The internet can be a scary place. People can track your location, hack your personal accounts, and even steal your identity. Sometimes you might want to browse the web with a little more privacy. A VPN (virtual private network) allows you to use the internet through an encrypted network. This means all of your private data is hidden from prying eyes.

Over at AndroidArea we have a sweet deal on NordVPN. For just $39 (usually $120) you can get a 2-year subscription to this handy service. The deal ends in two days, so act fast. What exactly does $39 get you?

  • All data sent through NordVPN’s private tunnels is double encrypted (double data SSL-based 2048-bit encryption), keeping you anonymous and hiding your information
  • Secures any Internet connection: public Wi-Fi hotspots, cellular networks & more
  • Bypass content restrictions and stay anonymous
  • Strict no-log policy: your activity is not recorded anywhere
  • 43+ worldwide server locations in 25 different countries for online access anywhere
  • High speed connections for streaming video and content access
  • Easy to use and set up; custom versions for each specific device
  • Automatic kill switch shuts down your site as soon as the VPN connection drops, so no data is revealed
  • All DNS queries stay secure and protected
  • Secret notes that auto-destroy & encrypted chat function
  • Connect two devices simultaneously
  • No limit on data
  • Web proxy extension for Google Chrome

Snag this deal right here before it ends. If you’ve been looking for a VPN service, or have been curious to try one, this is a nice deal.

T-Mobile takes $100 off the Nexus 6 [DEAL] Thu, 14 May 2015 16:00:36 +0000 Nexus 6 unboxed

If you were going to buy a Nexus 6 from Google Play, you might want to avert your attention to T-Mobile instead. The company is putting the Nexus 6 up for $550, which is $100 cheaper than it typically goes for.

The great thing about this deal is that you can take advantage no matter which carrier you’re with, as all Nexus 6 units sold in the United States are identical and can be used with whoever you’re with.

Of course, T-Mobile customers have the added benefit of getting it for $0 down and paying a monthly installment to make the day one cost a bit cheaper, but if you were going to buy this thing unlocked we can’t think of a better place to do it right now. T-Mobile has the deal for you right here if you want to take advantage.

Best Buy has the HTC One M8 for $300 off-contract in latest 1-day sale [DEAL] Wed, 13 May 2015 17:25:33 +0000 HTC One M8 DSC06660

Best Buy’s bonus deal of the day is putting up a very good flagship smartphone for just $300 without a contract. It’s the HTC One M8, and while it may not be the newest slab of metal from the Taiwanese company it still holds its own up against more recent options.

The price applies to Verizon, Sprint and AT&T variants, with T-Mobile missing because Best Buy doesn’t sell T-Mobile phones. You’ll get free shipping if you don’t require it to be expedited. There are no strings attached otherwise — go buy one, but do it before the day is over if you want it at this price.

HURRY: $209 for the Motorola DROID Ultra at Amazon until 3PM Central Tue, 12 May 2015 19:14:19 +0000 IMG_2475

One of Motorola’s best phones from 2013 is now on sale for a mere $209 at Amazon. It”s the Motorola DROID Ultra, and this bad boy is on a lightning deal that’s set to expire soon. Like, “3PM top of the hour” soon.

We reviewed this bad boy back when it was still the new kid on the block and found that it was an excellent top-line smartphone for its time despite not having the gaudy Snapdragon 600 and a 1080p display. Don’t take too long reading our review, though, because the current price could evaporate before you even realize it.

PS: Note that this smartphone is only intended for use on Verizon Wireless. Don’t purchase it if you don’t plan to use it with Verizon service.

Get 4 Avengers-themed cases for free when you buy a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 [DEAL] Thu, 07 May 2015 13:53:24 +0000 avengers case note 4

Samsung’s really going in with their promotion of the latest Avengers movie, and the latest will be quite nice for those in the market for a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 soon. The company is offering up 4 different Avengers-themed cases whenever you buy a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 in the United States.

No, you don’t get to choose 1 out of 4 — you get all 4! That’s a pretty insane deal, and even if you aren’t an avengers fan you can’t argue with free. It helps that they look badass, with The Hulk, Captain America, Iron Man and Thor all being well represented here. Samsung says the set is worth a retail value of a whopping $200, though we’d argue that only a madman would retail these cases at $50 each — there really isn’t anything special about them other than the Avengers designs.

The promotion lasts through June 1st or until they’ve given 4,300 of these sets away, whichever comes first. All you’ll need to do once you have your Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and accompanying receipt in hand is head right here.

If that’s a little too steep, there’s always the 32GB version for $350. Again, that’s not a bad deal for a pocketable — yet fully capable — 5-inch phone. Especially considering the Nexus 5 has already been discontinued.

Grab a Moto X (2nd Gen) for $225 off tomorrow only [DEALS] Tue, 05 May 2015 00:14:50 +0000 Moto X 2014 DSC07126

The Moto X (2nd Gen) is fast approaching its 1 year birthday and with that, Motorola has begun teasing another big sale on the device. Starting tomorrow (and tomorrow only), you can pick up a brand new Motorola Moto X for up to $225 off its regular price.

That means the 32GB model can be had for $350 and if you need something with a bit more internal storage, Motorola says they’ll the 64GB model will run $375. Not a bad deal if you’ve been looking to upgrade outside of carrier contracts and the $800 Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge isn’t a viable option for you.

The Moto X is still one of our favorite Android devices out and what it doesn’t have in specs, it makes up for it in style. Let’s not forget it’s still easily one of the fastest Android devices available. The deal starts tomorrow, May 5th at 11AM CT and ends at 11AM CT, May 6th.

Moto 360 on sale for $180 (that’s $70 off), limited time only Sat, 02 May 2015 01:18:15 +0000 Motorola Moto 360 womens

In a sort of early Mother’s Day promotion, Motorola is taking a cool $70 off the Moto 360, bringing the price down to a very reasonable $180. If you were waiting for the Android Wear powered smartwatch to hit that sub $200 price point, now’s your chance to pick one up. You can design your own on Moto Maker, customizing the watch with various watch strap sizes, materials, and designs.

Aside from still being one of the better, minimal looking Android Wear devices on the market, the watch has also been confirmed to receive WiFi functionality once that new 5.1 software update gets to rolling out. We have a feeling the recently released — and circular — LG Watch Urbane may have motivated the price cut, but don’t forget that watch will run you a cool $350. If you’re still on the fence, check out our in depth Moto 360 review right here.

Grab a Nexus Player for only $75 with free $20 Google Play credit Thu, 30 Apr 2015 22:54:13 +0000 Nexus Player hero

For anyone who can’t get enough Android in their life, the Android TV-powered Nexus Player makes a great option to streaming devices like Apple TV or Roku. Right now, the streaming set top box can now be found on Amazon for around $75, that’s about $25 cheaper than you’ll find it on the Google Store.

The Nexus Player also comes with a complimentary Google Play credit of $20 to download applications, games, or add movies to your library. We should note, this is the basic model that only comes with a remote — not the official Gamepad for playing video games (that’ll run you an extra $40). That being said, it’s still a pretty good deal for anyone who’s been eying the Nexus Player, but wanted to wait for a deal first. Grab it on Amazon via the link below.
