Amazon has unveiled a brand new limited-time price reduction on several of their popular tablets including the 7-inch and 8-inch 16GB Kindle Fire HDX models, as well as the HD model of the 8-inch tablet. To date, these tablets have well over 12,000 reviews from customers on the site and rank at 4-stars or better. The tablets are also the subject of our guide book by author Shelby Johnson, so we wanted to pass the latest sale info on to interested parties, as we love the Kindle tablets here at Tech Media Source.
During the limited time offer, the Kindle Fire HDX is reduced from $229 to $199, the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9-inch is reduced from $379 to $339, and then Kindle Fire HD 8.9-inch is down to $189 (regularly $269). All three make wonderful, inexpensive gifts for that special someone in your life, as they offer Wi-Fi capability, along with the many great features of the Kindle tablets such as ability to stream and play various forms of media (music, movies, videos). The tablet has also come a long way with newer features such as the Mayday help feature, and a newly-improved display screen, and overall design.
The latest version of the Kindle Fire, the HDX model, was just released last year, along with an improved HD model. It’s unknown if Amazon will release updated models of their tablets later this year, but we expect they might to keep up with competitors such as Google’s Nexus 7 and the Apple iPad tablets.
We have not seen any mention of how long this Kindle Fire HD tablet sale will last for, although Amazon also ran a recent promotion with a code which appeared to be Super Bowl-related, before this newer offer started. It also appears there may be reduced prices on models of the tablets with more storage capacity, for those customers interested in a bit more space for their media and other files.
Valentines Day 2014 falls on February 14th, so that leaves a little less than two weeks for interested customers to pick one up as a gift for the special holiday.
