Samsung announced this morning that the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge go up for pre-order starting tomorrow, March 27, with nationwide availability opening up on April 10. That doesn’t mean that all carriers will have the device available that day, so we thought we would gather all of the information from individual carriers and slap it for you in a single post. Let’s make this easy – well, as easy as it can be with two phones, three colors, three storage sizes, and who knows how many price points and payment plans.
Here we go. (more…)
Best Buy is hosting a really solid 4-hour sale today that slashes $100 off Google’s new Nexus 9 tablet. Both the 16GB and 32GB black models are included, so if you are interested, you can get into a Nexus 9 for $299 or $379, respectively. Most of us always thought the Nexus 9 should have been priced at $299 and $379 out of the gate. In other words, this deal is completely worth it.
Best Buy isn’t just stopping with the tablet itself, though. They are also offering up the Magic or Smart Cover for the Nexus 9 at $29.99 (normally $39) and the Keyboard Folio for $97.49 (normally $129).
Finally, the Chromecast has been dropped to just $29, which is a $5 discount.
The deals are live now and end at 3PM CT.

According to various users across the web, who seem to be grouping themselves together on reddit, Best Buy will begin pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge on March 27, with launch on AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint set for April 10. (more…)
HTC’s RE camera, a GoPro-like action cam that is the first of many of HTC’s new product lines, is on-sale at Best Buy in a daily deal for just $99. The RE normally carries a $199 price, so we are talking about a 50% discount for today only.
As a recap, the RE is HTC’s action camera that shoots 1080p video, uses a 146-degree wide-angle lens, 16MP Sony sensor for stills with digital image stabilization, and is waterproof. It might be shaped like a periscope, but the design allows you to hold it comfortably while snapping photos at will. It doesn’t have many buttons or a viewfinder, so you have to use an Android companion app to see the photos and videos you are capturing. That’s OK, though, because it allows for quick sharing.
I don’t think anyone would consider the RE to be an award-winning product, but I can tell you that in my time with it, it has become a great party, child-chasing, and travel camera for all of those spur of the moment shots. It’s probably worth about $100.
The deal includes white, blue, and orange models.
