Fighting the trend, Android tablet manufacturers had a good Black Friday
Android flavored tablets. Android tablets increased volume sales by a whopping 177%, but because prices were down on average to $151 from $219, revenue rose 91%. Some of those sales came at the expense of notebook computers. These smaller computer models showed a 10% decline in sales. Apple branded models were flat while Windows powered notebooks dropped 10%. A vast majority of notebook sales, 89%, were Windows 8 devices and fetched an average selling price of $368. Android tablets had a huge price advantage over the computers in this area on Black Friday.
Cyber Monday did better with record online sales of $1.46 billion on the Monday following Black Friday. Free shipping was a big driver of online sales and half of all transactions included it, which led to additional orders being placed by shoppers.
