Tablet prices keep dropping. We have already seen B&N offer NOOK HD and NOOK HD+ devices for crazy prices. Considering that B&N is getting out of the business of making NOOKs, that was not surprising to see. Amazon has had some impressive Kindle deals in the past. The latest one gives tablet shoppers the opportunity to get a Kindle Fire HD for $169. That is a $30 discount.
Amazon suggests this is a limited time deal. But we would not be surprised if the price became permanent once the next generation Kindle Fire device hits the market. The 32 GB version of this tablet has been discounted too (going for $199 at this time).
