It is uncertain why, but it seems that most companies have given up on tablets, leaving the market for only two giants nowadays: Apple and Amazon. However, many are left wondering which exactly offers the best deals during the holiday season.
For starters, the price speaks for itself. The impressive 12.9-inch iPad Pro comes in at $799 and is probably the most expensive choice for an exquisite treat. A smaller version of the iPad Pro, the 9.7-inch option is available for the starting price of $599. The iPad Mini 4 and the iPad Air take come in 3rd place, with prices starting at $399 each. Ultimately, the cheapest Apple has to offer is the iPad Mini 2 for the price of $269.
However, when talking about the Amazon Fire tablets, prices fall under $100, with only one exception. The most expensive choice is the Amazon Fire HD, featuring a starting price of $229.99. The Amazon Fire Kids Edition comes in second place with prices starting at $99.99. The Amazon Fire HD 8 comes in 3rd place with retail prices starting at $89.99. Ultimately, the cheapest option for an Amazon tablet enthusiast is the Amazon Fire 7, available for purchase for $49.99.
Nevertheless, there are other things to consider when thinking about purchasing one of these tablets. For example, if a customer already uses other Amazon products, the logical solution would be to steer towards the same company. However, most tech experts say that even if the Apple products are more expensive, the California-based company also offers a diversity of accessories, as opposed to its more modest competitor.
However, in terms of storage, a user cannot increase the memory capacity of an iPad. This may prove to be a deciding factor in the ultimate battle between the companies’ offerings. At the same time, users looking for a diversity of apps will be more pleased with the iOS platform which can also support a wide range of exquisite gadgets such as the IoT lightbulbs.
In the end, when talking about technical specs such as the pixel density and processor speeds, it all comes down to the more you pay, the better the hardware.
