While the tablet market is one which has seen a general level of decline over the last couple of years, last year Amazon brought to market a tablet which instantly gained significant traction. This was largely due to the price, as Amazon's Fire Tablet became available from launch at only $49.99. Making it one of the absolute cheapest tablets around. While $49.99 is great price in itself, it looks as though Amazon is sweetening the deal at the moment as they have now dropped another $10 off the cost. As a result, you can currently pick up the Amazon Fire Tablet for only $39.99. A price which is difficult to argue with, even if you are not looking for a new tablet.
In terms of what is on offer with the Fire Tablet, as this is designed to be ultra-affordable in nature, the specs are not the absolute best. However, for the money, they aren't bad either. The Amazon Fire Tablet comes equipped with a 7-inch display which makes use of a 1024 x 600 resolution. Inside, the Fire Tablet comes loaded with 1GB RAM, 8GB internal storage (microSD card slot also included) and is powered by a quad-core processor (clocking at 1.3 GHz). This is a tablet which also includes a 2-megapixel rear camera, as well as a VGA front-facing camera. The Fire Tablet comes running on Fire OS 5 and is equipped with a battery which looks to offer up to 7 hours of usage between charges. Not forgetting that if you are an Amazon Prime member, then you will be able to also make use of the extensive catalog of Amazon digital, cloud and streaming services including Prime Instant Video, Music and Photos.
