Valentines Day Deals on Fires and Kindles

az-valAmazon is offering discounts on select Kindles and Fires in their Valentine’s deals. There are discounts on the Fire HD 6, Kindle Paperwhite, basic Kindle with Touchscreen Display, and the Fire HD 6 Kids Edition.

It is worth noting that when I was logged in under my Prime member account, the page also showed offers for 5 monthly payments for the various devices. I didn’t see these when I was logged in on my other account.

The sale ends February 15, 2015.


New Kindles are confirmed and up for pre-order

kindle_voyageAmazon now has the new lines of Kindles and Kindle Fire tablets up for pre-order. I am still sorting through the info, but here are the links to learn more about the new models:

  • The new basic Kindle with touch screen. The price has also increased by $10 over the previous model.
  • The brand new Kindle Voyage, with improved screen resolution (300 ppi), an intelligent frontlight with brightness sensor and a physical page turn  method called “PagePress.”
  • The new Fire HD 6,  a slightly smaller, six inch tablet that will retail for only $99 (with special offers).
  • The new Fire HD 7, starting at $139 (with special offers).
  • The Fire HD Kids Edition, 6″ or 7″ HD Display,  with a blue kid-proof case, your choice of sizes, starting at $149.
  • The new Fire HDX 8.9, lighter and with a faster processor, starting at $379 (with special offers).

Amazon is also rolling out a new Fire OS called Sangria with new, updated features which include individual emails and profiles for family members. Both the Fires and the E-ink Kindles will also be getting a new feature  called Family Library which will allow family members to share books and videos on an account. This is a feature that I have personally wanted for a long time!

I’ll have more to come on the new devices and features! 🙂
