Black Friday

Android Community Weekly Digest: Nov. 30, 2014

The weekend was mostly likely a frantic one, with all the food, the shopping, and, of course, some much needed family down time. But it ain't over yet! Cyber Monday fast approaches and you are most likely trying to recover some energy, and maybe some money as well, in preparation for that, so we'll make this as quick and as painless as possible. Presenting Android Community's Weekly Digest covering November 24 to November 30, 2014, a.k.a. The Thanksgiving Edition. Android Community Deals We are launching a new venture with StackSocial to bring the sweetest deals on gadgets, accessories, and toys to match your digital lifestyle, and we've started off with 10, yes TEN, deals for Black Friday. But don't worry if you missed that chance, as there will be a lot more to come. Head on over to the DEALS section of Android Community (or click this link) to see what's up for grabs. We will be highlighting some of the more interesting ones each week, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for them. Android Community Deals is brought to you in cooperation with StackSocial.

Black Friday Frenzy, Cyber Monday Madness By now everyone, even those outside the US, knows how crazy shops get during this season and naturally, there were many, many promos and deals to be had. But fret not if Friday passed with nary an item in your shopping cart, because there are still a few bits and pieces left when Monday dawns. Motorola will be kicking off its 2nd gen Moto X discount, Amazon still has the Fire Phone at $199 and is still selling the Chromecast at a reduced $23. A lot of other deals are still in effect until Monday, so better not stow away those cards yet for one last holiday hurrah. India: the market's new darling After getting a foothold in China, It seems that the industry is slowly shifting its eyes towards India. Google fired the opening salvo by launching Android One on three local manufacturers. But instead of taking the market by storm, it seems that the new breed of smartphones is meeting some cold reception, thanks in no small part to Google overlooking the local smartphone business culture. Other smaller players are also trying to take a stab at the market. Xiaomi's Redmi Note makes its debut in India, with Fleksy bundled inside. OnePlus has just announced its still invite-only India launch in partnership with Amazon India. But surprisingly, Cyanogen, Inc., the very same people who make the CyanogenMod 11S OS on the OnePlus One, revealed an exclusive deal with India's Micromax, much to the confusion and dismay of the Chinese startup. We are likely to see more of this drama unfold in the coming days. Moto 360 and its new look Not exactly a holiday discount, but Motorola has finally made available the silver and gold metal straps for the round smartwatch, giving it an even classier facade. In addition to that, it has also made available for purchase both the Horween leather and the metal straps so that owners of the Moto 360 can now mix and match as they please, without having to spend on another unit.

Black Friday and Cyber Monday: here’s what’s going down

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and so are two of the biggest shopping days of the year. Black Friday and Cyber Monday will be overflowing with sales, discounts, and promos that will try to relieve you of the holiday tension. But what to get and where to get it? If you haven't made up your mind what to buy this holiday yet, here are some of the options available to you. Welcome to Android Community's mini shopping guide.

Enjoy Connection Day with Verizon and Amazon

It’s never too early to celebrate the holidays. Before Christmas, we have Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday so this means more great shopping deals from Amazon. For Verizon, the mobile carrier is releasing the first gifts of the season. No free mobile devices (at least none that we know of) but rather digital stuff like audiobooks, apps, and music for everyone.

HTC slashes Re camera price for Black Friday

HTC may be new in the digital camera business but it's determined to bring the Re camera to the market. Yes, HTC wants to make more sense by lowering the price of the periscope-shaped camera this Black Friday weekend. The device has just rolled out a few weeks ago and we're not sure how the public is receiving the camera but HTC is willing to make it more affordable.

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet, Portable spread some holiday cheer

Of course, you saw it coming. This weekend will see yet another flood of sales and promotions to entice buyers to hand over their cash. And with the growing number of devices in the market today, many of those will undoubtedly be spent on electronics and games. Not to be outdone, NVIDIA will be offering bundles of its SHIELD gaming crew with huge discounts. But take heed, as these rare creatures will only appear for little less than a day.

Black Friday is a day dedicated to deals. Shoppers wander around in a turkey induced stupor looking to grab insane deals for themselves and loved ones. Well, you can actually get some good savings without walking out of your house and braving the crowds thanks to generous app creators on Google Play.
