Amazon refreshes Fire 7 lineup with more storage, hands-free Alexa, and some depressingly drab colors

The Fire 7 and Fire 7 Kids Edition are Amazon's most accessible tablets and they remain a decent, trusted option against other products at their respective price levels. Now, 2 years since they were last made over, the company is pushing out another refresh. While not much has changed on paper, some of the tweaks do bring more bang for the same number of bucks.

Amazon Fire HD 10 is $100 ($50 off) today only at Best Buy

Amazon's Fire tablets have been commoditized to the point where the average consumer can buy six-packs of them at a bulk discount... and that was 4 years ago. They get the job done and they're very cheap — both are good things — but they could be even cheaper. Best Buy is proving that point today with a one-day sale on the Fire HD 10.

Samsung's new 8-inch Galaxy Tab A includes S Pen support

Apple released an updated iPad Mini earlier this month, with one of the new features being Apple Pencil support. Samsung also has released an updated version of its 8-inch tablet, complete with S Pen support. Coincidence? I'll let you be the judge.

Gigantic tablets are rare in the Android world, but there have been a few — Samsung's 18.4-inch Galaxy View comes to mind. If you want a tablet the average size of a desktop computer monitor, Archos has you covered with its new 'Play Tab.'

Crap store plans crap tablet

Bloomberg is reporting that Walmart is "moving into iPad territory," in its plans to make a children's tablet. This clearly low-end device from a retailer known for its cheapness somehow constitutes — and I feel the need to quote Bloomberg again here — an "iPad rival."

Samsung's new tablet comes with a 10.5" OLED screen for just $400... if you want an Android tablet

Samsung officially announced its latest tablet today, the Galaxy Tab S5e. And I'm not sure what it's trying to do - or who it's competing with, other than Samsung's own products. In the tablet market, you have one player that essentially matters: Apple. Apple makes full-size iPads starting at $330 for the classically proportioned 9.7" iPad, all the way up to a staggering $1000 for the entry-level version of the 12.9" iPad Pro. Storage options and LTE can send them up into the stratosphere from there.

The Galaxy Tab S5e is priced at $400, and that makes it a bit of an odd duck when you're pitting against Apple's lineup.

Lenovo announces 5 new Android tablets, including the first running Go Edition

Android tablets have never been entirely convincing, and with the introduction of Chrome OS tablets, you'd be forgiven for thinking that Android slates were going to go away completely. That may well be the long-term plan but it didn't stop Samsung from trying their luck with the Galaxy Tab S4. Now, Lenovo is releasing a fleet of new large-screen Android devices.

Galaxy Tab S4 review: An overpriced tablet that is also a horrible laptop

If you've searched for an Android tablet in recent years, especially one in the premium segment, you've probably noticed that there are precious few options available. No Android manufacturer comes close to matching Apple's portfolio, and the one OEM that has dared to challenge the iPad's supremacy - Samsung - has generally done a pretty unremarkable job.

That hasn't stopped them from trying, though, and Samsung's back at it again with the Galaxy Tab S4, the latest and most expensive entry into the Tab lineup to date. Last year's Tab S3 started at $600, already a pretty eye-watering price for an Android slate, especially given the operating system's distinct lack of tablet-optimized apps (or even much in the way of a tablet interface).
