Now shipping: Nokia 6.1 Android Smartphone (ZEISS Optics) w/free Photo Kit for $269

If you are a Nokia + Zeiss shipper (ha!), the brand new Nokia 6.1 factory-unlocked Android smartphone with Zeiss optics is now in-stock and shipping for $269 with free expedited shipping at B&H Photo with a free “B&H Photo Video Basic Photo/Video Kit for Smartphones” [mount, LED light, flexible tripod] automatically included by B&H.

This runs Android 8.0, with 3GB RAM [probably the minimum these days for Android], 32GB on-board, microSD storage, GSM, NFC, Bluetooth 5.0, USB-C connector [but not USB 3.x features],

One of the things Nokia is promising with their Android phone line-up is speedy and steady OS and security updates ~ after all the phone is part of Android One. It is easier to promise this when your phone line-up consists of single-figures in individual models, we’ll see how it plays out in the next couple of years ~ after all, most phone manufacturers sound/sounded very optimistic in delivering updates at announcement time, but their post-release records are spotty and patchy [pun intended?]. But they have already delivered multiple updates for their first generation Android phones…

PS: the same price is offered at but without a free photo-video accessories kit…

Motorola Moto G5 Plus for $210 [Prime only]

As flagship smartphone prices keep climbing, so is the average consumer’s interest in alternative bang for the buck smartphones. One such line is the Motorola G series, especially the “all carrier” phones, the ones that work out of the box with all four major US carriers. Among them is the G5 Plus with the 4GB RAM and 64GB storage option. And if you are a Prime member, you can buy ONE unit on sale for $210 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself. This is fully unlocked with USA warranty. Amazon no longer has lockscreen ads, they just pre-install their apps and widgets on the phones.

NOTE that this phone does not have NFC (no contactless mobile payments with it) and it is microUSB power (no USB-C). At this price range, even if it had USB-C, it would likely be USB 2.0, not USB 3.*. It has a fingerprint reader and a headphone jack though which can be a plus for security and convenience.

If you are interested in bang for the buck phones discussion, save this date, on Thursday 3/29/18 at 9pm eastern, the PhoneCast YouTube channel is going to have a live-stream with another YouTube who specializes in bang-for-the-buck phones.

Pre-order new 9.7″ “Educational” iPad, Get $25 e-Gift Card

Apple’s Education Event yesterday revealed a new iPad targeting education, but also generating a lot of interest among the general consumer looking for a $300-ish iPad with support for the Apple Pencil (aka digital stylus). For consumers, this new 9.7″ inch iPad is available for pre-ordering for $330 with a $25 Best Buy e-gift-card at the Best Buy website. The $330 price is for the base Wifi-only model with 32GB storage.

The prices increase as usual with more storage, the 128GB goes for $430 (the usual +$100 storage tier bump). Meanwhile the 32GB Cellular model goes for $460 and the 128GB Cellular goes for $560 (the usual +$130 bump).

OF photography interest is support for the Apple Pencil. The Apple pencil is NOT included. It is also compatible with the upcoming Logitech Crayon.

The iPads are still not available for purchase by Amazon itself (various 3rd-party sellers offer them but not Amazon itself), so the iPad tablet market is still doing okay. If they were close to the panic button, they’d be sold by Amazon itself as well 🙂

Lifetime VPN subscriptions for $40 (five devices) or $69 (unlimited)

If you have need of VPNs, and prefer lifetime subscriptions instead of annual, two of the top three Best Sellers at Stacksocial are lifetime subscription VPNs.

It supports Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, and Windows Phone too! Lifetime is defined as 100 years. The terms under “Specs” have this LOL:

“Lifetime’ subscription adds 100 years of unlimited access to VPN servers. KeepSolid will gladly extend this period by your request.”

On the other hand if you have a lot of devices and you like to upgrade and trade and switch phones and laptops and tablets often, the Windscribe VPN: Lifetime Pro Subscription costs $69 and you can have as many devices as you like. It supports Windows, OS X, Linux and iOS. Android app is “coming soon” per the specs. The lifetime must be renewed every ten years with a Support request. Was this VPN created by former DMV employees? 🙂
