RadioShack has turned itself into one of the places that you need to check before you upgrade to a new smartphone or buy a new device. The thing I like best about the deals RadioShack offers is that there are no mail-in rebates; the price advertised is what you pay.
So you'd like some deals, yes? I'd like some deals, we'd ALL like some deals. But do you want to go out into the streets and risk getting punched in the face, that's the real question. Here at SlashGear, we know your pain. We know you want to get a sweet discount on your favorite device, service, or strange product (my favorite), but you want to know if you're going to have to jump out of bed to do it, or if you're going to be able to just chill in your Turkey-basted leftovers haze. Therefor the first way we're separating deals here in The SlashGear Black Friday Deal Guide of Complete Excellence is in two categories: Online and In the Streets. This is also a LIVE post, meaning we'll be adding to it as that faithful day approaches.
One of the cool things about RadioShack is that they have all sorts of stuff in one store. The store is one of the places where a lot of mobile phone users head when it's time to buy a new phone because they tend to have some deals that you can’t get other places. It's windows Phone 7 deals seem to be on par with other sellers.
RadioShack has been the go to place for all manner of weird electronics gear and RC toys for a long time. The company is trying to make itself into something more than a place you can buy toys and other obsolete components with the addition of a ton of mobile phones.
Time certainly does catch up with you, doesn't it? Hopefully you were all having fun, so it flew by and what not. Just feels like yesterday that we all sat here, and brought you the announcement of Apple's latest iPhone iteration, the iPhone 4. And in all the hub-bub, we also told you that Walmart, RadioShack, and Best Buy would be part of the third-party retailer brigade offering up their own models for pre-order and sale. Well, tomorrow's the big pre-order day, so jump after the break to find out where you can go to pick one up, and what you need to do to make it happen.
RadioShack has over the last year or so turned itself into one of the biggest resellers of mobile phones from a variety of carriers around. Many folks in areas that have 4G coverage from Sprint have been anxiously waiting for the EVO 4G to land. The device is the first 4G smartphone offered on the Sprint network.
It seems just like yesterday we were doing this. Oh, right. Well, we're glad you're back! And if you're new, welcome to The Daily Slash, where we grab the few, random, interesting stories from around the Interwebs, and we list them right here for you. Tonight, we've got two giants in the tech world meeting face-to-face, a shack with a radio in the name leveraging the possibilities of a sale, a hotel that's got some wheels, and finally a computer that's got a graphics card in it that may make your heart skip a beat. All in a day's work. So, sit back, and let's get into it.
While the Archos 5 Android Internet Tablet has been available for a few months now, so far it's only been on sale in the larger SSD and HDD versions. Now RadioShack have launched the 8GB SSD Archos 5, currently an exclusive at the retailer and priced at $249.99.
It has been only a few weeks since RadioShack announced that it was rebranding itself as The Shack. Only a few weeks before that big name change the company announced that it would be offering T-Mobile phones in its retail locations.
