Feel like picking up one of those limited edition DROID DNA devices that are exclusively for Verizon employees? If you head over to eBay, there are a few listings for the device, all of which are either already over or on their way to being over the DNA’s MSRP. That’s to be expected, right? (more…)
Still haven’t picked up a Nexus 7? Maybe eBay’s deal today will get you to pull the trigger. On sale for $229, with free shipping, you can pick up the 32GB version and save yourself over $20 (potentially much more because of shipping). The listing says that quantities are “limited,” so you may want to jump on this sooner rather than later.
Update: Annnnnnd, sold out.
In today’s daily deal, eBay is selling an unlocked Samsung Galaxy Note 2 with 16GB of internal storage for $589. For comparison’s sake, we can look at Negri Electronics and Expansys USA who are selling imported versions of the same device for $665 and $680, respectively. I’d call $589 quite the steal for such a new phone that’s powered by a quad-core processor, 5.5″ HD display, 2GB RAM and Jelly Bean.
U.S. carriers should announce dates for their variants this week in NYC, but if you want one now, this isn’t a bad option. Understand though, that this isn’t an LTE phone, however, it should work fine on AT&T and T-Mobile.
Today, users of the New York Times application can go grab an update and will see some major UI changes going on inside. They have completely re-vamped the interface with the holo theme and it’s really great looking. Plus one, NYTimes. As for eBay, they’ve been bug fixing ever since the release of version 2.0 and this update looks to better the app’s performance and a few other things. Overall, it’s become much easier to post my Star Wars collectibles for sale ever since 2.0.
Go get your updating on!
There is nothing better in the Android tablet game right now than the Nexus 7. Small, powerful and not expensive, Google really did a good job with this thing and if you are looking to pick one up today’s deal might be the right time for you to do so.
The deal today comes to us from eBay which offers a 16GB Nexus 7, an official ASUS case to go with it and free shipping to boot. Unfortunately these cases will most likely not have the magnetic sleep/wake function that the Nexus 7 makes use of, but it will at least keep your tablet safe. Since it is the 16GB version the price tag runs $249 which is still a very good deal if you want to get a Jelly Bean tablet in your hands.
When the Nexus 7 first went on sale, early adopters had the opportunity to tack on an official $19.99 case to their order. According to eBay listings that a reader just sent us, you would have been wise to have done just that. Since the case has been backordered for weeks, Nexus 7 owners have been forced into buying cheap knock-offs from Amazon and then modifying them a bit so that they work with the Jelly Bean running beast. If you want official though, you better be ready to pay up to 5 times as much as the case is worth. If you cruise around eBay for a minute, you’ll find the N7 case anywhere from $60 to over $100.
Is it really that nice of a case?
Cheers Teng Taing!
We see yet-to-be-released products go up for sale on eBay all of the time. It’s just something that happens when people are given free stuff before the general public. In the case of the guy that just bought a Google Nexus 7 for $1825 though, we can’t help but shake our heads. The fact that someone was willing to spend close to $2K on a device that will be here in 2 weeks for $199, has left us 100% speechless. Now, the Nexus 7 is a heck of a little tablet, plus this special edition white version from I/O is extra hot, but it sure as hell isn’t worth $1825. Dude could have gone and almost bought a brand new retina Macbook Pro or something really impressive. (more…)
Update: Some crazy person actually paid $2250 for this. The auction is closed.
It is no longer a secret that Verizon is going to offer employees their very own special edition DROID RAZR or RAZR MAXX. Word leaked out last week that VZW workers would have the opportunity to purchase a red-backed and individually engraved version of the device at discounted prices. In not surprising fashion, one of those workers is using it to his advantage to make a couple of bucks via eBay.
His listing claims that the device will be in his hands around March 2 or 3 and has opened up the bidding at $750. Yep, that’s $100 more than you can buy the device for straight up off contract in traditional grey and black. Interested?
