5 Things to Buy on Presidents Day

Mobile phones

The Consumer Electronics Show is just the tech industry's way of telling you that the device you're carrying around each day is now as much of an afterthought as the giant antenna-laden brick of a phone Zack Morris used to carry around on Saved By The Bell.

Though the big tech party in Vegas was more than a month ago, the fruits of those festivities are just making their way to stores and sites. Time writer Mark DiVincenzo issued a standing order to buy mobile phones in February in his book Buy Shoes on Wednesday and Tweet at 4:00.

Usually he's right and carriers such as Verizon (VZ - Get Report), AT&T (T - Get Report), Sprint (S) and T-Mobile offer their two-for-one deals around this time of year. Dealnews isn't so sure, however, and suggests savvy shoppers await the results of the Mobile World Congress in Spain this month. Even with a relatively weak phone showing at CES and decelerating sales of the iPhone 5, this is still a time nervous retailers waiting for tech's other shoe to drop will tinker with pricing a bit.
