You can now get hold of the Amazon Fire smartphone from less than a hundred quid for one day only.
The online department store’s debut smartphone, the Amazon Fire, comes locked to the O2 network with two storage size options – 32GB and 64GB. Both will be available at the special sale prices until 12am Thursday (Wednesday night) with the basic storage model now £99 where usually it would be £399 or buyers can choose to upgrade the storage for just £149 and on any other day this handset would set you back £479.
Those who snap up this deal will get to enjoy Amazon’s own take on Android – Fire OS displayed on a 4.7-inch HD touchscreen with a 3D interface, 2.2GHz processing courtesy of Qualcomm CPU with 2GB of RAM. 13-megapixel camera and the ability to clock up to 4G data speeds are also amongst the Amazon Fire’s many redeeming features.
Amazon’s own features are notable throughout the handset including its trademark Kindle platform, identification tool Firefly and Mayday, which is live customer service at the touch of a screen. The Fire is also designed with Amazon Prime services in mind, allowing access and viewing of a massive library of digital entertainment including movies, TV and books.
What is notable however is the absence of the Google Play store which does somewhat limit the app selection if you’re coming over from the rich offerings on Android. YouTube, Maps and Gmail users may be disappointed but suitable alternatives can be found in the Amazon Appstore. Aside from this minor detail the Amazon Fire smartphone is well worth the £99 being asked for it. Check out full specs and details now on the Amazon website.
