AT&T tweaks data plans, gives us more for our dollar

AT&T has apparently started a restructure of their mobile data plans and have done a bit of tweaking. My title is a bit misleading and so our the prices. While we'll be getting more for our dollar, we will also be paying slightly more even if we don't need it -- and there's nothing you can do about it. AT&T is nudging the price of all their plans up a notch but are giving us a little extra data in return.

Samsung Galaxy Nexus $559.99 unsubsidized on Daily Steals

For a limited time, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is available over at Daily Steals for only $559.99 + $4.99 shipping. Considering it retails for about $190 more, this is a good 25% off. If you've never ventured over to Daily Steals before, they are a "one sale a day" website - so at max you'll have 24Hrs to order. The Nexus just went on sale, so you still have time to decide whether or not you're up for dropping that much cash. It's definitely a tough decision with the Galaxy S III right around the corner.

Nook Color dropping to $199 soon, getting Hulu Plus support

The new Nook Tablet wasn't the only thing recently leaked by Barnes & Noble. When the Tablet replaces the original Nook Color at its $249 price point, the Nook Color will drop down to $199 permanently, giving the company a model that directly competes with the upcoming Kindle Fire at exactly the same price. The Nook Tablet will be released on November 16th, which is presumably when the Nook Color will receive its price drop. It might also be reduced right after the official announcement on November 7th. It will also be getting a new software update, including Hulu Plus access.

iBall Slide Android Tablet has Ports Galore and a $300 pricetag

If there's one sort of device that we've over this past year come to find we're in no shortage of, it's Android "tablets". I put quotation marks around that word because as Android evolves and groups like Samsung bring out devices that bridge the gap, the word "tablet" will be used less and less by publishers while "Android device" used in a general sense will become much more likely a term for news releases. What we've got here, before that wave covers us all, is an Android device which has a 7-inch display, runs Android 2.3.x Gingerbread, and has about as many ports as you could ask for along the side.

Amazon beats Verizon, drops Droid Charge to $199

If you haven't already ordered the amazing and blazing fast Droid Charge you might want to keep reading. Amazon has done what they've done many times in the past and are offering a lower price than Verizon Wireless for the brand spanking new Samsung Droid Charge. When pricing first leaked the Droid Charge was listed as $299 with a new 2 year contract when the pricing has usually been $199 for smartphones. Verizon stuck with that price for some reason, but Amazon is here to save the day.

Motorola DROID R2-D2 Now Only $99.99

Remember the Star Wars DROID R2-D2? The device brought to market for the "ultra-fans" has just seen a price drop as Verizon navigates away from offering up online rebates. The Motorola DROID R2-D2 has now been cut to $99.99 with a 2-year agreement.

Droid Bionic Appears on Amazon for $149

Just as we saw the Motorola Atrix listed on Amazon for $149 last week, a new page for the upcoming DROID BIONIC has appeared on the site. Featuring the same, surprisingly low price-point of $149 it seems far too early for the device to make its debut on the online retailer.

Verizon Axes Top-Tier Smartphone Rebates Altogether

Word on the street is that Verizon plans on getting rid of their rebate program for all phones costing $150 and above. What does this mean?! It means that while at the moment when you walk into a store and see a phone that costs $400, $300 with mail-in-rebate, in the future you'll just see the phone for a $300. Why haven't they done this sooner?
