Black Friday officially starts in a few days but some excellent Amazon Black Friday deals are already live.
For a limited time, the Fire 7 tablet is on sale for $29 (opens in new tab), down from its original price of $49. That's $20 off (or 40% off) Amazon's cheapest tablet, and the lowest price we've seen since Amazon Prime Day.
In our Fire 7 review, we praised the tablet for its speedy performance and long battery life. Major upgrades this latest version brings include 16GB of memory (up from 8GB) and hands-free Alexa, so you activate the assistant using your voice.
We found that the latter feature worked really well. All we had to do was say a wake word (options include Alexa, Echo and Computer), then give a command. Alexa told us the weather and the score of an MLB game without any slipups.
With a 7-inch, 1024 x 600 resolution display, you shouldn't expect the best image quality from the Fire 7, but it should do just fine for casually streaming TV shows and browsing the web.
