UHD TVs
I think this black Friday would see emptying shelves of UHD TVs and flagship phones and gaming consoles more than anything on that list.

Even fewer
I don't think large screens will save tablets. Large screen tablets have even fewer use cases. So these will sell even less.

Re: Even fewer
Yeah that is true because I can do everything on my Note 5 that I can do with any tablet. Probably more. Phablets are the best investment. I think even tablets will fade out of the equation.

Re: UHD TVs
Flagship phones: check. Gaming consoles: check Computer peripherals: check. UHD TVs? not sure about them. They cost too much even for black Friday deals.

Better idea for Black Friday Gadgets!
You should link a portable personal projector to this. Can connect a smartphone or tablet and create a 100" screen anywhere! Who would have thought you could fit a PC with 100" screen in your jeans pocket!

Re: Even fewer
I think there is really no need for people upgrade their tablet on a regular basis like people do with smartphones.  I think adding accessories and support will be the best idea.  I am tempted for the two in one, or phablet or like Microsoft surface. I think those will be the ones that would really take off.  As you used it more, the components will brake and people will need to replace them more often.

Memory cards
Memory cards are undermarketed. They offer an awesome value for money. I had to buy one even for my HP laptop which had limited memory of 128GB. Kingston also offers good quality.

Re: Even fewer
@nasimson: Truly the case. Phablets aren't interesting anymore. It is hard enough to walk around with a tablet, even if its light, its cumbersome.

Re: Memory cards
@Nasimson: Memory cards are good. Ever since phones started offering 128 GB storage, I started backing up all crucial data on my phone. Can you believe I used to have a 128 gb hard drive around 8 years ago?

Re: Even fewer
@PedroGonsalez: Wasn't there Project Ara to make phones modular? I think tablets can only be saved if they give us customization options like Project Ara.
