As expected, Amazon has announced refreshed versions of their Fire 7 and Fire HD 8 tablets, as well as an updated Fire 7 Kids Edition tablet and an all-new Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet. The new tablets are good, but not dramatic, updates to the tablets they’re replacing. If you purchase any combination of 3 tablets, regardless of which you select, you can receive 20% off if you use promo code FIRE3PACK at checkout. Read more ›
They aren’t really much to look at, since once you’ve seen one black rectangle with a screen in the middle, you’ve seen them all, but above are thumbnail images of the new Amazon Fire and Fire HD 8 tablets that are very likely going to be announced as early as tomorrow. These are the new Amazon tablets that passed through FCC approval a couple of weeks ago. Read more ›
A pair of new tablets from Amazon have just gone through FCC approval. First spotted by Liliputing, the two tablets have been filed with the FCC under shell companies to try and hide the fact that they are made by Amazon, but there are telltale signs that make it certain these are future Amazon Fire tablets. As is always the case, photos and other revealing aspects of the FCC filing have been held back due to a confidentiality request, but there are still bits of interesting information to learn from the fillings.

Amazon is having a sale on several of their Fire tablets. The best deal of the bunch is the Fire HD 8 for $69.99. That’s $20 off the retail price for the newest tablet in Amazon’s lineup. In my pricing guide’s scale of Okay/Good/Great, this qualifies as a “Good” price because it’s just $10 more than the the lowest price this tablet has ever been, which was during this past Black Friday. We probably won’t see a price lower than this until Prime Day in July.
The Fire 7″ tablet is also on sale for $39.99. That price is just “Okay” because it has been $33.33 several times in the past. A better deal is the Fire Kids Edition tablet for $79.99. That savings of $20 off the retail price qualifies it as a “Good” price because the kids edition tablet does not go on sale nearly as often as the regular Fire tablet.
Amazon just put their 7″ Fire Tablet on sale for $39.99. Outside of Prime Day and Black Friday, that’s pretty much as low as this tablet gets. If you want double the storage, the 16GB model is also on sale for $59.99, but remember these tablets do have microSD card slots to expand the internal storage. If you’ve got kids, you may want to consider getting the Kids Edition tablet on sale for $79.99 instead. It’s the exact same model as the regular 7″ tablet, but comes with a 2 year worry-free replacement guarantee for when your little one decides it would make a perfect surfboard and cracks the screen. This sale is expected to last through Saturday.
In addition to extending their existing Echo and Tablet sale, Amazon has added the Fire HD 8 to the sale for $69.99. That’s $10 more than the lowest it has ever been, which ranks this deal as “Good” in my buyer’s guide “Okay/Good/Great” scale. While not all colors of the 16GB version will arrive by Christmas, the 32GB version on sale for $99.99 is in stock. You can also see if Prime Now has the tablet in stock in your area. This tablet was just updated earlier this year and is the newest tablet in Amazon’s lineup.
Amazon has just put several of their tablets on sale. For the most part, these sale prices are not too impressive, but if you’re looking for an easy gift idea for someone, you can’t go wrong with a tablet, and it’s unlikely they’ll be any cheaper than this before Christmas. The Fire 7″ Tablet is $39.99, which falls under the “Okay Price” point according to my buyer’s guide. Prime Day and Black Friday prices are usually around $33 to $35, so this is a usual sale price outside of those special days. The Fire HD 10 tablet is $199.99, which is slightly above my buyer’s guide’s “Okay Price” of $179.99. Oddly enough, this tablet did not go on sale during Prime Day, so while this isn’t a great price overall, it’s as low as you’ll likely see for a while. Lastly, the Fire Kids Tablet is $89.99, which like the other deals, is an “Okay Price” point.
Target.com currently has the Amazon Fire 7″ Tablet for just $28.33. That is the new lowest price that I’ve ever seen for this tablet. Target is matching Amazon’s $33.33 price, but taking an additional 15% off at checkout. It seems like online stock is limited because some storage and color varients are already sold out, so if you’re interested in picking up this tablet at this rock bottom price, you better act fast. Be sure to check availability of all colors if the one you prefer is sold out: Black, Pink, Blue, Orange
It looks like all colors have sold out, but it’s still worth checking for yourself since it’s not uncommon for a few to be available sporadically throughout the day. You can also try price matching at a physical Target store.
Amazon’s Black Friday Sales are now live! The Amazon Fire 7″ Tablet is $33.33. This matches the lowest price this tablet has ever been. Just like during Prime day, I expect this to be among the most popular deals today, so be sure to get your orders in early incase it sells out. Alternatively, you can get the Fire Kids Edition Tablet for $74.99 which includes the same tablet, but throws in a 2-year worry-free guarantee, a kid-proof case, and a 1 year subscription to Amazon FreeTime Unlimited. Don’t forget to check out all the other Black Friday deals on Amazon devices.
