(Pocket-lint) - The Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale period is very much ongoing, and for those looking to get themselves a new tablet, whether it's for work or for play, then Black Friday is a good time to make your purchase. 

In previous years we've seen plenty of discounts on tablets, from Apple, Amazon and big players like Samsung, meaning there's a good chance you'll find a deal on something that you're looking for. 

Here's everything you need to know about getting the best tablet deal.

When is Black Friday 2021?

Black Friday 2021 falls on 26 November in 2021. It will be followed by Cyber Monday on 29 November. While these were once separate events, now they have very much merged into a discount season, often starting long before Black Friday itself.

Will the iPad be discounted for Black Friday? What else might be available?

There are often discounts on the Apple iPad for Black Friday. They aren't huge, but often there's the opportunity to buy an iPad for cheaper than at other times of the year - even a modest discount makes a difference to these highly sought after items. That might include the new iPad mini

One range of tablets that we know will get a heavy discount is the Amazon Fire tablets. Amazon cuts its prices substantially, often making Black Friday the best time to buy a Fire tablet. Indeed, avoid buying in early November when the prices are likely to be their highest and wait for the Black Friday discounts to start. 

Samsung also likes to discount so there's likely to be a full range of deals on Samsung Tabs, while other Android tablets often get unbeatable prices. Occasionally you might also see discounts on Surface devices too, especially after the launch of an updated model.
