Wow! There’s another surprise discount from Amazon — this time on the high-definition version of their Kindle Fire tablets! Normally the 7-inch model costs $169 — but Amazon’s lowered its price to just $129! And Amazon’s also offering big discounts on their super-high-resolution Kindle Fire HDX tablets.
But if you look carefully, you’ll see that Amazon’s big 8.9-inch version of the Kindle Fire HDX has also been discounted by $40 — to just $339! And the 7-inch Kindle Fire HDX has also been discounted, to just $199. Both these devices come with all the high-end special features — like a built-in camera and Amazon’s special “Mayday” button for live customer support. The only catch is it’s a “limited-time offer”. Amazon hasn’t said when these discounts will end, but if you’re already looking for a high-definition Kindle, this is a good way to save some money.
Amazon sent me a promotional e-mail about the discounts on Sunday,tying the promotion to the NCAA “March Madness” playoffs. “Watch Every Game Live” reads a headline one the tablet. And apparently, these Kindle Fire tablets are “an official tablet of the NCAA”. But it’s a promotion that makes sense, since this is the one time of year when sports fans plan on watching lots of end-of-the-season basketball games.
So if you’re going to be watching them anyways, why not watch them in high-definition video on your handheld Kindle Fire tablet?
