Amazon will ship the next entry-level Kindle HD tablet with a dirt cheap price point.

The second-generation Kindle HD will debut Oct. 15 for just $139. It boasts similar hardware to the previous version but with a speedier processor, CNN reports,

The new Kindle fire HDX will go toe-to-toe with Google's new Nexus 7 tablet.

On Wednesday Amazon unveiled the tablet along with two new high-end tablets: the 8.9-inch and 7-inch Kindle Fire HDX tablets,

"We have always wanted to build hardware that disappears and gets out of the way," said Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos during a press event. "When you're reading a book you don't think about the glue and the stitching."

The Kindle Fire HDX is a speedier, slimmer upgrade to last year's Kindle Fire HD. It comes in two sized: the $329 8-inch version version that ships Nov. 7 and the $229 7-inch version that shipts Oct. 15.

Both sport higher-resolution screens than the previous Kindle Fire tablet, with a sharper picture and more accurate colors.

Both boast a 2.2 GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM and a better graphics engine.

Earlier this year Amazon announced a $40 price cut to the existing $199 Kindle Fire HD. The move signaled that Amazon is ready for retail battle against Google's new Nexus 7 Android tablet, which went on sale over the summer.

The 7-inch version of Amazon's new tablet boast a screen comparable to the new Nexus 7, but its quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor provides a bump up from the Nexus 7.

It will run on a tweaked version of Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, the Examiner reports.

Google's new Nexus 7 tablet was available to US consumers starting July 30 for $229 for 16GB of storage, a slight bump from the first version's $199 price point.

It features a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 quad-core processor and 5MP and 1.2MP front- and rear-facing cameras, an improvement over the first version which lacked a rear-facing camera.

It runs Android 4.3.
