Earlier and sometimes still available
Fire Tablets for Year 2015 (US and UK)
Updated 9/19-10/1/2015
  New Fire tablets were announced Sept. 17, 2015
  The 6" Kindle HD from Yr 2014 remains.
  Gone are Yr 2014 7" and 8.9" and first "Kids" tablet models,
    replaced by the Yr 2015 lineup.

  As before, the new Fire tablet model "for kids" has strong parental controls and the same serious added features as the basic models but is built to be harder to break, carries a 2-year "no questions asked" warranty and includes a free year of Amazon FreeTime Unlimited with unlimited access to 10,000 books, videos, educational apps, and games.  Added for 2015 tablets is access to over 20,000 age-appropriate websites and YouTube videos.

  Added 10/1/15 that the Year 2014 Kindle Fire HDX 8.9" tablet (higher resolution and speed) remains available, and a note on THAT page links to the Year 2013 Kindle Fire HDX 8.9" tablet (higher resolution but less fast than Yr 2014 HDX) which is ALSO still available (the Year 2013 model is what I still have, and it's excellent, used daily by me for 2 years so far).
  These older models that are still offered are not on the header/banner, so it's hard to know if they're limited to the current stock or are still being produced due to being models with higher resolution and speed.
(UK: I've not looked that up, but you can use the OLDER Kindles table to check the pages for the older models.)

  1. Thanks for the post
    I want to know how can we use Kindle in the dark?

    1. Henry, that depends on which Kindle you get:
      1. An e-Ink Kindle without an internal light (you can use an attached light (accessory) or light from a lamp)
      2. An e-Ink Kindle with an internal light -- this is readable in the dark without any added effort
      3. A Fire tablet (these work best in the dark, with no added effort).


NOTE: TO AVOID SPAM being posted instantly, this blog uses the "DELAY" feature.

Am often away much of the day, and postings won't show up right away. Posts done to use referrer-links may never show up.

Usually, am online enough to release comments within a day though, so the hard-to-read match-text tests for commenting won't be needed this way.

Feedback and questions are welcome. Thanks for participating.

Technical Problems?
If you're having problems leaving a Comment, Google's blogger-help asks that you clear the '' cookies on your browser's Tools or Options menu bar and that will fix the Comment-box problems (until they have a permanent fix).

IF that doesn't work either, then UNcheck the "keep me signed in" box -- Google-help says that should allow your comment to post (it's a workaround to a current bug).
Apologies for the problems.

TIP: There's a size limit. If longer than 3500 characters or so, in a text editor, make two posts out of it.
