Here are the best 2014 Black Friday tablet deals that are online. New this year is that we won’t be covering deals that are in-store only since doorbuster deals are near impossible to get hold of anyway and tend to be sold out before you even reach the shelves. But we will cover the best Black Friday tablet deals that are available to buy online. If you are unfamiliar with some of the tablets on sale below you can use the Tablet Comparison Chart to find out more about them, or you can use the search box in the right column as well.
Note that some of these deals begin early, like on Thanksgiving in the US on Thursday, and some sales have already started and are under way. This page is updated continuously over the next couple of days, as new deals are added. Page last updated on 5:36 pm EST, November 30.
