With Prime Day 2020 winding down, there isn’t much more time to take advantage of Amazon’s deals. While there are deals on iPads today, what if you don’t want to spend over $200 on a tablet? The Fire HD 10 Tablet is a fraction of the iPad Mini’s cost and does many of the same things. Today, you can get the newest Fire Tablet for just $95 — that’s a savings of $70 — and it will keep up with all of your tasks just as well as the iPad Mini.

If you’re on the lookout for budget-friendly options, you can check out the Black Friday tablet deals.

The black Fire HD 10 Tablet on sale today for Prime Day has 32GB of memory, Wi-Fi, and the new 2.0 GHz octa-core processor with 2GB of RAM. The 10.1-inch display is 1080p Full HD, so your movies and photos will be displayed beautifully. The enhanced Wi-Fi allows you to play games, stream, and surf all at the same time without anything slowing down. With up to 12 hours of battery life, you can enjoy downloaded content on the go. Keep in mind that the iPad Mini only offers up to 1o hours of battery life.

The Fire HD 10 Tablet features Alexa and connects you to information and content with only your voice. It’s perfect for use in the kitchen when you need to check a recipe or answer a call with dirty hands. Simply say, “Alexa,” and the tablet will respond even when the screen is asleep. It also features Amazon Kids, which lets parents create profiles for their kids that set screen time, educational goals, and manage content — and it’s free on all Fire tablets.

With Amazon Prime Day coming to an end at midnight today, decision time is fast approaching if you are looking for a tablet to buy. For a fraction of the iPad Mini cost, the Fire HD 10 Tablet is an excellent option for a fast and functional device.
