Seeing a crapload of Fire Tablet "recommended buy" articles in my feeds.  Then again, AMZ has discounted the basic Fire 7 to $35 for Prime, which is ridiculously cheap.

Loss leader to get people to sign up for Prime?

Some of that, I'd say. BUT there's also been an ongoing clearance sale of Echo devices. I think they're clearing out old inventory for a new generation of echo-enabled products.  A new Fire TV with built-in Alexa was announced recently.

How are these for general browsing?

These are Amz's version of android. On the older models, it's not too hard to put G Play on the tablet without rooting it. Then you can put Chrome on there. The 7" models I have are slightly weak on processing power, so I'd expect them to be sluggish.  I'm thinking these new models will be OK -not blazing- but OK.

But for $165 for the no-ad version, you're not risking much.

The intertubes are going nuts over this. I'm going to have to filter my feeds.
