I'm not wrong. I'm also not arguing with you.

The first generation Kindle Fire (which I assume you mean and not the Kindle) came with 512MB of RAM and 8 GB of storage of which about 6.5 GB was available to the user to be used for apps or music or movies.


Kindle Fire - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Maybe, possibly the first generation Kindle Fire limited app storage somehow (I doubt that, it would not be in Amazon's best interest to only give you a slice of stoarage for apps), but I promise you every Android tablet on the market from the Honda to the Caddy works exactly as I described. iPads, too.

So is it possible find a decent new or refurbished tablet for under 99 dollars.
Walmart sells a lot of Android based phones at a reduced price for TracFone, NET10 Wireless, Straight Talk, SIMPLE Mobile, and Total Wireless (all basically the same company). The package says you should only buy the phone if you intend to activate it with the cell company, but there is nobody to force you to do that. If you don't activate them, they make low priced Android tablets (although with 3.5"-5" screens).

I bought an LGL34C Android tablet/phone at Walmart (3.5") for less than $20 and I use it to run Android apps or to make free domestic calls using Google Voice and Hangouts when I have wifi. I have never activated it, and I can usually make calls using free wifi (from parking lot of McDonalds, Burger King, or Panera if need arises). If my car has broken down or I am in an accident, then I can purchase 120 minutes of outgoing cellular call on the Verizon network from American Roaming for $15 (good for one year).

Older Fires have a partition system that only allows 1.17GB to be used for apps.

You don't have to "move" the apps to larger internal storage on modern Android devices because there's no fixed-size app partition. You can just fill the device with apps, music, movies, or whatever.

I paid $140 for my Acer Iconia Tab 8 at Best Buy, and it's an 8 inch. I like it a lot, but for the pre-installed bloatware, which you are going to get with any tablet, unfortunately.
