However, it offers higher storage (up to 32GB) and storage expansion up to 512GB via a microSD card. It still has 1GB of RAM, the same 7-inch IPS display, and 2MP rear camera, though the front-facing camera is now 2MP, too. If you pre-order it before this date, you'll also get $10 Amazon Appstore credit to spend on apps, games and in-app purchases.

The sales will start on June 6, so it's less than a month left.

The new Fire 7 tablet is available in black, sage, plum, and twilight blue - the last three are new colors. This is an affordable, colorful plastic tablet with a 7-inch, 1,024-by-600 screen, dual-band Wi-Fi, a MicroSD memory card slot, a VGA front-facing camera and 2MP rear camera for video chat, and a mere 1GB of RAM. Next, the all-new Fire 7 Kids Edition has been built from ground up for kids and comes with a kid-proof case and, more importantly, 2-year replacement guarantee, as well as a year of Amazon FreeTime Unlimited.

The Kids Edition comes with the same upgrades as the standard version but also adds an adjustable kickstand in its ruggedized casing.

Fire 7 will also be available in stores and online at Argos, Dixons, John Lewis & Partners, Tesco, and
