If the Verizon version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is going to be a major part of your future, you may want to cruise into your local Best Buy. At some stores, the device is already on display, even though we don’t have an official launch date from Big Red. We keep hearing and seeing November 29 as being the day, but again, until VZW says so, we aren’t about to tell you to cut work that day and get in line at your local store.
Still, the sooner you get your hands on this phone the better. As we mentioned in our review, the device will take some getting used to because of the size. I, personally, am not a fan of a phone this big, but others find it to be perfect. In fact, 3 million of them have already been sold globally, and we have yet to see all U.S. carriers kick off sales of it.
On a related note (pun definitely not intended), the Verizon version in Best Buy stores already has the multi-window feature up and running. Verizon’s own site references the feature, so it’s not like we weren’t expecting to get it, we just weren’t sure if it would be there at launch or not. This certainly gives the impression that it will be there out of the box. (more…)
Rather than waiting for it to leak, Best Buy went ahead and posted up a preview of their Black Friday deals, this morning. There are 22 pages of deals in this preview, many of which involve Android devices. You’ll find tablets like the Transformer Pad for $279, original RAZR MAXX for free, Galaxy S3 on Sprint for $48, and the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 for $179. Beyond that, you’ll find TVs, appliances, tons of Windows 8 computers, and other media devices. It’s an intense Black Friday ad, so be sure to check it out.

With Best Buy running a $100 off promotion for the Samsung Galaxy S3 today, Amazon was feeling a bit left out and decided to tweak their own listings. Both new customers and those with upgrades can take advantage of a $99 deal on the Verizon, Sprint, and AT&T GS3 16GB models. T-Mobile isn’t listed, but Sprint is. And since Best Buy isn’t discounting the Sprint version, then this is your option, Sprint customers. Both blue and white versions are discounted – you’ll find links to blue below.

Best Buy sure wants you to own a Samsung Galaxy S3. And rightfully so, the device is still one of the best in the industry, even after going on sale way back in July. Tomorrow, BBY will help you get into one for $100 cheaper than normal. It’s a one-day sale, with Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T 16GB variants up for grabs.
You have to sign a new 2-year contract in order to get the $100 discount, but you probably assumed that was the case. Again, November 2 (tomorrow), you can head into your local Best Buy and save on the Galaxy S3.
Best Buy announced this morning that they will hold another 1-day deal for the Samsung Galaxy S3. Tomorrow only, October 26, you can stop by any Best Buy store across this great country, and grab the GS3 from Verizon, AT&T or Sprint for $100 less than normal. In the press note, it mentions the 16GB model as being a part of the deal.
Oh, Best Buy. This afternoon, an unlikely source outed some official info on the LG Spectrum 2. Usually, a carrier such as Verizon or a manufacturer, in this case LG, would announce specs, pricing, and availability for a device. In a fortunate mix-up, Best Buy has done the unveiling. Before today, we had a pretty good idea, well we pretty much knew, that it was coming to Verizon with some specs that didn’t quite compare to the Optimus G’s, but more like the Optimus LTE2. Now, we know everything one may need to know before making a final decision on whether it’s buy worthy or not. (more…)
If you are headed into a Best Buy store this weekend to shop for a new smartphone, make sure you go on Sunday, October 14. Best Buy is planning to knock $100 off of the Samsung Galaxy S3 for one day only. The sale should be happening nationwide, and from what we can tell, includes variants from all carriers.
We reviewed the Galaxy S3 a couple of times now, and still consider it to be one of the best phones on the market today.
If you are looking to buy an Android tablet right now, it’s hard to over look ASUS. Whether it be the Nexus 7 or the higher priced Transformer Infinity, they are on top of the Android tablet game. Although, if you are a sucker for a good deal, you might want to check out the bundle that Samsung and Best Buy have put together which is to arrive in stores around August 19.
For $250 you can have the 8GB 7″ version of the Galaxy Tab 2, along with a keyboard dock and a USB connector. Not a bad bundle if you consider that keyboards for tablets usually run anywhere from $30-$50 by themselves.
Wouldn’t it be nice to see a huge price war between tablet OEM’s at around $200?
