It’s so cheap you can buy 6 of them for 11.5K
Amazon has unveiled the newest iteration of its Fire Tablet that’s so cheap, you can buy a six pack of them for just $250, or Php 11.5K. The new tablet, priced at just $49.99 or Php 2.3K, is aimed at media consumption, and because of that doesn’t sport the best specs. The 7-inch, HD tablet is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM and only has a paltry 8GB of storage, though you can bring that up to 128GB using a microSD card.
The new tablet will run Amazon’s Fire OS 5, and will get a majority of its apps from the Amazon’s app store. There’s a more expensive variant of the Fire, dubbed Fire Kids edition, that throws in a thick pink or blue bumper along with a two-year warranty that covers pretty much every situation that you can think of. Shattered screen, dunked in water, used as a hammer – Amazon will replace the tablet with a new one no matter what your kid does to it for free if you buy the $99 Fire Kids edition bundle. And if you missed it, it bears repeating – Amazon will be selling six packs of their tablets, which makes it an attractive option for people in the US (and anywhere Amazon ships to) who are looking to fill their houses with tablets.
