Earlier this week, we talked about the Amazon Kindle deals you can take advantage of ahead of Father’s Day – these included Kindle Fire tablets and Kindle e-readers alike. However, this new Father’s Day deal from Amazon allows buyers to get the Mayday button-sporting Kindle Fire HDX tablet in 7-inch form and the Fire TV for just $249.
Purchased a la carte, the Fire TV costs $99, while the base 7-inch Kindle Fire HDX is priced at $229; that adds up to $328, so you’re saving almost $80 in effect should you take advantage of this deal. It is, however, a limited-time deal, so if you’re considering this bundle for your dad as a Father’s Day present, be sure to act quickly, as it’s not sure how much longer the bundle will be on sale, or how quickly stock will run out.
The Amazon Fire TV is, like the Apple TV, a set-top box and not an actual television set; the device allows users to stream videos on their HDTV sets. For this device, users can watch more than 40,000 Amazon Prime Instant Videos, as well as play a number of casual games as an added selling feature.
The Kindle Fire HDX, as a refresher of its basics, includes a 7-inch display with 1920 x 1200 Full HD resolution, a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2 GB RAM, Amazon Fire OS out of the box, support for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and microUSB 2.0, and, of course, the vaunted Mayday button for instant customer service via video chat.
