A tablet can make one of the best Valentine’s Day gifts, and Amazon makes some of the most affordable ones (compare and contrast with these tablet deals). Right now, at Amazon, you can score the 8-inch Fire HD 8 tablet, with 32 GB. It’s down to $65, a significant drop from its regular price of $90. Give that special someone what they really want this year — A tablet opens up a world of apps, browsing, and content, for way less.
Some great news; now that so many of us are spending so much time on Zoom and other video chatting apps, The Fire HD8 has front and rear 2MP cameras for 720p HD video recording (and pics, too). This is not only great news for chatting to friends and family, or for work calls, but you’ll know you can record great video whenever you want. There’s a built-in microphone, and this tablet comes with dual-band Wi-Fi support, not to mention Dolby Atmos audio with stereo speakers — so all your recorded content, and other videos, will look and sound amazing.
But this tablet has so many other uses; they’re inexhaustible. The Fire HD 8 opens up an entire world of e-books and audiobooks (and because it’s an Amazon product, you’ll have easy access to their selections, as well as access to Audible). And there’s also access to all the great content that you’d find through other tablets, like streaming music, and video from Amazon Prime, as well as Netflix, HBO Max, Disney+, and all your favorite streamers. The Fire HD 8 also connects you with your social media accounts, as well as web browsing, email, and more — it’s got many of the features we’ve come to expect from the best tablets.
And of course, like all the best Amazon products, this tablet has built-in Alexa, so your access can be touchless. This is especially helpful when you want to use Fire HD 8’s Show mode. It’s like having an Amazon Echo built in. Using Show Mode, you can watch the live feed from your Alexa-compatible security cameras or Ring Doorbell (and communicate via two-way-audio), as well as manage your smart home, from temperature control to smart lights. How awesome is that? There’s even Game Mode for maximum enjoyment while gaming, as well as USB-C for faster charging.
Who wouldn’t want this amazing tablet for Valentine’s Day? It’s an e-reader, content center, and smart home hub all in one. Other tablets can cost upward of $800. Right now, at Amazon, the Fire HD 8 is only $65. Act now, just in time for Valentine’s Day, and you can getfrom its regular price of $90. What are you waiting for?
