Even though we’re still more than 24 hours away from the Prime Day madness and Amazon’s checklist of early offers obtainable proper now could be removed from extensive or impressive in any approach, followers of extremely-affordable Android-based tablets should waste no time and pull the trigger as quickly as possible on a heavily discounted Fire HD 8 at Woot.
The e-commerce giant’s daughter company is promoting the newest generation of the popular 8-inch, commercially launched last year, at a brand new all-time low value of $39.99 in a 32GB configuration. That is considerably lower than the $109.99 list price of this 32 gig variant, and though the slate has been on sale plenty of occasions in recent months, it never received anywhere close to this loopy cheap point.
After all, there is a “catch”, as you will have to make do with pre-owned Fire HD 8 units to score the aforementioned discount of 70 full bucks. Technically listed as “refurbished”, the substantially marked-down devices will be shipped (for free for Amazon Prime members) in boxes featuring the “used-good” inscription. That essentially means their cosmetic condition is good but not nice, exhibiting “minor blemishes” after being returned by their unique homeowners, professionally inspected, and restored to full working order by authorized Amazon technicians.
Repackaged in a brown box and backed by a 90-day warranty, these are not somewhat as good as new, however pretty darn close. At 40 bucks, they have a whole lot going for them, from a relatively sharp 1280 x 800 pix res display to a quad-core processor, 1.5GB RAM, expandable storage, stellar battery life (as much as a whopping 10 hours of mixed-use), and dual stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos audio enhancements.
Sadly, solely the black model continues to be out there on the time of this writing, and though the lightning deal is technically set to run till midnight, one thing tells us Woot’s stock will be all depleted earlier than that.
