Amazon is reducing the investment cost of the Kindle Fire HD 7 and 8.9 tablets for Father’s Day. You can now get a $20.00 savings on both models by using the coupon code DADSFIRE at checkout.
The Amazon Kindle Fire HD 7 features a seven inch IPS display with 1,280 x 800 pixels. It offers an amazing viewing experience and the ability to watch 720p movies right on the unit. Underneath the hood is a 1.2GHz dual-core TI OMAP4460 processor and 1 GB of RAM, which makes accessing media, books, and other content very fast and easy. Meanwhile, the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 features the highest resolution touchscreen display panel Amazon has ever produced. You are looking at a very respectable 1920 × 1200 pixels, compared to the 1280 × 800 showcased in the Kindle Fire HD 7. The enhanced colors really make more graphic-heavy content very vibrant.
The big hyping factors behind these two devices are the Surround Sound speakers, which gives you the best sound experience ever found on a tablet. Freetime is also a solid program that lets you limit the amount of things your child can do with the tablet. For example, you can set the web-browsing, gaming, and reading sessions. This way, you do not have to take the tablet away from them, you can merely establish how much time they can play games, before the tablet shuts the games down.
