This is the Standard Definition model.
[*NOTE: The Kindle Fire Monday deal below
has ended.*] - Nov. 27, 2012.
The info below is mostly historical now but Amazon is continuing Cyber Monday Deals Week with other ongoing deals, though probably not at the hectic pace we saw Monday.
[Monday's blog entry]
To get the $30 off this U.S. model, you need to enter promotional code FIREDEAL at checkout, Amazon says, and again, the U.S. deal is only for Monday the 26.
The UK version of the Kindle Fire 2, normally £129 is £99 for a "Limited time only" and that's the shown pricing today on the UK product page, first seen on Black Friday in the UK. However, in bold lettering, the UK page says "Final Day" on the Christmas Deals page.
I normally would not recommend the non-HD version of Kindle Fire when the difference is only $40 or £30. But when it's a difference of $70 (U.S.) and £60 (UK), that's another story. The Freetime parental control comes with this model.
RAM was increased from 512 MB to 1 GB. Has 8 GB storage.
I actually heard about the three offers shown from my local TV News, including even that select Panasonic smart 3D LED HDTVs are shown today at up to 60% off.
The Amazon deals page says:
' The TC-L42ET5 42-inch TV is available for $599 (list price of $1,099.99), the TC-L47DT50 47-inch TV is available for $799 (list price of $1,899.99), and the TC-L55DT50 55-inch TV is available for $999 (list price of $2,499.99). All three models feature the VIERA Connect IPTV cloud service so that you can access apps such as Amazon Instant Video, hulu plus, Netflix, Facebook, Twitter, Skype, and more. TVs also feature an IPS LED panel that delivers an 178° viewing angle for clear, vibrant images from every seat in the room. Offer valid when shipped and sold by Amazon.com.
. . .
Offer good through 11:59 p.m. PST on November 26, 2012, while supplies last. Amazon reserves the right to change or terminate this promotion at any time. '
And, as you can see, their other special promo offers include things like (when I last looked a few minutes ago) "$40 Amazon.com promotional credit," one per customer, with the order of a Braun Series 7 shaver plus "an additional $15 off instantly" at checkout when clicking on the item and "clipping the coupon." The credit expires by January 31, 2013.
This particular promo-credit deal is on purchases before end of day, December 22, 2012, and the product pricing seems to change through the day.
For instance, the popular Canon S100 normally sold near its list price of $400 was $250 yesterday and is $300 today. Oddly, the Canon S95 which it replaced, has fewer megapixels and no optical zoom in video mode but has less noise-reduction and therefore a sharper image and is still selling at $400.
The Kindle Fire 2 was a natural 1-day discount to report, but the others might be of interest to some and the three are featured together on their Cyber Monday page today. If nothing else, interest in the holiday sales is thought to be good for the economy.
I certainly won't be doing reports on most of these sales -- but the Kindle Fire 2 price today is one that should interest some readers of this blog. And my local TV news is still at it with the Amazon sales just now again, so it's getting a lot of reporting outside of the Net.
