We believe in a different approach to tablets—providing premium products at non-premium prices—and customers love it. In fact, we’ve seen our Fire tablet sales more than double year-over-year as a result,” said Jorrit Van der Meulen, VP, Amazon Devices EU. “The all-new Fire HD 8 packs more battery life, more storage, and faster performance—all for less than £90.”
