A pair of Amazon Kindle Fire models get $50 haircut for Cyber Monday
Now that the clock has struck 12, it is Cyber Monday and a pair of Amazon Kindle Fire models are on sale. The 16GB Amazon Kindle Fire HD is reduced in price by $50, to $119. And the new Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7 is also the recipient of a $50 haircut, which takes the price of the slate down to $179. According to Amazon, the deals are good through Monday, or as supplies last, whichever comes first.

With the Cyber Monday pricing, the Amazon Kindle Fire HD is cheaper for the 32GB variety than the 16GB model. The Kindle Fire HD is equipped with a 7 inch LCD screen with resolution of 1280 x 800 which works out to a pixel density of 216ppi. A dual-core 1.2GHz TI OMAP 4460 processor is under the hood with 1GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage. Android 4.0 is pre-installed.

The Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7 has a 7 inch screen with a much improved 1920 x 1200 resolution. The pixel density is a much higher 323ppi. This model has serious horsepower with a quad-core 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU doing the driving. 2GB of RAM is inside this model which features 16GB of native storage. 8.8GB is available to the user. There is a front-facing snapper, but no camera on the back. Android 4.2.2 is installed. Perhaps the most famous feature on the new slate is the Mayday button which brings you technical and customer support via a video chat.

If you don't mind not having any Google applications on your tablet, and if having to buy content, apps and cloud based storage from Amazon doesn't bother you, why not take advantage of the $50 Cyber Monday price break from Amazon on one or both Kindle Fire models involved in the sale?
