With so many seasonal sales, there's never been a better time to score one of the best tablet deals. But, with so many devices on offer, which tablet is best for you? And which deals are genuine, and which are duds? Here's our pick of the best tablet deals...
Apple's iPads are always a good bet. They offer high-quality displays, good sound and slick iOS software. They're not always the cheapest, though. On a tight budget? Amazon's Fire HD tablets could be for you. These nicely-priced slates offer decent screens and tons of apps.
Samsung's classy Android tablets are another good option for work and play. Top-of-the-range models, such as the Galaxy Tab S7+, can rival the iPad Pro. Heavy gamer or business user? Consider Microsoft's high-end Windows-powered tablets, which boast ultra-fast processors and sharp displays.
