Amazon announces cheaper version of Kindle Fire

Alongside the introduction of the Kindle Fire HD today, Amazon also announced a refreshed, cheaper version of the original Kindle Fire tablet. The new Kindle Fire features a 7-inch display, 16 GB of onboard storage, an improved processor, and more RAM. The new Kindle Fire will be available for $159, rather than the previous $199 price tag for the older model.

The updated Kindle Fire doesn’t have many of the features that the new Kindle Fire HD’s sport.
