Did you buy a tablet this weekend?

Author: Riley Alexander, MD, MBA

This weekend, stretching until "Cyber-Monday" is the most hyped shopping weekend of the year. Did you purchase a tablet. There were some good deals on many of the Android tablets out there and, very surprisingly, the iPad 2 was even on sale. You probably won't see that again until the iPad 3 is unveiled.

This also marked the first official weekend of the shopping season since the Kindle Fire and Nook Tablet have been in the wild. These low-cost tablets/deluxe e-readers have garnered a lot of attention and are without a doubt the two tablets likely to lead sales in the non-iOS category this season. Has anyone already gotten theirs? I actually purchased the Nook Tablet for myself last weekend and am planning on writing a follow-up post on my experience with it and why I chose it over Amazon's entry into the field.

Let us know if you did and why you got what you did.
