Amazon tablet deals: Fire HD tablets get steep discounts for Father’s Day

Apple’s iPad may still be at the top of the tablet game, but there’s an array of Android tablet offerings on the market from brands like Amazon, Samsung, and others. Father’s Day is around the corner and if you’re especially attracted to all the accoutrements that come with Amazon’s ecosystem, the Fire HD tablet series may be a great gift option. Right now, Amazon is offering its Fire HD 8 for just $60, and its premium Fire HD 10 for just $120. Those scorching prices aren’t likely to last long, so head to Amazon and score yours now before these deals go up in smoke.

The Alexa audio assistant has evolved immensely in the four years since its release, and it stands out as a strong selling point for the entire Fire HD tablet series. With Alexa on the Fire HD 8 and Fire HD 10, you can gain quick, hands-free access to a host of information and entertainment, from songs to videos to games and more. Find the best Android apps, in the app store. Check traffic or weather reports, personal calendars, to-do lists, and more in an instant. The adaptable Alexa is also able to control compatible smart home devices like cameras, lights, and thermostats. All told, there’s not too much Alexa can’t do on the Amazon Fire HD, and she’s a big reason why they’ve become one of the industry’s top tablets.
