Amazon has announced that its Fire 7 and Fire HD 8 Tablets are now available in Canada through Amazon.ca. The tablets were previously only available in the U.S. At a cost of $59.99 CAD, the Fire 7 Tablet features a 7-inch, up to eight hours of mixed use battery life and 8 GB of storage (with support for up to 256 GB of expandable storage). A 16GB model is available for $79.99. The Fire HD 8 Tablet, meanwhile, retails for $99.99 and sports an 8-inch HD display, a quad-core processor, up to 12 hours of battery life and 16 GB of storage (with support for up to 256 GB of expandable storage). A 32GB model is available for $129.99. Both tablets feature a Quad-core 1.3 GHz processor, front- and rear-facing cameras and support free, unlimited cloud storage from Amazon for all photos taken on Fire devices.
“We think customers should expect more from their tablet—better hardware, more features, access to great content—but shouldn’t have to pay a premium for it,” said Kevin Keith, general manager of Amazon devices in a press statement. “Both tablets are an incredible value we think Canadian customers will love.”
