(Pocket-lint) - Amazon Prime Day is almost over and you don't want to miss this deal on the Fire HD 8.

The Fire HD 8 was redesigned in 2020, giving a more modern look to Amazon's mid-sized tablet. There's also been an update to the connectivity, with a USB Type-C included for charging - so it's a a great tablet, at a great price.

For Prime Day there's been $45 taken off meaning you can get it for $44.99 in the US or £50 taken off in the UK meaning it's just £49.99.

We think this is the cheapest this tablet has ever been, but you'll have to buy it quick, or pay the price.

The Amazon Fire HD 8 offers a great size of display for portability, ideal for loading with movies and taking on your travels, or accessing all that Amazon content through your Prime subscription - or just binging Netflex or Disney+.

It offers great Dolby Atmos sound, has enough power to give you access to plenty of entertainment, as well as a battery that will last you around 12 hours.

If you're on the look out for the Fire HD 8 Plus version with wireless charging, you're in luck as that has a $45 discount at $64.99 or a £50 saving, priced at £59.99.
