Black Friday is over, but that doesn’t mean the deals have stopped flowing. It’s Cyber Monday, and Amazon has posted a great deal for those who need to stock up on a Kindle Fire or two. Using the coupon code “FIREDEAL” you can take an extra $30 off the normal price of $160, making it a $130 that’ll make for a great entertainment device for you or a great gift idea to give to others. This deal will only be available until the end of the day, so be sure to act fast.
The Amazon Kindle Fire was originally launched in 2011, but Amazon launched a refresh this past summer and delivered an even better experience for an even better price. You still get the same 7-inch form factor — in fact, the device hasn’t changed much in looks at all compared to its predecessor — but better internals and components have been utilized to help shore up what was already a nice experience.
Of course, it’s imperative to remember that this isn’t your typical Android experience. Amazon has heavily customized the OS with an interface of its own. The interface is designed to deliver Amazon content in the fastest and easiest way possible.
Kindle Books, Amazon Instant Video access, cloud music, the Amazon Appstore and more all take center stage for entertainment. The lack of the Google Play Store is a bummer, but the Amazon Appstore grows by the day and casual users should have no problem finding some great games to play and apps to use should they want the Kindle Fire for anything more than Amazon’s own services. Be sure to head to Amazon’s website if you’re sold.
