If you haven't already bought a Nexus 7, you're missing out. It's easily the best Android tablet on the market, bar none. For today only, you can score a 16GB Nexus 7 with official case and free shipping for $250. While the price isn't any different than the 16GB version directly from the Play Store, at least you're getting some freebies out of the deal - roughly a $30(ish) value.
One notable thing about this deal is that you have the choice of either a gray or blue case, the latter of which hasn't even arrived in the Play Store yet. Read More

One of the most appealing aspects of owning a tablet from ASUS' Transformer line is the optional keyboard dock. It turns the tablet into an Android-powered netbook of sorts, making note taking, replying to emails, and other general productivity-based things much easier. The included battery also boosts usable time by up to four+ hours on most models, making the dock even more useful.
The main problem with the keyboard accessory, however, is the price tag; after spending $400+ on a new tablet, many users don't want to shell out the extra $150 to add the dock. Read More

Students have small budgets. We get that. Apparently, so does Samsung. So they took one of their most affordable tablets - the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 - and threw it in a box with the Tab keyboard and USB adapter, but kept the price tag the same as the tablet itself: $250.
Essentially, you're buying the tablet and getting the keyboard and USB adapter completely free, and that's a pretty solid deal. Read More
