Kindle Fire HD Limited Time Deal

Quick DaddyDeal for you — Amazon is selling the Kindle Fire HD for $159, $40 less than the regular price of $199. (We did the math for you. We’re nice that way.)

For the uninitiated, the Amazon Kindle Fire is a 7-inch color tablet. It runs Android. It is not an iPad. It is, however, less expensive, even when it is selling for its regular price of $199 rather than this $159 deal.

Usually $159 gets you the regular Kindle Fire, which has a lower-resolution screen (1024 x 600). The Kindle Fire HD has a higher-resolution screen (1280×800) — hence the HD in the name. More pixels means better image quality, nicer-looking videos and easier to read text. The Fire HD also has better audio, better wi-fi, and more internal storage than the regular Fire, sayeth Amazon. All of these are good things. Getting them for $40 less than you usually would is even better.

Gearheads / Android fans might find this little tidbit intriguing:

System Requirements None. Kindle Fire HD is ready to use right out of the box – no setup, no software to install, no computer required to download content

“System Requirements: None.” When was the last time you saw those three words together?

If you are a member of Amazon Prime (try it free for 30 days, no obligation) you get access to Amazon’s video library (think Netflix) as well as the ability to borrow books for free, which is cool.

Nothing against the iPad. We have one… OK, two, one is for the kids… and we love it. That said, $159 is a damn good deal.

No idea how long the deal will last, caveat shopper, disclaimers, your mileage may vary, the price may change… you know the drill. We saw this deal and wanted to share it with you. Because we’re super nice.

Now, a confession. Every time we hear the words Kindle Fire, we think of the Jimi Hendrix song “Fire.” (“Let me have your Kindle Fire…” etc.) This is known as “Weird Al Syndrome” — virtually any sequence of words can become a song parody. In this case, the Syndrome results in you getting to see this video of Jimi Hendrix performing “Fire” at the Fillmore East in 1969. Which is a very, very good thing.

Now go get a Kindle Fire HD on sale before the deal disappears!
