Who knows, if Amazon is mimicking Apple or if it was their idea all along, but similar to Tim Cook's Cupertino company, Amazon is bumping up the storage on their Fire HD 8 tablet from 8 GB to 16 GB and from 16 GB to 32 GB for the same price. In addition to this welcome storage boost, Amazon will also upgrade your RAM to 1,5 GB and give you more battery life on the device, up to 12 hours, according to Amazon.

The Fire HD 8 tablet is a 8 inch tablet with a 1.280 x 800 Pixel resolution. It contains a 1,3 Ghz Quad-Core processor and runs on Fire OS 5, which is an Android 5 variant, that is strictly tied to Amazon services. We did test the tablet in 2015 and found it to have a good screen, we did not like the Fire OS restrictions though, the quality of the webcams and battery life. At least the latter should be better now. If you do not mind the Amazon services restrictions, you can get your hands on the Fire HD 8 from September 21st starting at $90 for the 16 GB version.
