Amazon's latest Kindle Fire HD tablet may have just been released to the public, but that doesn't mean Amazon isn't going to put it on sale. It turns out that — for today only — the company is slashing $50 off the regular $299 starting price of the Kindle Fire HD 8.9, which means you can get the new tablet for only $249 for the 16GB version or $319 for the 32GB model.

To take advantage of the deal, you'll have to be quick, since it only lasts for today and "quantities are limited." All you have to do is head to the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 product page on Amazon, add it to your cart, and type in FIREHD89 at checkout. From there, the deal will take affect and you'll save yourself $50 in an instant.

Amazon announced the deal on their Twitter feed, noting that it's a "special, one-day deal" on the new 8.9-inch tablet. And while you have all day to ponder over the deal, the company notes that you should hurry, since supply is limited. Even if they had an abundant supply of these tablets, we wouldn't be surprised if they all sold out sometime today.

Amazon's Kindle Fire HD 8.9 is the company's latest tablet to add to their Kindle Fire lineup. It has an 8.9-inch IPS LCD display with an impressive resolution of 1920x1200. On the inside, there's an OMAP4470 dual-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz from Texas Instruments and 1GB of RAM. It also has a front-facing 1.3MP camera for video chatting.
