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.
