Black Friday may be fast approaching (November 24) but the deals are already here, and while we've been keeping tabs on the best Black Friday tablet deals in the run-up to the main event, now we're starting to see some really noteworthy discounts.

Here, we've cherry-picked four of the first significant Black Friday deals across, iPads, Android tablets and Amazon's own Fire tablets in the US and two in the UK. While reductions on the latest and greatest slates may not have yet materialized, we've still found lower prices on flagship-class hardware – like Samsung's excellent Galaxy Tab S8, as well as already-affordable options like Amazon's Fire HD 10 Plus tablet, which is currently up for grabs for under $115 (down from $179).

It looks like UK deals aren't quite as abundant as US deals at this stage. But we've still featured a couple of significant reductions on Samsung Galaxy Tabs that might appeal for those after a high-end tablet that's slim and powerful.
