Even on Thanksgiving Day, many shoppers were using their phones and tablet computers to comparison shop online or simply shop, according to data just released by TheFind. The early store openings by many of the national retailers seem to have helped to bring shoppers in Thursday night as mobile search volumes on TheFind indicated.

Door Busters:
Topping the list of most searched for items on mobile phones and tablets was a 32 inch Samsung LCD screen which typically sells for as much as $349.99, and was being offered for $279.99, a price matched by several national retailers.

Another top scanned item was a Microsoft Xbox 4GB Kinect bundle, which Amazon was selling at a promotional price of $199.99, for which the retailer quickly sold through its stock of discounted units.

Apple iPad and iPod Touch were also highly searched for items with mobile devices. Amazon’s Kindle Fire did not fare as well in mobile searches, and didn’t crack the top 20 most searched for items by mobile shoppers according to TheFind. Though it is in the top 5 most searched for items by online electronics shoppers on TheFind.

Perhaps indicating a trend for the holidays, shoppers appeared to be in the market for accessories to go along with their smartphones and tablet computers, along with games to accompany new or existing gaming consoles.

“With a sluggish economy and the lack of a breakout holiday “must have” gifts, shoppers did take advantage of the early starts to Black Friday. Searches and scans from smart phones indicate that consumers went to stores Thursday evening and night but seem to be trying to keep their gifts below $50 thus far, with the exception of items that are priced too low not to buy, such as some of the door buster deals on new TVs and gaming consoles,” said Siva Kumar, CEO of TheFind.
