The competition to provide ever smaller devices is fierce but Amazon is game, making its latest 8-inch tablets about as sleek as possible. Indeed, Amazon last week introduced four all-new versions of its Fire HD tablets.

These next-gen tablets are refreshed takes on the Fire HD 8, Fire HD 8 Plus, Fire HD 8 Kids Pro, and Fire HD 8 Kids. Available for pre-order now, the new tablets are priced as low as $100 with at least 32GB internal storage.

The Fire HD 8 is available in Black, Denim, and Rose colors while the Fire HD 8 Plus comes in a dimpled finish in Gray for $20 more, or $120. What’s the difference between the two? Read on to learn more.

As we’ve seen in Fire tablets over the years, there’s a ton of content available through apps and services, including Disney+, Netflix, Hulu, HBO Max, and (of course) Amazon. Specifically, there’s Amazon Prime Video, Amazon Music, Amazon Photos, and plenty of Alexa integration, too.

Amazon also has a pair of new Fire HD 8 models for children, too, in the form of the Fire HD 8 Kids and Fire HD 8 Kids Pro.
