Amazon launches new Fire tablets

Both new tablets are also available as kids editions. Despite the size and weight shrinkage Amazon promises extended battery life: the Fire 7 can now provide up to 8 hours of mixed use.

First up is the Fire 7. The price is upto $80 with an extended battery life of 12 hours and even more RAM compared to earlier version. It basically has the same features as the Fire HD 8. It's thinner and lighter than the previous Fire 7 - good news if you want to read books on the train without getting a sore arm. Inside there's also a 1.3 GHz quad-core processor, and 1GB of RAM, quite low nowadays. Device makers that utilize the API will need to update products to support the new directive.

Fast Wi-Fi connectivity-dual-band Wi-Fi with support. Those interested can sign up to be alerted when the feature becomes available.

Amazon announced on Tuesday that its Alexa smart digital assistant will soon be able to read out notifications from any device with Alexa installed, including the Echo.

Alexa makes it easy to have your favorite entertainment right at your fingertips. You'll be able to turn them on or off with the help of the Amazon Alexa app. To get your notifications, you still have to ask Alexa to give up the goods, which makes news and weather seem kind of pointless since you could just ask for them instead. Fire devices offer free, unlimited cloud storage for all Amazon content, plus all of the exclusive features that customers love. Whenever there is a new notification a chime and green light will appear on the Amazon Echo, Amazon Echo Dot, or Amazon Echo Show.
