Amazon is sticking to its guns when it comes to the Fire range of devices. Both of their new HD 6 and HD 7 tablets are based on previous models, but aim to be better, cheaper and more accessible than before.

The new 6″ Fire HD will be on-sale for just $99, while the slightly larger 7″ version will be on-sale for $139. Both of them will have quad-core processors in some capacity, but it’s not known what these will be clocked at, as of yet. One of the most intriguing things about the revamped Fire HD tablets is the range of colourful backs users can choose to implement. It’s not as varied as Moto Maker, but it’s a fun extra.

Battery life is set to be between 8 and 9 hours on moderate use and both have a display resolution of 1280 x 800.

Apart from both having rear and front-facing cameras, little else is known about the new tablets, but expect to see them out before the end of the year.
