With Christmas drawing closer, and the two largest pre-Christmas sale periods just being over, one would think that tablet deals were far between in the run up to the holidays. But for this year one almost gets the impression that the opposite is the reality, now that the first December days have seen some of the best tablet sales of the season, though most of these sales only lasts for 24 hours these days.
Some tablet stores are simultaneously engaged in what they call 12 Days Of Deals, though the actual date varies, with Microsoft in USA and Canada both running their 12 Days Of Deals between Monday, December 8 and Friday, December 19, while Amazon on the other hand runs their 12 Days Of Deals between Thursday, December 11 and Monday, December 22.
This is a LIVE page that is updated throughout December to keep track of some of the best computer and electronics deals before Christmas.
