Amazon Fire 7 is Now More Expensive to purchase. The bar for bargains has risen. Amazon’s new Fire 7 tablet is, priced at $59.99 / £59.99 (around AU$105), a great deal, but its predecessor was an arguably better one. What just occurred?
There were some much better gadget deals than Amazon’s 7-inch Fire tablet. For years and via several updates, it’s sold for around $49.99 – a just-blow – $50 Android wonder that was the perfect tablet gift to purchase for your child and your family members that might not care for their Gadget very well. For a time, Amazon sold them in bundles, like a carton of eggs, so that you could make a replacement immediately with a fresh one.
Amazon Fire 7 is Now More Expensive
The specs of the tablet were never stellar. A relatively Low-resolution 1024 x 600 7-inch touch-screen, a 1.3GHz Mediatek CPU, 16GB of storage, a gig of RAM, and a pair of 2MP cameras for the front and back cameras for the front and back. But it had all that a lot of people require for basic tablet activities: Lightweight gaming, browsing, email, reading, and watching videos.
The $59.99 Amazon Fire 7 tablet still possesses most of the same specs, including the screen resolution, Cameras, base storage, and screen size. For just an extra $10, you get a 2GHz quad-core processor and twice the RAM. That fresh processor and RAM boost will result in a much faster tablet, though the targeted market might not notice this.
I’m left to wonder why Amazon had to increase the price by 10$. Granted, it’s not a lot (maybe enough for a bath mat, some cheap wired earbuds, an iPhone cable, or a surgical Mask), but seeing as there is an increase in difficult economic times, that extra scratch can actually make a difference.
Why The Price Hiked
Amazon has probably decided to pass along the cost of a more powerful processor and RAM directly to its consumers. This might so be because it is getting more difficult to get these baseline or commodity processors. Higher-end, more bespoke, and powerful ones are somewhat easier to get. 2GHz chips like this, which might also end up in a car computer, are getting even harder to locate.
Acquiring components for tablets, in general, has gotten quite difficult. Even Apple had issues with tablet sales due to lower supply chain issues and not consumer disinterest.
The higher Amazon Fire 7 price actually could be the basic inflation. The costs of everything that Amazon is doing, from warehouses where employees are unionizing to trucks fueled by about $5 a gallon gas delivering products, are rising.
The Amazon Fire 7 Android tablet for $59.99 is still a really good deal, especially when you compare it to the cheapest Apple iPad (the 9.8-inch, $329 iPad), but the days when we could get a remarkably good tablet for under $50.
