The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is a fantastic Android device, shipping with a nice, untouched version of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and now, it's $100 cheaper than it was yesterday. This brings the price of the Verizon version of the Galaxy Nexus in line with the upcoming CDMA Sprint model, which makes perfect sense.

Today, the company launches a new product that aims to give you a bit of confidence in that you are getting the best price out there, period.

We've talked at length about how great we think Windows Phone 7 is, but regardless of how good it is, it hasn't translated into amazing sales. Microsoft hopes that changes on April 8th, as the company, along with Nokia and AT&T, are making a colossal bet on the Nokia Lumia 900 being the breakout device for Windows Phone. In fact, the phone just went on sale for pre-order today, and there are some great deals out there. First of all, the Lumia 900 is selling for $99 with two-year contract, which in and of itself is amazing. Further, if you pre-order from Walmart, you can get the device for $49.99 with two-year contract (online only.) Finally, if you're a new AT&T customer, you get a $100 rebate, making the phone free.
Customers who pre-order will have their Lumia 900 smartphones by April 6th, a full two days before they hit store shelves for the masses. Oh, and this is for the black and cyan models. The white Lumia 900 launches April 22. You just don't see deals like this right out of the gate for high-quality 4G LTE smartphones with 4.3-inch AMOLED displays and 8 megapixel auto-focus cameras with dual LED flash! If you're in the market for a new smartphone, you'll wanna take a long, hard look at this one. Pre-order at AT&T or Walmart.
Looking for a good deal on the Kindle Fire? Today is your lucky day, because Amazon is selling off Fire refurbs for $139. That's $60 less than the price of a new model, and $30 less than what the company typically charges for refurbished units. You also get a one-year warranty on the tablet to boot.
This morning, AT&T announced that the Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Phone will launch at just $99 on April 8th. This confirms the rumors that we've been hearing for over a month now, and puts a top-of-the-line, fantastic 4G LTE smartphone on the market at a price that all experts agree is a steal.
Seriously, with a two-year contract, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better deal on a smartphone. Windows Phone 7.5 is a great mobile operating system, the Lumia 900 is a beautiful device, and it's packing a great 4.3-inch display and 4G LTE speeds.
If you're gonna be looking for a new smartphone starting next month, do yourself a favor and at least research this phone. In fact, you can check it out in the video after the jump.

March 18th was the set date for the Nokia Lumia 900, but due to technical difficulties, red tape, and all that jazz, the release date has been bumped back a bit to April 22nd, reports BGR. However, though the longer wait time may be disappointing to some, the price is definitely not. As stated earlier this year, the Lumia 900 will sell for $99 with a two-year contract. The only question that’s left to be answered in my mind, is will this phone be indestructible as the old Nokia brick phones? Time will tell when April rolls around and we’ll make sure to keep you posted, but for now just know that the best Windows Phone yet will be available in just over a month.
At this morning's iPad event, aside from the new third-generation iPad, Apple announced that it would continue to make and sell the iPad 2.
