Following Amazon’s discount of the Kindle Paperwhite yesterday, the company today has put its Fire HD 8 tablet up at a discounted price of just $49.99. That’s $30 off its original starting price of $79.99. While for that price you get 16GB of storage, for $79.99 ($30 less than its original price of $109.99), you can double the capacity to 32GB.
Mind you, the Fire HD 8 isn’t much of a tablet. You get an 8-inch 1280×800 IPS display, a quad-core 1.3GHz unnamed processor, 1.5GB of RAM, up to 10 hours of battery life, and Amazon’s Fire OS fork of Android. Of course, if you’re heavily invested in the Amazon Prime ecosystem, this device is gonna fit your lifestyle perfectly. And if you’re just looking for a tablet to check email, watch Netflix, and read books on, this tablet’s good for that as well.
There’s no word on how long Amazon will be hosting this discount so be sure to jump on it as soon as you can if you want in.
