Contest: Win an LG G Watch or Samsung Gear Live From Droid Life!

Android Wear is here in the form on the Samsung Gear Live (review) and LG G Watch (review). It’s early for the new wearable platform, which means it has a lot of growing to do before most of you need it in your life. With that said, we know that many of you are itching to try it out, but may not want to fork out the $200 it currently requires to get one of these on your wrist. So, we are here to give one of each away to two amazing DL readers. That’s right, because we love you, you have a chance to win either a G Watch or a Gear Live.  (more…)

Deal: Nexus 7 (2013) WiFi 32GB for $159 From eBay

Another week, another Nexus 7 (2013) deal to be had through eBay. Today’s is for a “like new condition manufacturer refurbished” version with 32GB of storage and WiFi-only connectivity, priced at $159.99 with free standard shipping and a 90-day warranty. The regular retail price for this model through Google Play is $269.99, but Google currently doesn’t even have it in stock.

While it may not be brand new, you are looking at manufacturer refurbishing that has dropped the price by $110. Not a bad deal if you are looking to enter the tablet game, pick up a 2nd for around the house, or flash the Android L preview.

Deal: LG G Watch From AT&T Available for $179 Through Accessory Promo

AT&T appears to be running an accessory promo at the moment that will land you 25% off your entire cart if you buy three or more products. Should you couple the newly released LG G Watch (since it is listed as an accessory) with two incredibly cheap, $5 Body Glove products, you could get into the G Watch for as little as $179. The G Watch currently retails for $229, so you are looking at $50 in savings.

We reviewed the G Watch last night and came away from it more looking to the future, than anything. The product isn’t bad, but the platform behind it is so new that it is tough to fully evaluate where it could be in a couple of months. At $179, it may just be worth a look if you love adopting new technology out of the gate.  (more…)

Deal: Samsung Galaxy Note PRO 12.2 for $479, Regularly $699

Samsung’s massive 12.2-inch tablet, the Galaxy Note PRO 12.2, which was introduced at CES, is available through a daily deal today on eBay for $479.99. The tablet, thanks to its massive 2560×1600 display, typically runs anywhere from $650-700 when brand new at retailers like Amazon or Best Buy. A discount of close to $200 isn’t a bad deal, especially when you think of the entire package here.

The Note PRO line was Samsung’s top-of-the-line series of tablets until the recently introduced Galaxy Tab S line became official, so they are still quite capable. Outside of the high-res 12.2-inch display, the Note PRO 12.2 also features an Exynos 5 Octa processor, 3GB RAM, 32GB of internal storage, micro SD expansion, 8MP/2MP cameras, 9,500mAh battery and an S Pen. You also get Samsung’s vision for tablet productivity, with features like Multi Window, Multi User Mode, Samsung KNOX, and a bunch of “business” apps.

Today’s deal is for a “manufacturer refurbished” Note PRO 12.2 in either black or white.

Deal: Refurbished Nexus 7 (2013) 16GB for $129 From eBay, 32GB for $169

We are quickly approaching the 1-year anniversary of the launch of the Nexus 7 (2013). We have no idea if a new 2014 model will replace it, so if you don’t feel like waiting for Google to make that decision or announcement, take a look at today’s deal on the current model through eBay.

For $129.99, you can pick-up the 16GB version in “manufacturer refurbished” condition. That is actually a pretty substantial discount, since the unit retails for $229 in “new” condition. If you want more storage, the 32GB model in “manufacturer refurbished” condition can be had for $169.99.
