Nice find OP

Don't spend the extra cash to get it without ads, they usually take them off for free if you use their online webchat service

SIZE?

It's a 7 inch tablet.

if this tablet had a micro sd card slot i would buy it (i don't care what OS it came with,pure android or not) but sadly it does not have one so the HD screen for me is a waste of time & money.

Should get very hot. Well spotted OP

Was only looking at these this evening and comparing prices. Just ordered one thanks to this post. Thanks OP!

£119 for the 3G/4G 16gb.


Hot.

Extra £19.99 for 4G scorching

Was Going To Buy The Normal Kindle HD7 Earlier For £119 From Argos! Now Got The Better Version For Less THANK YOU!!

Very good price for 4g

How can you sell a tablet with adverts, that seems, well, really bleddy stupid.

Great price. Worth noting that it is the previous generation though.

Whats the main difference between this and the new generation?

from what I can see on the Internet the 7 inch version has not been replaced yet, only the 8.9 inch version but it is late and I'm sleepy and I may be wrong

Yes, I see that now. This is a better tablet actually than most of the others.

Snapdragon 800 tablet for 99 pounds. Wish i waited for this but got the nexus 7 on the sainsbury 99 pound deal.


Very hot.

If buying for a child - The one point of note to it - to download apps (even free ones) you have to put your Amazon account details in . According to the internet this "one-step-click" stays live , but my son made an account , then couldn`t get any free aps to download , I read up about it and then input my details , he downloaded the games he was after . I logged out , then he logged in and the downloading has stayed working .

To repeat the "Internet said" bit above , my Google searches said that details had to go in - don`t know if what I did is a workaround or what (or my son did something else as well) . I`ll gladly be correctly informed on this (ie mine works , so apart from this note , I`m not sweating any more work into finding out) .

Hudl 2.

Hudl2...It's awesome especially using Nova launcher to hid all the Tesco add ons

I am leaning that way, but this is a more powerful piece of kit

It's also bloated by Amazon crap.

Intel processors on android devices, though generally faster than their arm based counterparts, are cheap for a reason.

Native code compatability.

Hudl2........and I'm posting this from my HDX. The HDX is a superb tablet but really only comes into its own when rooted running Nova launcher and full access to the Google Play store.

On stock Amazon's own store is poor and their replacements for Google apps like Gmail just don't work very well for example sending emails as a 'splodge' with all formatting removed......And the Carousel takes a thumbnail of everything you watch so be careful what you look at.....

Unfortunately I don't think you can root at the moment.

Depends what you prioritise. Battery life on the hudl2 is significantly lower and it only comes in 16gb although it does have a slot for a micro sd card. You get a rear camera with the hudl2 and its an inch bigger but apparently that camera is poor. HDX should be faster too. At £129 I'd go for a 32gb HDX but I have one already. I don't understand how people manage with less than 32gb.

we got the hd 6 for my daughter for £79.99 and was going to get the same for my mum. would we be better off getting this one and spending a bit more? what are the main differences. thanks

Is Lte version locked to Vodafone?

Powerful hardware unfortunately bogged down by Amazon's Fire OS.. I think they're still a pain to root and/or get a custom ROM on it. Could someone comment on how easy it is to download apps from the official Google play store? Was turned off it because of this..

very tempted, was going to get a hudl2 for my wife, she only wants it for books and browsing...whats best

Easy to root and put a ROM on if you follow the instructions which are out there. You can also sideload Play store apps no problem.

I got an HD7 refurb earlier in the year and have been very happy with it. Have just gone for one of these as I could do with the speed upgrade, but the HD7 more than passed a trial.

I was a bit dubious about all of the default Amazon integration at first but as i'm already an Amazon Prime subscriber anyway the integration, especially the Prime video, all works brilliantly and it's transformed the way that I now read books...i've never got through so many.

The Hudl 2 gives more flexibility than the HDX which is a year old but ultimately it is a trade off at this price point. However if you consume a load of Amazon content then this may suit. Amazon though appears to be focussing on the HD 6/7 and the larger 8.9 HDX. Just be aware of the hardware and that the Fire range tend to display some lag as most tech reviews highlight. However - The 64gb LTE version at £179 is a bargain!

Agree with previous poster that I wouldn't pay to remove the ads as they will do it for free.

Previous generation tablet..

Very good price but I had to return my 7" HDX it had blue lines on either side of the screen, very distracting. Think they might have used LEDs with a blue tinge. A number of people on the net have also found this, it was bad enough for Argos to see this and refund.

Yep, this and the new Amazon phone are totally bloated with crap, mostly software to learn your habits to add to their analytics database among everything else to help encourage you to buy buy buy, more, more, more LOL..


The mere fact that they offer a tablet with or without adverts says it all really.
