Amazon announced the rumored $50 Fire Tablet and it has a 7-inch screen.

Amazon has announced today the $50 Fire tablet. Unlike the rumors, the new Amazon bargain tablet features a 7-inch screen and not just a 6-inch one.

The new Fire tablet includes a 1.3Ghz quad-core processor, 7-inch IPS display, front- and rear-facing cameras, 8GB storage, up to 128GB of expandable storage, exclusive Amazon features and services, and access to the Amazon services for $49.99.

Amazon also offers customers the opportunity to buy Fire as a six-pack for less than $250. This tablet bulk deal saves $50. In the bulk deal the Fire tablet costs only $41. Walmart now has a big problem on their hands selling their no-name $50 tablets this Holiday shopping season.

“Today, we’re taking another step in our mission to deliver premium products at non-premium prices,” said Jeff Bezos, Amazon.com Founder and CEO. “The all-new Fire features a quad-core processor, is incredibly durable, and is backed by the Amazon content ecosystem, the new Amazon Underground, and Amazon customer service with Mayday Screen Sharing. Fire sets a new bar for what customers should expect from a low cost tablet.” 

Also available for Fire are new accessories, including a protective cover available in five colors—black, blue, orange, green, and purple—that can stand in both landscape and portrait orientations, for $24.99. 

The $49.99 Fire will start shipping on September 30th and is available for pre-order now on Amazon.
