Hey, it’s your friendly KF on KND Editor April L. Hamilton here, to share an incredible Gold Box Deal of the Day: TODAY ONLY (12/8/14), Amazon’s offering all Kindle Fire HDX 7″ tablets at 50% Off, but only while supplies last!
I wanted to chime in here personally to say that while these are the 2013 models, even though I have one of the new Fire HD6 models and love it for on-the-go reading and listening to music or audiobooks, I still use and love my 2013 Kindle Fire HDX for playing highly detailed game apps (like Simpsons Tapped Out) and watching videos.
The 2014 models have a newer chipset, upgraded Dolby audio and an upgraded display, but I’m in the habit of switching back and forth between my Kindle Fire HDX and Fire HD6 and don’t notice any dramatic differences—other than the slightly smaller display screen on my HD6.
Remember: the HDXs are the top of the line 2013 models and they have the same software update as the 2014 models recently received, too. Note that the 2013 HDX is compatible with the new, free Fire TV app as well. If you’ve been on the fence about trading in a first-generation Kindle Fire for a newer model, this a great opportunity to get one at HALF OFF!
