Best Buy Black Friday ad surfaces, reveals $50 Galaxy S III on AT&T and Sprint

As we inch closer and closer to November 23rd (Black Friday in retail speak), all of those wonderful Black Friday ads begin to slowly get leaked. Today the Best Buy ad has found its way to my desk. While we revealed on Monday that ‘The Shack’ would be selling the Samsung Galaxy S III on Sprint for $50 on a new 2-year contract, it looks like Best Buy will be doing the same for the Sprint version but they’ll be beating The Shack’s AT&T Galaxy S III price by $50 and offering it for $50 as well (16GB version).

Other devices of mention are the DROID RAZR MAXX 4G for free on contract, Samsung Galaxy S II for $1 on contract, and a Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 for $179 before a $20 gift card. I know a lot of you are getting your Black Friday plans together so keep checking back here as we’ll be summing up all the deals for you when the dust settles.

[Deal] Best Buy has the Samsung Galaxy S III on sale tomorrow for $99 for the third and final day

by Robert Nazarian on
tagged , , , , ,

Best Buy recently ran one day specials on the Galaxy S III for both new customers and upgrades. Priced at $99, you can’t argue that it was a tremendous deal. If you’re feeling left out, don’t fret, Best Buy is going to run it again tomorrow, and I am told it’s the final day. On the last two occasions, the T-Mobile version was left out in the cold, but this time it’s not. Unfortunately the Sprint version is stranded for this one. So for tomorrow, November 2, it’s the Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile versions that are on sale for $99. If you’re in the market for a Galaxy S III, I urge you to take this one up. Yes, it’s possible you will find a similar deal this Black Friday, but who wants to deal with the crowds. Just head over to your nearest Best Buy store or Best Buy Mobile and get it done.

LG Spectrum 2 revealed on Best Buy site

tagged , , , ,

In a bit of a change of pace as far as “leaks” go about new devices, this one comes to us courtesy a big box retailer. In this case, Best Buy has established the product page for the LG Spectrum 2 smartphone. It is not clear whether this is some mistake on the part of Best Buy or a sign that they are getting a jump on Verizon. The product page confirms many of the hardware specs we thought would be present in the LG Spectrum 2. These include a 1.5GHz Snapdragon dual-core processor, a 4.7-inch, 1280×720 HD display, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and 4G LTE capability. This is not surprising as the Spectrum 2 is mostly a rebadged LG Optimus LTE II. » Read the rest

Best Buy to sell Insignia Flex Tablet in November for $239 to $259, sources confirm

by Colton Kaiser on
tagged , ,

Last weekend we reported that Best Buy was gearing up to launch its in-house Insignia Flex Tablet with a 1GHz dual-core processor and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. New information suggests that the world’s biggest retailer plans to launch the device for $239 to $259, slating the 9.7-inch tablet in between competitors like Amazon’s line of Kindle Fires, Google’s own Nexus 7 and Apple’s upcoming iPad mini.

Best Buy has used its Insignia brand to provide cheaper alternatives to customers looking for HDTVs, Blu-Ray players, speakers, as well as various other consumer electronics. Having been an owner of an Insignia television, I can’t necessarily vouch for its build quality, as it only lasted for a few months before completely self-destructing. However, that’s not to say that Best Buy hasn’t upped its efforts with the new tablet, but we won’t know until the device makes its debut on November 11th.

Best Buy to launch 9.7-inch Insignia Flex Tablet with Android 4.0 November 11th

by Colton Kaiser on
tagged , , ,

In an announcement made earlier today, Best Buy has revealed plans to launch its first in-house tablet. The company unveiled the Insignia Flex Tablet in a photo on its Facebook page, noting that the slate would launch with a a 9.7-inch display, a dual-core 1GHz processor and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich next month.

Unfortunately, the big-box retailer failed to mention any specifics, including pricing or storage capacity. Although, considering it’s being branded as an Insignia product, it will most likely be marketed at the lower-budget tablet market. The device is set to launch November 11th in brick and mortar Best Buy stores across the globe.

[Deal] Grab the Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint Samsung Galaxy S III for $99 at Best Buy this Sunday

The Samsung Galaxy S III is the hottest Android phone right now, and I know a lot you are looking to pick one up before the holidays. Well here’s your chance to grab a Black Friday like deal without dealing with the crowds. For one day, this Sunday, Best Buy will have the Galaxy S III on sale for $99. That’s this Sunday, October 14 and only that day. We actually could have posted this yesterday, but I was awaiting information from Best Buy PR as to which carriers and if upgrades were accepted. They told me that only the Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint version will be on sale and the good news is that upgrades are allowed as long as your are eligible and willing to sign the new 2-year agreement. I’m not sure why T-Mobile is left out of this one, but you can certainly head to your local Best Buy or Best Buy Mobile store this Sunday to see if this information is wrong. You will have your choice of Pebble Blue or Marble White. Unfortunately the AT&T Garnett Red is not included. Let us know if you pick one up.

Could Best Buy start selling an unlocked GSM Samsung Galaxy S III in the near future?

by Macky Evangelista on
tagged , ,

A “supposed” snapshot photo of a Best Buy computer screen has implied that the retailer could start selling the unlocked GSM Samsung Galaxy S III in stores. In the photo, the “model” is clearly shown as the I9300, which of course is the unlocked variant of the Galaxy S III. While I think it would be great if this were true, there’s several aspects of the photo that says otherwise. The “begin” date for the sale shows May 25th of this year, which of course has already passed. Also, in the “inventory” section everything is shown as “0″, even the “on order” is shown as 0, thus assuming that they’re not expecting any device units to be shipped to them.

Last but not least, the hefty price tag of $799.99 before taxes is far too steep when it’s cheaper on other online retailers. What do you guys think about this? Does this look valid or is it just “much ado about nothing?”

Nexus 7 pre-orders now live at numerous retailers

Here at TalkAndroid we’re counting down the days until we can get our hands on the Nexus 7 and the Jelly Bean goodness that comes with it. With around a week to go before the world can grab the latest and greatest Android tablet direct from Google’s Play Store, a number of high street retailers will also be joining the party. Best Buy, Future Shop and Staples have all added pre-order pages to their respective websites. Curiously only the 16GB variation is available at this time and it remains to be seen as to whether or not the 8GB model will make a belated appearance. At $259.99 the price is identical to the price you pay if you buy direct from Google however it doesn’t appear that you’ll get your hands on that $25 Google Play credit sweetener. If you’re itching with anticipation then you might want to order from Staples who claim stock will arrive on July 14th. Both Best Buy and Future Shops list August 10th for stock.

Have you got your pre-order in already? Will you be going direct through Google? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
