You can now get a 64GB Nexus 6P from Best Buy

Just in time for the holiday, Best Buy has made official what was only rumored last week. Google's latest high end smartphone, the Nexus 6P, is indeed now available for purchase from the retailer. One main difference between this and other sources, like Amazon or Google's own Store, is that the Android smartphone can be found and bought from both Best Buy's online store as well as its brick and mortar outlets. But like those other Nexus 6P, this one is also offered with a time limited $50 discount.

Google might bring Nexus 6P to Best Buy, gold to US

The Nexus 6P turned out to be quite the unexpected but pleasant surprise, give or take some excruciatingly painful bending outcomes.

Best Buy testing same-day delivery as competition grows

Best Buy has big companies to compete with, not the least of which is Amazon, which has been rolling out all sorts of new delivery projects. Same-day deliveries strip away one of the remaining reasons for traveling to a physical store like Best Buy -- you're impatient and want the device now. To keep its head above water in this brave new world, Best Buy itself has started testing same-day deliveries for its customers who want their new toys asap, but don't want to drive to a store to get them.

Verizon and AT&T to bring their tiny stores to Best Buy

Verizon and AT&T to bring their tiny stores to Best Buy

It's become apparent that Best Buy will soon become more of a mini-mall than it will a big box store as Verizon and AT&T add to the fray. Word is that Verizon and AT&T will soon both have their own tiny storefronts inside Best Buy, much in the same way Apple and Samsung have their own miniature stores in the big yellow tag. At this rate, we'll see Best Buy with less store space of its own, renting out floor space to big brand after big brand, each of them striving for an up-close and personal presentation of their own.

Macy’s to test Best Buy shops in ten of its stores

Macy’s makes an appreciable effort to implement technology in its stores, and though you’re not likely to see much of that technology at this point unless you live in certain places in California and select other states, the company continues to experiment with new offerings. There's the retailer's beacon tests, for example, which pushes out deals and promotions to visitors. There's also the tablet-adorned dressing rooms that shuttle clothes directly to shoppers using a built-in chute. And, now, there's Best Buy.

Why the Apple Watch is heading to Best Buy, not Target

Why the Apple Watch is heading to Best Buy, not Target

Why did Apple choose Best Buy to carry their Apple Watch when so many other stores would jump at the chance? This is the question many electronics stores - many of whom also carry Apple products - will be asking at board meetings this afternoon. Why, Apple, would you choose the one retailer for the Apple Watch, one that allows people to literally take working model smartphones and smartwatches off the rack to test them? Why indeed. The proof is in the pudding - stores like Target and Walmart are making a mockery of the point-of-sale mobile device business.

Apple Watch coming soon to a Best Buy near you

Apple Watch coming soon to a Best Buy near you

Like any Apple product, or maybe even more so, the Apple Watch has had its share of believers and naysayers. Just this month, Apple's first wearable was put under much scrutiny due to what was perceived lack of general interest in the smartwatch. Although Apple refuted such claims, both with some actual numbers as well as strong statements, the fact remained that the limited availability of the Apple Watch probably hurt more than it helped. Well, not anymore, because starting next week, you can buy one at a Best Buy retail store.
