Amazon has updated its popular range of Android-based Fire HD 10 tablets and launched a new line of Fire Kids Pro tablets. The new Fire 10 HD devices feature more RAM, improved performance, brighter displays, and are available in a variety of colors.
Amazon has been making and selling its own Fire-branded tablets for several years now, relying on very attractive prices to lure users into signing up for its services like Amazon Prime and Amazon Music.
The Fire HD 10 (starting at $150) and Fire HD 10 Plus (starting at $180) tablets feature a «new» but unspecified 2.0GHz octa-core processor that should provide improved system and graphics performance. The new variant of the regular Fire HD 10 model is equipped with 3GB of RAM, while the Fire HD Plus model has 4GB of RAM, both models come with 32GB or 64GB of storage. Both models also get a 10 percent brighter display and support for Dolby Atmos audio. The Fire HD 10 Plus also received a premium finish and wireless charging.
The new Fire Kids Pro tablets come in several flavors, including the Fire 7 Kids Pro (starting at $100), Fire HD 8 Kids Pro (starting at $140), and Fire HD 10 Kids Pro (starting at $200), which come with a slim protective cover. They are designed for children aged 6 to 12 and are equipped with a new, more «adult» screen. There is also access to a parent-controlled expanded Amazon Kids+ content section and a digital store with apps including Disney+, Minecraft and Spotify. Hardware specifications are otherwise similar to existing non-«Pro» Fire Kids tablets.
