Happy Thanksgiving to all of our American readers! To get us in the mood for the day ahead, a couple of vendors on eBay have launched two new deals to contribute to the official Black Friday sale. For the next two days, you’ll be able to pick up Google’s latest flagship 7-inch tablet, the Nexus 7, for the discounted price of $189.99 for the 16GB model ($40 off), and $209.99 for the 32GB (that’s a full $60 off the retail price).
Google announced its first budget-friendly 10-inch tablet, the Nexus 10, back in October, 2012, and a month later it was available to purchase from the Play Store with a price tag of $399 for the 16GB model and $499 for the 32GB variant. However, now, as part of the Black Friday sale, a seller on eBay is offering a brand new Nexus 10 32GB coupled with a $100 prepaid Visa Gift Card for $399.
eBay’s Black Friday sale is set to start a day early this year, on Thursday, November 28 — and it includes a whole bunch of tablets, smartphones, consoles, and cameras. So whether you’re into Android or iOS, there’s a great deal to be had, such as an original iPad mini for $239, a Nexus 7 for $199, and the new iPad Air for $469.99.
Starting today, residents in the U.S. will be able to purchase Google’s first Wi-Fi streaming dongle, the Chromecast, from Motorola’s official website. The newly Google-owned company is listing the device as an officially accessory for the Moto X and Moto G, and can be had for $35.
Dolphin, a popular third-party browser for Android, just got another big update that makes several improvements and introduces new features. In addition to a new look, the app now boasts a customizable home screen with over 60 speed dial slots, a new Web App Store, Flash support, and more.
Looking for a cheap Android-powered tablet? British retail giant Argos is currently selling the 16GB Nexus 7 for just £120 (approx. $182) via its Argos Outlet eBay store. That’s £50 off its regular retail price. All devices are refurbished and come with a 12-month warranty.
Google Glass is probably one of the most interesting pieces of technology you’ll see this year, so it’s no wonder people are scrambling to get their hands on a pair. Unfortunately, it seems Google’s in little rush to get them out the door, but you don’t necessarily have to wait for them to hit Best Buy before you can buy your own.
All you need is an eBay account and a hoard of cash you have no use for.
Verizon Wireless has helped a critical infrastructure company based in the United States catch one of its developers paying Chinese workers to do his job so that he could browse the Internet all day. “Bob” outsourced all of his work to China and paid the workers just a fraction of his six-figure salary so that he could spend his time on sites like Reddit, Facebook, LinkedIn, and eBay.
Verizon has revealed the fascinating story in a new case study.
You probably didn’t need Ebay to remind you that the Google Nexus 4 is in high demand, but that’s exactly what they felt the need to do. Ebay is urging sellers to take advantage of strong buyer demand for the Nexus 4, and in essence, feeding the shark frenzy of scumbags looking to take advantage of those who actually want to use the device.
