Anyone else want items added to the Black Friday Wishlist?
Thanks.
The Costco is crazy busy, the road there is nuts, and it is farther away. Saving $2-4 is not worth the stress and time to get it at Costco.

Very much appreciate your comments!
So you don't get the mobile version of the site. Sometimes the normal site is better or has the content you are looking for. Some Sites detect you on android and wont let you go any further without downloading their stupid app to view their content. For these sites this trick comes very handy.

B&N will have the Nook Simple Touch for $59 on Black Friday. In-store only. They will throw in a free power adapter.

Buy a $75 gift card first to receive the extra $10 gift card.

I just bought this device earlier this month. I love it! I paid $209 for it. It does everything I want except Hulu+ I've never own a real tablet before just my phone. So when I got it I put every app on it that I wanted on my phone. It works great. You can change the system font using Flip Fonts this is great. I went to XDA and downloaded their NokiaPure font and that improved text reading by 50% for me.

I got a TPU skin off ebay for it and a case from Amazon to keep it in. The case is made for a GPS unit but it fits the SGP5 perfectly when it has a TPU gel case.

The only downside is the softkeys light are super bright in the dark if you are trying to read it can mess with your eyes. I hide mine with a black microfiber cloth that allows me to still use the keys. If you root you can turn these off.

I can say since buying this my KF is just sitting on my night stand lonely. I use this little tablet for everything!
Blossom, what MP3 player app do you use on this? Does google play have a sleep timer like Ipod Touch does? I really want to use one of these instead of an Ipod Touch soon.

Also I noticed it is Android 2.3 gingerbread? Isn't that older than the current one?

I'm in the same boat.

I want a ClipZip, a 32GB microSDHC memory card, and a 64GB flash drive. And maybe the Samsung Galaxy Player 5

Like silverraven above, I think my husband will shoot me

BestBuy BF sale is supposed to start tomorrow, Nov 22; would that be from 12:00 am? If so, I thinking of staying up tonight to buy at least the first things on my list because I'm afraid of them running out if I linger.

Your "I want" list was what was on mine. I keep taking off the flash drive and the GP5, then putting it back on.

My BB store shows that it opens midnight after our Thanksgiving Day (12AM Friday).

I wanted to stay up to go shop then, but my nieces are staying the night with me so the parents can go shopping. I'll have to wait until they pick them up before I can go out shopping.

Added you to the list. I'm not sure of Best Buy's start time yet. I plan on staying up the rest of the night for the sales.

Shop tonight. Online sales are starting to go live now. I expect many to start around midnight or shortly thereafter.

Same from what I can see on the site but the BF preview page says the ad is effective from Nov 22; I assumed that meant you can start buying online from that date - wrong assumption?

I'm not in the US so I have no choice but to shop online. My sister-in-law has to buy stuff at BB and she offered to pick up anything I want but I'd prefer to try online first.

The one that is built in works great! No sleep timer though. I also use Amazon MP3 app. Slacker Radio and Tune In Pro.

Yes Gingerbread is older but I prefer it to the newer Android. My Kindle Fire is 2.3 as well.

I'm definitely waiting up to check out the sales. I want to get what's on my list ticked off right away.

The SGP5 I've had in my Amazon cart from yesterday, along with the TPU skin Blossom mentioned. While I'm waiting up, I'll check out the specs again and reread everything mentioned about it here in this thread, and then make my decision.

We can, but we don't what time it'll go live. Nor do we know which items will be for sale.

Sears' online BF sale will start shortly -- 8pm CT.

I'm hoping the Nook ST ($40) will be available.

The Nook ST isn't listed on their website at all except a refurbished unit.
