Amazon Puts the Kindle Fire HD, Kindle Fire HDX on Sale for Cyber Monday

I thinkKindle Fire HDX Landscape Angle Amazon might be feeling the sting of an overstocked warehouse, because they just announced a couple exceptional deals on the Kindle Fire HDX and the Kindle Fire HD. Or maybe they just want to sell more stuff. In any case, you can now find the Kindle Fire HD (2013) for $119, or $20 off of the launch price. You can also get the Kindle Fire HDX for $179.

The KFHD on sale today is the updated model that launched a couple months ago. It's running the new FireOS 3.0 Mojito on a dual-core 1.5GHz CPU with 16GB of storage. This tablet is missing the camera and HDMI port found on last year's model, but it is also (for the time being) $80 cheaper than the retail price for last year's KFHD.

The Kindle Fire HDX is running Amazon's own Mojito OS on a 2.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm processor with 2GB of RAM, Wifi, Bluetooth, and a camera (more details here). It has one of the best 7" screens on the market (1920 x 1200 resolution), and it even tested better than the screen on the new iPad Mini in a recent test.

It comes with either 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB of Flash storage, and since this is a Kindle you can get it with or without ads. Only the Wifi model is on sale today, and only while supplies last.

6 Comments on Amazon Puts the Kindle Fire HD, Kindle Fire HDX on Sale for Cyber Monday

  1. A correction: the Fire HD (2013) that is on sale for $119 is the 16GB model (a $50 savings from the regular $169 price). The 8GB model remains at $139 (no savings).

    Note that Fire HD (2013) has a faster processor than last year’s Fire HD (1.5GHz vs 1.2GHz), and is redesigned: 9 mm narrower and 1.7 oz lighter.

    If Amazon is having any overstock problems on the 7 inch model, they have the opposite problem on the 8.9 inch model. They’re temporarily out of stock on the 64 GB Wi-Fi model and the 32 GB Wi-Fi model is 7-10 days on shipment.

  3. Ah. That would explain why they showed it as being marked down fro, $169 and not $139. Thanks!
