The first generation Amazon Kindle Fire may be well over a year old at this point, but it’s still a pretty good little tablet, featuring a 7 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, a TI OMAP 4 dual core processor, 512MB of RAM, and Amazon’s custom version of Android 2.3
It’s also a pretty hacker-friendly device, and we’ve seen unofficially builds of every version of Android ported to the tablet — including Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
While new Kindle Fire 2 tablets have starting prices of $159, you can pick up a refurbished 1st-generation Kindle for just $96.
For even less money you could get a Kobo Vox tablet today… but I wouldn’t. It has a lousy display and the build quality isn’t as good.
