Amazon’s main focus on price that it actually offered the new 7-inch Fire tablets starting from just $49.99, or packs of six for just $250. Now, as an extension of that offering, Amazon has announced new colors and even more storage options for its 7-inch Fire tablet. Who knew that purchasing a multipack of slate conputers would go so wild.
The newly announced options are available to purchase right away, and will definitely delight consumers who happen to be in the market for a performant and affordable tablet that comes in some vibrant colors. The new colors that the cheapest 7-inch tablet is now available in are Magenta, Blue and the awesome Tangarine.
As part of it, Amazon has also revealed a new higher capacity model that allows more files and data to be stored directly on the device itself. Giving away the additional internal storage will allow owners to store more apps, games, and other content such as music files and photographs and of course media files like videos that are captured through the device camera.
The lowest in the list would be the 8GB capacity model, is still available at the highly affordable $49.99 price while customers wanting to double up and move to the 16GB version can do so by parting ith $69.99. It’s very important to note that both the 8GB and 16GB models supports storage expansion via microSD cards.
