Office Depot's Black Friday ad leaked - by Office Depot

Black Friday ads continue to leak, and as we've wondered before, we continue to mull the question of how many of them are leaked by the retailer itself? At least one of them was leaked to us yesterday by the retailer, as details on the Office Depot Black Friday sale were sent to us by email.

We didn't receive a scan from the office supply giant, but we received details on specific items. Just as with Staples Black Friday ad, though, we noticed at least one price will need to be adjusted.

Among the highlights listed in the email:

    • 14” screen

[The Google Nexus 32GB is apparently the Nexus 7 device, but Google is now selling the device for $199.  Staples made the same mistake in their Black Friday ad.]
