▸ The price cut that high may be Amazon’s response to the upcoming launch of the 8.3-inch Apple iPad mini 6, which is rumored to be revealed on September 14. The entry price of Apple’s medium-shelf tablet will be at least $400. At the same time, the prices of the earlier iPad mini 5 are constantly going down, with renewed devices dropping by even $80 on Amazon.

▸ Amazon Fire HD 8 was launched in June 2020. It sports the horizontal-first design, 30% faster performance, twice the storage expandable up to 1 TB, 2 MP front camera with 720p HD video recording, and USB-C connector for faster charging and data exchange. You can choose between 32 or 64 GB of internal memory.

▸ A premium variant of the 8-inch Amazon tablet – Fire HD 8 Plus – is also on sale. The $30 discount constitutes 27% of the regular price – the deal price is $79.99 instead of $109.99 for a variant with 32 GB and ads. The device is compatible with the Wireless Charging Dock, and you can get the 32 GB bundle for just $120.

▸ Wireless Charging Dock eliminates the need to plug in your Fire every time you want to charge it. Just place your tablet in the dock, and it will start charging automatically.

▸ Kindle devices are also on sale, with the highest price drop on the basic model – check out all deals in the Device Deals on Amazon.
