$50 tablets are now a thing
June 8, 2014 | 5:42 am

DigiLand-DL-71These are the days of miracle and wonder… A few months ago, I wrote that the $100 laptop was now the $100 tablet. It turns out that now, it’s the $50 tablet. First they were on sale for that at Office Depot. Since, I’ve seen them around the same price in Fry’s. Now Nate reports on The Digital Reader that Best Buy has a $50 dual-core Android 4.4 tablet, and I just got a Wal-Mart sales circular email advertising Ematic 7” tablets for $55 and $60. It also features a number of other tablets in the $70 to $100...

Office Max store closings offer bargain tablet, e-reader opportunities
December 22, 2013 | 7:35 am

CAM00515[Bumped due to factual correction.] Looking for a good tablet bargain? Check out your local Office Max or Office Depot store—it’s possible you might find one that’s going out of business. Offices Max and Depot merged this year, and my local Office Max store is closing. (Probably because it’s right down the street from an Office Depot.) An employee at the store told me this closure was due to the merger. I have since been contacted by a representative of Office Depot who said that no closures have been announced and any closures are “part of the...

Office Depot offers $50 Android tablet in its retail stores
December 15, 2013 | 4:24 pm

CAM00507We live in a world where you can walk into an Office Depot and buy an Android tablet for $50. Not a very good Android tablet, it should be noted: 28 reviews on the Office Depot site give it an aggregate score of 2.5 out of 5 stars. But for fifty bucks (normally $80, but it’s on holiday sale) it doesn’t have to be very good. It just has to work at all. And that’s a $50 tablet in a brick and mortar retail store. Not ordered over the Internet from China or who-knows-where. The Apex AP-7S118’s specs...

November 22, 2012 | 1:00 pm

Amazon Kindle Fire tablet, Black FridayJon Cog of the Me and My Kindle blog gave us a very convenient heads-up yesterday about Amazon's Black Friday plans for the Kindle Fire. As he reports on his site: Amazon’s retail-store partners, like Best Buy, OfficeMax, Staples, or Office Depot, [are] reportedly not allowed to lower the actual price of the [Kindle Fire], but they’re doing the next best thing. If you purchase a Kindle Fire tablet, they’ll just give you some money back in the form of a gift card! Check out Jon's post for details on the sales being offered by the four brick-and-mortar retailers mentioned above. Of course, it's worth bearing...

Kindle, Nook find new homes in Office Depot, Radio Shack
September 21, 2011 | 10:15 pm

E-book readers are infiltrating more big-box stores. Mediabistro’s eBookNewser reports that Office Depot is going to be carrying the Kindle, while Radio Shack is going to start selling the Nook. Not so very long ago, it was believed that the lack of retail outlets carrying these e-readers would be a handicap to their adoption. But the Kindle has since found homes in several retail chains, and the Nook has likewise expanded beyond the brick-and-mortar walls of Barnes & Noble’s stores. Now anybody who is interested can run across one or both of the major brands without even meaning...
