Asus Eee Pad Transformer

The Black Friday ad for Best Buy has been leaked a little early, and it looks like the electronics store will be offering some very deep discounts on a couple of Android tablets.

The Asus Eee Pad Transformer, for instance, will be available for $249.99. The tablet has a list price of $400 and features a 10.1 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel IPS display, a 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and Android 3.2 Honeycomb operating system.

Sure, the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime will be available starting in December for about $500, but if you don’t need a quad-core processor, the original Transformer is a pretty great deal at half the price.

Other great deals include:

  • $100 for the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Keyboard Dock (which is about $50 off)
  • Acer Iconia Tab A100 7″ Honeycomb tablet for $190 (normally $330)
  • Toshiba Thrive 10″ Honeycomb tablet for $280 (normally $400)
  • Gateway 10″ netbook w/Atom CPU, Win 7 Starter, 4 hour battery for $150 (normally $200 – $300)
  • Barnes & Noble NOOK Simple Touch Reader for $80 (normally $100)

Bargain hunters can also get $100 off any tablet with the purchase of a Verizon mobile hotspot and a 2-year service contract.

Most of these bargains will be available in stores, but Best Buy will also be offering a discounted Dell Streak 7 tablet with Google Android 3.2 Honeycomb online starting Thursday at The ad doesn’t mention the actual price.

You can find more details at Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving, which falls on Friday, November 25th this year.
