Amazon slashes Kindle Fire HD 32GB price to $229

Looks like Amazon is not seeing too many sales of the Amazon Kindle Fire HD

That is a full $20 price-cut, and the fact that there is hardly any margin for the retail giant in the hardware, even the $20 price-cut matters a lot.

The 16GB version of Kindle Fire HD tablet remains at its existing price of $199.

The timing of this price-reduction is particularly interesting, as just a month ago; Amazon had slashed the price of Kindle Fire HD 8.9.

May be the Nexus 7 and other low-priced tablets are eating up all of Amazon’s market.

To remind you, Kindle Fire HD features 7-inch (1280x800p) display. It is powered by Texas Instruments OMAP dual-core processor. The tablet runs on Amazon’s custom version Android 4.0. Other features include Wi-Fi, HDMI out, Bluetooth, and HD front camera.

The company had recently released a software update for Kindle Fire HD bringing support for X-Ray for Textbooks and more features – full story here.
