Amazon Cuts Tablets' Prices, Tests Packet Deliveries With Drones


Amazon is offering its customers $50 off its Kindle Fire HD 16 GB and Kindle Fire HDX 7. The company is also testing GPS-drivn drones to deliver goods.

starting with the Cyber Monday deals, Amazon's customers will receive $50 off two of its most popular Fire tablets: $119 for the Kindle Fire HD 16 GB, normally $169 (nearly 30% off); and $179 for Kindle Fire HDX 7", normally $229 (over 20% off). These deals are available on Amazon.com while supplies last.

The new Kindle Fire HDX 7" features an HDX display, a quad-core 2.2 GHz processor, twice the memory, and up to 11 hours of battery life, as well as new features like X-Ray for Music, Second Screen, Prime Instant Video downloads, and the revolutionary new Mayday button.

The Kindle Fire HD includes an HD display, high-performance processor and dual speakers.

Seperately, Amazon Chief Executive Officer Jeff Bezos unveiled a plan on CBS?s "60 Minutes" news program in the U.S., flying machines that can serve as delivery vehicles.

The gadgets, called octocopters, can carry as much as five pounds (2.3 kg) within a 10-mile radius of an Amazon fulfillment center. Amazon may start using the drones, which can make a delivery within 30 minutes, within five years pending Federal Aviation Administration approval, Bezos said.



The drones probably won't be put into use for four or five years, Bezos said.

Amazon has been trying to find ways to get products to consumers more quickly as it tries to keep shoppers coming back to buy from its Web store instead of going to brick-and-mortar retailers. The company said last month it was teaming up with the U.S. Postal Service to begin Sunday delivery to members of its $79-a-year Prime program.
