The next-generation Amazon Fire 7 tablet. Amazon

Outside of those consistent benefits, Prime members also get to take advantage of special deals and discounts. On the bright side, if you pre-order the tablet until June 6, you'll receive a free pair of headphones featuring Forky or Bo Peep from Toy Story 4 ($20 value). "For under $50, we're making it even better for customers with a faster processor and 2x the storage, so customers can enjoy even more of their favorite entertainment at home and on-the-go".

Amazon Fire tablets are known for being ridiculously cheap, yet capable tablets. It still has 1GB of RAM, the same 7-inch IPS display, and 2MP rear camera, though the front-facing camera is now 2MP, too.

Oddly, battery life isn't as stellar as it once was, with Amazon promising seven-hours compared to eight, but the device does retain the same £49.99 price-tag as its predecessor.

Amazon-exclusive features-ASAP, For You, X-Ray, Second Screen, Amazon FreeTime, Family Library, Blue Shade, On Deck, Prime Video downloads, and more.

This is basically the same device but it comes with a 2-year worry-free guarantee which means if you break it, Amazon will replace it free of charge.

The new Fire 7 tablet is available to pre-order now in your choice of purple, green, black or blue.

There's also a free year of Kids Unlimited which includes access to thousands of kid-friendly books, Audible audiobooks, educational apps, games, and videos-all hand-selected and age appropriate.

If you factor in the limited-time offer of a $10 voucher for apps, you are essentially getting a quality tablet for just $40! True, Apple's tablet is superior, but if you are just looking to consume media, why not get the new Fire 7 for a fraction of the price?

The Kids Edition version is also available for preorder right now and will begin shipping on June 6.
