Amazon’s Fire is more colorful and roomier than ever


Today, Amazon upgraded its cheapest tablet with new colors and more storage.


The Fire, which Amazon launched last year with a very low price tag, is now available in four colors — blue, magenta, tangerine, and the preexisting black. Each color option can be had in the 8GB model or the new 16GB model.

While Amazon is charging $69 for the 16GB model, the 8GB model is still priced at $49. If you’re getting the Kids Edition of the Fire, the online retailer is giving additional storage there as well for $119.

Outside of colors and storage, it’s the same Fire the world bought most during the holidays.
