Customers shopping for a good tablet could pick up the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 at the price of $139 through Amazon.
The online retailer is offering this special promotion for one day only so those interested in purchasing the slate should move fast. The device is a certified refurbished model which means it may have been broken and repaired when it was sent back to the company.
This is a 30 percent discount from the Kindle Fire HD's regular price and takes $60 off the top.
This model was released before the current HDX version. Even though it's a bit old, it still packs some pretty impressive specs for a tablet device. The Kindle Fire line runs a heavily customized version of Android software, however, custom ROMs can be used to make it more of a pure Android tablet.
Amazon unveiled the Kindle Fire HD 7 and 8.9 at a press conference towards the end of 2012.
This device is the successor to the original Kindle Fire tablet and sports an 8.9-inch screen with 1920 x 1200 pixels resolution and 254 PPI. The Kindle Fire HD is also be capable of in-plane switch and Amazon promises that it is 40 percent faster than the original thanks to its 1.5GHz TI OMAP 4470 processor.
The 7-inch version is slightly less powerful with a display that has a 1280 x 800 resolution and a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor. It also features an efficient MIMO antenna and Dolby Digital, which brings a dual speaker system as opposed to the singular speaker found on the iPad. The Kindle Fire HD battery lasts longer and the tablet starts with 1GB RAM.
