Whether you’re looking for an e-reader, an iPad or a tablet, Cyber Monday is an ideal time to stretch the buying power of your dollar. But some shoppers aren’t quite sure which of these highly portable devices will give them the functionality they really want. If you’re in that boat, you may want to prepare before you shop for Cyber Monday tablet deals by identifying your needs.
Choosing the Right Device on Cyber Monday
Developed to give readers a way to enjoy e-books without having to use their desktop or laptop, e-readers are designed to handle that single assignment — and little else. Tablets and iPad models on the other hand, while more expensive, are more versatile because you can use them to not only read e-books, but also to run applications, share photos, watch movies, listen to music and more. Either way, if you’re in the market for an e-reader like Amazon’s Kindle, or a tablet like Samsung’s Galaxy Tab, Google’s Pixel or Apple’s iPad, Cyber Monday specials will serve you well in the savings department.
Determining which operating system you prefer is a good way to begin your review of the best Cyber Monday iPad and tablet deals. If you already use an iPod, iPhone or iMac, you may prefer the familiarity of Apple’s iOS system, which will lead you to browsing iPad models. The good news is that whether your iPad of choice is the iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad mini, or the updated iPad, Cyber Monday deals will enable you to get a deep discount on a device that offers a proven combination of power, graphics and long battery life.
But Cyber Monday tablet deals aren’t limited to Apple products and iOS software. Microsoft’s Surface Pro, running on the Windows operating system, is popular for its pen and ink experience, its high performance power, and because it combines the versatility of a laptop with the portability of a tablet. Samsung’s Galaxy Tablets, using the Android operating system, offer a crystal-clear display and great cameras. Along with the operating system, you’ll want to consider other characteristics like processor speed, screen size, storage capacity and screen resolution (especially for use as an e-reader) to determine your ideal device.
And don’t forget. All these Cyber Monday tablet deals may leave room in your budget for some essential tablet accessories, too.
