Amazon Unveils New Fire Tablets Starting at Just $49
Posted September 17, 2015 by GottaDeal.com Staff
This morning Amazon.com unveiled four new versions of their popular Fire line of Android-based tablets, all running and upgraded version of its Fire OS 5 "Bellini" operating system.
Amazon released two new Fire HD tablets, in 8" and 10" sizes. These lower cost models are the thinnest tablets the company has sold at only 7.7 mm thick. The screens are also brighter to help with reading books and other activities in bright areas such as outdoors.
These models provide a lower cost alternative to the iPad mini and iPad Air 2 which have similar sized screens but cost much more. The Fire HD 8 costs $150 and the larger Fire HD 10 will sell for $230, before any discounts Amazon may have coming up.
Amazon also announced that it would release its smallest, lightest and cheapest tablet ever, called the Fire. This quad-core tablet features a 7" IPS display, 8GB of internal storage and costs just $50. If you buy five of these tablets, you'll get a 6th free.
The kids edition of the Fire tablet is also being updated with a lower price ($100 compared to $150 for the older version) and comes preloaded with kids games, videos and other hand selected content. This model also includes a damage-resistant case.
