Amazon recently announced its "all-new" version of the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablets, and they are going to be available beginning October 4 – with pre-orders already live. However, Amazon has already discounted these tablets, if you are willing to buy two of them. You can get $65 off if you purchase two tablets, which means you're paying $195. That's basically buying one tablet and getting the second one for half off. Not a bad deal at all.
These tablets from Amazon are made for kids. So that means that they sport a much thicker and larger bumper around the edges of the tablet. So that they can take a few drops, because we all know kids are not careful with tech. But Amazon also has a few other features included here, like parental controls and free time. Which allows parents to limit what apps and services the kids can use. So parents won't need to worry about what content kids are actually consuming on their tablet. That's definitely a good thing in today's world. This tablet is a 8-inch tablet with a quad-core processor and 1.5GB of RAM. Not the most powerful tablet out there, but with Fire OS here, you're still going to get a pretty good experience. There is 32GB of storage available, along with a micro SD card slot which is going to allow for up to an additional 400GB of storage being added.
This item is also eligible for Amazon Prime's free shipping. Which includes free two-day shipping, and pretty cheap (usually $3.99) next-day shipping if you need it extra fast. If you are not an Amazon Prime member yet, you can sign up for a free trial of Amazon Prime. You'll get 30 days free (if you're a student, you get 6 months), and then it's $119/year (or $59/year for students). Prime members do get a whole lot more than just free shipping though, so be sure to check out the full benefits.
