It’s been a while since Amazon had a sale on their tablets, with the days before Valentine’s Day being the last time. But now in April, Amazon has announced that it will have a sale on the 7-inch Fire tablet for $39, and a sale on the 8-inch Fire HD 8 for $69 until April 14th.
The Fire HD 8 may be the one to go for, since it has the highest specs and best performance. Fire HD 8 is actually the cheapest tablet in existence with complete Wi-Fi cover, featuring dual-band 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi. The 8-inch screen has a HD resolution of 1280 x 800 and is protected by Gorilla Glass to make it scratch resistant and tough.
It has Dolby Atmos stereo sound and 5.1 virtual surround sound, a 0.3MP front camera, and 2MP rear camera with 720p HD video recording.
Just like the 7-inch Fire, the Fire HD 8 tablet runs on Amazon’s Android based Fire OS with Alexa with all of its features, services, and easy setup included.
It’s powered by the quad-core 1.3 GHz MediaTek MT8135 processor, with 1GB of RAM, and options of 16GB or 32GB of storage, with support for 200GB of microSD card storage. The battery capacity is excellent, with a 12 hour battery life. Color options of the tablet are black, blue, pink, and orange.
The 7-inch Fire tablet has all the same services and the same Fire OS, but has a lower resolution display, at 1024 x 600, and also a slower processor, powered by the quad-core MediaTek MT8127 processor instead, along with options of 8GB or 16GB of storage, with 200GB microSD card support, and 1GB of RAM.
The cameras are the same, but it only has single-band 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, a mono speaker, and a 7 hour battery life.
Other than that, it has everything from blue light filter to Mayday button to Alexa personal assistant to easy access to 50 million titles of movies, TV-shows, games, apps, books, magazines, and free content regularly.
