Today, Amazon.ca announced that Fire 7 and Fire HD 8 tablets are now available in Canada. The Fire 7 features a thin and light design, a 7” IPS display with high contrast and sharp text, long battery life with up to 8 hours of mixed use, and 8 GB of storage with support for up to 256 GB of expandable storage—all for only CDN$59.99.
For only CDN$40 more, the Fire HD 8 offers a stunning 8” 1280 x 800 HD display with over 1 million pixels, a quad-core processor, up to 12 hours of battery life, and 16 GB of storage with support for up to 256 GB more—only CDN$99.99. Both Fire tablets are available for Canadian customers starting today.
Reach the right customers in Canada
With the Fire 7 and Fire HD 8, apps and games are at the center of the experience. The user interface features dedicated content pages for books, games, apps, videos, and music, creating an engaging layout that mimics the beautiful pages of a magazine. These magazine pages enable customers to discover new content without opening the Amazon Appstore, making it easier for you to reach new customers.
This optimized experience will help maximize the chances that the right customers – the ones who are more likely to convert – will see your apps and games. Customers will see content they are more interested in, and more likely to download. For example, with the updated and personalized Amazon Appstore, customers who have shown a propensity to play trivia games will be more likely to be shown puzzle and trivia games.
And thanks to their long-lasting batteries, once customers discover these games, they can play wherever they are – whether jumping on a plane or heading out on a family trip.
You can check if your app is available in Canada by reviewing the Availability and Pricing tab in the Developer Portal. If you don’t see Amazon.ca, you can add it by editing your app settings.
