Until a week ago, the tech world would have been best described as trending towards a full on Black Friday – but, with Amazon’s decision to cancel the next gathering of the tech fans, Black Friday 21 is now the real day.
Alongside this date, the tech companies that are still releasing new products, such as Apple, Google and Amazon have released their festive prices in advance – meaning holiday shoppers are able to nab the very best deals.
The old saying, ‘Tech money gets you nowhere’ is no longer a benefit – products you see mentioned here are listed at the best price available.
Want to jump on the front of the Black Friday bandwagon? Then here are the top tech deals for 2017 that you need to know about…
Black Friday Deals: Amazon Kindle E-Reader
Best Kindle Bundle: Kindle Paperwhite with Special Offers, priced at £79 ($89.99)
But seriously, cheap prices are not to be considered a bonus; they’re crucial to making gadgets affordable and worth buying.
If you’re in the market for a new ebook reader, this bundle featuring the £79 Amazon Kindle Paperwhite model, would give you a cracking bargain.
Oh, and did we mention it has a stunning new design that features a redesigned body that comes in eight different colours?
Here’s what we wrote about this Kindle bundle earlier this year:
The Amazon Paperwhite model is equipped with a display with 4.7 inches of 1440×1040 resolution and 323 pixels per inch, a 200,000-word adjustable battery life, Dolby Digital Plus audio performance and an improved font rendering engine.
During the Amazon Smart Plug Prime event, we didn’t think Amazon took the right approach with this product. Its built-in app means users can do everything they need from their iPhone or Android device – but this is a product that looks like it belongs in the market of smart home hub, not a smart plug.
Also, the device’s voice remote seems like something that would have been nicely integrated into an intelligent system, not a super gimmicky product.
Black Friday Deals: Sony SNE-A315SP AW Noise Cancelling Wireless Headphones
Best Sony SNE-A315SP BLACK Noise Cancelling Wireless Headphones bundle deal: £89 ($119.99)
Black Friday Deals: Apple AirPods + $50 off sale price, £159 ($159.99)
The Apple AirPods promise quality and ease of use. You get all the powers of an in-ear speaker as a pair of wireless headphones with the very best sound and equalisation technology on the market. They have a wireless charging case – which delivers a 20-hour battery charge – but there is no pass-through audio, for charging headphones only.
Their earbuds are water resistant, so you can splash them around in the shower or the pool. We got these AirPods for review earlier this year and they’re pretty good.
Apple’s decision to bring the wireless charging case is interesting, and as we’ve known, it has been a major selling point since the launch of the headphones.
These headphones are available in two colours – space gray and coral – that provide similar looks to the Apple AirPods case with white-coloured cables and metallic tips.
Black Friday Deals: Sony Connect Sound Bar with Sound Sticks
Best Sony Connect Sound Bar sound bars: The UK price is £279 ($299)
Exclusive offer: The Sony HXC7002 ($299) Soundbar is £90 ($109.99)

This is one of the most popular Apple AirPods deals we’ve seen yet. The Apple AirPods offer great audio quality with interchangeable Apple-branded audio cables.
This sound bar comes with a Bluetooth speaker station, as well as Sony connect to Wireless Sticks – these add noise-cancelling for those wanting more than just an audio experience.
Currently £295 on Sony’s own site for the UK price of £299, you’ll also get a £20 discount – meaning you’ll get the Sony Connect Sound Bar sound bar for £229 – this is a great deal.
