SHIELD Tablet LTE owners in the US who are ready to kick off the holiday weekend have a little something extra to be thankful for this year - their version of NVIDIA's eight-inch tablet is getting Lollipop as of now.

The Wi-Fi version of the tablet started getting the update a little over a week ago, and it was announced at that time that NVIDIA was waiting on carrier approval (probably AT&T) before Android 5.0 could be pushed to the LTE model.

$_12Most of the deals we post from eBay are for refurbished devices . It's a great way to save money on a new gadget, but some people are understandably turned off at the idea of buying something that's been used before, no matter how gently or infrequently. This deal is for them: a brand new Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 can be had from Newegg's official eBay page for $449.99. That's a full $300 off of the original retail price from back in March, and $150 off of the current price on Amazon.

verizon thumbWe take a lot of jabs at Verizon here at Android Police, and not without good cause. But we can't deny that the company's current Connection Day promotion, in conjunction with an Amazon partnership, is offering some sweet free stuff. Right now Amazon is giving away a bunch of paid apps and music via its Appstore and Amazon Music portals, compliments of Big Red. You can add them to your Amazon library whether or not you use Verizon for home or wireless services.

The Galaxy S II Skyrocket, AT&T's first LTE phone, was released a little over three years ago. During its lifetime, it had pretty good support from Samsung regarding Android version updates. It launched with Gingerbread, and got subsequent bumps to Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean 4.1. That OTA to Jelly Bean was the last time the phone saw any kind of software update, and that was 19 months ago. With that in mind, AT&T apparently can't let its first LTE love go because, out of nowhere, Samsung has announced a new software update for the aging device.

nexus2cee_lollipop_thumbIf you're willing to throw caution to the wind and void your warranty, you can have Android 5.0 on your Sprint Galaxy S5 right now. An early build of Lollipop for this device has leaked on XDA, and it's flashable with Odin. Expect bugs, but hey, it's Lollipop.

The ROM has Samsung's distinctive TouchWiz look and feel, but all of the big Android 5.0 features are present and accounted for. The XDA poster notes that basic functionality like calls and SMS work, but the sensors have not been fully tested yet.

PlayStore-ThumbWe're generally happy to report when Google expands Play Store availability to a new region, whether it's access to books, movies, or apps. In this particular case, the news tastes a little bitter. Google has opened up the Play Store to Cuba, offering residents a chance to download free apps. It's just too bad most won't be able to step inside and shop.

The thing is, the Internet is heavily censored through the island.

$_57If you want a high-end phone for a GSM network, this deal will probably beat anything you're likely to find on Black Friday. Right now one eBay seller is unloading a refurbished AT&T version of the HTC One M8 for just $379.99, almost $300 off of the retail off-contract price and a solid eighty bucks cheaper than our previous best One M8 deal. You can pick it up with free shipping in grey, silver, or gold colors.

nexus2cee_NewMotoX-Thumb1-150x150Republic Wireless made news last year when it started selling the Moto X for what was, at the time, a very compelling price. Now the Sprint MVNO has gotten the 2014 Moto X ready for its special hybrid calling service. It's coming December 10th for $399. That's $100 less than the regular off-contract price.

nexus2cee_unnamed_thumb24_thumb_thumbGot some shopping plans this holiday weekend? That might be the time to pull the trigger on a Nexus 6 if you're on Sprint. Some information we've been passed indicates Google is partnering with Sprint to throw in $50 of Play Store credit when you buy a Nexus 6 between Black Friday (11/28) and Cyber Monday (12/1).

The first and most obvious caveat is that only purchases made through Sprint count.

medium02If you're using LG's flagship G3 or the oddball G Flex on Sprint, expect some new software next week. According to an internal Sprint document, both phones will be updated with some minor software patches, version ZV26 for the G3 and ZV9 for the G Flex. Just to make it clear, you're not getting Lollipop, at least not yet: the document shows that it's mostly security and bug fixes, plus international Wi-Fi calling.
