What did you get on Black Friday / Cyber Monday?

What did you get on Black Friday / Cyber Monday?
The two biggest shopping days this Holiday season are over - the Black Friday craziness came and passed, and you could still catch up with deals on Cyber Monday yesterday. That is all over now.

With all sorts of deals on mobile gadgets, what did you get?

As a quick recap, there were sales on almost everything, starting from the iPad from Apple, going through Samsung’s virtually entire lineup, and ending up with carrier-specific deals. And if you were in the mood for experimenting with a new platform, the newest Windows Phone 8 devices, the HTC 8X and Nokia’s Lumias’ prices were slashed as well.

And don’t just brag about your purchases (that’s welcome as well, of course!) - share your shopping experience. Tell us about the Black Friday craziness. How did it go? When did you line up and how long did you wait? And finally, would you do it again, or not? 

Sound off in the comments section right below.

Could not you please tell us (if not too personal info), what was the price for the ipad and the iphone? Just curious to know the real data, not the internet one. I do trust you, you looks like a real person! :)

Same...The Target website currently has the PS3 at 200 plus four (relatively old) games included. Great price but just doesn't have the money for it.
