Amazon debuts Black Friday 2016 tablet sales, 7" Fire and Fire HD 8 models up at notable discounts
Amazon has kicked off its Black Friday 2016 tablet promotion, meaning that now is the time to get your hands on an affordable tablet. The prices range from $33 to $83 depending on the exact model and the bundled accessories.

The entry-level 7" Amazon Fire Tablet is up for grabs at $33. That's $16.66 (33%) down compared to the usual retail price of $49.99. While the 7" Amazon Fire Tablet is definitely not a tablet that mobile hardware fans can get excited about, the slab does integrate the basic features that most customers need from a basic tablet. You won't be using the 7-inch Fire for any productivity tasks but the device is well-equipped for basic tasks such as light video consumption and web browsing. 

The $33.33 price tag is good for the version with 8GB of integrated storage. If you're looking for some protection, Amazon sells the 8GB model in a bundle with a case and a screen protector at $51. The 16GB version is currently priced at $53.33, 24% down from its usual price of $69.99.

For a better overall experience, you may want to get the Amazon Fire HD 8. Usually priced at $90, the tablet currently goes for just $60. Some of the upgrades that the Fire HD 8 brings over the cheaper 7" Fire include a larger and crisper display, better speakers, and better battery life. Also, the Fire HD 8 comes with 16GB of integrated storage space at this price. You can bundle the HD 8 with a screen protector and a case for $83, which isn't a bad deal overall.
