Seven-inch tablets

The Kindle Fire, Nexus 7 and iPad mini (L to R) combine a good price with quality.

Within the increasingly crowded tablet market, prices are falling on larger slates as makers clear the path for a new wave of models.

Companies have also been dropping costs on -- or in Apple's case creating -- smaller, seven-inch products to maintain a pricing edge. There's "opportunity in the low-end segment," says Tim Tang, an analyst with market research firm IDC.

Falling material and labor costs are also allowing makers to move their MSRPs.

Best deals:
Amazon Kindle Fire, $159
Down from $199 last year

Google Nexus 7, $199
Expected to drop $50 or so when new model debuts this year

Apple iPad mini, $329
vs. $499 for full-size iPad
