Many new models were announced over the back-to-school season and within the last month that are just coming onto the market. In addition, there are many excellent tablets that were released earlier this year whose prices have come way down and are great bargains. You can find some of the tablets in this guide with prices ranging from less than $1,000 to many thousands of dollars.
