There’s a reason that Amazon’s 7-inch Fire Tablet is the best-selling device across the entire Computers & Accessories category on the Amazon website. There’s also a reason the device has a 4.2-star rating from more than 54,000 — that’s fifty-four thousand! — customer reviews. The Fire Tablet offers a fantastic user experience, a good amount of power and access to all of your favorite apps, streaming video services and games for a surprisingly affordable price. This week only, that price is getting even more surprisingly affordable.
