Featured deal: Save 37% on the Fire HD 10 tablet
The popular Amazon Fire HD 10 is seeing a nice dip in price right now — one that hasn’t been bettered since Black Friday weekend. The 32GB, ad-supported version (ads are shown on the tablet’s lock screen) is down to $94.99 ($55 off) while the deal lasts.
The Amazon Fire 10 HD includes a 10.1-inch 1920 x 1200 resolution IPS display, a quad-core 2.0GHz octa-core processor, and a battery that lasts up to 12 hours. It’s 30% faster than the previous generation, and it has a microSD card slot to add even more storage.
The Fire 10 HD uses the company’s Fire OS but you can use regular Android apps on the tablet as well. It also supports Alexa that will allow you to accomplish tasks like searching for videos or controlling your smart home with just your voice. You can choose from black, Marine Blue, and red colors.
