Kindle Fire Remains Most Affordable Tablet for Christmas Reports

San Francisco, California, Dec 18, 2012 ( via COMTEX) -- has followed the Kindle Fire throughout its September release, its first sell out and the various price drops witnessed through the holiday. The researchers for this website have found that this tablet remains the most affordable for Christmas according to a new published report.

A combination of features as well as the sale incentives are now included in this new report to help shoppers searching for the best deals.

Apple's iPad is one of the competitors to the Kindle edition of tablets. The price comparison for each of these tablets is very different. While Apple reports a larger market share, the retail price is approximately $100 higher for the iPad compared with the same 7-inch version of the Kindle Fire tablet. This information is included in the new report.

Two sales events have helped to introduce the Kindle variant to the public for the holiday season. A Cyber Monday price drop and a $50 off incentive for the HD 8.9 have taken place this year. The close of these special sale periods caused Amazon to report that its Kindle is now the most gifted Christmas item.

The website was one of the first to report these sales drops and the new report mentions the next price reduction that is expected. One of the drawbacks to the sudden price reduction is the affect that these discounts have on those that have already purchased tablets through this season. Those that paid the full MSRP price can often miss out on discounts that are offered before the close of the year.

While other manufacturers are now creating tablets, the price point for the Kindle Fire 7 and other editions has remained the same. The technology that is expected to launch next year should cause a price decrease for remaining models in the lineup according to the report. Those that are searching for the best holiday deal for a tablet could benefit from comparing the pricing between models available to achieve the lowest price.
