The folks at Samsung have revealed a device by the name of Galaxy Precedent, a device that would certainly have appeared to be a decent little phone on the top of the mid-range in 2010, but now certainly has the specs that work with its price at $150. But here's the thing: this isn't the price you'll be paying if you buy the phone connected to a two-year contract, it's the price you're paying OFF contract. That means that this is a good deal, for real. This device is the Samsung M828C, what's very similar to the Samsung Galaxy Prevail, and is available at places like Walmart and places where TracFone are sold.
The budget-friendly Vizio Tablet has just become even friendlier on your wallet. The 8-inch Android slate was originally released on Vizio's own website and to limited retailers with a price tag of $329. But now it's finally hitting the store shelves of Walmart, Sams's Club, Costco, and Amazon, sporting a new low price of $299.
Earlier this week, we saw the Vizio tablet in video when NBA star Blake Griffin was hooked up by the Vizio man with a new home theater and a tablet to control the system. I like how the tablet can integrate with the Vizio home theater and work like a universal remote control. I also really liked the cool stereo speaker setup that Vizio used so you get stereo sound in portrait and landscape modes.
HTC's new flagship phone, the HTC Sensation 4G, is reportedly going on sale early at some Walmart locations. The phone was recently knocked for having an iPhone-like "death grip" signal strength problem, which the company quickly dismissed as false. If the issue doesn't perturb you and you'd like to grab one early, then be on the look out at your local Walmart.
The hard part will be finding one in the store. We were unable to confirm which stores will participate in the price drop or how many were still in stock. Walmart has sold out of the iPhone on-line at $199 in both Black and White. Verizon still has the iPhone 4 at $199 with new 2-year agreement. With the Holidays so far away, we can only guess that this move was based on the mounting rumors about the iPhone 5.
Fans that have been looking forward to the HP TouchPad WebOS tablet have an unofficial date to look forward to for the tablet to land in stores. We previously reported that the TouchPad would hit Wal-Mart for $599 when it finally lands with 32GB of storage onboard. While HP has still not offered up an official launch date for the device, it's looking like that rumored June launch will be true. The QuickSpec sheet for the TouchPad has turned up.
The HP TouchPad is set to launch sometime this summer, but so far HP's kept pretty quiet on the details. A leaked lineup sheet back in March revealed that the TouchPad may arrive sometime in June with prices that correspond to those of the iPad 2. Today, a leaked screenshot of a Walmart inventory page shows that its pricing remains the same and that various accessories will also be available.
Walmart may not be the first place you think of stopping by when you need a new gaming PC, but iBUYPOWER is hoping to change that. The manufacturer has made a name for itself for high-powered, generally overclocked desktops, and now those computers are also available through Walmart's online store.
As we suspected when the original iPad was pulled from Best Buy's inventory on Tuesday, the iPad 2 (and its nifty cover) will be available in the store on Friday, March 11. One would suspect then, that Best Buy will begin selling the iPad 2 at 5pm on March 11, just like at Apple Stores. The graphic below is what is shown on Best Buy's website.
