While Amazon might have had lofty plans for the Fire Phone, safe to say that either they did not execute it properly or the features that they had imagined just weren’t what users were after. As you might have heard, the company has recently had to writedown $170 million because of the Fire Phone, but here’s one way they are making the purchase a tad more attractive.
AT&T, who offers the Fire Phone on contract, has recently announced a new deal in which it would allow customers to purchase both a phone and tablet at a relatively affordable price. For a limited time, AT&T will be selling the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7-inch model for $49.99 if you were to purchase it alongside a Fire Phone.
The tablet is normally priced at $99.99 with a two-year contract or $199.99 off-contract, so if you are in the market for a new tablet and smartphone, perhaps this bundle could be a pretty good offer. The 32GB Amazon Fire Phone on AT&T is priced at $0.99 with a 2-year contract, so essentially you could be getting both devices for a little over $50 if you were to take AT&T up on their deal.
While the Amazon Fire Phone wasn’t exactly our favorite phone in our reviews, the Kindle Fire HDX tablet is a different story. Our review of the 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HDX found the tablet to be an excellent device in terms of performance and entertainment. So, any takers?
