Kindle Fire HDX Drops to $184 in One-Day Sale


Missed last week’s surge of Cyber Monday tech deals? You can still save big on an Amazon Kindle HDX if you act quick. For today only, the online superstore is selling the 7-inch, 16GB version of its $229 flagship tablet for just $183. 

With a fast Snapdragon processor, strong battery life and massive content library, the HDX is one of our favorite tablets of the year. We were impressed with its sharp 1920 x 1200-pixel screen in our review, and the innovative Mayday feature allowed us to enjoy live tech support with the press of a button.

Today might be the only day to nab a 7-inch HDX for $183 on Amazon, but the online retailer is offering savings all throughout the holiday rush.
