HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Shoppers will be busy this Christmas season, not only buying clothes, toys and jewelry, but also the latest high-tech electronics.

Tablet computers, iPhones and gaming consoles are expected to sell well during the holidays, according to electronics retailers.

And at Hattiesburg local Best Buy store, TVs were a big-selling item on Black Friday.

"The $199 TV was definitely a go-after and then we had one that was for $79...a 24-inch TV, so those were super hot," said Allison Burch, general manager of Best Buy in Hattiesburg.

Burch said the updated version of the iPad is also expected to be a big seller this year.
