Apple’s iPad Air has been mocked by both Nokia and Microsoft recently with comparative ads and now Amazon joins the chain-yanking campaign with a commercial of its own pitting the iOS-based 9.7-incher against the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9.
In addition to offering almost unusual savings on next-gen games for both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Amazon has a couple of Cyber Monday treats for hardware buyers too, slashing the prices of two Kindle Fire tablets.
Just as the tech world was on the verge of completely forgetting about Amazon’s Kindle Fire HDX 8.9, formally introduced back in September, the amazingly cheap tablet has started shipping.
@evleaks has tweeted an image of what could be the entry-level model in Amazon’s new Kindle lineup.
Remember that report starring Amazon’s next line of Kindle Fire tablets which claimed at least two of these were to be powered by Qualcomm’s quad-core Snapdragon 800 chip? Though unconfirmed, it had a distinct whiff of credibility and to this day it’s yet to be debunked.
So you think the new Nexus 7 is impressive, huh? After all, it sports a super-crisp display, runs the latest Android version, packs 2 GB RAM and weighs an incredible 290 grams. Plus, it’s dirt-cheap. But how about you hold off for a couple months before deciding to buy or skip it?
