kindle-50-dollars

Along with all of its usual wide-ranging discounts, Amazon has slashed the prices of its own hardware for Black Friday. Despite the fact that its newest Android-based tablets were already crazily good value for money, you can now pick them up even cheaper. Prices now start as low as $35 for a Kindle Fire tablet, while the special Kids Edition and HD 6 have seen generous discounts too…

The headliner of today’s Kindle Fire tablet deals is undoubtedly the 7-inch entry-level model. Previously, the 7-inch Kindle Fire tablet would cost you $50, or you could buy a 6-pack for $250. Now the tablet is available for $35. In other words, it’s so cheap, it’s virtually a no-brainer stocking stuffer if you’re looking to introduce a family member or friend to the world of tablets. It has a 7-inch 1024×600 display, 1.3GHz quad-core processor, 8GB internal storage with the option to expand up to 128GB as well as front and rear cameras.

With the 7-inch tablet being given a $15 discount, the same level price cut has also been applied to the Kids Edition which comes with a child-proof case, easy parental controls and a bunch of kid-safe content preinstalled as well as a 2-year worry-free guarantee. It’s now available for $84.99 (down from $99.99).

As well as cutting the prices of its 7-inch model, the higher-end (but smaller) Kindle Fire HD 6 is now 30% cheaper than it was previously. You’ll now be able to pick one up for just $69.99 (down from $99.99). Spec-wise, it’s more competitive than the 7-inch Fire. The 6-inch IPS screen boasts a resolution of 1280 x 800, giving it a pixel density of 252ppi, it also has a 1.5GHz quad-core processor as well as a an HD rear camera and VGA front camera.

Which ever one you decide to go with, any will make a decent first tablet for anyone on a tablet. Especially if you just want a basic, portable media consumption device with easy access to Amazon’s products and services.
