The Amazon Fire HD 8 is one of the best tablets you can get for $80… and it’s an even better bargain at $50, which is how much Amazon is selling the tablet for today.
That price gets you a tablet with an 8 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display, 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a quad-core processor, a microSD card slot, front and rear cameras, up to 12 hours of battery life, and Amazon’s Fire OS software.
It’s also a relatively hackable tablet that you can tweak to run the Google Play Store and other software not available through Amazon’s Appstore.
Note that Amazon’s $50 price is for a model with “special offers” including ads on the lock screen. You can pay a bit extra to remove them. There’s also an option to spend $80 and up if you’d prefer a tablet with 32GB of built-in storage.
