There is not a living soul in the US who is not excited about the upcoming Black Friday and Cyber Monday discounts. Every year people throng the retail outlets and online stores to buy at the lowest prices of the year. Manufacturers, retailers and sellers also give away generous discounts to get maximum benefit from the holiday sales season.
Traditionally, the Black Friday was dedicated towards promotion of sales in retail stores across US and in the following years with the emergence of eCommerce and a whole new shopping platform, Cyber Monday was introduced as an extension to the Black Friday to encourage people to buy and sell online.
2019 has been a technologically great year more so for the tablet industry. A lot of new tablet devices were launched and quite a few existing models were upgraded with better processors and storage to match up to present day demands. In addition, people are increasingly accepting present day tablets as their primary device owing to some brilliant engineering and innovation by companies like Apple, Microsoft, Samsung to name a few.
Sleek new detachable keyboards and graphic pens are adding to the relevance of the tablet market and we are slowly coming to a time where the powerful tablet PCs will mostly replace the old laptop market. The second striking thing about the tablet is the options that it gives to the users. You could choose to just use it as a touch screen device for lighter works, reading and replying to emails, watching videos and browsing the internet. But, if you need to do some extensive typing and need a physical keyboard, you can easily connect the detachable keyboard and it turns from a light tablet to a performance laptop!
Manufacturers have also been smart in identifying different categories and addressing their needs with their devices. This made the tablet a wide open market with devices starting from as low as less than $100 to all the way up to $1800 and more.
The best deals on tablets may not be the cheapest one. Many bloggers and statisticians help people to make the right purchase decisions. Statistically, most tablet users today use it for Netflix, YouTube and occasional word processing. Last year over 170 million tablets were sold worldwide. A major chunk of it came from the sale days in US.
