Amazon today is announcing its all-new Fire HD 10 and Fire HD 10 Plus tablets. Amazon says these new devices will offer powerful performance, a brighter HD display, updated design, and with the Pro version comes a detachable keyboard case.
All-New Fire HD 10 and Fire HD 10 Plus
The new Fire HD 10 starts at 149.99 for the 32GB version and the Fire HD 10 Plus starts at $179.99. Both are available for pre-order today. They will come in Black, Denim, Lavendar, and Olive colors.
“Our best tablets just keep getting better. The new Fire HD 10 is brighter, thinner, and lighter, with an octa-core processor for fast and responsive performance, 50% more RAM, and all-day battery life—and is still only $149.99,” said Kevin Keith, vice president, Amazon Devices. “Plus, we added new apps, features, and accessories, including a Productivity Bundle with the Fire HD 10, a Microsoft 365 Personal subscription, and a detachable keyboard case, to help you get more done.”
The new tablets are faster with an octa-core 2.0 GHz processor and 3GB of RAM. That amounts to 50% more RAM than the previous version.
