Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7 coming to AT&T beginning Friday
Starting tomorrow, the 32GB Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7 is coming to AT&T. For a limited time only, the slate will be $49.99. But there is a catch. To pick up the tablet at that price, you must also purchase the Amazon Fire Phone. This is quite an attempt by the carrier to move inventory of Amazon's handset, which hasn't exactly been selling like hotcakes. In fact, you might say that the Fire Phone, an AT&T exclusive, has been selling like coldcakes.

If you don't want to be coerced into buying the phone, you can pick up the tablet by itself for $0 down with installment payments of $10 a month for 20 months. That, of course, does not include a service plan. On the other hand, you can lock yourself up for two years by buying the tablet for $99.99. That subsidized price requires you to sign a two-year pact and agree to a qualifying data plan.

The Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7 comes with a 7 inch LCD screen, with resolution of 1920 x 1200. That works out to a pixel density of 323ppi. Under the hood is a quad-core 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 CPU, with the Adreno 330 GPU handling graphics. 2GB of RAM is on board the slate, which offers 16GB of native storage. Of that amount, 8.8GB is available to the user. Unfortunately, there is no microSD slot on this slate. There is no rear-facing camera, but there is Mayday. This is the live video chat support available 24/7/365. And don't worry if you're not dressed. The Amazon expert can't see you, although you will be able to see him/her.

The Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7 uses a forked version of Android, which means no Google services. If that doesn't bother you, and you don't mind having the Amazon Appstore on board instead of the Google Play Store, you can order the tablet starting tomorrow from the online AT&T Store, or from the carrier's brick and mortar locations.

The teacher asked Jimmy, "Why is your cat at school today Jimmy?" Jimmy replied crying, "Because I heard my daddy tell my mommy, 'I am going to eat that p***y once Jimmy leaves for school today!'"

Fire...sale? The fail on both devices stinks all the way over here.
