wowza!
Cheers, got one!
ridiculously price for a decent tablet, shame I don't need one!
Same price at Tesco with Clubcard Boost
Forget it's short comings, at this price with a 2 year warranty, you can't go wrong.
Virtually giving it away, although I still prefer the Lenovo 8" for £50 from Argos (when they were in stock).
This or the Lenovo 8" from Argos?
Are we being to eager?? No one knows for sure what price Amazon will do these and the to sticks for tomorrow. I'm thinking surely it can't be cheaper than this, but what if?? I'm so tempted now, have it in my basket with tv stick ready to check out with John Lewis!!!
Amazon have for £34.99.

Hmmm, im thinking that too. What do you think it will go down to IF it goes down at all?

Thank you. That's the mother-in-law's Chrimbo sorted. Absolute bargain.

Should be an app to be able to and as long as connected to wifi though could use internet explorer if no app.
Anyone know if i can use the Bluetooth on this to connect to my car? Want to use it for music

Yes, Youtube plays fine on this.
This of the Lenovo A8 which I bought yesterday for £49.99 from Argos (as yet unopened).

Which would represent the best value for money and overall better machine?

Thanks in advance guys.

I just go via the browser (Silk) which is the standard browser on this.
cheers, Ive just moved to prime recently, so this should be great as a cheap media player on the road. Also takes microSD so i can load it up with mp4
Great got one

nice price.
ordered one for moms christmas since she has been wanting an ipad since summer. will be her first tablet so sems like a good starting point. concerned she has an android phone and this is different os, will it be too confusing? she doesnt really even have the hang of the phone lol
Oos!
Bought it yesterday before black Friday. I guess that is the way to go as i can't see much deals around which are not normally on deals when it is not black Friday
I know its only £35 but the resolution really should be 800 wide, 600 is not good enough. On that basis i think the Linx 7 for £40 is better.

Was OOS a few hours ago then stocked up again, now OOS again! Does anyone know if this, like the one from Amazon, also comes with adverts on the homescreen?
I need a digital photo frame and they are all more expensive than this despite having poor resolution screens. I know it sounds overkill, but has anyone tried using one for that purpose?

I like your style! I'm sure it would work really well for that. I can't see why it wouldn't, although Amazon might have the odd advert in your photos.

They were sold out of these in my local JL - but were taking orders at this price to be fulfilled when stock is available.
don't need.bought.
Played it in Currys today and I have to be honest, I was very unimpressed...

Poor screen, very basic looking and I think the Lenovo or Tesco 9" at £49.99 a piece, represent far better value for money...

Anyone else's thoughts?
Shame can't install apps from Google play... What can i do with a tablet without apps!!!
does it support miracast?
You can install 1Mobile on a Kindle, which gives you access to the vast majority of apps on the Play Store.

The main apps you'll not be able to get are those that need Google Play Services to work, ie Gmail, Drive, and some others.

I have the Kindle Fire HDX, and my son has the 8.9 Fire HDX. I've just got him this for his mum's house. They're nice pieces of kit and you get a lot for your money. I am an Amazon fan boy, which obviously influences me - I like that all of my pictures are available on all devices (have Fire TV, too), and that my son can access his apps/TV/Movies on all devices.

Something that I like on Kindles is 'Amazon Underground' - Paid for apps for completely free, including in-app purchases. This is brilliant for children. None of this free-app-but-costs-50-quid-to-get-anywhere nonsense. Granted there's limited choice, but it does give some good breathing space for parents who want to let their kids play lots of games, without breaking the bank.

This tablet is good value for money. There are better spec tablets out there (for a bit more cash), but if you buy in to the Amazon ecosystem then this is spot on.
O deer just bougt ,bet I do need it
Being new to amazon fire and android for that matter, does Amazon block certain apps or the play store in general? What do techies do with these tabs? Can you root them? Put standard Android ROM?

Except she used an iPad once got excited and wanted One. I'm not paying crazy Mony for an iPad when she will barely make use of the features. I told her from the off she will get an affordable tablet . I'm well aware the specs do not compare I'm not an idiot.
oos in JL
was meant to be available for delivery after 2pm today from my local JL (ordered 7am yesterday) but got an email saying will be late (probably tomorrow) anyone had anything similar?
