Amazon is now selling the Google Chromecast media dongle for just $30 and providing free shipping to go along with it. Previous deals have offered this HDMI dongle for the same price, but with heavy shipping prices. The Chromecast dongle was originally priced at $35 during launch, so this is a savings of $5 along with free shipping, so it’s possibly the best deal you can get right now.
With Google opening up Chromecast to third party developers, the possibilities are endless in terms of apps and new features. Only yesterday we saw Koushik Dutta a.k.a Koush demonstrate Android mirroring on a Chromecast.
So if you’re looking to get yourself a decent home media player with a ton of options to play around with, you can’t go wrong with the Chromecast. Right out of the box, users will be able to stream content over a Wi-Fi or local network to a television using Chromecast. Users can also mirror the Google Chrome browser from their computer onto Chromecast using Tab Casting which is currently in Beta.

Ever since Google introduced Chromecast app compatibility to all sorts of new developers starting in December, I have found it to be one of my favorite tech products all over again. But now that it is truly open to everyone, with the SDK released to the wild, I think the sky is the limit in terms of new apps, new functionality, and new ways to experience this amazing HDMI dongle.
So in case you haven’t yet purchased a Chromecast, we thought Amazon’s new price might grab your attention. For $30 and free standard shipping, you can have Google’s dongle (lulz).

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Samsung’s premier line of super high-end tablets are finally available for sale in the US. Generous buyers can now pickup the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro and/or the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro for their special someone (even if that special someone is yourself) from a multitude of major retailers. For your convenience, we went ahead and linked to a few of the tabs’ listings below.
- Note Pro 12.2: $850 (64 GB) – Amazon (March 9th) | Best Buy (Black/White) | Samsung
- Note Pro 12.2: $750 (32 GB) – Amazon | Best Buy (Black/White) | Samsung
- Tab Pro 12.2: $650 (32 GB) – Amazon | Best Buy (Black/White)
- Tab Pro 10.1: $500 (16 GB) – Amazon | Best Buy (Black/White) | Samsung
- Tab Pro 8.4: $400 (16 GB) - Amazon | Best Buy (Black/White) | Samsung
Samsung’s press release originally mentioned that the larger Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 wouldn’t arrive until March and it looks like the same goes for the Note Pro 12.2 64GB). What’s odd is the Tab Pro 12.2 appears to be in stock on Amazon, but still isn’t available for purchase quite yet at Best Buy (although the listing is now live).
The most decked out model of the bunch if the Note Pro 12.2, coming equipped with a 2K (2560 x 1600) display, 3GB of RAM, an Exynos octa-core processor, and a 9,500mAh battery. If you’re looking for an LTE equipped model, the Verizon Wireless version will be launching one in the near future, so keep an eye for that.
If you still need a closer look at these tabs, we’ve embedded our hands-on video from last month’s CES 2014 below. Anyone considering picking one of these bad boys up?
Samsung Galaxy NotePRO and Galaxy TabPRO tablets available in the U.S. via Amazon, Best Buy and others
The recently announced Samsung Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 and the Galaxy TabPRO tablets are now available for purchase in the U.S. off contract and unlocked from several popular retailers. Amazon, Newegg, Best Buy and most other retailers have officially started sales of the popular Samsung tablets. As expected, these tablets aren’t going to go easy on your wallets. The Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 is only available in the 32GB configuration at the moment and costs a whopping $749.99. The 10.1 inch Galaxy TabPRO (16GB) costs $499.99, while the 16GB Galaxy TabPRO 8.4 costs $399.99 although it’s only available in White at the moment.
All three tablets carry 2560 x 1600 resolution displays, 3GB of RAM, an 8MP rear camera, the Samsung Exynos 5 Octa chip (no LTE) and Android 4.4 KitKat. Carriers in the U.S. are expected to launch the 4G LTE capable variants of these tablets soon, so it might be wise to wait until those variants arrive if you’re looking for data usage on the go. The storage limitations on the tablets shouldn’t be a concern at all as all the PRO tablets carry support for microSD card slots under the hood, so you can expand storage whenever needed.
Best Buy – White Galaxy TabPRO 8.4

Amazon has announced the purchase of a very high profile studio that was recently responsible for one of Xbox One’s exclusive launch titles — Killer Instinct. The studio is Double Helix, and Amazon has confirmed that they’ve added the company to their portfolio to continue to deliver innovative gaming experiences to their customers in the years to come.
Amazon has done light work in the gaming realm thus far, but nothing far past a few mobile titles for Kindle Fire owners. The addition of Double Helix adds some serious girth, though, and the company is looking to get even better with a recruiting event going down February 13th. So what is it all leading up to?
We can’t be too sure, but recent rumors of an alleged Android-based gaming console made by Amazon are starting to make more sense. Said rumors have persisted since mid-2013, though there’s no indication as to when Amazon would look to introduce it. For what it’s worth, we’ve been hearing rumors about an Amazon phone for years and have yet to see anything take form.
But this move seems to be solid indication that Amazon is looking to take a serious stab at gaming in some way, shape or form. We just hope it doesn’t take an eternity to see what exactly they’ve supposedly been working on.
Giving fodder to rumors of the retail giant’s excursion into the gaming industry, Amazon has just acknowledged news of its latest acquisition. However, its purchase of game developer Double Helix may not necessarily be evidence of its rumored game console ambitions.
The game console industry, once the purview of Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo, is experiencing a slight shift in currents with the arrival of the likes of OUYA and Steam Machines. In the Android world alone, there are numerous active efforts to bring mobile gaming into the living room as well. One of latest darlings seem to be Amazon, who has been rumored to be working on its own Android gaming console. It’s somewhat hard to give this much credence considering Amazon has also been rumored to be making smartphones and set-top boxes, neither of which have materialized. At least, not yet.
News of the acquisition wasn’t meant to go public yet but was accidentally leaked from a recruitment event set for later this month at Los Angeles. Since the cat is out of the bag anyway, Amazon chose to confirm the purchase. Details of the acquisition are unknown though it has been said that Double Helix’s employees will continue to work in Orange County but under Amazon’s supervision.
This business move could mean an eventual game console, or it could simply mean an eventual rain of games with Amazon’s name slapped on top. The official statement talks about building innovative games for customers, which doesn’t necessarily mean delivering hardware to play it on. Amazon has mostly been quite focused on its business of delivering content instead of venturing into devices outside of its tried and true Kindle readers and tablets, which seems to work for it just fine, at least for now.
The latest Chrome OS laptop to go on sale is the Toshiba Chromebook. Announced back in September, it is available through Toshiba’s online store or through some retailers including Amazon. If you choose to go with Toshiba’s online store, this Chromebook will set you back $299.99; however, Amazon is carrying it for $279.99. Inside is Intel’s Celeron Processor 2955U (Haswell). There are two USB 3.0 ports and one HDMI port. On the device’s page, Toshiba claims you can get up to nine hours of battery life. Not too bad, right?
Hit the source link if you are interested in picking one up. Remember, Amazon is selling it for $20 less!

There are literally thousands of games on Android, but very few of them involve spaceships and red shirts; and no, there isn’t a Star Trek game on Android yet. That game of course is Star Command, a management-cross-real-time-strategy game that includes facets from games like the Sims and Game Dev Story. Well, if you were ever put off by the game costing money (specifically $2.99), you have no excuse now as Star Command is available for free on Amazon right now.
We reviewed it late last year (which you can read here), and while there were a few things I could see required improvements, I thoroughly enjoyed my time playing it, particularly as it’s quite a unique experience on Android right now. Not many games have such a great art style, engaging gameplay and a story, which while short, was quite engaging throughout the campaign. It’s got my tick for a recommendation; the best thing about Star Command being free is that you get access to the entire game as there are no in-app purchases. So hit the links below which will take you to Amazon and to infinity and beyond! Oh, wrong movie…
Has anyone else played Star Command: what did you think of it? Let us know if you agree with our review.
Prime Instant Video added more content; still no Kindle sales numbers
Retailer, online services seller and Kindle maker Amazon has just released its Q4 2013 earnings, and it's another huge holiday quarter. In the final three months of 2013 Amazon posted $25.59 billion in sales, up 20 percent year-over-year. The quarter also saw Amazon post a relatively-rare operating income of $510 million, up 26 percent year-over-year, with net income being $239 million.
As for the non-financial quarterly news, Amazon is reporting a record-setting holiday season for its Amazon Prime shipping service, which now has "tens of millions of members." Prime Instant video added over 7,000 movies and TV shows to its catalog, now totaling 40,000 items. Moving to Kindle Fire, Amazon says that response time for its new Mayday help button was just 9 seconds on Christmas day even under the influx of new devices. As always, it has not released any Kindle sales numbers.
As HTML5 fast becomes the standard for more things than just websites, monetization becomes a point of interest. With Google’s important move to bring HTML5 apps in the Play Store, the move away from a web-only existence for HTML5 is rounding into shape. While HTML5 isn’t the silver bullet, it does provide a good avenue for development, and Amazon is making their App Store an attractive avenue for Developers to potentially strike gold.
Amazon has now made it possible for Developers to set pricing for their HTML5 web apps in the App Store. While this sounds a lot like the Google news from earlier, it’s really a touch different. The Google news had to do with repackaging HTML5 web apps for use on Andorid and iOS, essentially bringing them to mobile. With Amazon, they’re taking web apps and monetizing them, much like Google allows with the Chrome Web Store.
In the spirit of clarity, we’ll keep in mind that Amazon also doesn’t have two app stores. Their singular App Store hosted both Android apps for Kindle devices as well as web apps. The web apps were automatically set to be free, but now Amazon is letting Developers set a price. The upside for Developers is big, but could lead to confusion for consumers.
Web apps can be a murky field to navigate, as some really are robust apps while others are little more than dressed-down web pages. Games and productivity apps will likely do well via the App Store for Amazon as HTML5, with others perhaps cheapening the effect. Amazon, in their announcement, heavily promote the “Free App of the Day” as being open to HTML5 Developers, now that they can charge.
It’s an odd situation, really. By offering to promote the apps as free for a day, Amazon is gently asking that Developers start charging. Amazon, of course, gets a piece of all app sales. It’s not sneaky or devious by any means, but is actually a slick monetization strategy for both Amazon and Developers. Luckily, Amazon is typically good with refunds, so if you should find yourself having paid for an app that was just a mobile version of a website or something, they’d likely do the right thing.

The Sony Xperia E1 is being listed for sale in the UK. Though not expected to be available until March 10, the handset is listed on the Amazon UK site. Pre-orders are now being taken, and keep a pretty impressive price point. If Sony does their diligence and brings this one to the US, it may actually have a chance to challenge the Moto G.
Clove UK is currently asking around £134.99 for the device, which translates to about $225. Amazon is selling it for a slightly higher £149.99, which is about $250. the Amazon German site is listing the device for $190 for the single SIM variety, and $204 for the dual SIM.
The Xperia E1 isn’t the sleekest device around, coming in at 12mm thick, nearly double what we’ve come to expect. It’s got a 4.3-inch 480 x 800 display, a 3.2MP rear camera, Snapdragon 200(!) processor at 1.2GHz, 512MB RAM, 4GB Memory on board with MicroSD Card support, and a 1,750mAh battery.
Specs being what they are, this one is definitely lacking in just about every category. The price, however, is approachable, and a good option for someone who just needs a decent smartphone at a good price. It runs Android 4.3, which isn’t great, but for the consumer who would purchase this device, it probably won’t matter much.
We’re not over the moon about this one, but we do like Sony’s involvement in the mid-range market. We so often think of Sony as a high-end OEM with nothing to offer the const-conscious consumer, but this device could change that. We hope to see this one stateside, as a healthy relationship with carriers could drive this into a ton of hands for Sony.

Whether or not you subscribe to the idea of Android in the living room, the console race is still going strong. Ouya is trying hard to build their base offering into a powerhouse, and others like MadCatz are also bringing the promise of something bigger for Android consoles. Those center on gaming, but if Amazon has their way, you’ll forget about the rest in short order.
A new report suggests Amazon is shopping a console design around to “senior publishing sources”, and it’s running Android. The device is said to be about the size and shape of a PlayStation 1 after the redesign, and using both Android and iOS games as demos. There was no word on if the console somehow can utilize both iOS and Android games natively, or if the games were cross platform offerings.
The console design is likely to change via Amazon’s Lab 126, where so much odd news comes from. In addition to gaming, the console may also bring Amazon’s various other offerings to your living room, like music and visual media. The console is said to bring music, TV, and movies to the forefront in addition to games, with special attention paid to Prime.
This is a continuation of various other reports of Amazon’s intent to create a set-top box for the living room, which some believe will be branded as “Firetube”. In addition to the above information, Amazon is also said to be developing their own games, and hiring for various positions regarding gaming. The console is said to be offered at a sub-$300 price point, but there was no specific timeline offered for release outside of “2014”. Between the early hardware build and current state of development, we’d have to think sometime around the holiday shopping rush seems an appropriate timeframe, should we see it this year.
It seems like every few months a rumor like this pops up. Current rumors have Amazon pegged as releasing a media and gaming device sized at about the same dimensions as a PSOne. The pre-production box is said to be gray in color and will run Android. Assuming this device is real, we can also expect to see that flavor of Android to be the forked version Amazon has on its Kindles.
The device will be a set top box designed for playing games, streaming movies, and television. It could very well have a tie in with Amazon’s Prime service. Pricing for the device has it pegged below $300. How far below that price point is anyone’s guess. Given that the Roku boxes, Apple TV and Chromecast are priced well below that mark, Amazon could be dead in the water if the box is priced higher than that. Of course this is all speculation.

The Galaxy Note 3 is an amazing device, and perhaps the best phablet despite having a screen smaller than those of the oversized competition. However, at $349.99 for a two-year contract, it’s not at all cheap, but if you’re willing to open a new account and live with Sprint’s service, then you can currently buy Samsung’s popular phablet for just $112.49. That’s an incredibly low price tag with more than $200 struck off the actual price, with free shipping with Amazon Prime, for both black and white models.
If you’re already a Sprint customer, then the deal isn’t that great, as it will cost you $279.99 for a two-year contract. But then again, any discount is a good discount, so this is one deal that you should really take advantage of if you’re looking for a new phablet. For those that need a recap, the Galaxy Note 3 sports a 5.7-inch 1080p Super AMOLED display, 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 quad-core SoC, 3GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel rear camera, Wi-Fi, HSPA+, LTE, NFC and GPS connectivity, 32GB of storage and a microSD slot, a 3,200 mAh battery, and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean with Samsung’s TouchWiz topping, which comes with mightily useful features like Multi Window and various apps for use with the S Pen stylus.

The Galaxy Note 3 is one of the more desirable high-end phones on the market at the moment, especially if you like your mobile hardware big and pleathery. If you also like your service from Sprint, then Amazon’s wireless store has a heck of a deal for new customers: a Galaxy Note 3 for $112.49 on a subsidized plan. That’s more than $200 off the retail price. Black and white models are available, and shipping is free with Amazon Prime.

The Galaxy S4 S-View Flip Cover shined new light on covers with that little flip door, so much that they became a hot commodity in the past year. Now there is a slightly newer version that allows you to wirelessly charge your device using that Qi charging technology. Samsung already made this cover available to users with a Galaxy Note 3, and adding the Qi feature to the backplate was one of the smartest things they could’ve done.
You can snatch up the flip cover for the pretty low price of $55 dollars over on Amazon. If you have been waiting to purchase this cover, now is the time to do so. Hit the link down below to head over to the Amazon page. Let us know if you purchased one.
Been considering the Moto G on Verizon, a prepaid phone for $100 that can access their 3G network with no contract? What if you could grab it for $20 cheaper? Well, you can for a limited time today on Amazon. And when I say “limited,” I mean limited. The deal is a lightning deal that only runs for a couple of hours or until stock runs out. (As of the time of this post, 66% has been claimed.)
If you want the Moto G on Verizon, or are curious to try out a phone that has received an enormous amount of buzz because of its combination of low price and decent specs, this is your chance to grab one for $79.99. You better hurry.
Update: The deal is sold out.
Amazon has something up their sleeve. Invitations for a recruiting event have reportedly been sent out for an event in Cambridge, MA, though details are not available. The invitation, first found by The Boston Globe, only hints at something big from Amazon — but what?
The invitation is unsurprisingly coy, and only hints at Amazon’s delivery of digital media in a different way. They go on to note they’ll “disrupt the current marketplace”, but caution that the program or device is a version one offering. Amazon also says they have “teams in various locations partnering on this project”. The invitation goes on to say Amazon believes the new product “will be even bigger than Kindle”. What is going on, here?
We have Amazon hinting at digital media delivery in a way that will be “disruptive”, and saying whatever is going to happen will be bigger than Kindle in their eyes. It could be their rumored streaming device, which we’ve heard is called “Firetube”. It could be a new smartphone from Amazon, or series of them. Remember those weird rumors of the Amazon phone being 3D? We doubt it’s that, but who knows. The invitation is from the “Kindle New Initiatives” team, so it sounds like a device.
With respect to doubt, we’ll remember that this is a recruiting event. The sensational language is probably meant to get prospective Developers giddy about whatever is being shown off. We’ve no doubt something new will be there, and we’re hopeful to get some leaked pics and details from it, but a blind version one product doesn’t get our juices flowing. It sounds like Amazon will show off a prototype, and with digital media being their bailiwick outside of selling goods online, that leaves a lot to the imagination.

Amazon is running a promotion that slashes $30 off of all of their Kindle Fire tablets as a “thanks to customers for voting Amazon #1 in customer satisfaction” yet again. The deal includes discounts off of the brand new Kindle Fire HDX models (both 7 and 8.9) and the regular Kindle Fire (both 7 and 8.9). The Fire HDX 7 can be had for as little as $199, while the HDX 8.9 drops to $349. The regular Kindle Fire HD drops to an insanely low $109 price, which the HD 8.9 slides in at just under $200. Not bad deals.
The HDX models are Amazon’s top tier line that can compete with almost any other tablet on the planet in terms of specs. We’re talking high-res displays (1920×1200), Snapdragon 800 processors, the newest version of Amazon’s Android skin, custom Dolby Audio, “state-of-the-art” dual-band, dual-antenna Wi-Fi, and their 24-7 Mayday video support chat.
At checkout, use the code “MAYDAY30″ to see the discount.
Amazon is offering a good deal on its entire lineup of Kindle Fire tablets as it is slashing $30 off its prices until tomorrow with the use of a coupon code. This deal is applicable on the Kindle Fire HD as well as the two Kindle Fire HDX tablets. This means you can get the 7 inch Kindle Fire HDX for as little as $199 and the 8.9 inch version for just $349. The 2012 Kindle Fire HD can be snatched up for just $109 after discount. Amazon is offering this promotion as a thank you to the customers for voting the online retailer #1 in terms of customer satisfaction. Or maybe they just want to move more units of these tablets as the sales die down a bit after the holiday season.
But given how low the profit margins are with these tablets, it’s commendable of Amazon to introduce this promotion to its customers. The offer is valid until the 11th of January 11:59PM PST, so you have the whole of tomorrow to think about making the purchase.Make sure you use the coupon code MAYDAY30 to avail the $30 discount on your purchase.

Catch up on the full series ahead of the movie debut in March
If you're looking to catch up on the Veronica Mars series before the official movie debut on March 14th, Amazon is the place to go as they are now the exclusive online-only subscription home for streaming the TV series. The offering comes thanks to an agreement with Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution for access to all three seasons of the series starring the lovely Kristen Bell.
“The Veronica Mars series has been popular on DVD and Amazon Instant Video for years, so we know how much Amazon customers love this iconic television show,” said Brad Beale, Director of Digital Video Content Acquisition.
Amazon knows how to pick out the stuff folks want. The Veronica Mars movie was a Kickstarter project started by Rob Thomas and Kristen Bell and ended up collecting $5.7 million from fans with $2 million of that having been contributed within the first 10 hours.
Usually priced at a steep $349.99, the Toq smartwatch from Qualcomm is quite the high-end device. With its Mirasol display, to its quirky wristband that you must cut in order to size to your wrist, the watch is being adopted at a steady pace it would seem for anyone willing to drop that kind of cash.
In a sweet move, Qualcomm is now offering the device through its website and Amazon for the price of just $299 as a CES promo. That’s a solid $50 off full retail.
To celebrate the International Consumer Electronics Show, taking place in Las Vegas this week, we are delighted to announce a special offer of $50 off the regular retail price of the black Qualcomm® Toq™ smartwatch.
This price promotion will be available this week only, January 6-11, 2014.*
If you have been debating the Toq’s price and was waiting for a deal on them, now would be the time. Although, I personally would hold off until we know for sure what Pebble plans to announce this morning at CES.
The Qualcomm Toq smartwatch has just seen its first price reduction since it was launched last month. The smartwatch now costs just $299.99, which is what Samsung charges for the barely successful Galaxy Gear smartwatch. Users can now buy the Toq with the discounted pricing either through Qualcomm’s official page or via Amazon. This appears to be a CES special promotion and will last only until the 11th of January or until stocks last, so users will have to pay the standard $349.99 from next week onwards.
Unfortunately, the smartwatch is still only sold in Black with no White variant in sight. We’re guessing Qualcomm is having trouble with manufacturing the white variant, which explains the unexpected delay. We hope Qualcomm launches the White variant as soon as possible, so as to offer potential buyers a choice. The Qualcomm Toq is one of the better smartwatches available in the market today along with the Pebble, so you can’t go wrong with one of these.
