Now this offer will only be good on Friday, April 29 and Saturday, April 30. Best Buy went ahead and extended the “free phone Friday” period this year to Saturday, which will give more customers the opportunity to take advantage of this awesome deal.
Last year, Best Buy offered the iPhone for free during free phone Friday. This year customers will not be so lucky, but if you are looking for the white iPhone, Best Buy says that they will have it stocked in stores as well as available online. However, they have not said how many will be stocked in stores, so if you want one, you should get there soon.
Scott Moore, vice president of Marketing for Best Buy Mobile, released a statement saying, "We've had tremendous success with the 'Free Phone Friday' campaigns we ran last October and December, and we've been waiting for the opportunity to do it again with a great lineup of in-demand phones. We've worked hard to make it as easy as possible for people to find the smart phone that's right for them with the most smart phones under one roof, exclusives and expert advice, and this is just one more reason to visit Best Buy Mobile."
Best Buy did make sure to mention that the free phone requires a two-year contract or activation, and the deal will not be available with any other offer.
Best Buy also said that they would be the only mobile retailer that will stock the Nexus S 4G, which is the latest smartphone from Google. A spokeswoman for Best Buy also claimed that they will be the only retail store that will allow customers to try out the phone in person before purchasing it in the store or online.
Other Best Buy news includes the announcement that the company is now taking preorders for the HTC Flyer tablet. The 7-inch mobile device will only be available through Best Buy and will be sold for $499. It will feature a customized version of Android Gingerbread (with a Honeycomb upgrade that will be made available at a later date), 1.5-GHz single-core Qualcomm processor, 1,024 x 600 multi-touch display, optional digital pen, 5 megapixel rear-facing camera, 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera, 16GB of memory, a microSD card slot and support for Adobe Flash 10.1.
