We're now onto Cyber Monday's deals, as Black Friday sales have died down in favour of its cousin's online-focused day. 

While the boom in tablet sales has cooled somewhat this year, there are still plenty of reasons for getting to grips with the technology if you're not yet acquainted, so check our full buying guide if you've worn out your current model.

Tablets can be used for everything from remotely displaying ultrasound results to calibrating route maps for pilots in the cockpit. Of course, we're more likely to use them entertain the children with an episode of Peppa Pig or scroll through the news in front of the telly.

There are stacks of tablet deals available on Currys PC World, Argos and Amazon. Here is our selection of the best offers on tablets on Cyber Monday.

Fire 10-inch tablet with Alexa

Was £149.99, now £109.99 from Amazon

Amazon

The Amazon Fire 10 tablet is the company's most powerful tablet, with a full HD 10.1-inch display, 2 GB of RAM and a solid 10 hours of battery life. The model also now comes with Alexa, meaning you can use just your voice to get your tablet to read the news or open apps for you.

The Fire tablet is great for binge-watching Netflix or Amazon Video on a larger, brighter, punchier screen than Amazon's cheaper models, and with £40 off it is a great Cyber Monday bargain.

It's currently out of stock, but stock is being replenished in December, and if you purchase this item before then you'll be sure to get one.
