HTC might be having its official announcement at MWC 2015 later this afternoon, but that hasn’t stopped Best Buy from jumping the gun by letting its product page for the HTC One M9 go live. If you’ve followed the leaks at all, you already know all about the One M9. Previous leaks have seen the HTC One M9 appearing in promotional pictures and videos as well as suffering the indignity of being compared to its predecessors by a member of the press with early access.

Sprint and Best Buy have teamed up to offer customers an exclusive plan that includes unlimited talk, text, data and your choice of any phone that Sprint offers. Here’s a detailed list of Sprints new “Best Buy One Plan”:
If you have had your eye on the Dell Venue 8 7000, now might be a good chance to grab one. Best Buy has it on sale for $369.99 ($30 off), plus they are giving you a bonus. That would be 1 year of Microsoft Office 365 Personal, which is a $69.99 value. On top of all this, they are including Free shipping.
The Office 365 subscription will include one PC or Mac plus one iPad or Select Windows Tablet. I am hoping they failed to mention Android in the notes since Microsfot Office is now available on Android tablets.
If you’ve been waiting to pick up a Moto 360 with a metal band in Canada, your wait is almost over. The company is set to release the metal-clad variants of its smartwatch later in March this year at a few different retailers.
The dark and light metal Moto 360 will be available for $329, and you’ll be able to pick up both options at Future Shop or Best Buy. TELUS will also be carrying the dark metal 360, and they’ll exclusively sell the champagne finish watch with the 18 mm strap, if you’re looking for something a little thinner. Read more
If you’ve been in the market for a smartwatch then you may want to head to Best Buy and pick up a Moto 360 with a metal band. If you do, you’ll be given a $50 Best Buy gift card. While it’s not $50 off like the previous Moto 360/Best Buy sale, the $50 gift card can be applied to other things at the tech outlet. So either way, if you’re in the market for a smartwatch, this isn’t too bad of a deal. Hit the source link below to snag it.

Pretty soon, we expect Motorola to announce the next version of its affordable Moto E handset. A product page went live earlier today on Best Buy’s site showing that the device would cost $99. This specific listing is for the Sprint variant as a prepaid option. Also, specifications and images of the device were included. The Moto E (2015) does not seem to have changed all that much compared to its predecessor.
Hit the break for specifications and images of the device.
If you’re in the market for an Android Wear smart watch then you may want to head over to Best Buy’s web site as the tech store has Motorola’s Moto 360 for $50 off. As you can see from the image above, you can pick up the natural metal Moto 360 for what you get the normal Moto 360 with a leather band for.
Samsung’s Gear VR headset was announced at the same time as the Galaxy Note 4, but getting your hands on one has been tricky. So far, Samsung has only been selling it online through Best Buy’s online store and in some European countries, so it’s hardly widely available. Fortunately it looks like that’ll change in February.
Starting February 8th, a select 100 Best Buy stores will begin stocking the Gear VR with a demo Note 4 for customers to test drive. The demo units will have four experiences to check out, including Milk Video for videos, TheBlu for gaming, Transformers for a virtual reality movie, and 360 Photos for viewing images. Those should cover most of the bases for someone that’s interested in buying a Gear VR. Read more
Hot on the heels of their latest promo video, or perhaps in conjunction with the new video, Samsung has expanded availability of the Samsung Gear VR headset. Best Buy is now listing the device as available for order on their web site for a price of $199.99. That is the same price that you will find it for on the Samsung site or through AT&T. With free expedited shipping, buyers could have the device in their hands, or strapped to their head, by this weekend. That does assume they already own a Samsung Galaxy Note 4, or plan to get one in the next couple days, since that is currently the only device that the Gear VR is compatible with.
The expansion to Best Buy is certainly going to put the Gear VR in front of a lot more consumers. That will be especially true if they get a few units to have available in the Samsung Experience areas of Best Buy retail locations.

Best Buy is running a limited time promotion with Sprint to give customers a free one-month trial of Sprint’s prepaid network when they buy certain phones. This move should hopefully help Sprint boost their subscriber numbers after falling to second place to T-Mobile.
To qualify, all a customer has to do is purchase any eligible phone and have it activated at Best Buy. There are plenty of options, including Samsung’s Galaxy S III and Galaxy S 5, the LG Tribute and LG Volt, and the Sharp Crystal. After the trial month, users can pick between three different tiers of plans to move onto, starting at $35 per month for unlimited talk and text with 1 GB of data, and capping out at $55 per month for 6 GB of data.
