Save 45% on the 32GB Fire HD 8 tablet from Amazon
Earlier this month, we told you that Best Buy was selling the 16GB Amazon Fire HD 8 for $49.99, a savings of $30 or 38% in percentage terms. But you might be glad that you didn't pick up the forked Android powered slate after we tell you the deal available right now at Amazon. The latter, which we assume has warehouses stocked with boxes of Fire HD slates and Fire Phones, is now selling the 32GB model of the Fire HD 8 for $59.99. That will save you $50 or, oddly, a more impressive sounding 45%.

Besides doubling the amount of native storage (theoretically, that is), this is the same tablet that Best Buy was selling earlier this month. In other words, it features an 8-inch LCD panel with a resolution of 1280 x 800. Under the hood is the MediaTek MT8163 chipset, featuring a quad-core 1.3GHz CPU. You have to love copywriters. Amazon's page for the tablet says it has 50% more RAM than the Fire HD 7. Too bad the latter had just 1GB of RAM inside, which means that the Fire HD 8 carries 1.5GB of the stuff.

The tablet offers up to 12 hours of mixed use battery life, and there is a 2MP shooter on back. The .3MP front-facing camera will handle selfies and video chats. If you desire additional storage, there is a 256GB capacity microSD slot available. Color options are Black, Punch Red, Canary Yellow and Marine Blue.

Why does Amazon only make Garbage tablets?

If by garbage you mean low priced, it’s because when they did try to compete directly with the iPad in offering $250-$300 tablets they weren’t selling. So they went lower and now they’ve pretty much dominated the entire low market territory. Amazon is now the second biggest tablet maker behind Apple. They beat out Samsung. And considering Amazon wants you to use its tablets to access its services, they kind of win out.

Why not sue this company for selling tablets that barely last for a year?
