Tesco is selling the first-gen iPad mini for £149, but it’s arguably worth paying a little extra to get the super-specced iPad mini 2, currently selling for £209 – in silver and with 16GB storage – at Currys.
The Nokia Lumia 1020 is a bit of a mid-range beast, and Big Blue O2 is currently selling it – in black or yellow, and with 32GB storage – for £169.99.
Marking a super-sexy saving of £200, John Lewis is selling the Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet for £199.95 with a two-year guarantee.
For new customers, the Nokia Lumia 530 is currently £29.95 at Carphone Warehouse with an obligatory £10 top-up. Not too shabby at all. Even less shabby, if you’re eligible for a Carphone Warehouse PAYG upgrade (terms here), you can grab the Nokia Lumia 530 for just £14.95 – no top-up required.
We’ve covered the Best Black Friday tablet deal; here we turn our attention to the Best Black Friday mobile deal, namely the LG G2, currently going for £150 on Vodafone PAYG. Yep, that's the G2 as opposed to the G2 mini. Seriously.
For our money, the best Black Friday tablet deal is the LG G Pad 8.0, down from £149.95 to £99.95 at John Lewis with a two-year guarantee.
Black Friday has been an increasingly noticeable thing over the past few years, but this year the UK has cranked it to 11. And a half.
As the clock struck midnight, chaos descended, with websites clogged and ground-based shoppers participating in an impromptu Royal Rumble in a bid to grab their share of pre-Christmas bargains.
Black Friday: Anker 2nd gen Astro E5 16,000mAh external battery pack, £23.99 delivered with code @ Amazon
This Anker 2nd gen Astro E5 16,000mAh external battery pack was already down from £89.99 to £29.99. As if that wasn’t outrageous enough, you can chop off a further £6 with code BFDEALS1. That’s £23.99. Crazy.
The Asus Memo Pad 7 was selling for £119.99 at Currys not so long ago, but it’s currently £79 as part of the retailer’s Black Tag (Black Friday) promotion. Available in black, blue, red and white.
Tesco Direct has kindly shaved £100 off the price of the Apple iPad mini, in Space Grey, with 16GB storage, bringing it down to a slightly silly (in the best possible way) £149.
Black Friday madness is everywhere at the moment - not that we're complaining! Hit the blue words - yeah, these ones - for all the best Black Friday mobile deals in one handy feature, including SIM free mobiles, tablets, accessories and apps.
Here we're looking at Google Play, where you'll find up to 89% off 52 various Android apps, covering everything from education to games. Without further ado, let's rock.
Of all the iPhones over the years, the plastic-rockin’ iPhone 5c is the favourite of our Jan – that’s including the spanking new iPhone 6.
Alas, there’s bad news this week for our resident German/Irish maniac, as a couple of sources suggest iPhone 5c production will stop after less than two years in the wild.
As part of Amazon’s Black Friday Lightning Deals thingamajig, you can currently – until 6pm or stock runs out – grab the Pebble smartwatch for £74.99. That’s 25% off.
On the lookout for a gargantuan tablet? Look no further than the HP Slate 21 tablet PC, with a diagonal measurement more than twice that of the iPad. Using code BLACK6 (Black Friday strikes again!), you can bring the price down from £219 to £179.
Occasionally, the best way to grab a new phone – if you have the bucks lying around – is to buy the thing outright (‘SIM free’) and grab a tariff that simply gives you a SIM card and a monthly allowance (‘SIM only’). Or maybe your contract is up and you’re looking for the most cost effective way to keep your current phone in action before upgrading.
In either case, we’re looking at seven of the best UK SIM only deals at present, essentially one for each of the Big Four (Three, O2, Vodafone, EE), plus three MVNOs (mobile virtual network operators). Ready? Go!
The BlackBerry Passport is easily one of our favourite phones of the year, shoving top-of-the-range specs in an unashamedly weird body with a square display and three-row physical keyboard.
It remains to be seen if consumers will pay much attention, but BlackBerry is doing its damnedest to tout its latest and greatest, with an iPhone "Trade Up" program offering up to $600. Er, in North America, at least.
This Anker 40W 5-port USB charger was already down from £49.99 to £19.99, but using code BFDEALS1 (Black Friday, yeah!) you can make it more affordable still, at £15.99. Not too shabby at all.
Samsung has confirmed it’ll cut back on the number of individual Galaxy smartphone models next year, which means we’ll probably see less Galaxy Core Prime-esque dead weight.
Similarly, Sony says it’s renewing its smarphone focus, with profit becoming the top priority. I’m no CEO/CFO, but shouldn’t profit be the name of the game anyway, in this crazy cutthroat capitalist culture?
There’s something significantly more appealing about reading on a Kindle than a full-blown tablet (no offence, iPad), and here Argos is selling the New Amazon Kindle Paperwhite for £89 – that’s £20 off.
