Galaxy Tab Deal
This morning I noticed that DailySteals is running a deal for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1″ model for $349. The unit is a WiFi-only unit and has 16GB of storage. Also important to note is that buried in the product description is that the units are refurbished and come with a 90 day warranty. The new retail boxed version sold on Amazon costs $499 and features a one-year warranty. I have never purchased anything from DailySteals so make sure to do your typical merchant research before purchasing.
Blackberry Playbook Deal
If you are looking for a Blackberry Playbook (that’s Blackberry’s tablet device which runs Flash), Staples is sending out coupons to their email lists with coupons that appear to be ranging from $100-$200. The talk on the deal boards is that not everyone is receiving the coupons – I know that I haven’t on any of the email addresses I have registered with Staples.
Assuming you received the $200 Staples coupon and stacked it with a $25 Staples coupon and also got the $100 rebate, you would pay $125 for the 16GB Blackberry Playbook – very close to the HP Playbook pricing! That is one hot deal if you are part of the Blackberry family.
If you receive a coupon from Staples but don’t plan to use it – you might be able to swap it for $20 or so with someone on SlickDeals.
You know that your brand has "made it" when your brand is now the generic term. Kleenex (tissues), Google (search engine), iPod (music device) and BlackBerry (wireless data device).
Today CrackBerry launched. The site is basically a social network for addicted BlackBerry users. There are blogs, forums, a heavily marketed store and other news from the "Crackosphere" (ok I made that term up).
"Our aim is simple," says Kevin Michaluk, CrackBerry's CEO. "We want to establish CrackBerry.com as the premier resource for anything and everything BlackBerry." Michaluk, and two fellow BlackBerry users, recognized the need for an end-user focused BlackBerry site. "The site is relevant and useful to those who have made the BlackBerry a part of their daily lives — from Wall Street financiers and business executives who use the device for professional use, to teenagers and socialites who use the device to stay connected."
There is a great video listed on the site which I have embedded below. It is absolutely hilarious and shows what addiction is really like.
