Black Friday Predictions: No iPad, iPhone Sales; TV Sales to Depend on Timing

A 2010 Black Friday predictions report from dealnews (at said discounts will be smaller this holiday season than in that of 2009, and without much-desired deals on 3D TVs and Apple’s iPad and iPhone 4. Apple’s Black Friday sales are likely to disappoint for the third year standing, the report said. Shoppers may find up to 10% off of iMac, MacBook and iPod products, but not for the iPad or iPhone 4. The report said shoppers looking for those products should instead seek a no-minimum, free shipping discount online, which is likely to be offered. The report said to expect 46-inch and 47-inch 1080p LCD HDTVs starting at $499 and 55-inch TVs at $799. But the report said those deals will be on smaller-name TVs, while high-end brand TV sales may have to wait until December. “Each year, it becomes more and more evident that the Black Friday shopping experience is no longer a one-time event; consumers are constantly seeking out the best deals to take advantage of well into December,” said Daniel de Grandpre, editor in chief, dealnews. “While we expect discounting to be somewhat lighter from years past, online deals continue to be the best and easiest way to save, and dealnews looks forward to helping consumers find those deals and keep more cash in the bank this holiday season.” Source: Billy Gil –
