The 7-inch Android / Fire OS tablet Amazon (Kindle) Fire HD 7 is on sale today for $79, which is as much as $60 off the regular price of $139, so this is definitely a significant price cut, and the lowest price I’ve ever seen on an Amazon tablet before: http://www.amazon.com/Fire-HD-Display-Wi-Fi-GB/
This Fire HD 7 is the 3rd generation (Kindle) Fire HD 7 tablet, and the newest version of the tablet computer that was released on October 2, 2014. Since then it has held a long position as one of the bestselling tablets on Amazon, and it has ranked top in customer satisfaction surveys.
In February it was upgraded with Firefly functionality too. And lately Amazon have started to emphasize the drop durability of the tablet too, said to be two times more shock proof than an iPad mini 3 even, which highlights the build quality of this tablet.
The specs for the Fire HD 7 ranges from a 7-inch HD screen with 1280 x 800 resolution, a 1.5 GHz quad-core MediaTek MT8135 processor, a/b/g/n 802.11 Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, with Dolby Audio stereo speakers, a 0.3MP front camera for video chats, a 2MP rear camera, and an 8.5 hour battery life.
Storage options are 16GB/8GB but with free unlimited cloud storage for content from Amazon. There are also five colors to chose between, and these are black, white, blue, pink, and yellow. There’s also a smaller 6-inch version of this tablet called Fire HD 6, and a Full HD version called Fire HDX 7, but neither of them can beat today’s price.
