Who's ready for some Black Friday deals? If you are the type to wake up at 4:00 AM and stand in the cold while fighting off hoards of shopping Mom and Dads during Black Friday, or just really want a new Android tablet then you'll want to pay attention to Best Buy. They've already released a few ads showing off a couple deals for Black Friday coming up in a few weeks and they've now appeared on every BF website you can think of. We have the pictures below.

The deal I'm most interested in is posted in the photo above. The ASUS Eee Pad Transformer tablet for only $249. They'll also have tons of other Android goodies on sale and I'm sure we'll see even more deals as the day grows closer. You'll also notice the Toshiba Thrive for $279, the Iconia A100 Tab coming in around $189 and tons and tons of phones for FREE.

Be sure to look over the photos in the gallery below because Best Buy Mobile will also be offering tons of popular Android phones like the DROID Incredible 2, the Samsung Stratosphere and a few more for free with new 2-year contracts of course. We expect to see plenty of deals from Best Buy and many other big box retailers so be sure and check back often as we'll be posting anything good regarding Android. This is perfect timing for Best Buy to clear some stock and make way for the new ASUS Transformer Prime quad-core Tegra 3 tablet. I'll be eying that come this holiday season. Will you?

    So is the Toshia Thrive $279 by itself? or is it $279 w/ a 2 year contract? or is it $279, but if you activate it w/ a 2-year contract w/ Verizon Mobile Hotspot it goes from $279 to $179?

      The Thrive is a Wifi only device.

        That doesn’t answer my question. A Mobile hotspot (Well at least from my phone is a WiFi hotspot), & if the Toshiba Thrive is a WiFi only device, that doesn’t answer my question.

        $279 for the Toshiba Thrive tablet — free and clear (i. e. no contract). This is a WiFi only device, but it has no business relationship with service provider. It’s the same operational model as an iPod touch.

        Thank you. That’s a clear answer I was looking for.

        you’re an ass

        No one was unclear.  You just don’t know how WiFi works.

        Retailers do sometimes bundle a wifi-only tablet with a hotspot in order to get the cheap price on the tablet.  Verizon did that with wifi-only iPads (+ their hotspot) before they got the Verizon 3g iPads.

        I guess people are saying that Best Buy is not doing that here.

    Hello,
    Do you have this actual paper? I tried to find this info online and did not have any luck!!! So are you sure about this deal?

  • Aunketeduela

    Your wrong! The price for the tablet is deducting $100.00 if you sign a 2 year contract with verizon. It clearly says it on the top of the pic!

  • Agamemnon

    Best Buy Corporate confirmed to me that the Verizon deal is $100 off the price listed in the ad.  Unfortunately, though, there’s been some waffling between different reps as to whether or not the tablet deals will be available online or if they’re in-store only.

    with coupon code SDEALS070 on http://www.buydig.com. you can save $70 bringing it down to $299 then i think it is $8 shipping for the 16GB. I just used it so it works as of a few minutes ago!
