Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9 inch model for $299 and the Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9 4G LTE for $499. Amazingly, a year of data costs only $50. And if you're wondering how Amazon can afford to sell these tablets at such low prices, it all comes back to what we told you last year with the launch of the OG Amazon Kindle Fire. First, Amazon sells content like video, games and music. Amazon also has its app store through which it sells apps. Finally, there is the cloud-based storage that it sells.
Last year, Amazon didn't have an LTE connected model. Now, in order to allow users to buy a year's worth of data for just $50, Amazon is selling tons of ads to help subsidize the low prices of the Kindle Fire line, and the word is that users cannot opt out of receiving these ads.
