If you have a previous generation Fire HD 8 or Fire HD 10 tablet, the Show Mode Dock, which essentially turns those tablets into Echo Shows, has just gone on sale for the lowest price that it has ever been. The Show Mode Dock for Fire HD 8 is on sale for $27.99 and the Show Mode Dock for Fire HD 10 is on sale for $38.49. These are only compatible with the older 2018 8th-gen Fire HD 8, 2017 7th-gen Fire HD 8, and 2017 7th-gen Fire HD 10. These are NOT compatible with the current 2020 10th-gen Fire HD 8 and current 2019 9th-gen Fire HD 10. If you’re not sure which generation tablet you have, find its listing under You Registered Devices and the generation will be listed there. See my Show Mode Dock review for all the details, but this dock comes with a case that plugs into the micro USB port on the tablet so that it charges when you place it on the dock and automatically switches the the Echo Show-like mode when docked.

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.
Amazon’s new Show Mode feature for their Fire HD 8 and Fire HD 10 tablets does a great job of replicating most of the Echo Show’s capabilities, as I discussed in my earlier article about the feature. The Show Mode Dock for those tablets is an optional accessory that adds a level of convenience to the Show Mode feature by holding the tablet at a viewable angle and seamlessly automating the transition between Show Mode and regular tablet mode.
