Black Friday price comparison: eReaders and tablets

I am not an expert in all the tablets and eReaders out there. We have a Kindle and an iPad. They’re two very different products. Before you head out this week to buy any electronic reader or tablet, make sure you read any product reviews before you make the final decision.

Here’s my opinion. If I was going to buy an eReader or tablet, I would spend a little more money on a known, brand-name product. There are several great brands now that make them, and you can still get a good price on many of them. If you want to see all the eReader and tablet deals, head over to our individual store ads to see various Black Friday offers.
