After months of anticipation, the Black Friday shopping season is just a few hours away and now is the time for you to pick up your favorite gadget at a bargain price.
Apple’s iPad Air 2 and Microsoft’s Surface Pro 4 hybrid tablets received some rather significant price drops that will never occur again until the 2016 Black Friday. Though, both tablets remain quite expensive for a large proportion of the tablet market customers, or some people are just looking for a tablet that can undertake just the bare essentials and don’t mind all the rings and bells that the aforementioned offer.
Well, when it comes to the latter case, we cannot think of any other device rather than Amazon’s Fire 7-inch tablet, which can be purchased for a shocking $34.99 from BestBuy – dropped from $49.99.
Moreover, if the price makes you a bit skeptical regarding the device’s quality, the respective Best Buy page will prove you otherwise, as the Fire tablet has accumulated 4.4 out 5 rating from owners’ reviews. More specifically, 321 out of the 344 reviewers would recommend you buying the Amazon Fire.
The Amazon Fire sports a modest 7-inch touchscreen running on a resolution of 1024 x 600, while it is powered by a quad-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz, coupled with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage. Despite the $34.99 price, the tablet comes with rear and front facing cameras, both of which are capable of video recording – the back camera shoots at 2MP.
Connectivity wise, the Fire has been fitted with WiFi, Bluetooth, 3.5mm headphone jack and microUSB port. It measures at 7.5 x 4.5 x 0.4 inches, weighs only 11 ounces and is dressed in black. All in all, it is the perfect fit for a tablet that you need on the go – or at the beach.
It comes with Amazon’s home brewed Fire OS 5 operating system straight out of the box, which could be a little tricky to adjust to at first but overall it is a solid OS.
Furthermore, the particular deal comes with a 90-day warranty and free shipping.
