In the market for a new Android device? Then perhaps you should wait until Best Buy’s Black Friday sale which appears to include many Android devices in its list of discounted deals. Best Buy has not officially announced the deals yet, but its details have supposedly been leaked.
The discounts cover four areas: smartphones, tablets, accessories, and other Android-based devices. The smartphone deals include a free Motorola Droid RAZR Max if users sign up for a two-year contract from Verizon. This gives users a savings of $149.99. Signing up for a two-year contract from Sprint entitles one to purchase the 16GB Samsung Galaxy S3 for only $48, which translates to a discount of $151.99. A two-year contact with AT&T lets one purchase the same device for the slightly higher price of $49.99. Registering for a two-year contract with Sprint brings down the price of the Samsung Galaxy S2 to only a dollar. Meanwhile, on Boost Mobile, Samsung’s 2011 flagship will cost only $299.99 without a contract, amounting to a $70 price slash. Next, the ZTE Warp without a contract will only cost $64.99 from Boost Mobile, granting a $65 discount. Those interested in the HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE, meanwhile, may purchase the smartphone for a dollar with a two-year contract from Verizon. The LG Optimus Elite from Virgin Mobile will purportedly cost only $49.99 without a contract, marking an $80 price decrease. The Sony Xperia TL from AT&T is also said to be part of the discounted deals list, but its price is still unknown.
As for the tablets, the price of the 8GB Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 will drop to only $179.99, which is $70 less than its original cost. This offer also throws in a $20 Best Buy Gift Card for free. The nabi 2 Tablet, for its part, will retail for $169.99. The 7-inch Land Ice Cream Sandwich tablet is also part of the list, but its price remains to be announced. Two Amazon products are included, as well: the 8GB Amazon Kindle Fire will have a price of $159.99 whereas the 16GB Amazon Kindle Fire HD will cost $199.99. Both products come with a $30 Best Buy Gift Card. The 16GB Acer Iconia Tab A200 will offer consumers a $100 discount with its $249.99. The same may be said for the 16GB Asus EeePad Transformer TF300T, as well, which will cost only $279.99.
The Samsung Galaxy Player 3.6 is said to offer a $50 price slash with its $99.99 price. Other Samsung Galaxy Android media players will likewise have a discount of the same value.
The prices of accessories like the Rocketfish Stylus, Asus Keyboard Docking Station, SanDisk microSDHC cards, Beats by Dr. Dre headphones and speakers, and the Jawbone Jambox Wireless Bluetooth Speakerphone have lowered, as well.
According to an advertisement, Best Buy’s sale starts at 12 midnight on November 23. Other retailers which are offering discounts on Android devices this coming Black Friday include Staples, Kmart, Sam’s Club, and Radio Shack. However, if the leaked details are accurate, Best Buy appears to have much more options as compared to those offered by the other retailers.
