While Amazon never misses an opportunity to promote Alexa, the online retail giant doesn't forget its range of Fire tablets. Amazon has just announced a new model of Fire 7, more powerful and better equipped. The 7-inch screen (1024 x 600, 171 dpi) does not move, but the tablet has a new quad-core processor running at 1.3 GHz (this was already the case with the previous model, but the chip is supposed to be more powerful), with 1 GB of RAM.

The device offers 16 to 32 GB of storage (twice as much as before), with the ability to go up to 512 GB via the microSD slot. The autonomy is 7 hours, there are two photo sensors that will not work miracles (2 megapixels each). All this in a 9.6 mm case, "twice as strong as the iPad mini," Amazon says.

This small tablet that runs on Fire OS, Amazon's Android-based operating system, is mainly intended for video games and content consumption (although the screen may be a little narrow and the mono speaker not very powerful).

The Prime subscription obviously gives you the right to the 2 million Prime Music tracks and Prime videos included, but there are also all kinds of apps to install (Netflix, Plex, Spotify, Molotov, etc.). Amazon plays cards on the tablet, specifying on the tablet page that Audible (although owned by Amazon), MyTF1, 6Play, myCanal, and are not available.

Despite everything, it's difficult to make the best of it, as the new Fire 7 is available from €69.99 with "special offers" (ad display), or €84.99 without ads. Pre-orders started today, deliveries start on June 6.
