Seattle – Amazon announced on Thursday that its low-cost Fire tablet is now available in three new colors aside from the black model: blue, magenta and tangerine. The retail giant also introduced a 16GB model for $69.99 in addition to the 8GB version, which customers can buy for $49.99.
And children won’t miss out on the fun. The Fire Kids Edition will also be available with 16 GB of internal storage to enjoy more books, videos, games, and music. Amazon is now offering this edition in green aside from the existing pink and blue versions.
Parents can now choose between the $99 8GB version and the new 16GB model for $119.99. The Kids Edition offers one year of Amazon Free Time Unlimited featuring over 40,000 hand-curated YouTube videos and websites, as well as more than 10,000 age-appropriate books, educational apps, videos, and games.
“Fire is the fastest-selling Amazon tablet ever, with millions sold since its launch,” declared Kevin Keith, GM, Fire Tablets, as reported by Android Police.
PC Magazine said in a Fire review that the software load eats up 2.37 of the tablet’s storage, which is why they recommend adding a microSD at checkout when buying the device if customers go for the 8GB version.
