The Show Mode Docks are back on sale at the same introductory prices that were offered during the pre-order period earlier in the month. The Show Mode Dock for Fire HD 8 is $34.99 and the Show Mode Dock for Fire HD 10 is $49.99. Both of those prices are $5 off the regular price. If you’re buying both the dock and the tablet, be sure to get either the Fire HD 8 + Dock bundle for $79.99 or the Fire HD 10 + Dock bundle for $144.99 instead of buying each item separately. The bundles will save you an additional $5. For more info, see my overview of Show Mode and my review of the Show Mode Dock.
