[Amazon Canada] Amazon Fire HD 8 $20 off

Just saw amazon fire HD 8" 16g on sale for 20 dollars off making it $79. Seems like a pretty good deal.

What's better? Fire 8 at 80$ or Fire 7 at 50$. The only difference I see is size and stereo speakers. Not really sure if that's worth 30$ more. Capacity is a bit higher, but 8 gb is negligible since I'm getting an SD card with it also.

Just saw this too. Great deal for someone like me who occasionally wants a tablet for convenience but not anywhere near willing to spend a fortune.

Note that you'll probably want to go through the modest hassle of installing Google play store and installing or sideloading YouTube.
In the US, it comes in two versions: "with special offers" (meaning it shows you ads on lock screen/notifications) and without. Assuming this is without, at ~$65 USD, this might be the best price in either country, ever.

What's the OS for the amazon fire?
Amazon's own modified version of Android. Comes with Amazon's App store, not the Google Play store.

Still waiting for the HD 10
Me too but this is tempting.

I only hate that the tempered glass and case is so expensive. I guess i better start looking on aliexpress now.

does your nova launcher really work? everytime i hit home it goes back to amazon desktop and forces reloading of nova... read through some forums and seems thats the best it can do. Wouldn't call that no issue
Also not understanding all the praise with the speaker... its nowhere near loud enough. Literally every single device I have in my house that outputs sound is louder than the HD8. I really wanna like it, especially for the price... and if the speakers were better I really would. But it doesn't have the power to be anything other than a good affordable media consumption device, yet that speaker is not useful anywhere outside of a completely silent environment.

Thanks OP! Bought one. Was looking for a cheap tablet to read ebooks on from my library. And I had a $10 giftcard. So $70 for an 8" tablet is great for me. Nothing even close.
