Best Buy’s Black Friday offer will have to be special enough to match what the likes of Walmart and Staples have to offer, for example. Well, it appears that they have some interesting tablets to offer, among others. This year, the whole Black Friday thing seems to be starting earlier than usual, with leaks and announcements about special offers already happening.
Best Buy has started sending out emails with its future details and a link to go check them out. In the tablets area we find the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 8 GB, nabi 2, Amazon Kindle Fire 8 GB, the 16 GB Kindle Fire HD 16 GB, Acer Iconia 16 GB and the ASUS Transformer Pad TF300. Accessories are also listed, even those for iPads, but no iPads are listed for sale, since Apple is not part of such special rushes, being “premium” and all… The ASUS Transformer Pad 300 is particularly appealing from that list, being on sale for $100 off the $379 price tag.
The keyboard dock of the slate is on sale for $99, so you get the tablet plus dock for $150 less than usual. Considering you get more than 16 hours of battery life out of that combo, it’s a very solid purchase, if you ask me. Expect all major tablets (except for the iPad and the Surface RT) to get price drops of anywhere between $50 and $100!
