Android tablets haven't really taken off, so much so that there really isn't that much of a tablet market these days. It's just an iPad market. Even the biggest Android fans can benefit from picking up one of Apple's tablets. While the quality of Apple's tablets is indisputable, the price has been one source of valid criticism which is exactly why you should take your chance to grab the entry-level iPad on sale. It has today fallen to a new all-time low price at Amazon at $229.99. That's almost $100 off — even lower than it was yesterday on Black Friday.

New low

Apple iPad 10.2-inch

The recently-released entry-level iPad just hit a new low, beating even its Black Friday price. Get the Retina display, the A10 Fusion chip, the 8MP back camera, the 1.2MP front camera, a 10-hour battery life, and more.

$249.00 $329.00 $80 off

The latest iPad has a 10.2-inch Retina display with a 2243 x 1668 pixel resolution. The screen size for the base iPad jumped up in size when it was updated this year without making the overall package any bigger. That means you can more easily multitask on a larger display without lugging a huge device around with you each day.

The device is equipped with Apple's A10 Fusion chip and Touch ID fingerprint sensor. Even though both of those technologies have been replaced in newer iPad Pro devices, they are still stellar technologies that are done so well by Apple and keeping them allows the most affordable iPad to exist. You'll also get an 8MP 1080p camera on the back and a 1.2MP 720p camera on the front. The iPad, of course, has exceptional battery life with up to 10 hours of mixed usage which is more than you'll get from recent Android tabs.

Check out the review of Apple's newest tablet from our pals over at iMore. They gave it 4.5 stars out of 5 and praised its larger display, Smart Keyboard support, and value for money. Unless you're willing to spend way more on a top-tier Android tablet, you're not going to get the level of experience this iPad will give you. We don't know how long this discount will last, but odds are it won't be here after this weekend so you really ought to pull the trigger now.
