Price cuts for Amazon Kindle Fire HD, HP Slate 7

Seems like everyone's jumping on the price cut train

Kindle Fire HD

For those of you getting ready for vacations and don't want to pack a whole library, HP and Amazon have reduced the prices of their 7-inch Android tablets just for you.

The just released HP Slate 7 has seen a $30 drop and is now retailing at $140 for the 8GB model and $170 for the 16GB in the US, with the 16GB Amazon Kindle Fire HD available for $169 (£139)

It seems like both HP and Amazon want some of the action from Barnes and Noble's own recent price drop of the Nook HD and the Nook HD +. The Nook sale is still happening so we'll see in the upcoming weeks which tablet everyone has decided to snatch up.

After all, with so many tablets to choose from and at such great prices - which won't be here forever - how can you not be tempted to get your hands on one?
