Nexus 9 Magic Cover in Black Leather Shows Up at Best Buy

The Nexus 9 Magic Cover has been available on Google Play for the better part of a week now. After spending some time with it, we decided that while it looks pretty and is a bold idea for a minimal tablet cover, in practice it’s probably not worth its $39 price tag. We also noted that during our time with it, that Google Play mentioned leather versions (both black and natural colors) were coming at some point in the future, though they had yet to surface in an official listing. Until today.

Best Buy is listing the black leather version of the Nexus 9’s Magic Cover for a whopping $49. It isn’t in-stock yet, so you can’t buy it even if you wanted to. But hey, another option on what will likely be another overpriced Nexus accessory.

Any takers?  (more…)

Deal: Buy a DROID Turbo From Best Buy, Get $100 or $150 Gift Card

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…)

Cyber Monday 2014 Deals (Updating Post)

Black Friday” and its never-ending weekend is now over, but that doesn’t meant the deals have stopped. As you all know, today is Cyber Monday, the day built specifically for those of us who want nothing to do with a brick and mortar store on Black Friday. This is the day that online shoppers drool and smile at the deals to be had that do not require us to leave our comfortable office chairs and temperature controlled cubicles.

Like we did on Black Friday, we will continue to update this one massive post, rather than post up each deal individually. So, you may want to check back throughout the day as we try and update it with the best deals around. Some are carry-overs from the weekend, but many are new.

Ready? Let’s save some cash.  (more…)

Best Buy Offers Minimum of $100 Towards Nexus 9 When You Trade in Any Working Tablet

From now until November 29, if you trade in any working tablet at Best Buy, you can get a minimum savings of $100 towards the Nexus 9. If your tablet is in working order, with no cracks on the display, you will receive a $50 gift card, as well as a $50 discount coupon towards Google’s tablet.

Best Buy has few restrictions on the deal, but it does exclude the Nook and other e-readers. To make it short, if you have an old Nexus 7 or Galaxy tablet, now is good time to upgrade.

Sprint Nexus 6 Now Available From Best Buy for $199 on Contract

The Nexus 6 is largely still impossible to find. You have been able to pre-order from AT&T and Sprint for less than a week, but most have had no chance at buying the unlocked model from Google Play or Motorola’s shop. And even if you were lucky enough to order through those last two stores, the chances of your device having arrived already are pretty slim. Hopefully, as we approach what we are assuming is the device’s official launch of today or tomorrow, we should start to see it become more accessible.

Take for example a new Best Buy listing, which shows the Nexus 6 for Sprint available for $199 with a new 2-year contract. That’s $100 cheaper than if you were to buy it through Sprint directly. You can even buy it off-contract for $699, which isn’t exactly cheap, but is an option if you need the device now and don’t want Sprint service.  (more…)
