Even if two of the largest discounted shopping days are behind us, there will still tablet deals to be ahead before the holidays, and coming up tomorrow is a pre-Christmas sale on the Toshiba Encore Mini (WT7).
This 7-inch Windows 8.1 tablet was the first 7-inch consumer tablet to be launched with Windows 8.1 from a reputable tablet brand, and the first dirt cheap Windows 8.1 tablet too. It was launched for $119 in September.
Since then it has been cut to $99, to correspond with the price of it’s first rival, the HP Stream 7, which was launched only six weeks ago, also for $99.
But in one of first December sales that starts tomorrow (Monday December 8), the Toshiba Encore Mini (WT7) will at 8 AM (ET) be cut from the regular price of $99 to just $79, and included in the price is even a 16GB microSD card for free. The deal will go live at 8 AM:
To recap the main specs, the Encore Mini is a 7-inch Windows 8.1 tablet, with 1024 x 600 resolution with a 16:9 aspect ratio, a quad-core 1.33 GHz Intel Atom Z3735G processor, 1GB DDR3L RAM, 16GB of storage + a free 16GB microSD card (the tablet supports microSD cards up to 128GB).
And it has a 0.3MP front camera, and a 2.0MP rear camera, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and a 1-year subscription to Office 365 Personal.
There will also be a Kindle Fire HDX 7 4G LTE sale on Monday, with the Full HD cellular tablet cut by as much as 53%!
