Amazon just announced a new Fire Tablet that’s only $50

Amazon wants to sell you their new fire tablet for only $50. Heck, you can even buy a six-pack for $250.

In the market for a new tablet? Or just one of the people who never made the leap because you didn’t want to dish out the dough. Well, Amazon’s new Fire tablet may be the answer you are looking for. After all, they’re only selling it for $50.

But as you could expect, the $50 doesn’t go very far. The tablet runs on the latest version of Amazon’s Fire OS (a souped up version of Android Lollipop) on a pretty decent 7-inch screen.

Under the hood, the tablet runs on a 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek processor, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of storage. There’s not much storage space, but Amazon Fire is also equipped with microSD slot for extra space.

 

If you’re into pictures, Fire features a 2 MP rear-facing camera for taking photos or recording 720p HD video. There’s even a front-facing camera, perfect for Skype calls with friends and family.

Although the specs on the tablet are pretty average, for $50 you can’t go wrong. Amazon is selling it so cheap that you can even buy it in a six-pack. Meaning, you buy five and get the last one for free. Pretty sweet deal if you want to keep a tablet in every room of the house.

The Fire Tablet is available for preorder starting today, and will start shipping September 30. Click here to learn more!
