Walmart Black Friday Ad features only the Kindle Fire Tablet
 
 

I would have bet a nice sum earlier this year when we worked on Black Friday deal predictions that the Walmart Black Friday Ad would feature Android HoneyComb Tablets. Walmart released the full Black Friday 2011 Ad yesterday and it turns out that Walmart is only featuring the new Amazon Kindle Fire in the ad. Walmart is also not offering any deal on the Kindle Fire despite placing it on the first page of the ad. You pay the regular $199 price. Maybe Walmart thinks that the Kindle Fire will be hard to find by then. That could well be. 

Amazon has reportedly upped their Kindle Fire orders with supplies to to more than 5 million before the end of the year. The Kindle Fire is starting to ship next week on November 15.

So why is Walmart not offering a sub-$300 Tablet deal on the Motorola Xoom or Galaxy Tab? As I outlined in this report yesterday, I expect most Android HoneyComb Tablets to sell for less $300 in the next weeks. Staples for instance will sell the Acer Iconia Tablet for $299 on Black Friday. Walmart might stay away from offering Android Tablet deals as they might not be confident that they really would drive sales. Walmart did though adopt another consumer electronics trend in their Black Friday Ad. The retailer offers 3D TV deals.

We will keep you informed about Black Friday Tablet deals in our Tablet Deals Guide.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
