The holiday season is right around the corner and so is Black Friday, when the Christmas shopping season officially begins. But actually, if you've been following recent deals you may have noticed several major retailers will launch their Black Friday sales ahead of the date. Amazon, for example, will offer deals starting on November 19.
The best way to make the most of Black Friday savings is to be prepared. So we're kicking off the holidays with Dealnews' fifth annual Black Friday predictions, as compiled by their expert staff. If you're wondering how low big-screen HDTVs can go, how much you'll have to spend on a decent laptop, or whether you'll actually see a discount on an iPad, then you've come to the right place. We also have predictions for smartphones, eBook readers, game systems, and even travel.
