Best Deals for Tablets in May 2019

Best Tablet Deals: Looking for a cheap tablet deal? Our team of experts is here to help.

It’s remarkable to think that the tablet has been with us for less than nine years. It was in April 2010 that Apple launched the first iPad, and a whole new type of portable computer was born.

Not everyone was convinced as to the tablet form factor’s merits back in those early days. Now, though, it’s perfectly clear what they have to offer. For example, surfing the web on a tablet proves to be a way more tactile experience than on a PC or laptop, yet also far less claustrophobic than on your smartphone. Many modern mobile games end up playing best on a slightly larger display, too.

Besides this, tablets are simply getting a lot more capable. For example, the latest iPad Pro models pack more processing power than the vast majority of laptops.

Of course, this feature is all about stand-out tablet bargains, and the biggest tablet deals tend to be had in the Android field. It’s long been possible to get an affordable tablet by straying away from Apple’s all-conquering tablet family, and most of the following deals follow suit.

Don’t forget the Amazon Fire family either. The only retail giant continues to quietly churn out stupidly cheap tablets, which are particularly well suited to consuming Amazon media content on the go.

Whatever your budget or use case, there’s a great tablet deal out there for you. We’ve rounded up a whole bunch of cheap tablets from the UK’s biggest online retailers.
