Walmart confirms day of deals
Yesterday's leak of Walmart offering several sales on consumer electronics products has been confirmed today by the big-box electronics retailer. The one-day deals are slated to start on Saturday, November 7th at 8AM. The leaked image matches Walmart's official products down to the prices and includes an Xbox 360 Arcade gaming console coming with a $100 gift card for $199. The headline offering, according to Walmart, is a 46-inch plasma HDTV with 1080p resolution and three HDMI ports for $788.
Otherwise, there is the $298, 15.6-inch HP notebook with a 250GB hard drive and an Intel Celeron processor. A Sony Blu-ray disc player is being offered for $148, while those with existing DVD collections can opt for the $29 Magnavox DVD player that sports 1080p upscaling. Finally, there is a 42-inch Sharp LCD for $498, and presumably, larger models of the TV are also offered, though not reflected in this ad. They did appear on the leak and include a 46-inch version for $698 and a 52-inch model for $898.
