The Nexus 9 in all sizes and colors (sans Sand because it still doesn’t exist) is $50 off right now at Amazon. That translates to $349 and $429 for the 16GB and 32GB models, respectively, which is a solid price on a tablet that both Tim and I really enjoy. In fact, in our Nexus 9 review, Tim called it a “superb tablet,” something that can’t be said about most Android tablets.
As a recap, the Nexus 9 runs Android 5.0 “Lollipop” and sports a NVIDIA Tegra K1 64-bit processor, 2GB RAM, 8.9-inch 4:3 display (2048×1536), 8MP rear camera, and a 6,700mAh battery. It’s made of soft touch plastic that will remind you of the Nexus 5, but then classes it up with a metal banding around the outside of its body. Again, this (or the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet) is the Android tablet to have.
Tough to tell how long this deal will last, but you may want to jump on it before long. Oh, and the device qualifies for Prime shipping.

Now that Google has stopped selling (and listing) the Nexus 7 (2013) through Google Play, we are seeing the device show up far less frequently in deal sections across the web. For a time, you could find a deal on Google’s last 7-incher on the daily at sites like eBay, but those times are no longer upon us. So, when we saw the device show up today in a listing as “manufacturer refurbished” and with 32GB of storage, we wanted to share.
This may be one of the last sales for the Nexus 7. At this point, after the dozens of fire sales on them, I can’t imagine there are many left. If you need one final X-mas present or need a solid tablet for yourself, you may want to hop on this.
A deal on SEGA titles which went up this past weekend, is currently taking place on Google Play, allowing you to nab five great games for just $5. Each priced at $1, titles up for grabs are Crazy Taxi, Sonic Jump, After Burner, Climax, Virtua Tennis Challenge, and All Stars Racing. (more…)
Motorola’s new Moto G (2nd gen) can be had on Amazon today for the ridiculously low price of $149 ($30 off). Keep in mind that that price is without a contract, so the best deal in smartphones somehow just got better than ever.
As a recap, the new Moto G sports a 5-inch HD display, stereo speakers, Snapdragon 400 processor (quad-core), 2,070mAh battery, 8MP rear camera, 1GB RAM, microSD slot with support up to 32GB cards, and has already received the update to Android 5.0 Lollipop. It doesn’t have an LTE chip, so you are stuck on US GSM networks, but you should still see pretty decent data speeds.
While this phone won’t satisfy the flagship-needy, this is a great phone for anyone not interested in signing a contract with a carrier, kids, or someone who wants an extremely affordable phone without any fuss.

Amazon, with its Green Monday deals, is hosting a sale on 7″ Kindle Fire HDX tablets, priced at 50% off their MSRP. While you won’t find us promoting deals often on these tablets, you can’t beat only $159 for a 64GB tablet with WiFi+LTE ($139 for the 16GB model), and access to Amazon’s entire library of goodies for Prime members.

The DROID Turbo, a device we actually really like for the most part and consider to be the best “DROID” phone in a couple of years (our review), is currently included in Best Buy’s Green Monday deals. It’s still listed at $199 on-contract, but if you buy one through Best Buy, they will hand you either a $100 or $150 gift card (good luck figuring out which one they will give you). So in a way, you could be picking up the new DROID for around $50.
As a recap, the DROID Turbo sports a 5.2-inch QHD display, Snapdragon 805 processor, 21MP camera, 3GB RAM, and a massive 3,900mAh battery. It also runs mostly stock Android with Motorola’s useful suite of apps added on, all of which are included in the new Moto X (2nd gen). This phone, is legit. (more…)
Need another last minute present idea? Chromecast. Yes, once again, the HDMI dongle from Google is one of the best presents you can give to your friends and family during the holidays. If you think the Chromecast is old news and want another idea, keep in mind that if you buy one before December 21, Google will give you $20 in Google Play credit. Yep, the $35 dongle comes with $20 in Play credit to spend however you please.
Oh, Amazon has the Chromecast for about $2.50 cheaper than Google with Prime shipping and includes the credit. Get after it.

In need of a cheap Bluetooth headset, but are trying to avoid looking like that guy? Think about the Invisible Bluetooth headset that is on sale in the DL Deals shop for just $17.99.
The Invisible Bluetooth headset was designed to be, well, almost invisible. Sort of like the Motorola Hint, the Invisible wants to sit in your ear ready to take calls, but remain out of sight. It’s super lightweight, has 30-foot range, 5 hours of talk time, and touch-based controls. It may not carry the full feature set of the Hint, but again, if you just need something to make and take calls with that stays out of view, consider it.
