Black Friday is upon us. As we make the turkey sandwiches and eat that last slice of pie. Let's see what the best Black Friday deals are by category.
Best Black Friday Tablet Deals
The 70% off 10.1" 32GB Motorola Xoom tablet for $199 is the top of the list for tablets with broadband wireless access. A data contract is required from Verizon Wireless. Free activation online for Fridays through Mondays.
The next best tablet deal is you can 32 GB HP TouchPad for $149.99 with purchase of HP notebook computer from Walmart.com. Buyers on Black Friday/Saturday can also get the HP GB TouchPad with more varied HP computer choices for $149.99 at at OfficeDepot.com.
Best Black Friday-Weekend to Cyber Monday Overall Sale on Many Many Smartphones Across Carriers
Amazon Wireless Penny-Pincher sale with all smartphones/cell phones (except iPhone) for one cent is truly amazing. The deal depending on the model of smartphone is best for new customers to the carrier. Renewing customers can save $50-$100 off the retail price of the phone depending on the model.
Best Novelty Deal from a Carrier that Never Was Samsung Galaxy Nexus $199
Today, a Flash animated ad surfaced with the same holiday design as the current Verizon Black Friday ads showing a Samsung Galaxy Nexus for $199.99. The price is way below previous suspected pricing for the delayed Behemoth with dual-core processor and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. It would have been a great sale, but alas the sale that never happened and would have ended November 29. The animation is cute to watch because snow falls. It could be bogus but kept some dreams alive. Android spies contend that it is proof that the Samsung Galaxy Nexus has been delayed. Mmmmn...Let's see the announcement at CTIA was delayed, many of the 4G LTE smartphones on Verizon Wireless have been delayed this year.
Best Catchy Phrase Retailer Promotions
The Wirefly Black Friday "Free for All" with over 40 phones for free means saving up to $200. The phones are free for new accounts, upgrades and add-a-lines. For Verizon Wireless the incred-a-buys are for the LG Revolution, BlackBerry Torch 9650 and Droid X2 which come with free car charger. For Sprint there's free activation and a $25 card for the latest EVO models. For T-Mobile, the new myTouch models come with free activation and Bluetooth headset. We think the phrase "Free for All" is catchier than "Penny-Pincher."
Best Prepaid Deals
Cricket has some major reductions on smartphones $100 off the a Samsung Vitality ($99), the ZTE Score for $69 and the ZTE Chorus for $49.99.
