Amazon Launches Sale on Fire 8 HD, Fire 7 Tablets Starting at $49.99


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.
