While you can pick up last year’s Nexus 6 64GB at a ridiculously low price ($260) on Amazon today, Google’s official online store has some discounts of its own to offer for Black Friday. Perhaps most attractive is the $80 price cut on one of this year’s newest Nexus phones.
You can now buy the 32GB Nexus 5X for just $349 (down from $429), while the 16GB version is $299. At time of writing, all color options are in stock, but the discount only applies while inventory is there. While it’s not the biggest discount we’ve ever seen, it’s still very generous given how new the Nexus 5X is. Google only announced the product last month, and it’s one of the only available phones to support Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box.
While stocks last, you can also snag the Nexus 9 at a discount. The tablet is down to just $199 for the 16GB version and $279 for the 32GB model, cutting the price down by a hefty $200. As things stand (at least until the Pixel C is available), the Nexus 9 is currently one of the only tablets available offering a pure Android experience. Multiple manufacturers have Android tablets on the market, but most come with a boat-load of bloatware. For $199 I’d argue you can’t get a better Android tablet if you value performance and software purity. expand full story

Amazon offers the Ultimate Ears Boom Speaker in multiple colors for $99.99 with free shipping. That’s half off the list and likely the lowest price we’ll see this holiday season. This is one of the best Bluetooth speakers I’ve tested and at $100 a no brainer price. The significant price drop is likely a factor of the new Boom 2 which is mostly the same speaker but with waterproofing instead of water resistance of this model.
Features include 360-degree sound, a 15-hour rechargeable battery, app for firmware updates and alarm clock/wake to music functionality and the ability to be paired with an additional BOOM to create stereo sound. Rated 4.6 out of 5 stars from thousands of Amazon reviewers.
