AT&T will soon have a product to pair with Amazon's struggling Fire Phone.
On Friday, the Dallas telecommunications provider will begin selling the, Amazon's latest tablet. By itself, the Fire HDX 7 costs $100 with a two-year contract, or $10 a month over 20 months.
AT&T is also offering the Fire HDX 7 for $50 when purchased with the Fire Phone, which starts at 99 cents with a two-year contract. The promotion runs through November 20, and both devices will require two-year contracts.
While Amazon may boast the largest online storefront in the world, it hasn't had the same success with the Fire Phone. After debuting in July with a contract price of $200, the Fire Phone wastwo months later. For many, the rapid reduction in price confirmed what some had suspected: that the Fire Phone was struggling in the marketplace.
Amazon has had better luck with tablets, with the original Kindle Fire making waves when it debuted in late 2011 for $199. It was the first mainstream low-cost tablet that cemented Amazon's push into the hardware business.
