Yesterday, we unboxed the red Nexus 5 in typical fun fashion. It was a good time and all, but during the clip, we mentioned that we had a second unit floating around the DL offices that would more than likely end up in the hands of one of you. Because we stick to our word, it’s time now to give this bright red Google flagship away.
The red Nexus 5 was introduced earlier this week as a third colorway for Google’s latest smartphone. Outside of the bright red exterior, it’s no different than the black or white variants that have been around since late 2013, and even comes in both 16GB and 32GB models at $349 and $399, respectively. From the comments of our unboxing, we can tell that people either love or hate the color – there isn’t much room for a mixed opinion on this one. Personally, I’m a fan, but I’m a fanboy of all things bright, shiny, and Google.
Whoever wins this, let’s hope you like beacons of bright red light. You ready? (more…)
If Google decides to push out a bunch of updates to their suite of apps on any given day, Wednesdays are usually a good bet. Sure enough, we are seeing all sorts of apps receive updates today (Hangouts, Cloud Print, Google Search, Maps, Newsstand, and more), most of which don’t have changelogs or haven’t arrived on anyone’s device due to our favorite thing in the industry, staged rollouts for updates. Thankfully, this is the internet, which means that some people are bound to be a part of that initial wave. Some of those delightful people also like to share their treasures.
Below, we’ve started a list of the apps that are being updated, along with download links and changelogs (as we have them). We will try to update this throughout the day. (more…)
We wouldn’t normally point out a year-and-a-half old tablet as a potentially good buy, but when it shows up on Woot! in “new” condition for $149, it may actually be worth a look. Such is the case with the Nexus 7 (2012), that is today’s daily deal on the bargain bin site. The tablet launched in the summer of 2012, seemed to take the Android tablet game by storm with its insanely low price and decent set of specs, and was the first in a line of tablets that most Android enthusiasts consider a “must have” each year.

This weekend, outside of your Super Bowl festivities, you will have a chance to walk away from DL with a $50 Google Play gift card for doing almost nothing. We are giving away five to be exact, meaning there are $250 in prizes up for grabs to the community. This isn’t our first contest of the year by any means – already gave away a Nexus 5 and some Nexus 7 sleeves – but I do believe this is the largest amount of Google Play gift cards we have ever given away at one time, if that means anything to you.
We figured, why not start the year off right? You ready to be $50 richer? (more…)
Haven’t purchased much music from Google Play? Considering how great Google Music’s free cloud music storage is, that’s understandable. However, Google wants to encourage folks to buy music from its digital storefront, and so the company’s offering select users classic albums at the deeply discounted price of $0.99. (more…)
Competition is a great thing, my friends. Perhaps in response to T-Mobile’s jabs and break-up plan or just because they darn well feel like it, AT&T is offering current customers $100 when they activate a new line of service. A retention plan befitting of the Dark Side? Perhaps, but money is money.
The offer may not be as great as it seems, considering a AT&T’s $36 dollar activation fee still applies. Still, for anyone looking to save a few bucks, the promotion runs through March 31 and applies to all post-paid smartphones, tablets, features phones and wireless home phones. For customers who take advantage, you’ll see the credit “within three billing cycles.”
Did you miss Motorola’s fire sale on the Moto X at $100 off yesterday? And did you miss our community giving away their unused codes? Well, don’t you worry, Motorola still has you covered. Starting yesterday and ending on Valentine’s Day, you can pick up a Moto X for $70 off through MotoMaker off contract, bringing the price to $329.99 for the 16GB model and $379.99 for the 32GB model.
