Sometimes, perfectly good products just don’t sell as well as projected. In those cases, retailers most often choose discounts as their preferred means of clearing unwanted inventory. Today, eBay sellers have the GSM variant of the Motorola Moto X Developer Edition (DE) for $229 (about $50 less than the going price) and refurbished Samsung Galaxy 10.5″ Tab S tablets for $335 (usually $499). Both include free shipping.
The Moto X DE may not be the newest kid on the block, but it has the benefit of an unlockable bootloader and the promise of future updates. The Galaxy 10.5″ Tab S, meanwhile, is a powerful tablet for the price.
Perhaps the sale’s only drawback is the dearth of available finishes. Better hope you like the woven white Moto X and titanium bronze on the Galaxy Tab. But beggars cannot be choosers, after all.
