If you're on the hunt for a new Android tablet, we've just uncovered a truly unmissable Prime Day deal, almost two weeks before the sale officially goes live. Head to Amazon now and you can snag the Fire HD 10 (2021) tablet for just $74.99, a 50% drop from its usual retail price. 

This is the device that we selected as the "best tablet for students" in our roundup of the best Android tablets, and although it's a few years old at this point, the Fire HD 10 nevertheless continues to be a great pick if you value performance, versatility, and bang for the buck. The tablet boasts a 10.1-inch Full HD display with 1080p resolution, alongside an 8-core 2.0 GHZ processor and up to 12 hours of battery life on a single charge. This particular discount is only available for the 32GB version of the tablet, but that can go a long way for most casual users. If you decide you do need more storage capacity, you can add up to 1TB using a microSD card.

Prime Day doesn't kick off until July 11th, but you can already save a whopping 50% on the Fire HD 10 (2021) tablet if you make the purchase today. This "best tablet for students" comes with a vibrant 10.1-inch 1080p touchscreen display, up to 12 hours of battery life, and expandable storage up to 1TB. You'll also get hands-free Alexa support and 3GB of RAM, alongside Bluetooth and a standard headphone jack. 

Note: This deal is only available for Prime members

Of course, as we note in our Amazon Fire HD 10 (2021) review, the tablet doesn't come without a few issues. You can only download apps from the Amazon app store, for instance (no Google Play store here), and we're a little concerned that the tablet doesn't have a waterproof rating. Still, Amazon Fire tablets have always been a great choice if you're dealing with a budget of under $200, and the current price of just $74.99 makes the Fire HD 10 (2021) an absolute steal. 

The one catch is that the deal is only available to active Prime members. Luckily, if you sign up for the FREE 30-day Prime trial, you can enjoy all of the exclusive deals without paying a cent.
