If you're in the market for an ultra-affordable tablet but the newest Fire 7 edition
feels too small or nowhere near sharp and powerful enough to fit your needs, you should know Amazon's Fire HD 8 is also on sale right now at a pretty significant discount. We're talking 30 bucks shaved off an already reasonable price for an 8-inch slate with your choice of 16 or 32 gigs of internal storage space, as well as a microSD card slot and the same quad-core 1.3
GHz processor as the Fire 7 (2019)
Compared to its little brother, the 2018-refreshed Fire HD 8
comes with a sharper screen sporting a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels, an extra half a gig of memory bringing the RAM count up to 1.5GB, dual stereo speakers, and a longer battery life of up to 10 hours between charges in mixed use. Unfortunately, the aforementioned $30 markdown is not available for all Amazon Fire HD 8 buyers, requiring a Prime membership.
Basically, you're looking at a revival of a very popular Prime Day deal
from a couple of months ago, beating recent promotions
offered by Woot
with no special requirements. In case you're wondering, yes, there's a good chance a new Fire HD 8 model will be unveiled at an event next week
, but even if that happens, the upgrades might not be substantial and the price is likely to surge.
- Amazon Prime Day is upon us—and we've picked out the best deals and promotions for you, from Amazon and others, and brought them to our PhoneArena deal hub.
So, yeah, this feels like a pretty good time to purchase a Fire HD 8 from last year at an essentially unbeatable price, and the same goes for the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet. Available in three eye-catching colors at a cool $40 off list for Prime subscribers only, the robust 8-incher comes with a "kid-proof" case, a complimentary year of Amazon FreeTime Unlimited access, a 2-year worry-free guarantee, 32GB local digital hoarding room, and the same exact specs as the regular variant otherwise.
Curiously enough, the Fire HD 10 and Fire HD 10 Kids Edition are available at their normal prices at the time of this writing, although it's probably safe to expect the two to join the discount party before long. That's usually how Amazon rolls
, isn't it?
