Thanksgiving Day e-commerce hit $1.062 billion in online sales and saw an 18% increase year-over-year. Black Friday online sales also reached $1.93 million with a 39% increase year-over-year.

And mobile devices produced an all-time high of online sales on both dual-billion dollar days.

Android devices just got a minor 4.9 percent share of mobile driven online sales. Only $148 million online sales got transacted through Android devices. $106 million were generated through Android phones and $42 million via Android tablets.

“Online shopping data shows that consumers took full advantage of their mobile devices to shop on Thanksgiving Day and ‘omnishop’ while in stores on Black Friday,” said Tamara Gaffney, principal analyst, Adobe Digital Index, Adobe. “In an attempt to play every angle possible, retailers poured money into new mobile capabilities by adding Wi-Fi to key stores, expanding mobile app offerings, and optimizing websites for easier transactions from small screens. The results were record online sales driven by tablets and smart phones this year.”

Amazon, iPad, NFL and Sony's PS 4 generated strong social media traffic on Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday. Amazon was the topmost reference retailer with nearly 450,000 posts. Walmart took second place with a similar number of posts. Playstation 4 generated more than 300,000 mentions. Sony's PS4 generated almost three times more social media traffic on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, YouTube and other social media sites than Microsoft’s Xbox One.
