We noticed a couple of deals floating around today that were worth sharing, one of which includes a special edition Star Wars version of the DROID 2. Everyone remember the R2D2 slideout DROID 2 that Verizon wanted $250 on-contract for? Since the phone was priced insanely high, it never did sell out even though limited numbers were produced. The proof is today’s deal through eBay that has the device readily available for $69.99. At that price point, we are talking impulse buy/novelty/collectible territory.
Outside of that random throwback, we thought we should point out that Amazon has had the Chromecast listed for $29.99 for a couple of weeks – that’s $5 off retail. Amazon is also hosting a flash memory sale for PNY cards, including a 64GB microSD card for $35. (more…)
There is a good chance that Google gives us a Nexus 7 (2014) in a couple of months, but that doesn’t mean the 2013 model shouldn’t be considered for your next 7-inch tablet, especially at the rock bottom prices we keep seeing through daily deal sites. Take for example the deal running today through eBay. For $139.99, you could pick up the Nexus 7 (2013) with 16GB of storage. Sure, it’s “manufacturer refurbished,” but some would argue that’s a good thing.
The 16GB version through Google Play still current retails for $229. Do the words “manufacturer refurbished” scare you enough to give up a $90 discount? (more…)
April 1 is a weird day. Everyone is hesitant to believe in anything they see or hear, but we can guarantee you that this sale from Google is legit. If you absolutely need a case or sleeve for your handy Nexus device, today is the day to buy. (more…)
Last night, Google pushed forward on its quest to bring its range of hardware to other parts of the world outside the U.S.
The Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 are now available in eight new countries including Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Netherlands, Portugal and Sweden.
Google’s HDMI dongle, the Chromecast, is now available in eleven new countries including Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden and the U.K. Retailers like Amazon, Google Play, Currys PC World, Elkjøp, FNAC, Saturn, and Media Markt will all carry it.
And, yep. (more…)
Best Buy is currently selling the Nexus 7 (2013) with LTE for $299, $50 off its retail price. This is the same tablet that Verizon now sells for $349 or $49 on-contact. This is also the same Nexus 7 (2013) with LTE that can be purchased on Google Play and will work with AT&T, T-Mobile, and Big Red’s LTE networks.
For $299, and with LTE connectivity on those three carriers, you can’t really beat the value.

Cheers Scott and Stephen!
Part of the benefit of Google offering Nexus devices from the Play Store is their low cost and the ease of no contract. Today’s offer from Verizon introduces you to an even lower price on the Nexus 7 (2013), but at the cost of signing up on a new 2-year contract. (more…)
Sure, the Nexus 7 has been on the market for months, but it’s never too late to finally release a few new official docking stations, right? ASUS announced the availability of two different docks for the Nexus 7 (2013) today, one which you plug the tablet into, and another which features wireless charging capabilities. (more…)
