Amazon Fire HD 10 as a netbook: keyboard and office in a bundle
Due to their large display, tablets are much better suited for multimedia content than smartphones. This also applies to the Fire HD devices from Amazon. If you want to be productive, you usually still use a notebook or the more compact version, the so-called netbook. Since the keyboard usually makes the difference, both worlds can also be combined. Both the Fire HD 10 and the Fire 10 Plus are available as a bundle with a Bluetooth keyboard and Microsoft 365 with a discount for Black Friday 2022. The bundles are also available in different memory configurations and with and without advertising, and you can also buy the keyboards and Office 365 individually.

Why are Fire tablets so cheap on Black Friday 2022?
Of course, the low prices of the Fire tablets are no coincidence. Of course, Amazon benefits when users arrive in the company’s own ecosystem with Alexa, Eco and Co. The in-house shop is also firmly integrated into the tablets. For example, sponsored screensavers are displayed on the device lock screen and in idle mode when the “With ads” option is selected. Users generally describe this in the reviews as unobtrusive, but anyone who is still bothered by it can also use the “no advertising” configuration. In that case, however, the Fire tablets will be more expensive. Amazon also grants discounts on Black Friday on tablets without the advertising option.

Officially, the Google Play Store is not supported on Amazon’s Fire tablets, even if the operating system is based on Android. On the app side, however, a lot has happened in recent years. Whereas only a few third-party programs used to be available, popular streaming apps such as Netflix, Sky Ticket or Disney+ have long been on board. Instagram, TikTok, Zoom, Skype and Facebook can also be used with one of the Fire tablets that are being offered at low prices during Black Friday Week.
Echo Show mode with Alexa: Fire Tablet or just an Echo Show?
The current generation of the Fire HD 8 (Plus) and Fire HD 10 (Plus) have a built-in Echo Show mode that turns the tablets into portable Alexa touchscreen devices. This show mode can be activated at any time via the notification center. This means that the corresponding Alexa skills can also be used. You can either use a case or a special docking station to set up your Fire HD tablet. Alternatively, Amazon naturally also has the stationary Echo Show, Echo Dot devices and Fire TV sticks on offer for Black Friday 2022:
Amazon Kindle: Save on Black Friday e-book readers
Bookworms can also quench their thirst for reading on a Fire tablet via the Kindle app. If you like it particularly easy on the eyes, you’d better use a Kindle. Modern models like the Kindle Paperwhite have customizable lighting, read-aloud functionality, and plenty of battery power. You can also buy them cheaply from Amazon during Black Friday 2022. Incidentally, e-book readers are particularly energy-saving tablet alternatives due to their “electronic ink”, in which the displayed image is not constantly updated.
