Small upgrades sweeten the deal just a bit

by Kathi Wilke (2019-08-11)


Shaun Botterill / Getty Images For the first time since their epic 2008 final, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal will face off again on Centre Court at Wimbledon. In 2008, Nadal edged Federer 9-7 in the fifth set of what is generally considered to be the greatest match in the history of the sport. More recently, Nadal beat Federer in straight sets at the French Open last month to capture his record 12th title on the red clay of Roland Garros. Federer leads the rivalry on grass 2-1, however, with wins in the Wimbledon final in 2006 and 2007.

A few months back Amazon introduced Show Mode for its Fire HD 10 and Fire HD 8 tablets along with a Show Mode Charging Dock accessory that essentially allows you to turn your Fire tablet into an Echo Show. The always-ready Alexa feature that's built into Amazon's Echo devices is available for the previous generation Fire HD 8 via a software upgrade (after the software upgrade you no longer don't have to touch the screen to enable voice commands). However, it didn't work when your screen went into standby mode unless the device was plugged into power.

All of them offer free trial periods, so you can sign up to watch and then cancel. (Wait until the second half of the fortnight to start your trial, and you can watch all of the quarterfinals, semifinals and finals matches without spending a dime.)
Disclosure: CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page. 

"[The] Fire HD 8 includes always-ready, hands-free Alexa, which impacts battery usage," an Amazon spokesperson explained to CNET. "There are hardware capabilities that help manage battery impact, but Alexa hands-free is also an optional feature. If you choose to turn it off, you may gain about 2 hours of battery life. You can still access Alexa by pushing the Home button."

Most deals start Monday, but you can find discounts on the Echo Dot and Amazon devices right now. And, if you prefer the Google Assistant family, Amazon competitors from Walmart to Best Buy to Target will be selling those products at big discounts, with some sales already available, too. Below, we list our favorite current smart home deals, followed by the best known savings coming on Prime Day itself.

Sarag Tew/CNET The "all-new" Fire HD 8 tablet for 2018 is much more of a refresh than a major upgrade. Available in the same colors and chassis as the previous model, the latest Amazon Fire HD 8 adds a 2-megapixel front-facing camera with 720p video, support for up to 400GB additional storage via its microSD slot and hands-free Alexa support even when your screen is in standby mode. It starts at the same cost as the last HD 8: $80 (£80) for the 16GB with built-in "special offer" ads, which you can buy out at any time for a flat $15 fee.
