Amazon Fire 7 tablet.
Amazon has released a new version of its Fire 7 tablet. Like the previous model, this product is only $ 49.99 and is available for pre-order before shipment on June 6.
Amazon's Fire tablet has long offered an affordable alternative to products like iPads and gives you easy access to Amazon's ecosystem products, including Alexa voice assistant, Prime Video, Prime Music, the company's App Store and Amazon.com. For comparison: Apple's latest iPad Mini is similar in size but priced at $ 399.
The new Fire tablet model currently offers twice the storage capacity, so you can get 16GB in the base version instead of 8GB, and the company can keep adding microSD card slot and always add more capacity. Amazon will also sell a 32GB version. Amazon now supports Alexa HandsFree so this model can be called by saying Alexa to the tablet. It also said the company said it was resistant to spills and drops.
Amazon's Fire tablets are often a good alternative to iPads. The Fire HD 8 delivers crisp screen and battery life, but costs $ 80. It also has a 10.1-inch model with a 1080p display and 32GB of storage, priced at $ 149.99. However, the Fire HD 8 and Fire HD 10 were not updated on Thursday. If you have more money, check out Apple's 9.7-inch iPad or the new iPad mini that has faster apps.
Fire 7 tablets come in four colors, including black, green, purple and blue. Amazon will also sell a special "Fire-Kids Kids Edition" for $ 99.99. There is also Amazon's FreeTime service, which includes games, apps, books and video libraries that are familiar to children.
