Android collectible figurines are pretty fun to buy and collect. If you're into that then you might want to consider today's daily deal, which is an Android collectible bundle featuring the Big Box Edition of Android figurines from DKE Toys, as well as 6" Ganndroid plushie.
Mobile gaming is really strictly mobile anymore these days. With programs like Bluestacks (and others) or services like Nvidia's GeForce Now gaming-on-demand, and GameStream, you can pretty much play Android games on any platform you want, besides consoles, as well as playing other platform's games on Android. The line between all the video game platforms has thinned out a lot.
Every day we feature a new deal over on our store and today we were going to showcase the Backblaze Unlimited Backup 1-year subscription that is currently on sale. However, while looking through some of our other goodies, I spotted this rather cool Ingress battery pack, complete with animated lighting.
Today's DroidGamers Daily Deal in our new store is a full Raspberry Pi 2 Starter Kit, which comes complete with all the hardware you need to get started, guides on what you can do with this, and a couple of programming courses to get you on your way. There is actually quite a lot of interesting things you can do with the Raspberry Pi 2, including installing Android on it.
Just days after Google announced its latest iteration of the popular Chromecast streaming device, Amazon has made an announcement of its own; Amazon sellers are banned from selling any version of the device, or its peer, the Apple TV. The move demonstrates just how serious Amazon is about bolstering its own streaming service, but that hasn't stopped Amazon from offering a friendly spin that seems unrelated to competition.
At the beginning of September the Sphero BB-8 Star Wars themed app-enabled robot became available and pretty much everyone wanted one, even just to play with it for a minute. Well 3Doodler has now made the Sphero BB-8 Star Wars robot a series instead, with the BB-Luke, BB-Darth, BB-3PO and BB-Leia.
The other day Google announced two new Nexus phones during their Nexus event, the Nexus 6P and the Nexus 5X. Both are pretty solid entries into the Nexus brand, with the Nexus 5X in particular being an upgraded version of LG's previous Nexus 5. Since the original announcement, all that has really been known about the launching of either device is that pre-orders are live now, and that they would be shipping out later this month.
Yesterday we launched our new Deals store and while we already have a promo code for everyone to use for 10% off any purchase for a limited time, that certainly isn't all that is going on to help celebrate the launch of the new store. Another event going on happens to be a giveaway for a Samsung Galaxy 6 Edge.
While the big news today regarding the Nvidia Shield Android TV is that GeForce Now will be launching tomorrow, that isn't all of the news regarding Nvidia today. If you live in Europe, all you've really been able to do is stare at pictures of the Shield Android TV. Tomorrow that changes as well since the company has now made it available for European residents.
While this isn't really gaming related, we might as well cover the last piece of hardware Google announced today during their event, Chromecast Audio. This is actually a pretty neat idea that allows users to turn their current speakers at home into 'smart speakers' basically. The whole thing works almost the same as normal Chromecast, except it is for music.
During Google's event this morning, the company announces two new Chromecast devices. One is an improved version of the current Chromecast, complete with a new spherical design. The other is an audio version of Chromecast for speakers, which is admittedly pretty neat in itself.
