while I had to be away. Here is the banner information -- the actual links are below the Amazon alerts here:
The discounts start with the 7" HD model and include the 8.9" HDX.
Prices shown below are for models with 'special offers' on the lockscreen and represent models with increasing storage capacity:
* New Kindle Fire HD 7" 2nd Gen -
* Kindle Fire HDX 7" -
* Kindle Fire HDX 8.9" -
NOTE: The lower-cost HD 7" 2nd Gen tablet shows an 8GB option. YOU SHOULDN'T CHOOSE THAT - especially with only a $10 difference in pricing during the sale. 8 GB is just not enough. You'd be swapping out apps all the time to get space since that 8GB includes system files with barely 5 GB for apps, videos and books.
The Kindle Fire HDX 7" with 64GB of memory/storage is the best deal on the smaller tablet.

ONE caveat and a recommendation: For the Kindle Fire tablets, I tend to recommend the 32GB model, as people tend to get more and more apps, and some are sophisticated games, which take a lot of storage space.
The 64GB model, though, is only $20 more (at $259) with the current discount.
During the Father's Day sale, that 64GB model (normally $309) was on sale for $279.
With smaller-storage or memory models, the Cloud (Amazon's server space for our content) will serve as a personal apps "library" (as with books) and you can swap apps back to the server and to your tablet, watching
the remaining current storage apace more.
The Kindle books situation with Big 5 participants
Thursday night I want to get on the Hachette and now Simon and Schuster e-book negotiations situation and Apple's negotiated settlement to refund about $400,000,000 to millions of customers if their appeal, now in the Second Circuit in New York, fails (it'll take a year or more to decide). So, the e-book pricing wars continue.
