Video shows why it's best to shop for a new smartphone at home on Black Friday
A video of an unruly mob of Walmart shoppers shows why it is best to avoid going to the stores on Black Friday. Your best bet is to use your mobile device to get access to the deals. As IBM revealed in a report on Thanksgiving, more people are using their smartphone or tablet to take advantage of the sales seen on this day.

The footage below was shot at a Walmart in Moultrie, Georgia and shows shoppers fighting over boxes of discounted smartphones. Watch the guy in the middle grab a box away from a helpless female shopper. We can't seem to find out which handset was on sale, but Walmart has announced that it rang up 10 million transactions between 8pm Thursday evening and 12 midnight with electronics the top seller.

Which smartphone would you be willing to fight for in a mob of crazed shoppers?
