The 2013 Nexus 7 might be relatively old in the market by now, but it’s still considered the best tablet in the budget segment. And today, Woot! is offering a sweet deal on the device with a price of just $129.99 for the 16GB model of the tablet. The deal is only applicable until the end of the day or until stocks last, so there’s not much time left. It must be noted that this is the manufacturer refurbished version of the Nexus 7, which explains the remarkably low pricing. The Play Store has the tablet listed for $229, so...

  While other smart watches have come to market since its campaign, the Pebble is arguably the first to get mass adoption. And it’s the only watch that works cross-platform. And while Pebble doesn’t have any new hardware yet (that we know of), they are updating the software with a lot of improvements with version 2.5 today. The first improvement is that emojis can now be viewed on the Pebble’s screen, fixing the issue of the square boxes being there instead. There is also a new Compass app that can be downloaded...

Just as the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 makes its way to the shelves of major American carriers, a new deal on eBay has popped up carrying the device at a discounted price. The refurbished model of Samsung’s 10.5 inch AMOLED tablet is selling for just $399.99 which is a $100 discount on the regular asking price. The device also comes with 1 year of warranty, which is quite rare for a refurbished unit. Bear in mind, this version of the tablet carries the Exynos 5 Octa chipset, so there’s no LTE support on offer. The storage is 16GB,...

America’s largest carrier Verizon has just unveiled the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5. The tablet was announced by AT&T just yesterday, so the timing couldn’t have been better from Big Red. But unlike AT&T, Verizon is only selling the 10.5 inch model, with no word on the 8.4 inch variant as of yet. As far as the pricing is concerned, customers should be looking to shell out $599.99 without a contract or $499.99 with a two year agreement from the carrier. Verizon specifies that the tablet will come with support for...

The countdown for the Nexus 9 has officially begun with a new source claiming that the tablet will be officially announced on October 16. There’s no word on when the tablet will be available for purchase, but it goes without saying that Google will not want to wait long to bring the device to the market. The information comes from Paul O’Brien of the MoDaCo fame who is familiar with the HTC community. The Nexus 9 will mark a major upgrade in the Nexus tablet lineup considering the hardware it is expected to pack. If past reports...

Sony Mobile’s American wing has just set up pre-registration pages for the Xperia Z3, the Xperia Z3 Compact as well as the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact. Although there’s no word on the release date or pricing, a pre-registration page is usually a good indicator that the devices would hit the markets soon. Verizon is expected to be carrying the Xperia Z3 sometime soon, so the listing has come at the right time. Sony has never had a large presence in the U.S. with its devices only selling via T-Mobile as of now. However, by expanding...

It takes a good bit of courage, as well as a slight dose of desperation, to knowingly turn a blind eye to the specific guidelines set by your idol, mentor and forerunner, to whom you basically owe everything. “No one is going to buy a phone you can’t get your hand around” said Steve Jobs in 2010. “Bigger than bigger” said Tim Cook upon unveiling the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus, at last acknowledging the superiority of the phablet. Sorry, the “iPhablet”. Bold move, when Cupertino knew full well it was exposing...

Amazon has just announced the updated version of the 8.9 inch Kindle Fire HDX and the 7 inch Kindle Fire HD along with a new Kids Edition model. E-book enthusiasts will be pleased to know that the company’s Kindle reader lineup has also seen the addition of two new devices with a standard touchscreen packing Kindle and Kindle Voyage for $79 and $199 respectively. The Kindle Fire tablets will be running the latest Fire OS 4 UI skin on top of Android. The Kindle Fire HD comes in 6 and 7 inch models, both featuring a resolution of...
