Culture
Amazon has a $50 tablet, and it could be this year's hot holiday gift. I'm Bridget Carey, this is your CNET update. Amazon just released three brand new tablets, and the seven inch Fire model starts at $50. At that price, Amazon wants you to buy several as gifts, and get this You can buy them in a six-pack Buy five fires, get the sixth free. Didn't think we'd get to a day where you can sell gadgets in six-packs, but hey, here we are. The fire has a seven-inch screen, a quad-core processor, a camera on the back and the front. You can order a kid's edition of this tablet for $100, And with it you get a bumper case and a year of Amazon's Free Time Unlimited. That's a service that accesses 20,000 age appropriate websites and YouTube videos. And there's a two-year warranty to get it replaced if it breaks. Also new to the Fire family is the Fire HD 8 and Fire HD 10. You're getting better screens and Dolby audio with these models, and they come in more colors beyond the basic black. The HD 8 comes in pink, blue, and orange and it starts at $150. The ten inch model comes in white and it cost $230. All of these tablets running Amazon special operating system based on Android and you're likely need to buy an extra memory card for more storage to save all your movies, music, and books. The cheapest models only have eight gigs of memory built in and that's not much. Amazon is selling the tablets now as pre-orders and they won't be delivered until September 30th. That's not the only new thing, Amazon refreshed it's fire TV box and fire TV stick. Both devices let you stream video from the internet to your TV, like Netflix. the box cost $100. And has brand new hardware inside with a zippier processor. It also supports 4K video, also known as Ultra HD. Of course you'll need a 4K TV to be able to see that higher definition. The remote can listen to your voice commands so you can search just by talking. And also ask questions like Who is that actor? Or what song is that? And it'll display the answer on the screen. For an extra $40 there is a gaming edition that switches off the voice control remote for a video game controller. The Fire TV can download and play Android games So the gamer pack also comes with a 32 gig memory card and two free games, Shovel Knight and Duck Tails. If you're looking for something more basic, there's a Fire TV stick. It's half the price at $50. It comes with a voice remote and you just plug it into the back of your TV with an HDMI port. They both ship in October. Now, even though 4K ultra HD video is hard to come by these days You can take your bragging game up a notch and buy an 8K television. Sharp is the first to sell an 8K TV, and this 85" beast can be yours in October for $133 thousand dollars. That's it for this tech news update, and there's more at cnet..com. From our studios in New York, I'm Bridget Carey. [MUSIC]
