Deal Alert: Grab a Kindle Fire for just £89

Kindle Fire

It looks like retailer Carphone Warehouse is desperately phasing out its Kindle Fire inventory from its online unit. Being sold for just £89, it’s a perfect opportunity for anyone who wants to try an Amazon tablet and the rich content ecosystem that comes with it.

By comparison, Amazon UK sells the Kindle Fire tablet for £129. That’s £40 in savings! CPW also lists the Kindle Fire HD at lowered prices, £139 and £195 for the 16GB and 32GB models, whereas Amazon UK officially offers them for £159 and £199, respectively.

The Kindle Fire is a 7” tablet with 1024 x 600 resolution. It comes with a dual-core, 1.2GHz OMAP 4430 CPU and an 8GB internal storage that’s supplemented by a free cloud storage. Sure enough, the specs are downright outdated what with all the available full-fledged Android tablets equipped with quad-core processors and bigger screen resolutions. But starting at a measly £89, you can have a working tablet from Amazon. For a good comparison between two budget tablets, check out our Amazon New Kindle Fire vs Google Nexus 7 article.

    Two new Android tablets have been released in the past week from another Android tablet with both models offering strong performance and features and an impressive
    price — Ainol Electronics – which won runner-up for “Best Tablet of the Year” at CES 2012, launched the Novo 7 Venus Quad Core 16GB tablet — for £94 and one of the
    first sites they are available through is Tablet Sprint –

    The new Novo 7 Venus Quad Core 7 inch Tablet features a Quad Core processor, 1280×800 IPS screen, 16GB memory, a front webcam, Android O/S and Google Play Store preinstalled… all of which are found on the popular Nexus 7 — while also offering a number of features the Nexus 7 doesn’t – including a 2-megapixel rear camera, a MicroSD memory card slot, and an HDMI 1080p port; plus more ways to connect to the internet, including Ethernet as well as 3G/4G-

    The Novo 9 Spark for £168 is also released this week — compares to the iPad and features a Quad Core processor/1.5 Ghz/2GB, and a 9.7 inch 2048×1536 (Retina) screen – along with a strong 10,000 mAh battery, 32GB Memory, Android 4.1 O/S Jelly Bean, MicroSD memory card slot, the new high end 4K Digital HDMI, a 2 MP Front webcam and a 5 Megapixel Rear Camera with AF and Flash.

    It should be interesting to see how the new Novo Series fares in 2013 as this company gains more presence in the tablet market. The site Tablet Sprint also currently offers a promotion with £25 in bonus software Apps with all tablets.
