Looking for good tablet deals

I know black friday isn't as good for tablets as it is for TVs and stuff, and I think after Christmas is when stuff like tablets and computers go on sale for less.

I'm looking for: Windows 8 pro tablets or android tablets, around 9.7"+
At least a Tegra 3, or RK3066 for china tablets.

hmm hmm $250, may be this ??? http://www.123inkcartridges.ca/catalog/search?q=TABLET
The res is a little low, 1024x600, which is normal for 7" tablets, also I'm pretty sure the processor is an RK2918, which kinda sucks.
There's lots of tablets for $250 currently that satisfy my criteria, but since I'm in no rush, I want to buy on sale

I bought and returned the Nexus 7. Too small. I want a 10". End of story.

Probably yes. However, it can be had for $99 if you wait for staples regular sales and stack on of those $15 coupons on.
Maybe wait for it to go on sale for a little more

I've been waiting for the rumoured $99 64GB playbook just for the hell of it but after playing with one a week ago, I'll even happily grab the 32GB model if it's up for $99 on boxing day.

Sign up for their emails or check the coupon thread under undoing discussions under hot deals forum.
Thinking about upgrading to the iPad air 2 from the air 1? You MIGHT want to reconsider. http://youtu.be/qjhC4S3vcD4

As much as I'd love to see some Playbook deals for Boxing Day, I don't realistically expect one given the fact that most major retailers (online & instore) have virtually no stock. Some of the smaller retailers still have stock (Visions, The Source and Walmart in my area at least). Are there even 64GB models still out there? I haven't seen one in quite some time.

Seems like RIM is still sending out stock. Last bunch of 32GB models were newly made weren't they? I'm assuming if RIM wants to get more Playbooks out there, there'll be another batch sent out to major retailers for boxing day.

I'm crossing my fingers for a $99 32GB Playbook personally.

:( good deal but I'm still too cheap to spend $100 on a 7" tablet. Pretty sure you can put jellybean on it right?
