The new tablet comes with a 10.1 inch widescreen, 1080p display, ten hours of battery life, and Alexa hands-free capabilities. 32GB or 64GB internal storage options will be available, and the unit supports up to 256GB of additional storage through a microSD card. The glasses, which would be Amazon's first wearable device, would be unlike the ill-fated Google Glass, which featured a small screen in front of the right eye. Driven by a 1.8GHz quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM, Amazon says the slate is 30 percent faster than its predecessor. "Now, you can ask Alexa to play a video, show you your calendar, dim the lights, and much more-using just your voice". It will start shipping from October 11 and costs $80 less than the previous entry-level price of $230.
Amazon on Tuesday added a new tablet to its ever-expanding stable of hardware. Hands-free means users can ask Alexa to play or pause a video, set a timer, play a song, dim the lights, open a calendar, or show the smart home security camera, prompted exclusively by voice. The next-gen Fire HD 10 features an improved display, updated specs, and several new features. Should you forget to download your favourite show before you leave the house, On Deck has you covered with a selection of TV shows and movies already downloaded and ready to watch.
It will also present personalized recommendations from Amazon across a variety of entertainment categories like books, videos, songs and apps.
In the United Kingdom, the Fire HD 10 will be available online at Amazon, as well as in the in stores or online at Argos, Currys PC World, Dixons Travel, John Lewis, Shop Direct and Tesco.
