Amazon today announced a bunch of new Fire tablets. It looks like they’re upgrading the Fire 7 and Fire HD 8. The new models aren’t significantly different than the old models, but they’re thinner, have faster processors, and should have better battery life.
I use a Fire HD 8 myself, and I like it quite a bit. It didn’t cost very much, and it makes a good ebook reader, portable stereo, and light Internet browsing device.
