Cyber Monday deals on Android devices don’t get much better than this little cracker from Motorola. For just six hours, the company is slashing $140 off its new Moto X, bringing its price down to just $359 off-contract. You’ll also be able to get the device on contract with Verizon for just a penny.

Football fans shopping for a new smartphone need look no further than Verizon’s new Moto X, which is designed to look and feel like a leather football… one that carries a Verizon logo. The handset is available to order now, priced at $119.99 — the same price as the white and bamboo model.

Samsung made phablet fans in the U.S. wait a while for the Galaxy Note 4, and they’ve been waiting even longer for its peculiar brother, the Galaxy Note Edge. But the South Korean company has today confirmed that the Note Edge will be arriving in the U.S. this month, with AT&T first to kick off sales this week.

When Verizon mysteriously disappeared from a list of carriers supported by the Nexus 6 on Google Play, some consumers were worried that the device would no longer be available on Big Red. But according to those who have already received the device, it works just fine on Verizon right out of the box.

One of the downsides to choosing Android over iOS — if you live in the U.S., at least — is that carriers like to pre-install their own apps and services and prevent you from removing them. Often called “bloatware,” the apps sometimes include custom messaging apps, navigation clients, payment services, and more.

Very few Android users appreciate bloatware, and Google knows that. Thankfully, the company is now doing something about it. With Lollipop, it’ll be easier than ever for users to banish bloatware for good.
