Android’s new budget-friendly superstar is already making rounds on television. Today only, the Moto G is available from Home Shopping Network, who also sells Nokia’s Lumia 521, for just $79.95 after a $50 mail-in rebate. The channel is offering the deal for today only as part of their Today’s Special, so make sure you take advantage of it quickly. At the time of this writing, HSN says that have already sold 5,200 units. Through this deal, Boost Mobile is the carrier being supplied. In case you were unaware, $50 gets you unlimited talk, text, and data; however, for every six months you remain a customer, your monthly bill drops $5 until you reach $40.

If HSN’s straight-up price is not good enough for you, you can use their FlexPay financing that spreads it into monthly payments across two, three, or four months. The four month FlexPay is $35 per month. Also, having an HSN card gives you an extra option of paying over five months. But I am not quite sure anyone really needs to have the Moto G’s price lingering around for months. The source link below will take you to HSN’s site.

The Today Show isn’t alone in offering a deal for the Moto X. The Ellen DeGeneres Show is doing something similar, just not as good as the other one. This deal will give you a coupon code for 50% off an on-contract Moto X and 30% off without a contract. But the catch is that you have to be among the first 5,000 to request the a code. I’m not too sure that many Ellen fans are yearning for a Moto X, so you should be in the clear to get a code. Hit the break for instructions (they’re the same as before).

To take advantage of the deal, you have to:

  1. Fill out this form and put “ellen50″ in the top box that asks for the registration code.
  2. Put the rest of your information in the form.
  3. Select which deal you would like and hit “Submit”
  4. Wait for your code to arrive and start designing!

Haven’t gotten your hands on a Chromecast yet? Well, now is probably the best time to do so. At Amazon and Best Buy, Google’s HDMI dongle is available for just $29.99, down from the usual $35 price. And if you are a member of Amazon Student, you can take off an additional $5 so you just have to pay $24. If you are on the fence, take a look at what Google plans on doing with it in 2014. And for now, it seems that more developers are jumping at the opportunity to develop for the cheap, yet powerful device.

Did Christmas shopping burn a whole in your pocket? If so, don’t worry because Amazon is offering a payment plan to get their Kindle Fire HDX. Both the 7-inch and 8.9-inch models are available through the plan. Eligible customers can pay for the device over the four months, with the cost being divided among them. The WiFi models will set you back $57 and $94.75 each month, respectively. The best of all? The payment plan is interest free.

To take advantage of this offer, sign in to your account and head over to the listing for the model you want. From there, you will see if you are eligible. Order the device and make your first payment. Then Amazon will charge you every 90 days. Make sure you have enough funds because if you don’t, Amazon will block your Kindle Fire HDX from their content and suspend your online account. Also, the offer ends by Christmas day.

[Deal] Grab the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom for as little as a penny at Amazon

The Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom is not a device for the typical smartphone buyer, but for those who are interested in it, Amazon has a great deal if you are willing to be tied to AT&T for a couple years. For individuals signing up for a new 2-year contract with AT&T, Amazon will sell you the Galaxy S4 Zoom for a mere penny. If you happen to already have an account with AT&T and want to buy the device as an upgrade, it will run you $49.99. Both of these prices are better than what you can do buying direct from AT&T.  If you are not interested in a 2-year contract, Amazon will set you back $599.99 for the Galaxy S4 Zoom, which is about $70 more than what you could get it for from AT&T.

The Galaxy S4 Zoom most closely matches the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini for most of the hardware. The exception being the big camera Samsung has grafted onto a cell phone. For photographers, the Galaxy S4 Zoom offers a 16MP camera with 10x optical zoom and an f-stop range from 3.1 – 6.3. A xenon flash is included in the device as well.

Microsoft negotiating massive deal with Samsung, $1 billion on the table

According to Russian Blogger Eldar Murtazin, Microsoft is offering Samsung $1 billion to support their Windows Phone operating system by manufacturing devices. As we all know, Samsung is the leading Android OEM by a landslide. But on the Windows Phone front, Microsoft is struggling to have a company come forward that isn’t Nokia (who may be releasing a device based on Android). Nokia was involved in something similar with Microsoft when Steve Ballmer and the guys up in Redmond decided to pay more than $250 million every quarter to keep the Finnish manufacturer with Windows Phone. Samsung likes to spread its name, so escalating Windows Phone production wouldn’t be out of the ordinary. » Read the rest
