When it comes to Amazon’s hardware business, devices like the Amazon Echo and Echo Dot always seem to steal the limelight. Amazon makes a whole lot more than just smart speakers though, and on Wednesday the company unveiled brand new versions of its two best tablets. The All-New Fire 7 Tablet with Alexa and All-New Fire HD 8 Tablet with Alexa will be released on June 7, but you can pre-order them right now on the Amazon website to guarantee delivery on launch day. These hot new tablets are better than their predecessors in every conceivable way, and yet they’re still insanely affordable, with pricing starting at just $49.99.
