Cyber Monday Amazon Device Roundup PART 1, including adult Kindles, and Alexa devices: What's still on sale today? What's a must-have?

Every major Amazon device has gone on sale for Black Friday/Cyber Monday, and there seems to be a bit of confusion between the difference between Kindles, Fires, Echos, Dots and Taps, etc. Below is the first part of my brief synopsis of all the Amazon devices on sale this week and what they do. Part 1 here will include adult tablets and Alexa devices. Part 2 will include children's tablets and tv-related devices, and I'll be posting that shortly.




Amazon has got the 7-inch 8 GB Fire Tablet now at $33.33 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping, the lowest recorded Amazon price on this super-popular tablet  (previous price was $49.99).  It got 4.2 out of 5 stars over 83,137 customer reviews and is an Amazon #1 Best Seller.

The Fire has 8 GB of storage but (unlike most other tablets) you can expand the storage by adding a memory card, as needed, which is a brilliant feature.  It does pretty much everything that an iPad (ten times the price) does (this is my opinion as an owner, not a stone-cold fact). This make for a terrific Chanukah gift.

If you've been holding off on buying a tablet, e-reader or iPad, this is a great opportunity for you to acquire a great tablet at the price of a nice dinner out.  If you've already got an iPad, this makes for a suitable worry-free, low-replacement-cost traveling tablet.


The new 6" Kindle Glare-Free E-reader with WiFi dropped from $79.99 to $49.99 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping.  This is a nice "entry-level" e-reader, now glare free. It got 3.9 out of 5 stars over 2,276 customer reviews.




Save $30 on the all new Fire HD 8 with 16 GB of memory, dropping from $89.99 to $59.99 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping. It got 4.4 out of 5 stars over 6,930 customer reviews and is an Amazon #1 Best Seller.  It's great that it has twice the memory of the regular Fire and it's not that much more money.  



Kindle Voyage 6" High-Resolution Display E-reader with Adaptive Built-in Light and Pagepress Sensors and WiFi drops from $199.99 to $169.99 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping.  This looks to me like a high-end e-reader for people who make heavy use of their Kindles, with all the nice bells and whistles that make e-reading a pleasure.


Save $40 on the Amazon Echo, priced at $179.99, but today it's $139.99 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping. It got 4.4 out of 5 stars over 45.762 customer reviews and is an Amazon #1 Best Seller.  It's a voice-responsive. immersive, 360ยบ omni-directional audio speaker that can play music, answer questions, read audiobooks, relay the news, report traffic and weather, give  info on local businesses, provide sports scores and schedules, control lights, switches, and thermostats with compatible home devices, and more.  Amazon is adding more and more functionality to the Echo all the time.


Save $10 on the Amazon Echo Dot, priced at $49.99, but today it's $39.99 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping. It got 4.2 out of 5 stars over 3,174 customer reviews and is an Amazon #1 New Release.  Echo Dot (2nd Generation) is a hands-free, voice-controlled device that uses Alexa to play music, control smart home devices, provide information, read the news, set alarms, and more. You don't need an Amazon Echo to use an Amazon Echo Dot, but from the reviews, it looks like it would need an external speaker in order to play music, etc.  I would probably choose the Dot over the Echo in terms of value for price. 
Save $40 on the Amazon Tap, priced at $129.99, but today it's $89.99 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping.  It got 4.2 out of 5 stars over 3,658 customer reviews and is an Amazon #1 Best Seller.  From reading the description and reviews, the Tap is basically a portable bluetooth speaker that uses Alexa to do all the things that an Echo can do, but without voice recognition.  You don't need an Alexa to use a Tap. The Tap seems like a device that's more music-centric than the Echo.
