Amazon has announced a new version of its 8-inch high definition tablet that not only comes with better battery life and more RAM, it's just £89.99.

The Amazon Fire HD 8 has an 8-inch 1280 x 800 display, quad-core 1.3GHz processor, 1.5GB of RAM and 4,750mAh battery to offer up to 12 hours of battery life.

It comes with two different storage options, 16GB and 32GB, and is capable of extending that by up to a further 200GB through a microSD card slot. Front and rear cameras are present, as is Dolby audio through its stereo speakers.

The tablet is pre-loaded with Amazon's proprietary Fire OS 5 system, which now has support for Twitch and Comixology, with the latter offering direct access to digital comic books as part of its pre-installed features.

All other Amazon-exclusive features are available too, including Amazon Underground, the company's free app store that gives users the chance to nab games and applications at no cost, even though they often come with hearty prices on other formats.

Four colours of the Amazon Fire HD 8 will be available - black, magenta, blue and tangerine - and it is now listed for pre-order on It ships from 21 September. You can find out more information on its store page.
