As I’ve mentioned numerous instances earlier than, Amazon gear goes on sale like clockwork. For instance, in late June the brand new Hearth HD Eight pill was discounted for the primary time. Then once more in July. Now, only a few weeks later, right here we’re once more.

For a restricted time, and whereas provides final, the Amazon Hearth HD 8 (32GB) is $59.99, a financial savings of $30. You may also get the Hearth HD Eight Plus (32GB) for $79.99, one other financial savings of $30.

The previous-gen Hearth HD Eight was an excellent pill at an amazing value, however the brand new mannequin ups the ante with a quicker processor, USB-C charging, a bit extra RAM, higher battery life and smarter front-camera placement.

(For what it is price, I disagree that an Amazon Prime membership is “a should.” Sure, it features a ton of media goodies, however you may nonetheless do lots with the pill — play video games, use apps, learn ebooks, watch Netflix and so forth — with out Prime.)

However the HD 10 for $100 is fairly nice as effectively.
