Amazon launches Fire HD 8 Reader's Edition tablet
Advertised as "the best tablet for reading," the Fire HD 8 Reader's Edition brings together three key elements in a single package, namely the all-new Fire HD 8 tablet, one year of Kindle Unlimited that provides access to more than one million e-books, as well as a limited edition leather cover.
The latest Fire HD tablet to hit the market has an 8-inch display with 1,280X800 pixels, a quad-core processor with speeds up to 1.5 GHz, 8 GB internal storage and microSD slot for up to 128 GB of additional space. The slate also has a front-facing HD camera and a 5 MP image snapper on the back. While these are regular mid-range specs for an Android tablet, the Fire HD 8 Reader's Edition takes full advantage of Amazon's Fire OS special features and includes Blue Shade - "an innovative new feature that adjusts and optimizes the display on your Fire HD 8 tablet to reduce blue light exposure before bedtime."
The price of the bundle is $349.86 USD when its parts are purchased separately, but now the Fire HD 8 Reader's Edition can be pre-ordered for $249.99 USD (with free shipping). The individual prices are $149.99 USD for the tablet, $79.99 USD for the leather case while the 12-month Kindle Unlimited membership can be acquired for $119.88 USD. The Fire HD 8 Reader's Edition also includes free, unlimited cloud storage for all Amazon content. Shipments begin tomorrow.
