Thanksgiving is over, but you know what that means - Black Friday is now officially in full effect, and we're seeing some pretty good deals, some of which are getting snatched up in mere seconds (cough, $199.99 Toshiba Thrive).
One of such BF deals is the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc X12 with AT&T 3G frequencies for $319.99. The MSRP is listed at $549.99, and the price before today was somewhere around $370, so if you're looking for a slim and sexy Android Gingerbread device without signing a contract, this phone may very well be for you.
The Arc, which we absolutely loved at CES this year, features the following:
1GHz Scorpion CPU (MSM8255)
Adreno 205 GPU
512MB internal storage
4.2" 854x480 TFT display
8.1MP camera with F2.4 aperture, 720p recording, and Mobile Bravia Engine technology
OK, so it might not be the Galaxy Nexus, but HTC's Wildfire S for Virgin Mobileis a fairly decent smartphone (the carrier's second best option), and it is available off-contract for a fraction of the price of a more high-end handset. Under regular circumstances, the device comes in at just $199.99 without any sort of contract, but from now until Saturday (November 26th), it's half off - $99.99.
Again, that's less than a Benjamin for a fully off-contractWildfire S, complete with:
Android 2.3 (Gingerbread)
A 3.2-inch touch screen
A microSD card slot
A 5.0MP camera
A battery good for 4 hours of talk time/12.5 days of standby
Admittedly, those specs don't quite make for a flagship handset, but then again, it costs under a seventh of the off-contract price of, say, the Galaxy Nexus.
While we've taken a look at a couple of different portable chargers in the past, none have been as powerful as the 11,000mAh packing iCruiser from Trent. This thing is an absolute beast of a charger, sporting enough juice to refuel the typical smartphone over six times!
The iCruiser (ignore the iMoniker, please) is compatible with basically any device you can throw at it - everything from the Galaxy Tab 10.1 to nearly any Android phone, Nintendo DS, and Sony PSP, this thing can handle them all.
This device retails for around $80, so, at nearly $30 off, this is an excellent deal, not to mention a great gift for the juice hog of the family.
Of the many Honeycomb tablets currently on the market, we don't often talk about the Lenovo IdeaPad K1. That doesn't mean it's a bad product -- Lenovo is one of the best names in the business, and If you want to pick up the Honeycomb-powered IdeaPad K1, this is the time to do it. For a limited time, if you grab the K1 and use the coupon code K1KEYFREE at checkout, you'll receive the keyboard dock for absolutely free. That's a pretty solid deal, especially when you can get the grey-framed K1 for a mere $350.
Just because it's affordable, doesn't mean it's lacking in spec, either:
So, yesterday's Thrive deal didn't get the price low enough for you? No worries, Groupon has a deal going where you can grab the 16GB version of the Thrive for $299 + $10 shipping for the next two days.
Like most other 10-inch Android tablets, the Thrive is packing a 1GHz dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, 1GB RAM, and Android Honeycomb. It also sports a full size USB port, miniUSB, and HDMI ports, as well as and SD Card reader and user replaceable battery.
Plan on kicking your current carrier to the curb so you can switch to Big Red and grab the LTE-packin' HTC Rezound? Want to save yourself a hundred bucks in the process? If so, head on over to Amazon Wireless, where you can snag the Rezound for $200 ($229 for existing customers looking to upgrade). Yeah, that's a pretty nice savings, and it definitely beats walking into VZW and dropping three full Benjamins.
Want a refresher on what the Rezound has to offer? Fear not -- we've got your back.

With the Ideapad A1, Lenovo made it easy for those on a tight budget to get a tablet. Sure, it's no Galaxy Tab 10.1 or Transformer, but for kicking back on the couch and surfing the web, watching videos, or playing a game to kill some time, it's just what the doctor ordered. There are two versions available in the US -- 16GB and 32GB -- and the former just underwent a pricedrop over at Amazon. Previously $249, you can now score this little guy for $199.
With quad-core devices on the horizon, the current crop of Honeycomb-powered tablets may seem like old hat -- unless you can score one for a reasonable price, that is. Thus is the case for the Toshiba Thrive, which landed itself a place on eBay's Daily Deals site today. For a modest $330 you can grab the Thrive and its ports-o-plenty, along with 16GB of storage, a 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor, 1GB of RAM, and Android 3.1.
This is by far the best price that we've seen on the Thrive -- no less than $75 cheaper than the previously posted deal.
