I just ordered a 32GB Playbook bundle @ $149 + 4% cashback from ebates.ca. It comes with a leather sleeve.

http://www.thesource.ca/estore/product. ... ct=2076102
or the $149 acer iconia 8gb tablet at walmart?

i dont think space will be an issue for the person im getting it for..

but the one at walmart should be able to handle more since its a quad core right?

thx

So excited for when the cheaper rumoured Nexus 7 comes out. I'm in interested to see what features it will have. Hopefully it is still fairly functional.

If it is decent, Apple ipad mini will be peeing its pants as will those cheap ereaders. Time to start clearing out stock before they are left on the shelf for good.

Thoughts on the Kobo arc promotion or rather the tablet itself? I need a good but reasonably price Android tablet, and though the Acer A110 looks great, I don't want to waste my time like I did trying to find stock at Wal-Marts for the Galaxy Tab 2 a few weeks ago.

At Walmart Kingston.

They pricematched the ASUS Visions tablet.

Tried at Staples, FS and BB... They would not.

Was quite disappointed with ncix - yesterday saw Samsung galaxy note 10.1 or $399 ($100 off) and was planning to pick it up today, but they raised the price to $449 this morning. I even have screenshot from yesterday...

Best I could find was at Visions for 448 before Christmas and then I did a price match at Best buy, the price now at Visions is 488
Yeah, I saw that but I held off, hoping for something during Boxing day. Found nothing. Picked one up at B&H Photo for $515 all in (about $455 before tax) which at least includes an external SD card reader. Tried to go to Futureshop today to get a Sandisk Ultra 32 GB MicroSD SDHC UH1 on sale but the place was packed and I didn't want to bother wasting my time in line.

Enjoying my new iPad mini. I get 2% cash towards travel with my aspire MC, so this makes the deal atleast warm.

You wouldn't be willing to pick one up and ship to GTA, would you? :-)

I missed out on the online part of this deal and it's now only available in store...what I don't get is that they say it's unlimited quantities but then they go ahead and limited the online part of it...

You're not the first person to ask me that lol. I dont understand why FS or BB wont price match this. It is in their policy and they should honor it.

For people in Toronto, Boss Sound in Woodbine Centre has the 16GB Sony Tablet S wi-fi for $239.99 while supplies last all this week (Originally $500).

Unique feature includes the universal remote control app for the built-in IR transmitter to operate your A/V gear and is PlayStation Certified. Fully DLNA compliant means it can stream from and to other DLNA equipment. For example, you can wirelessly 'throw' videos, music, and photos to a DLNA TV.

Unit has a 9.4" screen and runs Android ICS for now. And possibly Jellybean in Feb, 2013.

NOTE - this is one of those smaller , independent stores which might be more receptive to haggling as well. YMMV...
An earlier version of this article incorrectly described a behavior of crows exposed to crow corpses. Live crows only touch, attack and attempt intercourse with crow corpses, they do not scavenge them. (Actual NYT correction)

They claim not to be able to pm one day Boxing Day sales, only boxing week sales, and not on Boxing Day itself
