Amazon’s Fire Line is not necessarily known for their processing power – they are usually lower in price and provide a solid option for those who simply want a device to browse the web and watch videos Huh. But now, the company has unveiled its most powerful tablets: The Amazon Fire HD 10, Fire HD 10 Plus, and Fire HD 10 Kids.
The new Fire HD 10 has an octa-core processor with 3GB of RAM and 32GB or 64GB of storage. On the front, you’ll find a 1,080p, 10.1-inch display, which Amazon says is 10% faster than the previous generation Fire HD 10. The Fire HD 10 Plus upgrades the device to 4 GB RAM, it has wireless charging. And offers a more premium soft-touch finish on the back. Other specs include a 2-megapixel front-facing camera and a microSD card slot for extended storage.
The Fire HD 10 Kids offers the same specs as the standard Fire HD 10, but in a child-friendly case that should avoid most bumps and knocking.
To be clear, the new tablets will not compete against Apple’s iPad range, but with a starting price of $ 150 for the Fire HD 10, they do not. Even the Fire HD 10 Plus is a steal, priced at $ 180. The Fire HD 10 Kids cost $ 200, though you’ll get a year of Amazon Kids + and a range of parental controls.
The tablet offers some of the original parts of the original range, which you want with a few extras from the tablet in this price range. You won’t get anything groundbreaking, but those who live within the Amazon ecosystem will appreciate Alexa support and the ability to use Amazon Prime apps.
Software using the Fire HD 10 is also receiving some updates. In particular, Fire OS now offers a split-screen mode, which will allow you to use two apps simultaneously at the same time.
For those who want a tablet for productivity, there is also a keyboard case, which was specifically designed for the Fire HD 10 and 10 Plus tablets, connects via Bluetooth, and comes in at $ 50.
Generally, the Fire HD 10 is the best tablet in its price range. If you can afford a little more on an entry-level iPad, it’s worth doing it – but if you really only want a tablet for very casual use, the Fire HD 10 might be the way to go.
