Get a Motorola Cliq Android smartphone for $10

There's a 2-year contract involved, of course, but this is still an incredible bargain on a phone that cost $200 just a few months ago.

I'm no expert when it comes to any phone except the iPhone (and even then I'm more of an "expert"), but I know that Android-powered models have earned a lot of praise.

For example, CNET gave the Motorola Cliq a four-star review and called it "proof that Android handsets are evolving and getting better all the time."

That phone was $199 when it debuted just a few months ago, but right now you can get the Motorola Cliq (Titanium) for just $9.99 shipped (with a 2-year T-Mobile contract). A $35 activation fee also applies.

That's a pretty major savings, so this is something to think about if you're eyeballing a new phone and/or carrier. (Alas, existing T-Mobile customers will have to pony up $149.99. Ouch.)

The Cliq runs Android OS 1.5, but here's good news: According to gadget site Electronista, Motorola will offer an upgrade to Android 2.0.

Like I said, I'm no Android-phone expert, but to me this looks like a mighty solid deal on one of the better "iPhone killers" to date. Let me know if you agree.

Bonus deal: Sorry for the late post today (I'm actually out of the office for once), so here's something extra. GameStop has pre-owned copies of Left 4 Dead 2 (Xbox 360) for $27.99 shipped. That's after applying coupon codes CAG16andSAVER. This game was $60 just two months ago.
