A new rumor says that Amazon is working on a new $99 Kindle Fire HD to be released this year. Amazon denies it. Still, I can see a $99 Kindle Fire HD to be offered at least on Black Friday 2013.
There will be a new wave of Amazon Kindle tablets that will be released this fall. This is for sure. TechCrunch reported today that one of the new Kindle HD tablets would sell for $99. This would be amazing as we talk here about a solid performing tablet with state-of-the-art performance. The $99 Kindle Fire HD is supposed to run on a Ti CPU and the 7-inch screen has a 1,280x800px resolution.
The current 7-inch Kindle Fire HD sells for $199. Amazon would need to cut the price in half with the new model. It sounds to good to be true. And right after the TechCrunch report comes Amazon's statement that a $99 Kindle Fire HD is not happening according to Business Insider. And this might be true as cutting the price in half is really hard. What I can though imagine is that Amazon will offer the new 7-inch Kindle HD on Black Friday 2013 for $99 for a limited time.
Black Friday 2013 is on November 29. We will of course have again extensive coverage of Black Friday 2013 ads and deals starting early November.
