If you haven't already succumbed to the dark side and picked up an iPad
, there's an awesome deal to be had on the Android
side of the tracks. For today only (and there's less than 10 hours remaining on this), Amazon
is selling refurbished Kindle Fire
tablets for $139 with free shipping. That's $60 off the cost of a new Kindle Fire, and while it's refurbished, you won't receive a janky device from a sketchy seller.
This is being sold and shipped via Amazon Warehouse Deals, not some third-party seller. And as for the condition, Amazon states that these pre-owned devices have been "refurbished, tested, and certified to look and work like new." They're also backed by the same one-year warranty that accompany new Kindle Fire tablets, and come with the same free month of Amazon Prime membership. In other words, if you're been thinking about a Kindle Fire (and you check out our in-depth review here

In related news, a report from the China Economic News Service suggests that Amazon is prepping a trio of new Kindle Fire tablets, including an entry-level 7-inch model with a 1024x600 screen resolution, a mid-range 7-inch build with a 1280x800 resolution, and a higher end 8.9-inch SKU sporting a Full HD 1920x1200 resolution. Prices and release dates for these new models are not yet known, nor have they been confirmed by Amazon.
