These are the tablets to put on your Black Friday hit list
If you're thinking of snagging the latest and greatest tablet, we've devised a short list to make composing your battle plan a little easier. You might be under the impression that Amazon is just good at producing e-book readers, but the company's tablets are strong competitors as well. Following the Kindle Fire HD, and the Kindle Fire before that, the Amazon Fire HDX 8.9 has finally matured into a device that doesn't require you to accept an unreasonable number of compromises when compared to the rest of the tablets on the market. There's really only one true runner-up: Samsung's Galaxy Tab S, the Android-powered tablet offered by South Korea's electronics powerhouse. Running Android 4.4 "KitKat," the tablet, which won our Mashable Choice award earlier this year, is what you want if you're not a fan of the iOS app ecosystem, and want the most robust alternative universe of tablet apps. Deal Alert: Samsung has knocked $100 off the 10.5-inch 16GB version of the tablet for Black Friday, making it available for just $399.99. There are a number of tablets on the market that may suit your particular use, but if you're a complete tablet newbie, the iPad Air 2 is the easy choice to bring you or the one you're gifting onto the fast lane of tablet computing. Inside the tablet, which is even thinner than its predecessor at just 6.1 millimeters, is a new, more powerful A8X chip and a better Retina display.
