Nokia E63 3G Smartphone
This phone originally retailed for $250. The deal is good only for the Ultramarine Blue color, not the Ruby Red.
The lightweight E63 covers all the basics of a Smartphone--comfortable QWERTY keypad, e-mail and messaging capabilities, and Internet access using the Symbian 9.2 operating system. The phone forgoes a GPS receiver and preinstalled games to make it an affordable option for users on any cell network.
Magellan Maestro 4700 GPS
You can grab the Magellan Maestro 4700 Bluetooth Portable GPS Navigator for $140 at Amazon.com--a substantial drop from its original price of $300.
The Magellan Maestro line of GPS devices is designed to be heavy on the extra features. The 4700 includes a 4.7-inch touchscreen; maps for the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico; and text-to-speech capability, among other things. The AAA tour book and the One Touch feature are unique to the Magellan line, but the 4700 also sports a Bluetooth phone interface.

With a 10.2-megapixel resolution and an included SAL DT 18mm-55mm zoom lens, this camera is a great bargain.
