• Our Boxing Day thread

    Some boxing day flyers are now up so I figured I'd through a boxing day thread together. Really good deals have been bolded. I only included phones, tablets and memory cards.

    Highlights include $0 Apple iPhone 5's, Galaxy Note 2 for $0, Galaxy S III for $0 WITH $150 gift cards. There's also the HTC One X+ for $0 with a $100 gift card.

    Futureshop and Bestbuy are also blowing out the 3rd Gen Apple iPad's. WiFi versions are $20 off while the LTE versions are $80 off. What's the diff between the current iPad (4th gen) and the 3rd? The 3rd Gen has an older A5x SOC vs the A6x in the 4th gen. The 4th gen also has Apple's lightning connector. In my opinion these 2 features are not enough for you to spend extra to get the 4th gen one. I'm mighty temped myself. I just gave all my iPad mini's away and my toddler took my iPad 2...

    Tablet-wise I don't see anything too interesting besides the iPads. While Android tablets are substantially cheaper the Android Tablet ecosystem still isn't mature enough that I'd recommend you buy any of them. So with that mind if you want an Android Tablet spend as little as possible.

    If you're fortunate enough to own a phone with a microSD slot you can pick up a Lexar 32GB Class 10 for $19.99.

    I'm still working on this so you'll see other stores soon.

      iPads are insanely overpriced. Plenty of excellent choices in the Android field. Apple fanboys are pretty easy to spot!
