Loaded: Happy Cyber Monday

2:18 /

The Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime tablet is available for preorder, Motorola's Droid 4 may launch in December, and today is Cyber Monday!

It's Monday, November 28th, 2011. I'm Mark (Laseya?) on Cnn.com, and it's time to get loaded. Black Friday, 2011, was reportedly a huge success. Com Score data says US consumers spent $860 on the post Thanksgiving shop extravaganza. Spending was 26% higher than last year, around 50 million consumers did their shopping over the web, which is a 35% increase over last year. Amazon came out on top, with Walmart, Best Buy, Target and Apple, following in that order. And as you know, the online deals are not done, my friends. No, Cyber Monday is happening right now, and those same big retailers have great deal offerings throughout the day. Amazon.com has their lightning deals, that you should keep tabs on. Best Buy still has great days, just don't expect to get you hands on the BlackBerry Playbook Tablets. They're pretty much sold out, and Verizon is offering 2 hot deals, the Motorola Zoom tablet for $199.00, knocking off $100, and the HTC Droid, incredible 2, is free, with it to your contract. And not too long after the launch of the Droid 3, Motorola is ready to move on. The droid 4 is rumored to launch on December 8th. It will have Droid Razor styling, and user Verizon's LTE network, for orange touchscreen, 1.2 gigahertz dual core processor, 1 gigabyte of RAM, and a front-facing cam, along with an 8 megapixel back facing cam. No word on if this is will run android Ice cream sandwich. The Asus E-pad, Transformer Prime, is available for pre-order today. It will run honeycomb has an 8 megapixel camera, and comes in 32 and 64 gigabytes. Oh, and it's the first tablet to sport a quad covered processor. The price tag right now shows instead of $500, with the launch date of December 8th. Best Buy has started to phase out its UK Branch, and now everything must go. The UK sale starts today, and we'll go until January 15th, so those in the UK that missed out on Black Friday or Cyber Monday, you should still be able to find some great deals through and and after the holidays. The Best Buy UK website, along with unredeemed gift cards, will end on January 15th as well. Those are your headlines for today. I'm Mark (Say it for Cena?).com, and you've just been loaded.
