Are you still holding out for the awesome Samsung Galaxy Nexus for some reason, or maybe just waiting for Sprint to finally release this bad boy? If telling you that Verizon has the faster network of the two carriers isn’t enough, then how about if I told you that you could scoop up the VZW branded device for a mere $50 with a new two-year contract? Already have a Verizon account? Well you can still get your hands on one for the upgrade price of $150 which isn’t a bad deal either.

Right now Amazon Wireless is offering the best price we’ve seen yet for this years most popular phone. Like I just mentioned, folks signing up with Verizon for the first time can buy the G Nex for only $50 and current customers can upgrade for only $150. If this is just enough to finally push you over the edge, hit up the source link below to get in on the action. You wont regret it! Well, that is unless VZW magically pulls a Galaxy S III out of their… hat.. in the next couple months.

ASUS Transformer Pad 300 Tablet Surfaces On Amazon Website, Comes With April 22nd Arrival Date

tagged , , , ,


Well what do we have here gang? We’d just reported how the upcoming ASUS Transformer Pad 300 is due to arrive in Europe by next month, but we here in the States are about to have an early Christmas. Apparently the tablet is set to arrive on April 22nd— this Sunday. How sure are we of this? Well, there’s been no concrete statement or confirmation from ASUS directly, but Amazon went ahead and let the cat out of the bag by listing the tablet on its website and clearly highlights the item “will be released on April 22, 2012″ for $489.99— less than the expected price for the European version which should cost $525.

In case you’ve forgotten, there’s quite a potent punch in the tablet. Those of you who splurge on the device will get a sweet Tegra 3 processor powering a 10.1-inch screen, 32GB of hard drive space and a heavy dose of Ice Cream Sandwich. Hit the source link below for more details.

tagged , , ,

Wirefly is one of the top online cell phone retailers and always offering great prices on top Android devices. Today we can see more proof of that. If you’ve been drooling over the latest VZW device but that original price gave you a case of the sticker shock, you’re in luck. The Galaxy Nexus is on sale now for the low, low price of $49.99 with a new contract. That is a far cry from the price of $299 when it first appeared on Big Red. This is definitely a great choice for anyone looking to switch to Verizon Wireless and longing for a new device. Now from the looks of it, if you chose to upgrade to the Galaxy Nexus, you’ll have to dig a little deeper in those pockets and fork over $149.99. Still that’s not a bad deal for a device that sports Android 4.0 aka Ice Cream Sandwich, 4.65” display, 32Gb built-in storage, LTE, NFC and more.

So head on over to Wirefly and take a look and see if this offer is for you.

Daily Steals Offering Unlocked HTC One X For $630.00

So you live in the States and want in on the quad-core HTC One X before everyone else? You may want to head on out to Daily Steals as soon as possible. Right now, they have the unlocked One X for sale for a mere $630. That means you have a chance to be the cool kid in class or in the office by owning one of the first quad-core devices. Keep in mind that this device is not the LTE version (the LTE version features a Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor) and while it could work on AT&T & T-Mobile bands, it’s likely not going to be optimized, so you may see slower than normal 3G and/or HSPA+ speeds. But hey, all we really care about on the device is the Tegra 3 and Beats Audio anyways.

Prospective buyers will want to hurry as they only have until tonight to get in on the deal.

Will the 7-Inch Galaxy Tab 2 be Priced at $310? QVC Seems to Think So

by Stacy Bruce on
tagged ,

For those of you who are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0), I imagine you are interested to know its retail price, too. Lucky for us, an eagle-eyed Phone Arena reader spotted a QVC ad for the device before it was quickly removed from their website. According to the attached QVC screenshot, the new 7-inch Galaxy Tab will run $309.96, at least through QVC as long as details don’t change before it officially goes on sale. This price was listed for the most basic 8GB version of the device with no cellular capabilities so expect that as the base price for the 7-inch tab.

Since this info was outed by mistake one could easily think the new Samsung slates are just around the corner, but lets not forget about the most recent news of a delayed launch due to software issues. In reality, we are probably not going to see the new Sammy tabs until late April if not early March and the UK is the first country said to receive the devices. Lets hope the issues get ironed out sooner rather than later and the $310 price tag actually becomes a reality.

As you might already know, they have a trade-in program in which you could receive up to $200 in the form of a Best Buy gift card for the value of your old mobile phone. To top it off, starting April 8 they’re also offering an additional $50 discount off the smartphones listed above as long as you trade in any mobile phone. So it’s basically a double dipping sale, Grab $50 off the purchase price plus get a Best Buy gift card for whatever the value is of your old phone that you’re trading in. The deal ends on May 5.

They also have another deal in which they’re giving $50 off of any Sprint smartphone, plus an additional $50 for trading in an HTC EVO 4G. This might be a good deal, but I would only trade my EVO 4G for the new EVO 4G LTE that was just announced yesterday. Unfortunately pre-orders for that one don’t start till May 7, and it’s unknown if they would honor it or when this particular deal ends.
