AT&T today announced that the Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9 LTE will be available starting from April 5. Available as standalone for $399, the tablet can be added to one of AT&T’s shared data plans. On the other hand, you can also pick it up for $249, provided you agree to a two-year contract.
The limited time deal sees $100 in discount for signing the agreement while the other $50 is for buying the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 LTE in an AT&T store. Listed as a limit-time deal, it’s hard to say for sure how long it will last.
“Being the first carrier to connect Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD to our 4G LTE network provides the best mobile internet experience,” said Chris Penrose, senior vice president of emerging devices, AT&T. “Combining our 4G LTE with Kindle Fire HD’s rich features at an incredible price point yields a great value and experience for our customers.”
Could this be construed as the potential for other carrier’s offering the Kindle Fire HD line? We wouldn’t rule it out.
