Droids for $0.01 at Amazon, $50 at Wirefly

Droid - pennies

As we reported Friday, if you’re interested in a Google Android phone, but haven’t been able to justify the $200 price tag for most devices, Amazon has a deal for you, but it ends today! Those who purchase an HTC Droid Incredible, Motorola Droid X, Droid II, or Droid Pro will pay only $0.01 if they sign up for a two-year Verizon Wireless plan. The sale began Nov. 19 and runs through 11:59 p.m. Nov. 22 (tonight). In addition, Amazon will wave the $35 activation fee for new customers (deal runs from Nov. 19 – Nov. 29, 2010).

While we haven’t had a chance to check out the Droid Pro yet, the other three devices are top-rated Android phones. Since the sale began, three out of the four devices have gone into backorder due to high demand. Only the Droid Incredible remains in stock.

Unfortunately, this discount is only for new customers. Those who currently have a Verizon account and are up for renewal will not be able to take advantage of the AmazonWireless deal. However, those up for renewal can get a Droid Pro from Wirefly for a only $50 ($49.99). Best Buy is also offering new Droids for $100, but only for new customers.

For reference, we’ve got guides to the best Android devices and apps. Check it out!

The Amazon Fire tablet is the only cheap tablet you should buy on Black Friday
Fire 8 HD Tablet

If you’re looking for the best budget tablet at a discount in the Black Friday deals, the only ones you should be considering are Amazon Fire tablets. There’s a reason Amazon has swallowed up the cheap tablet market, and it’s not just price, though that has a lot to do with it.

One of the biggest reasons is that Amazon has Fire tablet models for pretty much anyone’s needs. The key part here is while most of them aren’t powerhouses in terms of the specs department, they’re all more than capable of handling the basic needs of browsing, streaming, and games. Sure, none of them are as high quality as the iPad, but at a fraction of the $329 price, do they really need to be? For people that use plenty of Amazon services and don’t mind having the company as their main portal to the internet and subscription services, it’s hard to name a set of slates that offer better value.
