There are a few fabulous Black Friday tech deals floating around the net. Amazon is gifting shoppers with an $89 offer on the Kindle 2 starting at Noon EST tomorrow. It’s the last-gen model of Amazon’s e-reader, but still gets a lot of usage from Dave, who picked up the same model this year for $139. More discerning digital readers might prefer the newer-version Kindle, however, with the E Ink Pearl display (same as the Nook) for a higher contrast screen and quicker page refresh.
If video is more your thing, check out Roku’s offer of 20% off the Roku XD. The deal starts tonight at 3 AM EST (Midnight PST), and runs through the end of Cyber Monday. You know how we feel about Roku here at ZNF, so obviously we recommend this one if you’re looking for an Internet video box this season. It’s got 1080p playback, Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon video, and an 802.11n wireless connection. What more could you want?
Finally, if you’ve been thinking about trying out wireless charging, Powermat might just have the right deal to get you on board. While the company’s got a handful of offers, the most compelling is the charging system for the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS at $40. This includes both the iPhone receiver case and a portable charging mat. For most compatible devices you have to buy the case separately from the charging mat, and that can add up quickly. A mere $40 for the whole system is a steal.
Happy Turkey Day! And happy shopping.
