new Fire 7


Amazon has introduced the new version of its Fire 7 tablet. The device retains the form factor of its predecessors, including a 7-inch display with a resolution of 1,024 x 600 pixels, but has better memory. The tablet is available with either 16 or 32 GB flash memory, twice as much as before.


According to Amazon, the processor should also be faster, the new model uses an unspecified quad-core processor with a maximum clock rate of 1.3 GHz. This should be sufficient for the intended purpose of the device, i.e. reading books and watching videos.


The new Fire-7 tablet also supports Alexa Hands-free. This allows users to use the tablet for voice commands to Amazon's assistant Alexa, even when the display is off. Accordingly, the tablet can then be used like an echo loudspeaker, for example to switch smart lamps on and off.


In addition to the normal Fire 7, Amazon also presented a new Kids Edition of the tablet. The children's version of the device also has a faster processor, plus 16 GB of built-in memory, a child-proof protective cover, a one-year membership in Amazon Freetime Unlimited and a two-year "worry-free" warranty.


The new Fire-7 tablet with advertising and 16 GByte memory costs 55 Euro, the 32 GByte version is available for 65 Euro. Who would like to do without advertisements, pays in each case 70 and/or 80 euro. The new Tablet is delivered starting from 6 June. The Fire-7-Tablet in the Kids edition costs 100 euro and is immediately available.
