Black Friday is almost upon us (November 29th, 2013 for those of you who may have forgotten) and as always this means people are out hunting for all the best deals that they can find. When it comes to Android products, there’s a plethora of deals to be had not only on Black Friday but on Thanksgiving Thursday, Cyber Monday and over the weekend as well.
So like we try to do every year, we’ve collected as many of the Android related deals that we could find for this Black Friday. Some sales will begin on Thanksgiving Thursday as well and, of course, all of these items listed here are subject to the usual ‘while supplies last’ rule. Some of these may also be time limited offers and various other factors could apply as well such as in-store pick-up only. We’ve tried to make sure that all the important details are here so you’re as informed as we can possibly get you. That way you can just worry about getting the gear you want for the best prices.
We will be making a list for Cyber Monday in a separate post but don’t be surprised if some of these deals for Black Friday end up on that list as well. We’ve divided this up by retailer for better organization.
