Amazon Fire 7" (2015) 8GB Wi-Fi Tablet

I own one, I have it mounted on a wall and hooked up to some speakers in my workshop. handy for playing music via Pandora or Amazon while in the shop. also works in a pinch for looking something up if I don’t have my phone on me.
I made the mount attachable to a cheap VESA arm so I can pull it down if I need to do more than push play/pause/next

Before the “enthusiast” critics chime in with what it can’t do…it’s an 18 buck reliable tablet. If you have Prime, you can watch movies, listen to music, read a book.

Put on xWriter and get a keyboard and write. Geeze, 18 bucks, gang. 18.

I tried to order and was prompted to try Prime for 30 days and get free shipping. So I signed up, logged out and logged back in with Prime. I tried to place the order but was not given free shipping as advertised. Seems like just a ploy to get me to join Prime and get my credit card info. VERY DISAPPOINTED.

I don’t see any complaints, John.

I probably qualify as one of those tech “enthusiast” you were warned about, but I already own one – bought over a year ago to see what it could do, and I love it. Runs most Android apps, great battery life. Binge watched Outlander during a 14+ hour travel day this week and it lasted (just… but it lasted) the whole trip.

The one thing anyone buying should know is that according to the “specs.” there’s a charge cable, but no power supply. Hopefully not a biggie as they’re pretty cheap, just don’t people being ‘disappointed’ as this isn’t as clear as it might be.

Is there a GPS app that will run on this? If so, it would make a great addition to my sport-touring motorcycle.


Under sensors on the ‘specs’ tab they list an accelerometer but no GPS.
