free shipping. The Active Wrap headset is Bluetooth powered, which makes pairing with an Android device incredibly easy.
For those who experience lackluster battery life from their current workout headsets, the Active Wrap promises 8 hours of music playback, which should be able to get you through any type of workout. The unit also features a built-in microphone, built-in noise canceling technology, and much more. (more…)
Amazon added two official Nexus 9 accessories to its line-up last night, the Keyboard Folio and “Magic” Cover. They are priced at $129 and $39, respectively, just like they are on Google Play. If you were looking to fit your pre-ordered Nexus 9 with some protection or productivity add-ons, now would be the time to get your order in. Amazon expects to “release” both by November 3.
There is always a chance that Google will ship pre-orders of the HTC Nexus 9 placed through Google Play a day early and those who purchased the new Nexus tablet will celebrate. However, at this point if you are an Amazon Prime member, Amazon is still looking like the best place to order the Nexus 9, assuming Amazon can ship out orders right on time. With free 2-day or super cheap 1-day shipping, I’m not sure you will get the device faster from any other retailer. Both of these accessories fall under Prime as well.

Motorola’s Turbo Charger is finally shipping after pre-orders first went live back in October. As you would expect, we picked up a couple to test out the supposed 8 hours of juice in 15 minutes claim that Motorola told us during the new Moto X (2nd gen) unveiling.
For those not familiar, the Turbo Charger takes advantage of Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 2.0 technology, which allows a depleted battery to grab a substantial amount of battery power within a few minutes. As you can imagine, being able to charge your device to a decent percentage in a few minutes could really come in handy, especially at the end of a long work day that is about to get longer. (more…)
A new competitor has stepped into the virtual reality ring, albeit a very surprising one. While Samsung will likely introduce the Gear VR headset with a premium price tag, Archos has introduced the VR Glasses, which take a lower price point route at just $29.99. (more…)

The Moto Hint, Motorola’s discreet little Bluetooth nub, has finally arrived for us to take for a full spin. After getting to check out the Bluetooth earbud during the press festivities for the Moto X (2nd gen) launch, we have been dying to get a real unit in house for real testing on our own. That time has come. (more…)
For a limited time, folks who have been itching for a more portable data solution can pre-order the upcoming Karma Go LTE hotspot. Set to be priced at $150, but available for $99 through a pre-order promotion, Karma Go allows users to pay for the data they use, sort of like a pay-as-you-go hotspot plan.
Users pay a set price per GB of data they consume, with the hotspot itself feeding off an available LTE connection in the area. Should LTE not be available at the moment, the system falls back to a 3G CDMA connection. For a more detailed look at where connectivity is offered, please see here. (more…)
