Black Friday 2011 :AT&T Unveils their Hottest Deals

AT&T isn’t saying much about its offers for Black Friday itself, only that touchscreen devices, including tablets, will start a “unbelievably low prices.”

But those looking to get a Windows 7 phone can grab them on Saturday, Nov. 26, for one cent. On what has been called Cyber Monday, the company will also be offering the Motorola Atrix, Samsung Infuse, BlackBerry 9810, HTC Inspire and LG Thrill for a penny.

The phones, of course, require a two-year contract commitment with a voice plan and a minimum data plan of $15 a month.

Though the economic recovery is still somewhat anemic, more shoppers plan to open their wallets this year on Black Friday or the weekend following it, as Bloomberg News reports:

About 74 million consumers, or a third, say they’re “definitely” planning to shop during the three days following Thanksgiving on Nov. 24, up from 27 percent last year, according to the survey conducted for the National Retail Federation by BIGresearch. Another 77 million say they’ll weigh the offerings first before deciding whether to venture out.

Chains including Target Corp., Macy’s Inc. and Best Buy Co. have announced plans to open on Thanksgiving to capture holiday sales that the NRF says may rise 2.8 percent this year, or about half of last year’s gain. Retailers dangle doorbusters and other specials on the day after Thanksgiving, called Black Friday, to lure shoppers trolling for bargains.
