Best tablet deals January 2022: Discounts on Samsung Galaxy, Amazon Fire and Surface pro

For years, technology companies like Apple, Microsoft and Samsung told us that the future of computing is tablets instead of laptops.

These companies produce tablets with a wide range of screen sizes, features, and prices. Some can be purchased with detachable keyboards, others have handy kickstands, and many work with digital styluses, to unleash your inner artist.

Tablets are often lighter, thinner, and generally more portable and convenient than a laptop, with a wider price range and smartphone-based operating systems to make them easy to use for everyone.

When you think of tablets, it’s easy to jump straight into the Apple Store and grab an iPad. And while, yes, the iPad range is bigger than ever, with prices ranging from just £479 for the iPad mini (, all the way up to £2,149 for a 12.9-inch iPad pro fully loaded (, there are also many alternatives.

Companies like Lenovo, Samsung, and Microsoft all have a range of tablets to choose from. If you don’t own any Apple devices and aren’t part of the company’s ecosystem, then finding an alternative manufacturer can be a great idea – and can also save you money.
