Amazon has launched a sale on their all-new Fire 8 HD tablet and their existing Fire 7.
The Fire 8 HD gained a refresh in early September, gaining a microSD memory slot, allowing users to save apps to external memory cards. The HD display comes in at 1280 x 800, to go with its quad-core processor and “all-day battery life.”
We’ve been testing the Fire 8 HD for a couple weeks and it’s a very capable tablet for viewing streaming media like Netflix and Prime Video, as the stereo speakers are excellent. Standby battery could be a bit better and the display does have a lower 189 ppi compared to Apple’s Retina standard of 326 ppi, which is noticeable.
If you don’t want to shell out for an iPad for the kids, the Fire 8 HD will do the job for a fraction of the price, now available for $79.99 instead of $99.99, saving you $20.
Amazon Fire 7 also on Sale
The Fire 7 with its 7-inch display at 1024 x 600 resolution and 171 ppi is also on sale, now available for $49.99, saving you $10 off its regular price of $59.99.
The tablet has a quad-core 1.3 GHz processor with 1GB of RAM and has up to 8 hours of battery life, to go with a mono speaker. At this discounted price, it’s in the range of impulse buy for someone looking for a no-frills tablet which can stream media and surf the web.
