Amazon announces a new $50 tablet that it's selling in six-packs for a discount

Amazon is launching a new super-cheap Fire tablet that it says combines a rock-bottom price with high-quality specs that are unprecedented in the "budget" tablet category. 

Called simply Fire tablet, the new device costs only $49.99 and Amazon will sell six-packs for $250, meaning that when you buy your tablets like you'd buy your beer, you'll get one for free.
"It was definitely inspired by PBR," an Amazon exec joked at the company's briefing for the product.
