Earlier, we told you about the deals running on the United Kingdom version of the Google Store. Now we’re back to tell you that the Google Store in the United States has its own take on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. You’ll be able to get phones, tablets, smartwatches, Chromebooks, and a lot more at a discounted price from Google.
Black Friday craziness has descended upon us, with everyone and his dog discounting all the items under the sun trying to entice your hard-earned cash out of your wallet, or purse for that matter. Amazon is one of the biggest culprits, cutting prices on its Kindle and Fire hardware in the UK and the US, some of which were already cheap to start with.
Everyone is getting into the spirit of Black Friday madness, Amazon slashed prices of its own-brand devices earlier, and now the UK Google Store has reduced prices on the Nexus 9, Nexus cases, and the Huawei Watch. And if that isn’t quite enough, buying a new Chromecast will also get you a goodly amount of Play Store credit to get started with. Join us after the break for more details.

Do you remember the Galaxy TabPRO series of tablets that Samsung launched last year with high-end specifications, a premium price and a short shelf life? If you do, you may have a better memory than Samsung because according to Samsung UK’s Twitter team, the TabPRO 8.4 model won’t be updated to Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. Which means you can probably forget about getting a Marshmallow update as well.
Besides unveiling the Redmi Note 3 that sports a massive 4,000mAh battery, Xiaomi also took the wraps off its latest tablet, the Mi Pad 2, powered by a quad-core Intel processor and sporting an all-metal body. Much in the same vein as the Redmi Note 3, the Mi Pad 2 offers a high-spec experience for an affordable price, with the 16GB variant running MIUI 7, and a 64GB version that will be available running either MIUI 7 or Windows 10.
In recent times, most Cyanogen related news has been about which new handset will sport the alternative Android operating system, but today the Cyanogen team has announced the availability of CM13 nightlies for a selection of devices. As you might already know, CM13 is based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and the term ‘nightlies’ is basically a euphemism for betas.
