Black Friday: Best Buy Mobile salesAlex Wagner - Editorial Director of News and Content
We've already seen the carriers step up with some great Black Friday deals, but you know that Best Buy isn't going to stand by and have all of the fun. There will be some deals to be had at Best Buy for just about anyone in the market for a new cell phone, so let's start with the smartphones. First up, both the HTC DROID Incredible and Samsung Fascinate for Verizon will be available for just $1 with a two-year contract, which is pretty incredible (Zing!) when you remember that they normally retail for $149.99 and $199.99, respectively. Both Verizon and Sprint's Galaxy Tabs will be available for $549.99, a $50 savings, while Sprint's LG Optimus S will be on sale for the low, low price of $0 on contract and the Samsung Transform will set you back $70 and include a free accessory pack. Finally, the BlackBerry Torch for AT&T will have its price cut to only $49.99 on contact, a $50 savings.
If you're not in the mood for a smartphone, there will also be some feature phones on sale at Best Buy, like the Samsung Intensity II for Verizon, which will be free on contract and include a free accessory set, too. The Pantech Laser, which we've crowned as the top messaging phone on AT&T, will be available for free on contract, as well. Rounding out the messaging phones, Best Buy has the LG Rumor Touch for Virgin Mobile at $69.99, the Samsung Rant in red on Boost Mobile for $49.99, and the LG Prime AT&T GoPhone for $59.99. There will also be some accessories on sale, like Rocketfish iPhone 4 cases for $9.99 apiece and a Plantronics Voyager Pro Bluetooth headset for $49.99.
Best Buy, like the carriers, has some pretty hot deals on both smartphones and messaging phones. My favorites have to be the DROID Incredible and Fascinate (which comes in both black and white) for only $1 each and the Pantech Laser and its awesome AMOLED for free. The Incredible may not be the newest phone on the market, but with Android 2.2, Sense, and its 1GHz processor, it's still an extremely capable little phone. The Fascinate, on the other hand, is still pretty new, and it, too, packs a 1GHz chip, though with the Fascinate you're getting a 4-inch, Super AMOLED display, too. So, is anyone planning a stop at Best Buy for a new handset?
