SVU is always

The new Fire HD 8 comes with an 8 inch HD display, a quad core processor with up to 12 hours of battery life, 16GB of storage, and Alexa.

The all new Amazon Fire 7 is boasted to be thinner and lighter than ever before while offering a longer battery life. The Fire HD 8 remains the same, but Amazon is cutting its price from $89.99 to $79.99. It will start shipping the new tablets on June 7. The price remains the same at £49.99 for the 8GB storage option with Amazon's "special offers", which is basically lock screen advertising.

As for pricing, this new Fire HD 8 is £10 cheaper this year too: at £80, and you can pick one up from 7 June. The Fire HD 8's display is also staying put at 1280 x 800 pixels.

While somewhat understandable, those without an Echo may miss the ability to simply call out "Alexa" without needing to pick up a tablet, particularly as the likes of Siri and Google Assistant support always-on voice commands.

As for the Fire HD 8, as previously stated, this device has already seen its refresh.

Amazon said making the tablets listen out for the wake-up phrase would have affected battery life.

Police said Haidri was in Mustung to attend ceremony at a seminary and the blast took place when he was leaving the area. A suicide bomb attack by Daesh in Pakistan's restive southwestern Balochistan province has claimed at least 25 lives.

Processing power remains the same from the quad-core 1.3GHz processor and 1GB of RAM. After all, the company has released a new Fire HD slate in late September or early October for pretty much the last five years.

The LED TVs, first announced during CES in January and targeted toward cord cutters, operate using the Fire TV OS.

And while the Fire HD 7 now supports dual band networks (the previous only allowed for one), it's still packing an 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi card.
