Amazon slashes price of new Fire HDX 8.9 tablet by 30 percent Amazon has dumped the price of their new Fire HDX 8.9 tablet, giving consumers a chance to get the device at 30 percent off.
The 32GB/Wi-Fi model is selling for $300 today, down from $430. If you need cellular data and more storage, the 64GB/LTE model is down to $414 from $594, a pretty decent deal given the specs.

Amazon's tablet has an 8.9" "HDX" display with 2560x1600 resolution, a 2.5GHz quad-core processor, 2GB RAM and an Adreno 420 GPU for smoother gaming and video playback.

In addition, Amazon has added free one-day shipping for all buyers of the tablets for the next day, ensuring you can get it by Christmas.

I got a Kindle Fire HDX 7" Tablet for Christmas. What a turd these are. Just read the revues. All those people can't be wrong. Don't suppose the Fire HDX 8.9 tablet is any different with the lowering of the price. The Amazon Fire TV was a big flop too. Back to the drawing board Amazon!

They are kinda crappy, UNTIL you root 'em. Then, they're pretty good.
