Best tablet Black Friday deals: Apple iPad, Amazon Fire, and more

There are plenty of deals to be found in this year's Black Friday sales, even if tablets are no longer the must-have holiday gifts they were a few years ago.

It wasn't so long ago that everyone put a tablet on their holiday gift list, with Black Friday ads giving ample cover space to the latest iPad. Thanks to bigger smart phones and 2-in-1 laptops being able to handle a lot of the tasks we once used tablets for, the market continues its decline. Nonetheless, over 36 million tablets were sold last quarter, with the iPad Pro and Microsoft Surface bringing more productivity capabilities to pricier devices, not to mention Amazon dominating the low end of the market.
