This is one of the best cheap tablets you can buy and now it includes twice the storage, allows you to use Alexa without pushing a button and it comes in three new colors. There is also a deal that helps cut the cost even further if you pre-order.

Amazon also offers a new Fire 7 Kids edition that comes with a super-protective case and a two year worry free guarantee that will replace a broken tablet no questions asked. This version comes with Amazon FreeTime Unlimited, but you can add it to any of these tablets.

Hands free Alexa support isn’t brand new, but if you’re rocking an old model this is a nice upgrade. This lets you use the Amazon Fire 7 tablet like an Echo Dot to ask Alexa to play music, a audiobook, start a movie, check the weather or get the score of a game — almost anything you can use Alexa for on an Echo.

There is a new faster processor in this model, It’s a Quad Core 1.3GHZ processor with a faster core and more memory bandwidth than the version it replaces. It also comes with 1GB of RAM. There are three new colors; Sage, Plum and Twilight Blue.

Like the previous model, you can add more storage with a micro SD card. That’s the cheapest way to make sure there is enough room for movies and apps that you want to download for watching offline.

$49.99 from Amazon

The 2019 Amazon Fire 7 tablet with Alexa offers a great value to users at $50 with Special Offers. It's very hard to find a name brand tablet with good reviews, regular software updates and a plethora of accessories under $50. 

At times you can even buy the Fire 7 tablet on a monthly payment plan of $10 a month if you prefer to spread out the purchase to make it more affordable. This is not an option we see from other budget tablet makers. Amazon offers this right now for the launch of the new model, and also typically offers it during the holidays.

Instead of running a very old version of Android and cutting lots corners like we see with many cheap tablets, Amazon delivers a good tablet that's actually worth more than you pay for it. Amazon claims this tablet is more durable in drop tests than the iPad and twice as durable as the iPad mini.

The Special Offers help keep the price down, as does the fact that Amazon is hoping you buy a lot of stuff from them using the Fire 7 tablet, but you still get a lot of value for $49.99.
