DEAL – Kindle Fire HD 8.9 – £127 delivered

Another tablet deal, this time its for the previous generation Kindle Fire HD 8.9 inch tablet. Upon UK release, this was one of the highest resolution tablets below 9 inchs, featuring an above Full HD 1920×1200 resolution, which is good even today. The screen is beautiful and ideal for LoveFilm (now Amazon Instant Video) and reading magazines. At £127 you are getting a fully supported full size tablet for 7inch tablet price.

So what is the catch?

Well the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 is not the latest Kindle Fire, which is the HDX range. If you are a hard core gamer, then this might put you off as its 1.5GHz dual core processor isnt a match to the Nexus 7’s Snapdragon processor. However if you are a casual gamer, or just want to watch films, browse online and read then why not save yourself a hundred and forty pounds over the HDX and grab an absolute steal. If you have Amazon Prime you now have LoveFilm (now called Amazon Instant Video) included which for tablets is only available on Kindle Fires.  Videos are particularly good on this tablet as the speakers are some of, if not the best of any full size tablet. You also get full access to the Amazon Appstore which is getting better by the day and includes a free paid for app everyday.

If buying for someone who you know would be a “casual” user, or if you dont demand the fastest machine in the world and just want a well built device with a great screen, there isn’t much that comes close to the Fire HD 8.9, except the Nook HD+ which is good but a bit fatter, and cheaper looking and also discontinued.

For Android modders, you can even put KitKat 4.4 on it 🙂

Cheapest Price Ultrabook in the UK – Toshiba Satellite Z830-10T – £696.40

The 13.3 inch Toshiba Satellite Z830-10T Ultrabook – £696.40 delivered from Amazon





If you are looking for a stylish Ultrabook without spending close to £1000 then this Toshiba is a superb choice. It is gorgeous, and still has an ultra fast SSD drive and USB3, however it has a Core i3 rather than an i5 or i7. This still means it is fast, more than fast enough for most people, howveer it means the price is a good £100 cheaper than the next SSD ultrabook. This is a great comprimise between price and performance.

Samsung Galaxy Nexus 16GB Sim free – Amazon Warehouse £369.99

The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is one of the most powerful smartphones on the market, and is still one of only a few to have the excellent Android 4.0 operating system onboard. Normally costing close to £450-500 this “like new” SIM free deal is an incredible deal from Amazon Warehouse. Being Amazon you can trust the description, and from this a small scratch is nothing on that superb 4.65 inch Super AMOLED screen for a £150 saving.

The Galaxy Nexus offers a ridiculous 1280×720 resolution on the HD screen. This means it has the same number of pixels as many 40 inch HD Ready TVs. As you can imagine, the result of this is the screen quality is epic. Watching films is a pure pleasure, as are the games, partially due to the screen and partly due to the 1.2GHz dual core processor which moves things along nicely.

Basically if you have been holding off getting a Samsung Galaxy Nexus due to the high price, this is the perfect way to grab a bargain, but be quick as being used stock prices change. There are other sellers out there who are good also (see feedback) but we would recommend Amazon Warehouse as you know the descriptions are 100% accurate.
