Promo code FIREHD89 knocks $50 off Wi-Fi and 4G Kindles
Amazon is running a one-day sale on the 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HD, with customers able to save $50 on the new device. Customers can take advantage of the deal by going to Amazon.com and entering the promotional code FIREHD89 at checkout. The deal covers both the Wi-Fi only and 4G models of the 8.9-inch Kindle Fire.
Introduced earlier this year to compete more directly with Apple's iPad, the Kindle Fire 8.9 has an OMAP4470 processor, which Amazon claims outperforms the Tegra 3. Its 8.9-inch screen outputs at 1920x1200, with a pixel density of 254ppi. It also features a true-wide polarizing filter, allowing users to see the full spectrum of color from all angles. The 4G LTE version of the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 retails without discount for $499 for the 32GB model and $599 for the 64GB model.
