Amazon is upgrading its most basic Kindle Fire tablet today, if ever so slightly. The 7-inch device now gets three additional color versions you can pick from when buying one. Aside from the existing black model, it's now also being offered in blue, magenta, and tangerine hues.
What's more, a new iteration with 16GB of built-in storage has been revealed. The 8GB model will stay on sale for $49.99, while the new SKU with double the storage is priced at $69.99.
Everything else about the tablet has remained the same. This is still one of the cheapest slates out there, but do keep in mind that it runs Fire OS, Amazon's forked version of Android.
The Kindle Fire has a 7-inch 1,024x600 touchscreen, a 1.3 GHz quad-core processor, a 2 MP rear camera, a VGA front-facing camera, 1GB of RAM, and a microSD card slot.
Because you are still rewarding a company for not caring about its users. You buy a Kindle, you are promoting Amazon. They get your money for the hardware purchase, and the free advertisement when others see you with the device. End of story. No...
out of curiosity, if you don't like the encription disable, can't we just Install stock Android or say like cyanogenmod?
I know it's cheap, but can they do better on the colors? Seriously, just because it's cheap, doesn't mean the color palette have to be ugly.
