Listen up if you’re a Galaxy Nexus owner folks because we’ve got a doozy for you. We all know the standard 1800 mAh battery is average by most standards and the 2100mAh extended battery is only slightly better, so many of you may have been longing for something you can feel confident in when it comes to battery life. Sure we’ve highlighted some hefty alternatives, but they may come at a premium price. Well friends I come bearing great news: CellularFactory is listing a sweet 3,800mAh extended battery for wait for it… wait for it— a whopping $13.99. That’s right folks, a 3,800mAh extended battery is available for under $14. There’s more too: if you use code GOFF5SW during your purchase, you get an extra 5% off. There were earlier reports indicating the extended battery was available for $7.99, but we wanted to double-check and confirm this for you all, but found the battery is in fact available for $13.99 only.
Keep in mind this extended battery does not feature NFC capabilities, so you’re out of luck if you’re looking for some Beam action. It might be a negative for some, but I think the vast majority of those interested in this battery will gladly give that up for an improved battery life at that steal of a price.

Mark February 11 on your calendars because T-Mobile is going to have one of those really big sales. This time they are celebrating Valentine’s Day just in case you need to get that special someone a really nice Android phone or tablet. Of course there’s nothing stopping you from taking advantage of this promo for yourself. Notice how I said “get” instead of “buy” because this sale is all about FREE.
T-Mobile is giving you the chance to pickup their latest 4G smartphones and select tablets for free. There is one minor catch, and that it’s free after rebate. You will of course need to sign up with a new 2-year contract with either the Value or Classic plan, and both new and existing customers are eligible. So if you’re in the market for the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S II, The HTC Amaze 4G, or the Huawei Springboard, this Saturday is the day to grab one.
Full press release after the break:
Starting February 5th, Sprint customers should check their account to see if they are eligible for a fantastic deal. On an individual basis, Sprint will select some accounts to receive a discount of $25, $50, $100 to upgrade to a new phone with a standard 2-year contract. This discount is in addition to the normal upgrade prices. If you’re flagged in Sprint’s system, you will receive an email or paper mail notification. The special will run from February to March 21st, so if you’re coming up on an upgrade, you should definitely look into this.
Sprint is certainly trying to keep their customers loyal. Perhaps this is an attempt to offset a possible policy change. Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
Planning to upgrade to a new phone by the end of the year and buy a gadget or two while you’re at it? Well you’re in luck because Best Buy is offering a heck of a promotion where they are offering a $50 gift card when customers upgrade to a new phone at any one of the Best Buy stores by December 31, 2012. Naturally there’s a catch— customers need to reserve their gift card by entering their mobile number and email address by Sunday, February 12. And you won’t actually see the gift card until you actually go into a store and upgrade your phone at that time. Still, a $50 gift card is still an awesome incentive, don’t you think?

Amazon is at it yet again with another great deal for customers interested in grabbing a great phone.

That means you’ll be able to grab the phone featuring 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM and of course the custom Beats Audio Headphones for less than some Beats By Dre Headphones. If you’re a current customer and it’s time to upgrade that old Droid X finally, Amazon is also offering the upgrade to you for a mere $159.99, which is still quite a bargain. Don’t forget kids Amazon is offering free 2-day shipping when you order the phone by 3PM (Monday-Friday).
If or when you do go to Amazon to grab the phone, be sure to let us know how you like phone and thank us in the Comments section. Naturally, you’re all going to rave about the killer Beats Audio headphones and EQ setting on the phone, right?

A little birdy told us a white DROID RAZR was on the way for the Holidays. Earlier Motorola and Verizon officially announced the DROID XYBOARD tablets, and as part of that press release, they officially announced the DROID RAZR in white. They didn’t confirm the release date, but did confirm that it will be priced at $299.99 with a 2-year contract.
They also confirmed the promotion we told you about yesterday, but added a little more. If you buy a DROID RAZR before December 25, you will get $50 off select Motorola accessories and $100 of either DROID XYBOARD.
