Valentine’s day is right around the corner. And Amazon seems to think you are going to buy a Kindle Fire HDX or two for the special occasion. Right now Amazon is offering the Kindle Fire HDX for $199 and the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 for $339. Which is definitely a great price, especially when you factor in the pricing
The Kindle Fire HDX has a nice 2560×1600 resolution display on the 8.9-inch version and a 1920×1200 resolution display on the 7-inch version. There’s also a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor powering both of them, 2GB of RAM, 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB of storage, and a pretty hefty battery. While Amazon won’t tell us how big the battery actually is, we do know that it is a pretty big battery as it did last us quite a while when we were reviewing it a few months ago. And to be able to get a tablet for this low of a price, is definitely a good price.
Keep in mind that the Kindle Fire’s do not have Google Services, so if you don’t need or want Gmail, Google Play, YouTube, or any other Google service, then the Kindle Fire HDX is a great tablet for you. Especially if you use Amazon Prime, because then you’ve got Amazon Prime Instant Video on your Kindle Fire as well and being able to quickly buy things from Amazon from the comfort of your couch. Which is a pretty dangerous thing these days.
The Kindle Fire HDX is a pretty great tablet, and I’d recommend it to anyone that doesn’t need or use Google services on their tablet. For me it was difficult to use because of the lack of Google services. How many of you are going to pick one up for Valentines day?
