Each year everyone in the US tend to lose their minds, camp out in front of their favorite store until it opens, hurdle shopping carts at times, and try to score the best possible deals they can on Black Friday. They we take to the internet and do it virtually with Cyber Monday, although sometimes we end up in a store or two on that day as well.

Best Buys and Amazon both have their Cyber Monday sales going with everything from TVs, which are standard for Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, to computers, tablets, Android phones, and pretty much everything else. Depending on what you’re looking for, one of these sites should have it.
Samsung has announced that pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy 6 variant of their Gear VR headset will finally be going live starting tomorrow morning. This version of the Gear VR headset can be used with both the Galaxy S6 and the S6 Edge, either one will work with this particular headset.

Samsung’s virtual reality headset, the Gear VR, is now available for purchase over at Best Buy although right now it is through their website only. However it could end up being on store shelves as well depending on how sales go. It’s interesting to see this suddenly appearing at Best Buy for sale though since the Gear VR is still considered to be in the early stages of development.

Best Buy and Hooked Media have apparently teamed up to host an Android game developer contest called Get Discovered!.

Now word is that the Toshiba dual-core Android tablet will also be sold at Best Buy making that the second Tegra tablet for them.
It seems as though the ghostly Nexus S is starting to make public showings… well at least to people in-store. Best Buy first had a bit of a hiccup on their website. It seems as though they got a little excited and accidentally posted an update to the mobile phones section and under T-Mobile there was an area labeled Nexus S and now photos are out!
