Amazon Fire HD 8

Amazon has just taken the wraps off its new Fire HD 8 tablet, which comes with Alexa on board. In addition to this attractive voice assistant service, the tablet also comes with a handy specs sheet underneath. However, this won’t contend with the high-end tablets that are available out there. This is evident by the starting price of $89.99. The company is taking pre-orders right away, with units expected to ship by September 21.

Let’s have a quick look at the hardware of the Fire HD 8:

  • 8-inch 1280 x 800 display
  • 1.3 GHz quad-core processor
  • 2MP rear camera
  • VGA front camera
  • 16/32GB storage (expandable)
  • 1.5GB RAM
  • Android with Fire OS (upgradable to Fire OS 5.4)
  • 4,750 mAh battery
  • Stereo speakers (Dolby)

The pricing for the models are as follows:

16GB with special offers$89.99

16GB without special offers$104.99

32GB without special offers $119.99

32GB without special offers$134.99

Given that you’re spending under $135 regardless of the model you pick, we think you’re getting a very good bargain here. Amazon’s Fire HD tablets have always catered to the budget-conscious public, so this is not particularly surprising to us. You can head over to Amazon page below to pre-order the tablets right away.
