Available in China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan and Thailand, Red Friday will take place about three weeks before the upcoming Lunar New Year on January 31. While Apple has not specified the type of deals taking place this Friday, it can be inferred from previous Black Friday events that there will be lucrative price discounts on mobile devices.
UPDATE: According to iPhonehacks.com, Apple fans in Singapore can look forward to the following price cuts:
S$70 (US$55.09) discount off iPhones
S$50 (US$39.35) discount off iPad Air
S$40 (US$31.48)discount off Retina iPad mini
S$30 (US$23.61) discount off non-Retina iPad mini
S$40.01 (US$31.49) discount off iPad 2
S$120 (US$94.45) discount on MacBook Air, MacBook Pros and iMac
S$40 (US$31.48) 5th generation iPod touch
S$14 (US$11.01) discount on the iPod nano
Although Black Friday was to reference the point retailers start to get accounts in the black or having a positive net income, Apple’s Red Friday might not be something to indicate it’s in the red. After all, in the Chinese culture, the colour red signifies prosperity and good luck.
