Verizon is currently running a BOGO (buy one, get one free) offer for the all new HTC One (M8) that is certainly something to consider, though you’ll have to sign a 2-year contract to get in on the deal. If contracts do not scare you, then to save some extra cash, there are a couple of coupon codes that could save you up to 30% on the $199 2-year contract price. (more…)
Just in time for the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One (2014), Amazon is hosting a Gold Box deal on Samsung micro SD PRO and PLUS cards with prices up to 65% off. Since both devices have a slot for expandable storage, you may want to think about picking up a card to take advantage. We should point out that the Galaxy S5 was announced with a micro SD slot, while the “All New HTC One” is only rumored to have one at this point, but all leaks currently point to it having a slot.
The PRO cards start at $15 and go up to $50 for the 64GB version. These cards are capable of transferring data at 70MB/s. The PLUS cards are the slightly cheaper model with prices ranging from $10 to $36 and can transfer data at speeds of 48MB/s. All cards are Class 10 UHS-1, and come with adapters. (more…)
Best Buy is currently selling the Nexus 7 (2013) with LTE for $299, $50 off its retail price. This is the same tablet that Verizon now sells for $349 or $49 on-contact. This is also the same Nexus 7 (2013) with LTE that can be purchased on Google Play and will work with AT&T, T-Mobile, and Big Red’s LTE networks.
For $299, and with LTE connectivity on those three carriers, you can’t really beat the value.
Cheers Scott and Stephen!
Wirefly (and their parent company Simplexity) appears to have closed up shop within the last 24 hours. We received word last night from a reader who had recently purchased a DROID MAXX, yet had not received his device and could also not check the status on it. He took to their Facebook page, since their entire website had been taken down, and found comments from affiliates and other customers who were showing concern as well. A couple of replies from Wirefly to his inquiry about his order mention that the company has filed for bankruptcy and will be issuing a refund. (more…)
With the “All New HTC One” arriving March 25, HTC has dropped the price of the unlocked original One to $499 (full retail) for those interested. This is the phone I purchased to use as my every day phone back in April because it had a number of things going for it.
First, it came SIM unlocked, so it could be used on either T-Mobile or AT&T. Second, it had an unlockable bootloader, so it was certainly dev-friendly. And third, since HTC was in control of it, it was poised to receive updates in a timely manner. I wrote an entire post about it, which you can view here. (more…)
