      Product information
      Enjoy all your Amazon, Kindle and online content anywhere with the Amazon Fire HD 8" Tablet.

      Read, watch and browse with Fire OS 5


      The Fire HD runs on Fire OS 5, Amazon's own exclusive operating system, which puts nearly limitless amounts of content at your fingertips.

      Finding new content that'll you'll love is simple as the redesigned home screen includes dedicated pages for finding books, games, apps, video, music, audiobooks and news.

      If you previously owned a Kindle eReader or already have an Amazon account, you can download everything you've previously bought straight onto the Fire HD.

      Read


      The Fire HD features a dedicated reading mode, which gives you an experience close to reading a physical book. You can enjoy access to millions of books and magazines without sacrificing your reading experience.

      Listen


      The Audible app has the world's largest collection of audiobooks, with over 150,000 of them waiting to be heard. Audiobooks are ideal when you can listen but can't read, such as car journeys, going for a run or while you work. 

      Immersion Reading is a new feature added to Fire OS 5 which highlights words as they're spoken, letting you read along with the narration for a more engaging experience. 

      Watch & play


      Along with apps for all the most popular on-demand TV services (including iPlayer and Netflix), Amazon Prime members can download shows to watch when offline - great for the commute or a long journey.

      All of the most popular games and social media apps are available to download from the Amazon Market Place, so you can stay occupied and connected wherever you are. 

      Slim and lightweight


      You can read and watch all your content in comfort as the Fire HD is impressively slim and light. It weighs a mere 300 grams and can be comfortably held with one hand for long reading or viewing sessions. The 8” screen gives a great viewing area without making the tablet too large to carry - great for slipping into a bag to enjoy your content away from home.

      Onboard and online storage


      If you've got a lot of content to store, expanding the onboard storage is simple thanks to the microSD card reader. It supports microSD cards up to 128 GB, which is more than enough for thousands of books along with films, music and apps.

      You also get unlimited Cloud storage for any content downloaded from the Amazon Marketplace. This content is available on countless other online devices, such as laptops or smartphone. You'll never without your books or media even if you haven't got your Fire with you at the time.

      Focus on your content with the impressively slim Amazon Fire HD 8" Tablet.

      Availability checker

      How and when can you get hold of your selections? Finding out should be quick and easy, so with just a few clicks our Availability Checker shows you:

      • Delivery dates, time-slots and prices
      • Local stores with stock you can collect from now
      • Local stores you can get items sent to for you to collect later
      To use our Availability Checker, simply:

      2. Click on the magnifying glass

      Order online and collect in store

      Sometimes you’ll want something even quicker than we can deliver. Or you can’t be in when our van or courier would arrive. That’s why we offer you the option to order online and collect in store.
      Subject to what you’re ordering and where you want to collect from, you can:

      Reserve & Collect – reserve online for free and collect at a local store as soon as you like. Once reserved, your item’s held till closing time the next day, to be paid for when you collect.

      Pay & Collect – pay online, and have the item sent, for free, from our warehouse to a local store for you to collect. Starting on the date the item arrives in store – which you choose in checkout – you have 28 days to collect it.

      1. Enter a town or postcode in the box on the product page for an item you’ve selected
