With Black Friday upon us, it’s time to start narrowing down where we are all heading to get the best deals on smartphones. If you were leaning towards an HTC One, which is still a reasonable option for new smartphone buyers, Verizon and Sprint will be selling them for $29.99 on contract Friday and Saturday only (11/29-11/30). Starting today (11/25) through 11/28, the device can be purchased for $49.99, and then December 1 through December 7 for the same price. (more…)
Verizon’s Black Friday ad has been posted online, giving potential device buyers the inside scoop as to which phones they may want to pick up in time for the holidays. Interestingly enough, the deals don’t seem to be all that great, but they are definitely better than your everyday prices, so let’s check them out and see what might be the best bang for your hard-earned buck.

Verizon’s Black Friday ad is out and includes a couple of decent deals. First, as you can see in the image above, Verizon and Motorola are releasing a special edition “cranberry” color for the original DROID RAZR. No, this is not the new RAZR HD, but the same RAZR that was released a year ago. As you may recall, they did something similar last year with the Incredible 2, so this could be a new trend from Big Red.
But speaking of the “cranberry” RAZR, it’s free, along with the Galaxy Nexus and LG Lucid (with a new 2-year contract). The Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) is $99, however, we thought Verizon had done away with contracts on tablets, so we are a big confused at this price. You will also find some decent accessory deals this Friday, including a Jambox for 50% off (after you buy a new phone).
Oh, the DROID DNA also made an appearance as it goes on sale Wednesday.
Rather than waiting for it to leak, Best Buy went ahead and posted up a preview of their Black Friday deals, this morning. There are 22 pages of deals in this preview, many of which involve Android devices. You’ll find tablets like the Transformer Pad for $279, original RAZR MAXX for free, Galaxy S3 on Sprint for $48, and the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 for $179. Beyond that, you’ll find TVs, appliances, tons of Windows 8 computers, and other media devices. It’s an intense Black Friday ad, so be sure to check it out.

Sam’s Club is now the owner of the “Best Black Friday Deal Award” for the time being. According to their Black Friday ad, they plan to sell the Samsung Galaxy S3 for 96 cents ($0.96) the day after Thanksgiving. Yes, if you are a part of the club, you can pick up the hottest phone of the year for less than a dollar, as long as you are down to sign a new 2-year contract. Talk about a steal.
They will also have the Galaxy Tab 2 7″ and 10″ tablets for $179 and $299, respectively.
More Black Friday ads have started to appear online, so as we promised yesterday while posting RadioShacks ad, we will try to point out all that have good Android deals. In the case of Staples and Kmart, there aren’t many, unless you want older tablets or ones that are made by some off-brand that you wouldn’t dare trust. (more…)
In a little over two weeks, Black Friday will be upon us. Over the last couple of years, we have seen this day become flooded with deals on the latest and greatest in Android products, something that likely won’t change this year. In fact, RadioShack’s ad has already been posted for the world to see, and as expected, includes a number of Android smartphones at rock bottom prices. (more…)
If you aren’t buying into a “Nexus delay” that we have talked about time and time again over the last week, maybe this will help. According to an ad campaign that is running across a variety of sites who are a part of the NetShelter ad network, the Galaxy Nexus should have already been available to the public and on-sale for Black Friday (today) at the low price of $199 on 2-year contract ($100 cheaper than the expected $299 price). So you know, Verizon runs almost all of their major marketing campaigns through NetShelter, so this isn’t just some random network putting out a Black Friday deal to grab attention. This was going to be one spicy deal.
But now, thanks to unconfirmed reasons, the phone won’t be available today. The latest date we have seen from Verizon is December 8. Will we be dancing in G-Nex juice come that day? We’ll just have to wait and see.
Update: As some have requested, we should talk more about the significance of this price. Has Verizon seen the light and decided to offer their first 4G LTE Android 4.0 device at just $199? Maybe. Was this a Black Friday deal only? Maybe. Is this the 16GB version at $199 with the 32GB version still dropping in at $299? Could be a possibility too. There is no way to tell from this ad. Would be nice to see this price stick for good though, wouldn’t it?
