AT&T tries to sweeten the Fire Phone, offers buyers a Kindle Fire HDX for $50

Kindle Fire HDX back angle
AT&T has widened its deal with Amazon, progressing from selling the Fire Phone to also pushing one of the firm’s tablets. The model in question is the Kindle Fire HDX 7-inch, and the network is offering you a variety of ways to purchase the device.

If you can’t wait to become fully integrated into Amazon’s mobile ecosystem, then the first deal will be exactly what you’re after. The Kindle Fire HDX 7-inch tablet costs $50 when it’s purchased alongside an Amazon Fire Phone on a two-year contract. Coincidentally, the Fire Phone’s price was recently discounted in price from an outrageous $200, to a bargain, basement price of $1. It’s absolutely not a blatant deal sweetener to try and shift the unwanted Fire Phone — no, not at all.

Alternatively, if you’d rather avoid the Fire Phone and just take the tablet, AT&T will sell it to you for $100, provided you sign a two-year airtime agreement. Finally, you can take it away for free and then pay AT&T $10 per month. There’s no contract with this option, but you will pay for any network usage separately.

Amazon’s Fire HDX tablet has a 7-inch display with a 1920 x 1200 pixel resolution, and is powered by a 2.2GHz quad-core processor. It runs Amazon’s own version of Android and comes with the Mayday helpline, plus access to all Amazon’s content — from books and films, to apps and magazines. At the time of writing, the 7-inch HDX tablet cost $180 directly through Amazon, with free shipping.

AT&T will have the Kindle Fire HDX 7-inch in stock from October 24 and the deals will be available both in stores and online.
