Today is Black Friday, the biggest shopping day of the year and as such you’ll get some serious discounts in all stores, both physical and online. Amazon couldn’t help it and drastically cut their prices for all their tablets, big or small, Kids Editions or not. We have a look at them and we start off with the cheapest model, the Fire 7, priced at just $39.
The device lost $26 of its original value and we’re talking UK prices here, in case it sounds weird to you. Reductions should be similar for all Europe and not too far off for USA too. Amazon Fire 7 comes with a 7 inch 1024 x 600 pixel display, a 1.3 GHz quad core CPU and 1 GB of RAM. Basically that spells two tasks for it: e-reading and casual gaming. Fire OS is offered on top of a customized Android, with Amazon Prime Video, Amazon underground and Alexa.
Amazon Fire HD 8 also gets a price cut, going for just $66, after a 38% discount. That one offers 16 GB of storage, but it also has a 32 GB pricier version. It has up to 12 hours of battery life, a 1.3 GHz quad core CPU and 1.5 GB of RAM. Dolby Audio should offer some kickass renditions of indie music. A microSD card slot completes the package, plus Alexa and Kids Parental Controls.
Things get bigger with the Amazon Fire HD 10, that comes with a 10.1 inch Full HD screen, 32 GB of storage and Dolby Audio, plus microSD and dual band WiFi. Stereo speakers and exclusive features like X-Ray, ASAP, On Deck and more are here. This one drops to $146, after a 40% cut.
All these devices get Amazon Prime subscriptions, by the way. The little ones also get their share of goodies, with the Fire 7 Kids Edition at $93 and the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition for $119. These ones have a protective cover, 2 year guarantee and a year access to the Fire for Kids.
Bonus: extra discounts for other products from Amazon:
