Best Buy has the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 for $550 ($100 off), $450 ($200 off) for students

One of the last bastions of the dying Android tablet market, Samsung's excellent-but-overpriced Galaxy Tab S4, is currently on sale over at Best Buy. Though at first glance, the deal is just a respectable $100 savings, it's the student discount that really shines. Assuming you sign up, you can get an additional $100 off the Tab S4, meaning that you'll only need to fork over $449.99.

Huawei MediaPad M5 drops $40 on Amazon: 10.8" now $320, 8.4" $280

Google might be betting on Chrome OS for its tablet ambitions with the Pixel Slate, but there's still plenty of demand for solid Android tablets. As our own Rita El Khoury points out, native Android app performance is still better on Android slates, not to mention the fact that there are no 7-8" Chrome tablets yet and likely won't be for a while. Thankfully there are still some good options for Android tablets on the market — just a few months ago we gave Huawei's MediaPad M5 series the title of "the best all-around Android tablets you can buy." Now, in the week running up to Thanksgiving in the US, you can buy the MediaPad M5 10.8" and 8.4" for less than usual.

Samsung's Galaxy Tab S4 is a $650 Android tablet with laptop ambitions

Samsung announced the Galaxy Tab S4 this morning, a new 10.5" Android-powered tablet that seeks, first and foremost, to be seen as a laptop replacement (at a cost of another $150 for the keyboard dock). With the company's DeX UI first introduced via its desktop accessory for Galaxy smartphones last year, the Tab S4 can be used in a traditional, windowed operating system layout for productivity. This would seem to squarely aim the Tab S4 to do battle with the array of Chromebook tablets and detachables likely to hit the market in the next year.

Beside Samsung's Galaxy Tab S series, Huawei's MediaPads are the only other high-end Android tablets that are worth looking at, and this new iteration is better while still being priced reasonably.

Ready or not, Chrome OS tablets must replace Android tablets

Android tablets are not and were not ever very good. There. I said it.

From the very first devices that launched without Google's blessing, to the overhyped, underdelivering ones that did, all the way through Google's last-ditch effort to save them, Android tablets never hit their stride.

Sure, there were some bright spots, occasionally. Like the 2013 Nexus 7, which was beloved for its low cost and simplicity. It was the antithesis of the $500 iPad: a frugal hot hatchback to Apple's fully-loaded luxury sedan. But the Nexus 7, and most small, inexpensive tablets, were short-lived in their mainstream popularity as our phones started growing larger and larger.

Moto Tab review: Look elsewhere for your tablet needs

The Android tablet market is a proverbial scarce wasteland these days. It has been quite some time since we saw something from Samsung or Asus, two of the last major stalwart players in this space (excluding Amazon, obviously). Tablets are not what they were in years past, though I personally still find having one useful for certain situations, despite Android leaving much to be desired in this aspect.
