Black Friday deals roundup

Black Friday deals roundup
Friday, the 25th, will see one of the busiest shopping days of this year, and there are plenty of deals in mobile to choose from, too. We are listing some of the more compelling of them by carrier in case you are in the market for a new phone or tablet.

We'll try and keep this updated if new stuff comes out, or the terms of the deals change. These prices are for new two-year contracts, of course, and some of them are available right now.

Verizon - no need for much Black Friday here. Amazon Wireless has everything for a penny right now. The flagship LTE handsets Motorola DROID RAZR and DROID BIONIC, plus the HTC Rezound fell to $0.01, the BlackBerry Bold 9930 as well, and the DROID 3 Global is one cent too. Sam's Club gives a helping hand with a $0.96 deal on the Samsung DROID CHARGE. Verizon's deals include an HTC DROID Incredible 2 in killing red for free on Friday only, as well as Motorola XOOM tablet for $199.99

AT&T - a good deal here seems to be $0.01 for the Samsung Galaxy S II on Amazon. The Infuse 4G is a cent on Amazon as well, and it is to be free at Best Buy, while the LTE darlings - Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket and HTC Vivid 4G - are $0.01 on Amazon in their turn.

Sprint - the Motorola PHOTON 4G is $0.01 at Amazon right now. The flagship Samsung Epic 4G Touch is $0.01 at Amazon, much like the HTC EVO 3D 4G.

T-Mobile is left out of the Amazon one cent supersale, with its high-ends there carrying the usual $199.99 price tag, but the Samsung Galaxy S 4G is one cent at Staples.

Apple - Apple is chipping in as usual every year with a Black Friday online promo on 11/25, with iPad 2 savings running up to $40.

Microsoft - the online store is having Windows Phones for free today, so check it out, Amazon has that nasty service cancellation fee in the first six months, after all.

Gameloft - Today through Cyber Monday Gameloft will be offering a game for free each day, but you have to follow its Twitter Android account, since the deal will be active for two hours only, and you don't know when they'll post it

Tablets - Best Buy has a $249.99 Asus Eee Pad Transformer door buster, and the 7" Acer Iconia Tab will be $189.99 there, sulking the Kindle Fire. Staples is having a sale on the 10.1" Acer Iconia Tab for $299.99, while the BlackBerry PlayBook will greet you there with the modest $199.99 price tag, like in Best Buy and Walmart. Best Buy is taking $50 off the Apple iPad 2 today online only as well, which is as good a bargain for an Apple device as you are gonna get.

that's my same thought too. i could go over to att for the GS2, which has higher specs ect, but verizons lte is so much faster and the droid charge isn't a bad phone .

That's a great deal for the att gs2. Heck my other line is eligible for an upgrade. May go buy it and sell it for huge profit.

According to WP central, AT&T is planning a 1 cent sale on all WP devices on Saturday the 25th. Since the Titan is supposed to come out on the 20th, I can only guess that it is included. But I know the Focus S and the Flash both are, along with the 1st Gen Focus and HTC HD7S, though why anyone would grab one of those when the newer ones are out would be beyond me. There are some really great Android deals for Monday listed as well.

Black Friday is the start of Christmas shopping season with a bulk of discount and seasonal deals to boost the sales and many employers treat this day as an official holiday, increasing number of shoppers and risk of more traffic jams for those who are in nick to make best of this deal offering day. Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving Day where merchants offer crazy deals at almost unbelievably low prices.

Radio shack has the SGS2 for 49.99, new contract or upgrade. Nice option if you don't want to deal with the hassle of getting a new line to take advantage of the deal. Or, if like me your ETF is currently larger than the 50 price tag.
