According to a report recently released by Rosenblatt Securities, this year’s Black Friday weekend saw consumers purchase 6 million units of Apple’s iPhone X. The flagship device’s total tally in terms of estimated units sold is now at 15 million, which is an impressive number not only because it has only been three weeks since the handset has hit store shelves everywhere, but also because the device happens to be the most expensive smartphone ever released by Apple.
Black Friday starts one week early for ROK Mobile, and its latest deal is a pretty generous one. Beginning today, any new customer who decides to sign up for the Black Friday special offer get a chance to experience three whole months of unlimited voice call minutes, text messaging, and data (with a data prioritization policy beyond the 20 gigabyte limit and video streaming at 480p), all for only $99 for those three months.
Exactly a week before Black Friday arrives, T-Mobile is launching a new buy one get one special offer that basically allows customers to get their hands on another handset (of equal or cheaper price), completely free of charge thanks to a rebate, after deciding to avail of an additional line of service.
It appears that Sprint’s Black Friday special offer for families or groups was a hit, because the wireless carrier has decided to extend the deal. There is no word yet on how long it will be extended, but it is a good bet it will only be for a limited time.
Last Friday, consumers in the United States bought $1.2 billion worth items through their smartphones and tablet devices. This marks the first time ever in the history of the American retail industry that purchases done via mobile devices breached the $1 billionth mark, as pointed out by a report published by Adobe over the weekend. This year’s Black Friday also managed to hit another milestone, with its overall sales (not only via mobile) increasing 21 percent to $3.34 billion, the first time that sales have exceeded $3 billion. And when combining the sales of Black Friday and Thanksgiving Day, Americans spent $5.27 billion.
Sprint has announced its latest Black Friday deal and it may be its best one yet. In this newest offer, mobile users who decide to sign up for Unlimited Freedom get to have their third, fourth, and fifth lines of service free of charge. That’s three free lines with unlimited voice calls, text messaging, and data. So for a family or group consisting of five members, that means enjoying all the video streaming, music streaming, social media, and web surfing they can without having to worry about their data allowances being consumed or overage fees.
Two of the biggest phone makers in the planet right now have decided to join in on the Black Friday frenzy. Apple will be conducting a one day event this week, while its fierce rival Samsung will also be offering customers generous discounts on a range of mobile devices and other electronic products.
