Pre-owned Verizon Galaxy Nexus on sale for $230 off-contract

As we inch closer to the impending launch of LG’s Nexus 4, Verizon has put the Galaxy Nexus on sale. Last year’s Nexus smartphone is now available for $230, with no need to sign up for a painful new contract. Keep in mind the units in question are “Certified Pre-owned”, but Verizon claims that each phone has passed over 100 quality checkpoints to assure the utmost condition. And, each device comes with a full 1-year warranty, meaning if something happens to the device, Verizon will replace it free of charge.

Sure, the Galaxy Nexus may not be the latest and greatest, or even sport relatively fresh hardware, but at just $230 it’s difficult to pass up this opportunity. For comparison, Sony’s unlocked Xperia Activ –which sports a single core processor, a 3-inch display (320×480) and 3G– costs $250. Add this to the fact that this deal won’t affect your contract or future upgrades, and you’re left with one incredible deal. Hit the source link below before they’re sold out.

HP TouchPad 32 GB for under $200, courtesy of Woot.com

tagged , ,

 

Remember when everyone was frantically looking for an HP TouchPad during their fire sale? I must have called 5 different Best Buy stores in my area with no luck. I have to say that, even today, I still love the beauty and finesse of WebOS. Of course the latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich offers a very similar charm, but WebOS was clearly ahead of its time. That said, if you were burned from the fire sale (no pun intended) and would still consider a TouchPad for a good price, then look no further than Woot.com.

For today only, Woot is offering refurbished 32 GB HP TouchPads for only $194.99. In case anyone has forgotten, the HP TouchPad specs include a 9.7-inch 1024×768 IPS display, dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera, and let’s not forget that gorgeous WebOS software under the hood. Many TouchPad owners have taken to the development streets and have flashed custom Android ROMs on their TPs.

So no matter what software you fancy, $200 for the hardware alone is a great deal. Hurry and hit the source link below to get the goods before they run out!

[Deal] Get the Logitech Revue from Newegg for $73.99

by Jack Holt on
tagged , , , , ,

With Google continuing its push into the TV market and not letting Google TV die it’s hard being an early adopter of new technology. The Logitech Revue is a prime example of an early adoption device that didn’t receive much fanfare. The once $299 device dropped to just $99 in hopes that the product would move. Well if you’re hesitant about Google TV and are not wanting to drop a serious chunk of change on a device then this deal might be for you. Newegg is selling a refurbished model of the Revue for just $73.99.

This box goes beyond Apple TV and the Roku media streaming option by packing in the ability to download apps, having a web browser and coming with a keyboard. It was knocked, however, for lacking support for Hulu and having a lack of app selection options. Netflix and Pandora seem to be the only highlight in regards to media sources.

The device was updated to Google TV 2.0 in hopes to remedy the fully admitted flop the device was. However even though it was reported that the device was sold out it’s still safe to say the device did not fair well. So why would you want one you ask? Well because it’s yet another Android device that can be tinkered with. I know that appeals to some Android fanatics out there. While I am waiting on the next batch of Google TV devices to arrive, it’s hard not to jump on this deal.

T-Mobile Bringing Another BOGO with Magenta Deal Days Next Weekend

One of the things I love about T-Mobile is that if you’re interested in purchasing a new smartphone on the network but want to get it for a great deal you never have to wait too long for T-Mo to break out a buy one get one deal.  Between May 18th and May 26th you can snag several devices as part of the offer such as the T-Mobile MyTouch & MyTouch Q, Galaxy S II, Galaxy S Blaze 4g, Exhibit II 4G and the HTC Amaze 4G for you and a loved one perhaps? Of course, the deal is only valid for a new two year agreement on the network and will most likely require a mail in rebate.  We’re still digging a little to find out whether or not the One S is going to be a part of the offer as well as whether or not one has the option to upgrade if you’re currently on the network already.  Stay tuned.

If you live in the UK and are itching for one of HTC’s new beasts, you may want to venture over to your nearest Vodafone store today. The UK mobile carrier has reduced the on-contract prices for both the HTC One X and One S smartphones. The One X smartphone will be available for free on 2-year contracts of £36 or more which gets you a cool 600 minutes, unlimited texts and 1GB of data. The One S smartphone will be available for free on 2-year contracts of £31 or more which gives you 300 minutes, unlimited texting and 500MB of data. Not too shabby at all I’d say.

Each phone are among the hottest Androids on the planet, so one has to wonder why they’re being listed for so low of a price. Perhaps it has to do with a certain announcement happening this week? Who knows and who cares— customers are just interested in deals on quality devices and you can bet that lots of folks will be interested in grabbing one of these devices now that they have a chance to get it at so low of a price. Naturally steals like this don’t last for long— Vodafone is offering both devices at their low, low prices for a short time only, which ends May 13th.
