Do you want to know a secret? None of the people who buy the Amazon bonfire tablet really want it. That’s right. They see the higher price of an iPad or a good Android tablet and then convince themselves that the cheaper Fire tablet is just as good. Especially those who give a tablet. If someone gives you an Amazon fire tablet for Christmas or your birthday, it usually means they don’t think you’re worth a lot of money. But it can also mean that they just don’t have a lot of money.
This does not mean that the fire on the tablet is absolutely bad. In fact, they are decent enough for content consumption (especially if you invest in the Amazon ecosystem). But without access to the Google Play Store they can be very disappointed. Amazon today announced three new versions of its 8-inch tablet: Fire HD 8, Fire HD 8 Plus and Fire HD 8 Kids Edition. Special info Azure Cloud Management.
The all-new Fire HD 8 features a 1280 x 800-inch high-definition screen with over a million pixels resolution, superior performance, dual memory capacity, longer battery life and Alexa. With access to millions of movies, TV shows, songs, e-books, magazines, applications and games, Fire HD 8 is the perfect tablet to enjoy your entertainment. According to Amazon, the new Fire HD 8 Plus offers enhanced performance with up to 50% more RAM, transparent wireless charging, a 9-watt adapter in a box, a new slate color and for a limited time – six months of Kindle Unlimited.
The online store also reports that we are pleased to announce the release of a new device for children – a brand new Fire HD 8 Kids Edition. It comes with an 8-inch Fire HD tablet, 32GB of memory, up to 12 hours of dual battery life, a two-year worry-free warranty and a one-year Amazon FreeTime Unlimited with access to over 20,000 high-quality books, age-appropriate audio books, educational applications, games and videos.
