Nine out of 10 people plan on giving consumer electronics as gifts this year, with laptops and tablets leading the way for adults. With that in mind, My Favourite Voucher Codes has generated a top 10 list of the best tablets for this Christmas.
According to the 20th annual CE Holiday Purchase Patterns Study, the majority of people will be looking to buy their loved ones a tablet or laptop this Christmas.
Choosing a tablet out of the wide range that’s available can seem like a daunting task. Even if you aren’t new to the world of electronics, it can still be difficult selecting the right tablet as a gift.
However, My Favourite Voucher Codes has put together a top 10 list to give shoppers a helping hand.
1. Microsoft Surface Pro 2
Featuring Windows 8.1, the Microsoft Surface Pro 2 is half laptop and half tablet. It comes with a 10.6 inch screen and gives you the ability to watch HD movies. This tablet is available from the online Microsoft store, but shoppers might be able to save by with 5% off thanks to PC world voucher codes.
2. Samsung Galaxy 3 7.0
The Samsung Galaxy is the iPad’s closest rival. It has a 7 inch screen and it comes in either an 8GB or 16GB option. It’s not the most advanced tablet available, but it’s definitely one of the best budget buys. You can find this tablet in many high street stores, including Comet, for around £159.
3. Samsung Galaxy Note 8
Another Samsung offering is the Note. Featuring an 8 inch screen, this version of the Note doesn’t require the stylus pen. It’s another good budget option and you can buy it at a great price from John Lewis – again it’s worth shoppers seeing if they could save with John Lewis voucher codes.
4. ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity
The Asus Transformer Pad Infinity has the huge advantage of coming kitted out with a keyboard. It has a stylish design and is one of the more powerful tablets on offer. You can find it for around £700 on Amazon.
5. Blackberry Playbook 2
The Blackberry Playbook 2 uses the BB10 software that took the company over a year to create. It’s much improved on its predecessor and at just £160, it’s hard to grumble.
6. Tesco Hudl
This solidly built tablet is one of the best budget buys on offer and the first to be manufactured by a supermarket. Found only at Tesco, you can expect an Android operating system and a good 7 inch display for £119.
7. Google Nexus 10
Featuring an impressive 10.1 inch display, the Google Nexus 10 has an extremely high resolution. This makes it fantastic for those looking to play videos and movies on it. You can find this tablet on the Google Play Store.
8. iPad 4
Of course, no tablet countdown would be complete with the iPad. The fourth edition of this tablet features retina display and comes with thousands of apps. Shoppers can buy it online and with these Apple Store voucher codes, they’ll save on accessories.
9. iPad Mini
The iPad Mini has been one of the most exciting developments to come from this popular company. It’s ideal for kids as well as adults. It features a sleek operation and again has thousands of apps to choose from. You can find it almost everywhere, including many supermarkets and high street stores.
10. Sony Xperia Tablet Z
The Sony Xperia tablet has been described as sleek and powerful. It’s an impressive device that would make a great Christmas gift. The stylish design and impressive graphics make it one of the leaders on the market. Available for £399, you can get it with 6 months interest free at Very.
