Good Deal: Kindle Fire HD on sale for $129 from Amazon Canada

kindlefire1

If you’re not looking for the latest and fastest tablet from Amazon, Apple, Samsung et al, you may want to check out today’s discount on the OG Kindle Fire HD.

Last year’s model is a little slower and not quite as slick as the new HDX variety, but Amazon has put the 16GB model on sale for $129 today only. It still comes with a 7-inch 1280×800 pixel display, a 1.5Ghz dual-core Texas Instruments OMAP processor, 1GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, and the new Fire OS 3.1, and Canadians have access to Amazon’s excellent selection of books and Android apps/games.

Of course, Canadian Kindle devices don’t have the advantages afforded to their American counterparts: no Prime streaming, no MP3 store, and books tend to be more expensive. But at $129, this is about the best “cheap” Android tablet you can buy.

    does amazon canada have movie rentals like Prime? Otherwise, this is just a tablet, right?

    Kobo Arc 7 is currently on sale at Walmart for $99. Given that the Kobo has full access to Google Play, I’ll say this is a better buy than the Kindle.

      every original kindle Fire owner I know (those who bought the 2011 model) slapped CyanogenMod on it asap, effectively turning their kindles into Nexus 7s.

    Until you figure out how to make Amazon think you’re American.

    Either way, I’d rather unlock the kindle’s full potential with a custom ROM!
