The Amazon Fire Tablet price proves you don’t have to pay a lot of money for a cheap tablet with Amazon Prime Day 2017 right around the corner. How much does it cost? Let’s break it down across the US, UK and Australia.
It’s an affordable tablet that spans five models, including two made just for kids: Amazon Fire 7, Amazon Fire HD 8, Amazon Fire HD 10, Amazon Fire 7 Kids Edition and Amazon Fire HD 8 Kids Edition.
The resolution of the Fire Tablet pales in comparison to high-end tablets like the iPad Pro, but premium isn’t what Amazon’s tablet line is all about. Instead, the Fire Tablet family delivers good battery life and solid functionality at an almost-unbeatable price, and there’s a tablet for just about every kind of user.
Here’s how the Amazon Fire Tablet price stacks up across regions, though we suggest setting a reminder for July 11 as we expect some great Fire Tablet deals to bubble up on Amazon Prime Day.
Amazon Fire 7 price
As the name suggests, the Amazon Fire 7 features a 7-inch screen, about eight hours of battery life and Amazon’s Alexa digital assistant. It doesn’t have the sharpest or brightest screen on the market, but the Fire 7 offers capable media playing powers and should be especially useful to Amazon Prime members.
The Amazon Fire 7 price in the US starts at $49.99 with Special Offers, which are ads that appear on the tablet’s lock screen. The Amazon Fire 7 price without Special Offers starts at $64.99.
The Amazon Fire 7 price in the UK starts at £49.99 with ads, and the model without ads starts at £59.99.
The Amazon Fire 7 is not on sale directly through Amazon in Australia, but the suggested retail price for the older Amazon Fire HD 7 in the country is AU$179 while the Amazon Fire HD 6 price is suggested at AU$149. Check out our guide on how to safely buy tech from Amazon in Australia.
