Amazon’s already traditional lightning deals continue with a wicked one-day-only Kindle Fire HDX 7 sale, which sees the somewhat overlooked LTE-enabled tablet drop to a starting price of $229. That’s 100 bucks off the 16 GB model’s recommended retail value, and includes special offers (read ads and sponsored screensavers).
The ad-free 16 GB HDX 7 variation with 4G LTE is likewise slashed a healthy $100, to $244, and the high-speed connectivity option is available on both AT&T and Verizon. Looking higher on the totem pole, the 32 GB LTE slate starts at $269 and the 64 GB is $309.
Getting rid of “special offers” costs here too, driving the marked down grand total to $284 and $324 respectively, all new price tags being $100 more “sensible” than before. As such, the Full HD 7 incher reaches all-time lows across the board, making your purchase decision a no-brainer regardless of the Android-based gizmo’s age.
Yes, it’s nearly one year old, which means a sequel could be looming large on the horizon, but no way will the follow-up offer so much for so little. 1,920 x 1,200 pix res screen resolution, quad-core 2.2 GHz Snapdragon 800 heat, 2 GB RAM, skinned Android Jelly Bean, Dolby Digital Plus sound enhancement, 9 mm profile, 311-gram figure? Forget about it.
