Amazon is running a sale on all of its Fire tablets, most of its Echo smart speakers and displays, and a grab bag of other items including the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K and the Anker Nebula Fire TV Edition sound bar.

Amazon Fire HD 8 Plus

You can save up to $60 off the list price of Amazon’s already-pretty-cheap tablets. And while the tablets ship with Amazon’s custom Fire OS software, it’s pretty easy to install the Google Play Store on tablets.

Check out Liliputing’s guides for installing Google Play on the current-gen Fire HD 8 and the Fire HD 10 for more details – the guides are basically interchangeable, but I chose to focus on a different method for each article.

The latest version of the Fire Toolbox utility mentioned in both articles adds a few new features for sideloading apps that aren’t available in the Play Store, among other things.

Now on to the latest deals:

  1. I’ve had the 7, 8 and 10 inch Fire tablets. For me, the 7 inch screen was just too small. I think it’s worth the extra $20 for the 8 inch to get the larger screen, twice as much RAM, more storage and stereo sound. But still, the 7 inch fire tablet is better than most other 7 inch Android tablets in this price range. I also think the Kid Proof case is worth the extra cost if you can get it on sale. The aftermarket cases for the Fire tablets just don’t seem to fit right.
