Default Best piece of tech I have EVER bought $30 on sale today

Amazon Fire 7" 8GB WiFi Tablet for $30 w/ Prime + free shipping

Fire 7 - Amazon Official Site - 7" Tablet Our best selling tablet - now even better.

I've been buying computer equipment since the late 70's. 30+ yrs experience PC repair/ software design This is the current, latest Amazon Google OS. I've tried every piece of tech out there.

I use this daily as an E-book reader, for Email, Comcast streaming, MP3 player, poor cameras, 6 hours of MLB.TV streaming battery life, 7 hours book reading, easy to transfer pics, music, video. Uses a special app store more limited than Google store, speaker fair, (there are ways to get around these) add SD storage. Decent screen, ok use outside for books. No phone capabilities but does everything else.

(ask a question if interested!)

Kindles are very good for the price. But, if you want a real Android tablet, you need a Samsung or similar. The basic problem with a Kindle is that Amazon blocks many of the Android apps that you may want to install. It is not a true Android tablet. But, if you just want a limited use tablet, Kindles are a good deal.

It is not a Kindle. There are not too difficult ways to get the full Google Store on it. = Real Android Tablet for $30 ?????

Sale ends in 33h 20m 00s

The Amazon Store has many of the same apps available. Plus you can always DL the .apk and install manually.
