Bargains on the Fire Phone follow a tepid public reception on the device
Amazon has dropped the prices on a slew of its devices as part of the Black Friday shopping rush.
Amazon’s $79 Kindle e-reader will be on sale for $49, and the company’s Kindle Fire tablets are also dramatically cheaper, with the Fire HD 6 going for a mere $79 (versus its usual $99 price tag) and the Fire HD 7 on sale for $109 (versus $139).
Meanwhile, the e-commerce giant has pegged the price of an unlocked Fire phone to just $199, a $250 price cut from its already reduced price. Amazon is still including a year of free Amazon Prime with the phone.
Amazon has dramatically reduced its prices on the Fire phone after it received mediocre reviews and suffered lackluster sales.
