Yesterday we reported that Google had updated the Play Store to indicate 1-2 business days for shipping on the new Nexus 9 tablet. If you just cannot wait until tomorrow or later this week, it appears Best Buy has some versions of the tablet in stock and ready for pick-up at their retail stores. For now at least, only the Indigo Black versions are available and a quick check in my area shows good availability of the 16GB model. The 32GB model is available, but the locations that have them are a little more sparse.
Anyone out there planning to run down to a Best Buy and pick up a Nexus 9 today? If so, use the source link to check local store availability and let us know what you think of your shiny new tablet.

As from today, residents in the United States can buy a Moto 360 wireless Qi charger from either Best Buy’s online portal or from any of its 600 nationwide bricks-and-mortar stores.
One of the launch devices for Android Wear is available at Best Buy with a very attractive price tag. The G Watch, normally $229, is on sale for just $159 with free shipping. There are only three Android Wear devices on the market right now and this one from LG is still perfectly suitable for many people. Both Titan Black and White Gold models are reflecting the discount.
Are you interested in the LG G Watch at this price? Let us know in the comments if you are picking one up.

Consumers interested in the latest version of the Motorola Moto G can now grab an unlocked version from Best Buy for $179.99. The retailer is carrying the 5-inch smartphone in black or white versions, though you will have to get the white version shipped to you whereas the black version is available in store or for pickup.
The Moto G (2014) is similar to the previous version of the device in offering a decent hardware package at a budget price point. Motorola did let the device grow a bit as the Moto G (2014) sports a 5-inch display versus the previous version’s 4.5-inch display. One notable missing feature for some buyers though will be the lack of 4G support.

Best Buy has today announced that it recently joined forces with Motorola to develop and launch a new, exclusive leather strap for the Lenovo-owned company’s first Android Wear smartwatch — the Moto 360.
Throw this in the “we’re not surprised” news category but the Moto 360 is sold out online. If you look at Motorola, Google Play, and Best Buy are all listed as “sold out.” If you were one of the lucky few who snagged one, good for you, but for the rest of us, well, here’s the bad news. We’re going to have to wait. Motorola said in a statement to re/code that it’s working to replenish the stock, but with the high demand, getting one will be tough. Of course there’s always a way to get one if you need one now.
LG’s G Watch might be slightly outdated thanks to the G Watch R, but it’s still a fantastic Android Wear device. Today, Best Buy is shaving a full $50 off the list price of the smartwatch, so you can pick one up for only $179, which definitely isn’t a bad price for how new it is. The only catch is that you’ll have to get it shipped to your house, as store pickup isn’t available right now. Read more

If you’ve been considering picking up a Moto G but have been holding off due to lack of 4G connectivity, you might want to take advantage of the deal Best Buy is running today. For just $179, you can buy the 4G version of the Moto G, which is what the standard unlocked 8 GB Moto G currently runs. Plus, the 4G also has a microSD card slot that the original did not have.
The only catch is that the deal is only available in store, so you won’t be able to place an order online. Aside from that, it’s a great phone at a very affordable price.
