This is a definite case of ‘last but not least.’ As strictly an online marketplace, Amazon doesn’t have to print traditional ads and thus is less susceptible to failing victim of early ad leaks like we’ve seen from so many of its competitors. Early this morning Amazon finally shared with the world its plans for the Black Friday holiday shopping season.

Often considered the ‘holy grail’ for Black Friday shoppers, Amazon traditionally knocks-out the competition by offering deeply discounted Lightning deals in rapid succession. This year its upping the ante once again by promising new deals as often as every 10 minutes along with scheduled daily deals. Be sure to follow our social networks closely as that’s where we will be sharing the absolute best Lightning deals as they happen: TwitterRSS FeedFacebookGoogle+.

Walmart thought they were going to get nearly a week head-start on the competition, but Amazon is stepping up to-to-toe with the brick and mortar giant by kicking of its Black Friday deals just 2 days later on Sunday November 24th.

Time to turn you iPad into an entertainment powerhouse. Amazon is offering up to 48% off the Belkin Thunderstorm home theater speaker and case. The 30-pin version (iPad 2/3) is now $129.99, and the Thunderbolt model (iPad 4) is $149.99. The 48% discount figure is derived from a $250 retail price on the 30pin version, which is oddly more than the Thunderbolt model. Anyways, both models are significantly discounted and that’s all that matters. It features a full-range speaker system, protective casing, and various angles for optimal entertainment consumption. Rated 4.5 stars.

9to5Mac found it to be perfect for iPad users who are constantly gaming or watching videos:

I’ve tried many Bluetooth speakers from Logitech, Jawbone, NYNE, JBL and more, and I can honestly say none quite compare to Thunderstorm when it comes to a rich, immersive sound experience for watching video on an iPad. Its a unique experience with Thunderstorm, fine tuned specifically for the movie watching experience, and it’s definitely worth your attention if much of your time with an iPad is spent watching video.
