Before the holidays we’ve talked a great deal about the Kindle Fire HD, as well as the Google Nexus 7 and the iPad Mini. We’ve tried to cover pretty much every facet of these three tablets in order to figure out which one is better and we’ve pretty much came to the conclusion that the Amazon slate is better for you if you really want to own a multimedia tablet, the Google 7-incher is best if you want a pure Android experience and an all-rounder, and lastly, the iPad Mini is the best choice if… well let me think for a bit… If you want a more affordable (or should I say less expensive ?) way to access the Apple ecosystem on a 7.9 inch screen.
We’re now making our first steps into year 2013 and in case you still haven’t purchased either one of these tablets then you might be interested in the larger Kindle Fire HD 8.9 instead, and here’s why:
Kindle Fire HD 8.9 Deal
As you all know by now, Amazon has not only launched a 7-incher this year, but it also released a better equipped 8.9 inch slate as well. The Kindle Fire HD 8.9 is Amazon’s full HD tablet, arriving with a 1920 x 1200 screen resolution and a pixel density of 254 ppi which comes close to the amount of 264 ppi offered by the recently released full-sized iPad.
But we’re not here to talk specs, we’re here to tell you that if you’re a student and if you’re a member of Amazon Prime you can benefit from a $50 price reduction for the 8.9 incher. That being said, throughout the entirety of January you’ll be able to buy the 16 or 32 GB WiFi-Only models for only $249 or $319 respectively.
The same $50 price reduction is also available for the 4G LTE-enabled Kindle Fire HD 8.9 so if you were to pick up the 32 GB model it would set you back $449, whereas the 64 GB tablet would come with a price tag of $549.
