Darn. I absolutely love the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 I got from Costco. But I called today, and there wasn't one in any store within 50 miles (and there are a lot!) So I guess my dear husband won't get one (that is okay, he is getting an ipod). He wants a Surface Pro, but after playing with this Tab, I think I will just get another ultrabook.
Did you try Sam's Club?

A Lightning Deal for a "Versatile and powerful Android tablet" will start in less than two hours at 7:59pm PT. No clue what it is. Could be good or could be junk.

It was a La Pan I TC 970 9.7" tablet. Has anyone heard of it? At $119 I would have passed if it hadn't sold out within 15 seconds. Really? They still show it is in stock for $180, but there is even a newer model!

15 seconds my arse, it was gone before I could get the deal to load. But since it wasn't a nexus 7 I'm not bitter.

That tablet is ancient. The OS is Android 2.2 (Froyo). The display is 132 ppi, which is worse than the 1st gen Kindle Fire (169 ppi). And the RAM is only 512MB.

The specs for the processor are contradictory. They claim Arm Cortex-A8 and OMAP 4. Which is it? The A8 is single core and would be an OMAP 3. Whereas the OMAP 4 uses a dual core A9.

Anyway, I wasn't impressed one bit by this tablet. This is the kind of tablet one buys in a drugstore.

Yeah; I have a month before the rain check expires. Not sure if I'll need both or not. In the meantime, my Nexus 7 is scheduled for delivery on Tuesday.

Thanks for the heads up.

Hmmm... "our most affordable tablet" sounds like the $159 Kindle Fire 2. Nearly two weeks ago, it was a Lightning Deal for $129. Are they going lower than that?

It looks like it they did say the lowest it will be this season.

I put it in my cart. if it's low enough. It will be perfect for my Nephew and his family as a Christmas gift.

$128

edit: after thinking it over, they could price at $129 and it would be at the lowest price of the year.

Today only, Kindle Fire is available for only $129 ($30 off)


Before placing your order, be sure to look at the Add Kindle Accessories box for a $10 discount on the PowerFast Charger. If you order it with the Kindle, you'll get the discount. The other items listed don't require a Kindle purchase for that pricing.

Also, don't forget to get the AmazonLocal Offer for a 30% discount on selected accessories.
