Black Friday 2010 is the first Black Friday we will see Tablet deals.
Let's just ignore the fact that Tablet Computers have already been on the market for years, Microsoft has been pushing them forever. They just haven't been successful. Everything changed this year in Spring when Apple launched the iPad. Black Friday 2010 is therefore the first Black Friday that will see Tablet deals.

The iPad defined the Tablet market and this Black Friday season Android and maybe Windows powered Tablets will try to sell against the iPad. There will be an onslaught of Android powered Tablets of varying quality. On the high-end you will find the Samsung Galaxy Tab, Toshiba Folio and maybe the Motion.Ink Adam. In the mid-range you will find Tablets like the eLocity A7 and the Archos Android Tablets. On the low-end there will be a ton of $100 Android Tablets with questionable performance.
The Apple iPad will finally be available at other retailers starting in October. This means we will see iPad deals during the Black Friday 2010 season. The iPad Black Friday deals will either be gift card bundles, single digit discounts or accessory bundles. Do not expect to see major price-cuts on the iPad.
Tablets sales are predicted to be pretty sizable this Holiday shopping season. Best Buy said to the WSJ that iPad sales alone have already cannibalized their laptop sales by 50%. This is pretty dramatic. It looks like 1 in 2 consumers look for a device to easily consume digital media and use the internet. They do not need a keyboard and the flexibility a laptop offers - less is more! Update: Well, Best Buy corrected the report and now says that there has not yet been any real impact on Notebook sales from Tablets.
