Apple iPad Air scores 51% increase in sales over the Black Friday weekend
Data from Localytics released on Tuesday, reveals that sales of the Apple iPad Air soared 51% during the Black Friday weekend when compared to the prior weekend's number. Another big winner for Apple was the Apple iPhone 5c. Sales of the device rose 26% during the same time period as did sales of the Apple iPad mini.

Other winners during the Black Friday weekend include the Amazon Kindle Fire HD. The 7 inch slab saw its sales rise 23% from weekend to weekend while the Samsung Galaxy S4 was next with growth in sales of 20%. That was followed by the new Apple iPad mini with Retina display. Despite being scarce, the tablet saw sales rise 17% last weekend.

Rounding out the last three devices listed by the metrics firm, the Apple iPhone 5s saw sales increase 15% from weekend to weekend while the Apple iPhone 4s had a 10% improvement. An 8% growth in sales was seen for the 7 inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 2.

I would suggest Phonedog because of Aaron Baker, but they're a little slow on reporting news.

I like phonedog too but they seem to be US oriented only. Pocketnow, android authority and gsmarena are good too !

Why read for one? Also why post something negative? They pull articles from all major websites.

Dude you totally have no life. You're spending too much time here whining about apple to have one. Telling a tech site to go F itself for reporting tech news. That's like telling Wendy's to go F itself, for selling burgers.

I'm with the OP on this one cause to be honest, this is one retarded article. If it compared iPad sales to last year's thanksgiving day sale then it would have merit....but to a no name week RIGHT before thanksgiving where everyone is saving money for the thanksgiving day sale....come on. Literally EVERYTHING probably grew in sales because EVERYTHING was on sale. They even mention in the article who the "others" were, but who cares because we all knew they would. That is why this article is retarded, the reason they went with the Apple headline is because they know how to bait people now.

Now watch this, I am now predicting that next week the iPad will not sell nearly as much as this week. Nor will the S4, and the kindle and the battery powered underwear. For my excellent analysis (and newly found prestigious title of analyst) I will be expecting my ginormous check from PA in the mail soon (better yet do a direct deposit, pm for info).

It's no surprise to me that your ignorance is showing on epic proportions
When I go into Wendys There is an even selection of items on the menu ...Not one of the same kind of burger appearing many times ...Obviously don't know the definition of the word bias ....Dude college is waiting for for you

Irony: someone with almost 8,000 posts in less than 3 years on one tech website telling someone else that he has no life.

51% wow, awesome! this is so wonderful, i am so happy for the highest margin company ever! they deserve it all, they put out 3 products that really are the same product with slightly different sizes! then, yearly, they make oh so the slightest modification that only serve to better their margins, ignoring the competition or customer needs but always in a effort to better the year befores highest of high margins. World beating margins, my name is apple, i rape and pillage my user base yearly! love alan and ray

Whats the problem with more Apple articles?

No one is forcing you people to click on them. There are tons of sites dedicated to NON APPLE articals and news. Go take a hike there lol so you don't have to wait for your specific brand of choice write ups, since that's what you guys are looking for.

That's not my point at all. PA is on a rehashing anything about Apple spree. Count how many articles are about Apple from Thanksgiving to now, and I can assure you it's over 20.

They are reporting news and that graph has other devices as well. If they were on top, I am pretty sure this article would have been different.

Sales up 51% on Black Friday. And all the sales and $100 gift cards had nothing to do with it?
