Looking for a solid gift this holiday for someone special? Yourself, maybe? We’ve reviewed both the 8-inch and 10-inch versions of Amazon’s latest tablets here on myITforum and still believe that the 8-inch version is probably the right size for a consumption device. For the holidays, Amazon now has the 8-inch version listed for only $49.99 – which is the regular price of the 7-inch version of the tablet.
Amazon is constantly improving these devices through updates, but here’s the current feature set:
- The next generation of our best-reviewed Fire tablet, with up to 12 hours of battery life, a vibrant 8″ HD display, a 1.3 GHz quad-core processor, 1.5 GB of RAM, and Dolby Audio. More durable than the latest iPad.
- 16 or 32 GB of internal storage and a microSD slot for up to 256 GB of expandable storage
- Now with Alexa, for quick access to the information and entertainment you want. Ask questions, play music, check your calendar, get the news, weather, and more – just press the home button and ask.
- Enjoy millions of movies, TV shows, songs, Kindle eBooks, apps and games – including Netflix, Facebook, HBO, Spotify, and more
- Prime members get unlimited access to over a thousand books and magazines, millions of songs, and thousands of movies and TV episodes – at no additional cost
- Watch downloaded videos anywhere with a Prime membership, Netflix plan, or Showtime subscription
- Enhance your entertainment experience with features you only get from Amazon, including ASAP, X-Ray, On Deck, Blue Shade, and FreeTime Parental Controls
Available from Amazon: Fire HD 8 Tablet with Alexa, 8″ HD Display, 16 GB, Black
