Google offering developers 25% off a Pixel C tablet

25

Google's Pixel C tablet wasn't exactly the second coming of Android computing we'd all been hoping for. But it just got a little better — first with the release of the N Developer Preview, and now with Google offering developers 25 percent off its latest tablet.

Technically you're supposed to be a developer to take advantage of this one — and Google says it's one redemption per person, and it doesn't apply to the keyboard.

In any event, this is gonna be one folks are going to want to take advantage of.

Discount codes are good for 25 percent off of either the 32- or 64-gigabyte models and must be redeemed by July 15.

Why you should try the $49 Amazon Fire tablet

96

In the past we've steered people clear of really cheap Android tablets. Not this time.

The Amazon Fire Tablet is both really cheap and Android, though perhaps not the Android you're used to. There's no Google to be found, which means no Play Store or Google Apps of any kind.

But if you go for the 7-inch Fire you're only going to be asked to part with $49 of your hard-earned cash. I've been using one personally for a few months now, and I keep getting asked whether it's worth a go.

The answer is yes.
