Apple first announced the Apple Watch at the tail end of the iPhone keynote last September, but didn’t get around to actually releasing the wearable (in extremely limited quantities) to customers until April of this year. Since its initial launch, Apple has slowly ramped production and orders to the point where the initial 6- to 8-week delivery window has shrunk to two days with free shipping or one day with expedited shipping. Now that supply issues are for the most part worked out, Apple is ready to take the next step: opening up sales to one of its largest U.S. retail partners. Best Buy announced... Read more...
Two new Asus tablets hit shelves in the U.S. this week, giving shoppers some interesting (and fairly inexpensive) new options. The Asus ZenPad 7 and ZenPad S 8.0 aren’t available on U.S. version of Asus’ website just yet, but Best Buy already has them for sale online. It appears that neither tablet is available in brick and mortar stores, though you can walk into any Best Buy to order a tablet and have it shipped to your store.  One of the ZenPad 7’s most attractive features is its price. Just under $100 gets you a reasonably thin (0.35 inches) tablet running Lollipop. It has an Intel... Read more...
Pebble launched its Kickstarter campaign for the Time smartwatch in late February, and by late March the company raised over $20 million for the project. Although many questioned the need for Pebble to dip into the Kickstarter well again with the Time given that it is an established player in the smartwatch space, you can’t argue with the results. For those that weren’t able to get in early and secure a pre-order for the Pebble Time before the Kickstarter campaign ended, the smartwatch is now up for pre-order at Best Buy. You can pre-order the smartwatch in black, red, and white at a cost of $199.99... Read more...
Father's Day is just around the corner, and if pops is a gamer, Best Buy has an offer that you might find is too good to refuse. It involves wiping the dust off your PlayStation 3 Slim or Xbox 360 250GB console, grabbing the power cable, and making sure it fires up. If so, you can trade in either of those consoles and receive $175 towards an Xbox One console. That slashes the price of an Xbox One in half, provided you're opting for a 500GB model. For example, Best Buy currently sells a special white edition of the Xbox One with 500GB hard drive and Halo: The Master Chief Collection... Read more...
While it’s not quite the smoking deal from early last month (a deal which in hindsight was a price mistake), Best Buy is currently trimming $100 from all models of the Motorola Moto 360. The attractive Moto 360 is by far the best-selling Android Wear smartwatch on the market and recently received an update that adds Wi-Fi capabilities, among other things. The $100 discount means that the stainless steel/leather band, stainless steel/stainless steel band, and gold/gold band Moto 360 smartwatches can be had for $149.99, $199.99, and $229.99, respectively. We should also note that Amazon has also... Read more...
Just this past Tuesday, Apple updated two if its high-end PC product lines: the 15-inch MacBook Pro and the 27-inch 5K Retina iMac. The developments surrounding the 5K iMac were perhaps the most interesting, as Apple lopped off $500 off the price of entry for the base model, taking it to a respectable $1,999 (with slightly reduced specs). The ranging-topping model saw its price fall by $200 to $2,299. Now just mere days after Apple made its big price cuts, Best Buy is coming along with an additional price cut of its own. The range-topping model that we mentioned has be reduced to just $2,099 over... Read more...
There were many interesting tidbits to come out of Apple's Q2 financial call yesterday, all of which Brandon highlighted. There's one tidbit that might be flying under some people's radar, but deserves some more attention: Apple announced a major win with its Apple Pay service, as it can now count Best Buy as a supporter. This isn't just big news because Best Buy is a major retailer; it becomes massive news because Best Buy is part of the consortium of retailers that's working on its own Apple Pay competitor, called CurrentC. A Best Buy spokeswoman says that her company remains committed to the... Read more...
