When it comes to tablets, Apple arguably dominates the market. And the company looks set to maintain that position with the arrival of its 10.2-inch iPad. The new version of the company's most popular model, which is half an inch taller and boasts a new Smart Connector (for compatibility with the Smart Keyboard), is now available online and in selected stores. 

When it comes to product updates, this all looks fairly standard for Apple, until you get to the price, that is. It's rare to see Apple products at a cost one might refer to as affordable (which is why we're already keeping an eye out for the best Black Friday iPad deals). But despite the newly updated, significantly bigger device, Apple has maintained the model's entry-level pricing.
