Sometimes, the cost of buying a tablet spirals. You spend hours trawling the Internet for the lowest priced slab you can find, but on ordering it you realise you have to fork out for postage. Not only that, you’re cajoled into paying an arm and a leg for an entire pack of screen protectors, you’re forced to auction off your kidney to afford the tablet’s bespoke case and find yourself packing your children off to medical experiments for the sake of getting that Bluetooth keyboard. So it’s quite a relief that eBay is now offering the 16GB Lenovo IdeaTab tablet, running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean with a Quad Core 1.2GHz processor for just £219 with a case, screen protector, Bluetooth keyboard and postage all included in the price. Good news, kids - you can come home!
Meanwhile, over at Amazon, the Sony Smart wired in ear headset has had 61 per cent knocked off its £69.99 RRP, making it yours for a cool £27.40. With a durable, tangle-free flat cable, Sony claim to have banished the problem of knotted up earphones and served up the solution with a side of superior sound. The device also comes with a Smartkey control, a nifty feature that allows you to make notes on the go by recording you speaking aloud like a Dictaphone. Compatible with phones, music devices, computers or game consoles, it’s one of the more versatile headsets we've seen this year.
Last but not least, Carphone Warehouse is offering free experience days worth £50 and £100 with the purchase of any pay-as-you-go or pay monthly contract respectively. It means that if you’re buying a smartphone for a loved one’s Christmas present, you have another nice gift thrown in for someone else (or yourself) on the side. Alternatively, you can search the Carphone Warehouse site for the cheapest smartphone they have (the lowest we found was the Nokia Asha 201 for £29.95) and buy that to basically bag yourself a spare phone and a fun day out for free.
We strongly advise that you read our standard daily deals disclaimer should you have a purchase intent. These deals are not sponsored but are instead chosen solely because they represent, in our humble opinion, a cracking bargain.
