While it was Barnes & Noble (BKS) that really started the whole run on 7-inch tablets with its Nook Color, Amazon (AMZN) took the ball and ran with the Kindle Fire tablet. Soon the small and cheap tablets were booming with consumers, and even Apple (AAPL) was forced to retreat from its long-held position that the only real tablet was a big one. The Kindle Fire HDX 7-inch tablet is this year’s offering from Amazon … and it’s better than ever.
Plus, if you played your cards right, you could have saved big money on the Kindle Fire HDX (which is already competitively priced). The Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7-inch tablet was one of Amazon’s Cyber Monday deals, with AMZN knocking $50 off the price and offering free shipping.
Since then, it’s also been offered as an Amazon Gold Box deal at 20% savings. In other words, if you want a Kindle Fire HDX, keep an eye on the bargain tracking sites and Amazon might just discount it again during the holiday season.
Most tech publications have offered a Kindle Fire HDX review that’s largely positive. But if you’re not sure if the new, upgraded Kindle Fire 7 is for you, read on for details about Amazon’s most advanced compact tablet yet.
