Amazon has announced that it has updated its Fire HD 8 tablet. The tablet has an 8-inch display and runs on a quad-core processor. The new model offers 12 hours of battery life and 50 percent more RAM for better performance. The Fire HD 8 also offers twice the onboard storage (16GB or 32GB) compared to its predecessor, and supports up to 200GB of external storage via microSD card.

The Fire HD 8 also features Alexa, marking the first time that Alexa has been included in an Amazon tablet. Alexa allows you to do much more by using voice commands. Much like Siri, it can play music, launch games, read audiobooks, search the web and much more. The company is also rolling Alexa out on last year’s Fire HD 8 tablets through an over-the-air software update very soon. So if you wanted Alexa on your tablet, there you go.

The new Fire HD8 sells for just $89.99 to $119.99(USD) if you’re willing to accept special offer ads on your device, while the version without special offer ads is priced at $104.99 to $134.99. All of these are exceptional values for what you get, and a veritable bargain when compared to an iPad Mini.
