A company called Coremetrics has now offered up some details on the product purchased on the two busy shopping days and an indication of how sales in 2011 stacked up to 2010 and 2009. Except for a big spike early in the morning in 2009, sales this year were higher almost hour for hour compared to the two previous years.

According to the company, the mobile devices that were the most popular were the iPhone and iPad making up almost 14.3% of all Black Friday online retail traffic.
