Our friends at Dead Zebra created two new Android collectibles – yes, outside of the Series 04 box they just released – that would look brilliant on your X-mas tree. Pictured above and below (in tree), you’ll see both a red and blue Android mini called “Ornamental” that is colored in matte metallic with silver glitter. In the box, you’ll also find an ornament topper insert and a small metal hook to attach these to tree limbs just like the rest of your ornaments. (more…)
Cyber Monday, Black Friday, the Moto X fiasco, and the rest of the holiday weekend may be over, but deals continue to flow in since the holiday shopping season is only now getting under way. For those with a phone that can utilize wireless charging (Nexus 5, DROID MAXX, LG G2 on Verizon, etc.) yet haven’t purchased a wireless charger because most are overpriced, feel free to check out today’s deal through Daily Steals.
They are currently selling the Incipio GHOST 100 wireless charger that was made specifically for the new DROID family of phones at 50% off or $20. Well, it’s “DROID” branded anyway. The good news is that it’s Qi-enabled, so it should work with almost any phone that has wireless charging capabilities. It should work with all of the phones I mentioned above, along with the Galaxy S4 (with a wireless charging back), DROID DNA, DROID Mini, and others.
Tylt, an accessory company largely know for its Tylt Vu wireless charger, is hosting a site-wide 50% off sale for Cyber Monday. The Tylt Vu is more than likely the accessory you’ll want to pick up (especially the new Nexus 5 owners in the building), thanks to its beautiful soft touch finish, variety of vibrant colors, and excellent viewing angle during charges, however, the rest of their accessories are of the highest quality too.

Back in March, we gave you a not-so-pleasant update on a funded IndieGogo campaign called Misfit Shine, a wearable activity tracker (like a Fitbit) that is easily one of the most elegant designs you’ll see in the industry. Their team announced at the time that they had dropped Android support, even though they had initially said it would be a part of the product’s launch. As a well-funded project at over $800,000 with thousands of backers, this wasn’t exactly the start that a potential Android userbase was looking for.
As months have gone by with iOS-only apps available, we had almost forgotten about the Misfit Shine altogether. And then out of no where this past week, they announced that Shine for Android was “coming soon.” They haven’t exactly given a firm date, but we do know that it’ll support Android 4.3 devices with Bluetooth 4.0.

Pebble, what can only be described as the most successful smartwatch to date, is now available through Amazon. Up until this week, Pebble was only available directly through Pebble’s site or through select retailers like Best Buy. This move, as you can imagine, is huge for the wearable startup. At $149.99 through the online retail giant, though, you aren’t seeing a deal – that’s the exact same price that Pebble is listed at everywhere else. (more…)
Still haven’t decided whether or not you want to join the dongle clan? How about a Black Friday weekend deal on the Chromecast that drops the device’s price to $29.99? Normally listed at $35 almost everywhere, you are looking at a $5 saving, which isn’t exactly some unbeatable deal, but Google is also tossing in a $6 Google Play credit with the purchase. (more…)
Motorola surprised us somewhat yesterday when they announced that their ultra-affordable phone, the Moto G, was now available in the U.S. as a GSM phone. Without a contract at $179 for the 8GB model, and $199 for the 16GB model, this might be the best deal in the mobile industry. Sure, the phone doesn’t have LTE, but most HSPA+ networks are plenty fast these days, just ask Nexus 4 owners how they’ve held up over the last year. (more…)
As you have probably realized over the last couple of years, we’re big fans of Android collectibles. Each time the folks at Dead Zebra post up a new series or limited edition Bugdroid, we’re all over it. Like earlier this week, when “the vault” opened, giving us a second stab at some of the rarest of the limited runs. Or coming soon, when they release Series 04. (more…)
