Thinking of getting yourself or a friend a new tablet for Christmas? Well be sure to check out the deals over at Amazon as they have the Kindle, Kindle Fire HD, and the Kindle Fire HDX all on sale just in time for the holiday gift giving season.
Just like other retailers that are trying to take advantage of people going out to buy a lot of things for Christmas Amazon is offering really great discounts on some of their electronics. You can find as much as 20% or more on select items. Lets look at the three Kindles on sale now.
The Kindle is the tablet that would be perfect for reading as it holds up to 1,400 ebooks. You get free cloud storage from Amazon to house all of your Amazon content. The Kindle is only 6 inches and includes about 2GB of internal memory. Battery life for this machine is a hard one to figure. We have seen and heard up to two month on a single charge.
We would have to say that battery life in general for the Kindles are going to depend on a lot such as device settings and how you use it individually. To get two months people have quote not using the wireess and just using it 30 minutes per day. It also comes with the E Ink Pearl display.
Kindle Fire HD
