After yesterday’s announcement of the Samsung Galaxy Gear we heard the unfortunate official word from Samsung that their smartwatch would not run regular Android apps. Instead, Samsung would have to work with app developers to make useful applications that ran on their newest device. Don’t worry though, Samsung is a big enough company that they can draw in developers for their new smartwatch. They have announced 12 apps with launch with the Gear and that the number will eventually be up towards 70. (more…)
eBay is hosting a sweet little deal on new Nexus 10 tablets, priced at only $369.99 for the 32GB variant. If you were to look on Google Play, you can find the exact device, but listed at a whopping $500. The tablet, in regards to specs and performance, is still a great option for those who like to compare. It features the super high-res 10″ 2560 x 1600 WQXGA display, an Exynos 5 dual-core processor, 2GB of RAM, a 5MP back-facing camera and the ability to have the latest versions of Android running almost as soon as they are released.

Ebay is currently running a solid daily deal on the 2013 Nexus 7. For $199, you can grab the 16GB variant that normally retails for $229 through outlets like the Google Play store. And if the $30 savings wasn’t enough to get you moving, the seller is also offering free shipping with orders. Oh, and this is a brand new N7, not refurbished.
The quantities are limited, so if you are in the market for a new Nexus 7, get over there.
The Moto X may have officially been unveiled this past Thursday, but we have yet to hear an official launch date. We were told by Motorola that the device would start to arrive in late August or early September, and that they were leaving specific dates up to their carrier partners. If you can’t wait for those announcements to come or for the end of the month to arrive, ebay is your friend. Listed today, we have a Moto X “prototype” with a “Buy It Now” price of $799.95. Should you choose to fork out the substantially increased-over-retail price, you could have the phone by Tuesday. (more…)
Wednesday appears to be app update day for Android, as a glance through my Nexus 4 revealed all sorts of new popular apps with new builds available. The biggest lies with eBay, which now has tablet support, an updated selling experience, and a redesigned home screen to name a few off the list of new features. But we’re also seeing updates to WordPress, Blogger, Yelp, Falcon Pro, Adobe Air, and more.
The WordPress update (which was actually introduced yesterday) introduces notifications for new comments, followers, likes, etc. The Blogger update finally brings tablet support to Google’s blogging platform, along with a WYSIWYG editor for existing posts. Yelp’s update brought with it fixes for all sorts of bugs, but some new minor actions as well. Adobe Air and Falcon Pro updates are nothing more than bug and security fixes.
All changelogs can be found below. (more…)
As we approach Google I/O and rumors of a new model Nexus 7 loom, deals for the current version are popping up on the daily. Today, eBay is featuring a refurbished 32GB Nexus 7 for a price of $189, which is cheaper than you’ll find anywhere. According to the listing, this has been “manufacturer refurbished,” meaning it has been “professionally restored to working order” by the manufacturer or approved vendor. Shipping is also free.
