The last Fire HD products from Amazon we featured were the Fire HD 10 and some kid-friendly tablets. The top e-commerce site usually introduces new Fire tablets in the second half of each year but it just announced new models for the entire family. Perhaps the company is taking advantage of this time when a lot of people are just staying at home. It is an opportunity to sell more of its products since millions are looking to be entertained.
The lineup now includes an all-new Amazon Fire HD 8, Fire HD 8 Plus, and a Fire HD 8 Kids Edition. All three are different in many ways although they all have 8-inch screens.

The $89.99 tablet is great for reading ebooks and magazines, playing mobile games, listening to your favorite songs, and watching TV shows and movies. Other features include Game Mode and Alexa plus Amazon-exclusive Family Library, Blue Shade, For You, and X-Ray among others. You can avail of two Amazon Fire HD 8 tablets for only $159.99.
