Amazon Fire HD 10 Tablet Gets $50 Price Cut

By Radu Iorga

Black Friday discounts have started popping up on Amazon and of course they have to do with Amazon Fire tablets. The best one is the 32 GB Fire HD 10 Tablet pricing, which gets down to just $99.99.

That’s a $50 price cut from the regular price and it’s the lowest offered so far. If you want the device bundled with the Show Mode charging dock, you’ll spend $144.99, instead of $190. The Fire HD 10 Kids Edition Tablet is also being discounted and it comes at $144.99. It arrives with a kid proof case that offers extra protection for bumps, splashes, spills and intense drops.

To me the most appealing offer is still the Amazon Fire HD 10 Tablet model, at $99.99. There’s a 10.1 inch Full HD screen in the mix, a MediaTek quad core 1.8 GHz processor, 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage, as well as a microSD card slot. It weighs 499 grams, has WiFi ac, microUSB connectivity and a 2 MP back camera, plus a front VGA shooter. It’s available in black, blue or red.

The Kids editions also have parental controls, special content for the little ones, like games, educational apps and series. Tempted by the offers?

Amazon drops $25 free shipping minimum for all US holiday shoppers

Amazon drops $25 free shipping minimum for all US holiday shoppers

Amazon’s latest perk will be available not just for its Prime members, but for all holiday shoppers this year. The online retailer announced that starting today, November 5, all US-based Amazon customers can get free shipping with no minimum purchase amount. While the perk lasts only for a “limited time,” Amazon explains the promotion will affect orders that arrive in time for the Christmas holiday.

Typically, Amazon has a $25 minimum order amount for non-Prime members to get free shipping. This promotion waives that minimum for the time being, and puts Amazon in-step with competitor Target, which waived its $35 order minimum and now offers free two-day shipping to all customers through December 22. Walmart, arguably Amazon’s biggest competitor in the US, has kept its $35 minimum threshold for free shipping for this holiday season (so far, at least).

Amazon is trying to capture as much of the holiday shopping market as possible as it faces growing competition from the likes of Target, Walmart, and other retailers. Amazon already offers free two-day shipping to its Prime members as a standard benefit, but those customers pay $120 annually for Prime. Amazon raised the price of a Prime membership by $20 earlier this year.

New Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Priced at $130, Available With 6 Months of Free Reading

By Radu Iorga

It’s getting pretty cold outside, so it’s probably time to stay in bed and read a good book. It may also help that Amazon launched a new version of the Kindle Paperwhite, priced at $130 and coming with 6 months of unlimited reading.

The previous Paperwhite was a big hit and Amazon want to capitalize on it. The new version fixes some of the issues of the predecessor and makes it smoother, so the screen isn’t below the outer bezel anymore. Amazon also added an extra LED to the built in light system, for a total of 5 LEDs, that will aid your reading. The product is water resistant, so hurray for bath tub reading.

The first Paperwhite had 4 GB of on board storage, but the new version has 8 GB of storage and an option to upgrade o 32 GB, for an extra price. The screen size stays at 6 inches and the pixel density is 300 ppi. Bluetooth is also here and you can use Audible to listen to your fave audio books. Amazon also added Audible Originals as a means of getting a better experience.

The best part of the experience is the 6 month subscription to Kindle Unlimited, which is usually $30 separately. This service gives you access to a million books for zero pay thanks to the offer. After the trial expires you will pay $9.99 to keep the service. Amazon is going to update the Paperwhite home screen and also add personalization settings. The price of the new Kindle Paperwhite starts at $130, with ads on the lockscreen.

It costs $20 to remove them and preorders are available now. Shipments start on November 7th.

Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: New Hardware Received From Amazon and It Works Great!

By Tim

The other day I put up a video about needing some new infrastructure hardware here to replace stuff that was just worn out. I ordered those items late Monday evening and had them from Amazon by noon today!.

I did a short unboxing and hands on and there are some serious things you may not realize about the video that will be posted below.

I shot everything on the the old BLU Studio Energy 2 as usual, but…. the initial segment ended up being taken in portrait mode, so I proceeded to play around in Openshot during the editing process and quite by accident I got the cool rotation as the first segment began.

Bottom line here is that if you need a very good USB keyboard and a decent wired USB mouse you can not go wrong with this item from Amazon.  You can find it here for only $9.99 currently for both items!

Below is the video and as usual please like it, share it, subscribe, etc!

That is all for now, except please subscribe to our channel or click those big donation buttons on the website here!

Amazon Fire 7 and Fire HD 10 Tablets Get Discounted

By Radu Iorga

Amazon is offering some serious discounts this week for its Android-based Fire tablets. We’re talking about the Amazon Fire 7 and Amazon Fire HD 10. The Amazon Fire 7 slate is on sale for Prime members only and the discount applies for both the 8 GB model and the 16 GB unit.

Both versions have microSD card slots and they come with colorful cases, in black, yellow, blue and red. The Amazon Fire 7 tablet packs a 7 inch screen with a 1024 x 600 pixel resolution, a quad core 1.3 GHz CPU and a 2 MP rear shooter, plus a VGA front cam. We’ve got a 3.5 mm audio jack and an integrated speaker. Amazon promises up to 8 hours of mixed usage, which is not half bad.

A selling point is clearly the Amazon Alexa integration within the Fire 7, letting you use voice to ask questions, control smart home devices and more. From what I can see the product is priced at $4.99 right now and with Prime you can save $15 on this item.

The Fire HD 10 Tablet has Alexa Hands Free, with a 10.1 inch Full HD screen, 32 GB of storage or 64 GB of storage. Available in black, blue and red, the product packs a quad core CPU clocked at 1.8 GHz. There’s also 2 GB of RAM and up to 10 hours of battery life. We’ve got a microSD card slot, Kindle eBooks, hands free messaging and video calls. This product weighs 500 grams and measures 9.8 mm in thickness.

The product is priced at $149.99 on Amazon, but with a Prime subscription you will go down to $109.99.
