Amazon has just announced three new Fire HD 8 tablets, making sure there is something available for everyone in the family.

As per usual, with Amazon tablets, these start at just $90. Making them super cheap and affordable. So you can pick up a new tablet without breaking the bank.

The new Fire HD 8 Tablet

As you'd expect, the Fire HD 8 does have a 8-inch display. And as usual, the internals are the real upgrades here.

So the Fire HD 8 tablet sports a 2GHz quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM. Which makes it about 30% faster than the previous generation. It also sports USB-C for charging.

Storage capacities are now 32GB or 64GB, so there's no more 16GB storage option for the Fire HD 8. There are still the same 2-megapixel cameras on the front and back of the tablet.

And as expected, the Fire HD 8 is the cheapest of the bunch, coming in at $90.

Amazon Fire HD 8 Plus brings more RAM

Amazon also introduced a new Fire HD 8 Plus tablet that features the same specs as the regular tablet. But now it comes with an additional gigabyte of RAM, coming in at 3GB of RAM.

With this tablet, you also get wireless charging. And there is an optional dock for this that brings the bundle to $140. But the tablet itself is priced at $110. Which might be worth it over the regular tablet, for that extra RAM and wireless charging.

Don't forget about the Kids Edition

Of course, Amazon didn't forget the kids here, and there is a new Fire HD 8 Kids Edition. Which doesn't really change much from the previous versions.

It does, however, bring you more content and it also has the 2-year worry-free guarantee. Which basically means that no matter how the tablet breaks, Amazon will replace it no questions asked.

This is still going to be a really great option for parents looking for a more affordable alternative than an older iPad. Since the new Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet is priced at $140.

All three versions are up for pre-order now and will be shipping on June 3. You can pre-order them now by clicking the links down below. Keep in mind that these prices do include special offers, aka ads. Of course, the Kids Edition tablets still do not feature ads, which is a good thing. As parents won't need to worry about whether or not their kids are tapping on ads and running up their credit card bills, or seeing inappropriate ads, which is important too.
