Deal: Nexus 7 (2013) 16GB on Sale for $129 From NewEgg

NewEgg’s eBay shop is hosting a deal today on the Nexus 7 (2013) with 16GB of storage that is one of the lowest prices you will see. At $129 for a “manufacturer refurbished” unit, you probably won’t find a better deal than this on last year’s Nexus tablet. Actually, you may not see many more of these deals with the Nexus 9 close to release – we would imagine that resellers are going to do whatever they can to blast through remaining inventory on last year’s model, if they haven’t already.

Deal: Pre-order Pocket-sized Karma Go LTE Hotspot for $99

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…)
