There was a scarcity of tablet deals this Black Friday, but today we found a handful of Editors' Choice offers that are worthy of your consideration. Check out the deals below, and make sure to bookmark this page, as we'll be updating it throughout the day with the latest tablet deals.
- Google Nexus 7 32GB 7" Android Tablet
Store: Office Depot
$214.99 via coupon code "182715056" with free shippingEXPIRED
Lowest By: $15
Expires: November 29 at 2:54 am ET
Is It Worth It?: Although it's a possible price mistake, Office Depot offers a new all-time low price on the 32GB Google Nexus 7, besting an earlier deal by $15. The well-reviewed 12-oz. tablet features a 7" 1280x800 touchscreen display, Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, 32GB memory, 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera, and Google Android 4.1 OS (Jelly Bean).
- Barnes & Noble NOOK HD Android Tablet Preorders
Price: From $160 via coupon code "CYBER40" with free shipping
Lowest By: $27
Expires: November 26
Is It Worth It?: Not only are these slates each a price low by at least $27, but this deal is notable because we didn't think we'd see any discounts on the latest Barnes & Noble tablet. But after the above coupon code, prices start at $160 for the 8GB model (although it first requires $1 padding to be eligible for the discount). The NOOK HD may fly under the radar, with both the Google Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire HD taking the 7" tablet spotlight, but it has been praised for its 1440x900 screen resolution and feel. It additionally features a Texas Instruments OMAP 1.3GHz processor, 1GB RAM, microSD card slot, built-in speakers, and Android 4.0 OS (Ice Cream Sandwich).
- Kindle Fire 7" Android Tablet with Special Offers
Price: $129 via coupon code "FIREDEAL" with free shipping
Lowest By: $31
Expires: November 26
Is It Worth It?: While this isn't the higher-end HD model, the first-generation Kindle Fire actually still got an upgrade a few months ago; it's now faster and features a better battery, while still being very budget-friendly. In fact, this today only deal is tied with our mention from two weeks ago as the best price we've seen for a new unit of this model. It runs a heavily-modified version of Google's Android OS and sports a dual core processor, 8GB internal storage, and 7" 1024x600 IPS display.
Alternatively, CowBoom offers a used version of this tablet for $89.99 plus $5 shipping. That's tied with a deal from last month as the lowest price ever for the Kindle Fire. Keep in mind however that no warranty information is provided.
- Acer Iconia A200-10G16U 10.1" 16GB Google Android Tablet
Store: Best Buy
$229.99 with free shippingEXPIRED
Lowest By: $70
Is It Worth It?: While the Acer Iconia A200 isn't necessarily a critic's darling within the world of tablets, this deal proves that it can offer an extremely budget-friendly option for consumers. At $229.99, this is one of the cheapest 10.1" Android tablets with 16GB storage we've seen. The tablet has dropped $20 since yesterday's mention, and it's a current price low by $70. The 1.5-lb. A200 features an NVIDIA Tegra 2 1GHz dual-core processor, 10.1" 1280x800 touchscreen LCD, 1GB RAM, 16GB flash storage, microSD card slot, 2-megapixel front facing camera, and Google Android 4.0 OS (Ice Cream Sandwich).
