Even though it’s not time for a Black Friday or any sort of special celebration, Amazon has decided to discount the Fire 7 Kids Edition tablets, for a limited time only. Amazon Fire 7 Kids Edition is now priced at just $79.99 down from $99.99 from now till August 25th.
This is meant as a companion device for the little ones, offering access to content, games and services tailor made for the kids. There’s content from Nickelodeon, PBS and Disney, plus much more. And since the young ones tend to move around a lot and also break stuff, the device packs a tough protective case, making it harder for kids to put a dent in the slate’s case or screen.
As far as specs go, the Amazon Fire 7 Kids Edition packs a 7 inch screen, 16 GB of storage and a variety of color choices. There’s blue, yellow and pink among them. The product is available with 2 year of worry free guarantee and 1 year of Fire for Kids Unlimited and a bundled Kid Proof Case. A welcome feature is the microSD card slot, that lets you expand storage.
The 7 inch screen is an IPS and offers HD resolution, while the battery life sits at about 8 hours. A quad core CPU clocked at 1.3 GHz should be enough for the most basic of tasks, Netflix included. By the way, there’s also a VGA front camera and a 2 MP rear shooter and dual band WiFi. You can get the device here discounted.
