Want to stuff a couple of stockings for the holidays? Here's a cool suggestion from Amazon: the Kindle Fire HDX 7" 4G LTE. This is last year's Kindle Fire generation but still the newest HDX 7" available — Amazon didn't update the HDX 7" line when it released the new HD 6, 7, and HDX 8.9" this past September. The 4G LTE models are being discounted 50% today only through Amazon Gold Box, while the regular Wi-Fi only models have kept their regular price.


Spec-wise, the HDX 7" line-up is known for its high-resolution 1920 x 1200 display and quad-core 2.2GHz processor. These two factors differentiate it from the regular HD 7 (1280 x 800 display and 1.5GHz quad-core processor). Normally, the HDX 7" is priced way higher than the HD 7, but thanks to this discount, they're in the same range. Add 4G LTE, Amazon's Mayday button, and you have a very sweet deal that's tough to beat. For example, the 16GB HDX 7" 4G LTE is down from $279 to $139 ($147 if you don't want to see Amazon's "Special Offers"), which is just a few bucks more than the 16GB Wi-Fi HD 7 at $134.

Only the 16GB and 64GB versions of the HDX 7" are in the Gold Box now. At most, you're looking at $159 for the 64GB HDX 7" 4G LTE with Special Offers — the one without them was $174 but was sold out as I writing this post. This deal is valid only today or until stocks are gone, which is probably going to be very, very, very soon. Hurry up!
