Best Tablet Deals: Follow our advice and snag yourself a top tablet deal.
It’s funny to remember now, but when the iPad first arrived on the scene in 2010, many derided it as a gimmick. It was felt that the tablet form factor was merely an oversized smartphone without the ability to make calls. Why buy such a thing when you have a laptop?
Eight years on, we know better. Tablets take couch web browsing to a whole new level and make movie watching on the go a lot more appealing. Meanwhile, apps and games are often at their best in this large-screen format.
In recent years, tablet hardware and software has evolved in tandem to the point where they’re becoming genuine productivity tools. They’re not exactly laptop replacements, but the edges are starting to blur.
While Apple’s iPad family continues to take all the plaudits with its new and super-capable Pro family, there’s a whole bustling ecosystem of Android tablets for all budgets. Elsewhere, Amazon continues to plug away with its own low cost Fire tablets.
All of these large-screened devices have their place. Whether you want to hit Netflix on a stopover, play games on a flight, or stream a sporting event while your main TV is being used, there’s a tablet for you regardless.
What’s more, you don’t need to pay over the odds to get what you want. We’ve searched the web for some of the best tablet deals available from major UK retailers such as Amazon, Currys, Argos and John Lewis.
