Amazon has announced that they are now selling two of their tablet models in Canada. The Fire 7 is available for CDN$59.99 (~$47 USD) with 8 GB of internal storage and CDN$79.99 (~$62 USD) with 16 GB of storage. The Fire HD 8 is listed for CDN$99.99 (~$78 USD) for the 16 GB model and CDN$129.99 (~$101 USD) for the one with 32 GB of storage. Both tablets appear to not include lock screen ads, like their US equivalents do unless you pay $15 extra. The Fire HD 10 and the Fire Kids Edition tablets are not yet available in Canada.
As expected, Amazon has announced refreshed versions of their Fire 7 and Fire HD 8 tablets, as well as an updated Fire 7 Kids Edition tablet and an all-new Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet. The new tablets are good, but not dramatic, updates to the tablets they’re replacing. If you purchase any combination of 3 tablets, regardless of which you select, you can receive 20% off if you use promo code FIRE3PACK at checkout. Read more ›

These are the new Amazon tablets that passed through FCC approval a couple of weeks ago. Read more ›
