Amazon Brings Hands-Free Alexa to Fire HD 10 Tablet

GE Sol Price

"Stronger reliability - In direct comparison to Apple's iPad 10.5", Amazon mentions that the Fire HD 10 is "more durable", but not how much.

To date, Amazon's devices with hands-free voice control have been decidedly static. The shiny rear surface of the old Fire 10 has been given the shove, replaced with a hard-wearing, textured plastic that provides plenty of grip, without feeling cheap (or, at least more premium than the price tag suggests). With the Fire HD 10, consumers can now request information, play content, and control third-party smart-home devices using just their voices.

Kevin Keith from the firm's devices business said: "For less than £150, the all-new Fire HD 10 offers a attractive 1080p full HD display, plus faster performance, more storage, and up to 10 hours of battery life". As you'd expect, Amazon On Deck can make use of that space to download TV shows and movies for offline viewing while you're on a plane or otherwise disconnected. This update will begin rolling out on October 11, as well, so there is the possibility that your Fire HD 10 may not have Alexa ready when you initially receive it. The new tablet finally brings a full HD 1080p display which is something customers have always been asking the company for. The new flagship Fire tablet basically sets out to improve on everything that was deficient in its predecessor.

She continued: "I think [that] helped him to grow and evolve in a way that I couldn't do myself". Many cited the busy schedules of Jolie and Pitt as the possible reason of separation.

"We're growing year-on-year in tablet sales because we think we've landed on a winning formula, which is a combination of premium tablets at non-premium prices, focusing on entertainment and delivering tablets that the whole family can enjoy". One enabled, the handsfree mode will work by simply saying - Alexa "do this or that". That said, if you're heavily invested in Amazon, or just want a large screen for your Amazon media, the Kindle Fire 10 just became a lot more viable. This, the firm claims, makes the tablet 30 per cent faster than before.

Really, the only reason not to buy the Fire HD 10 is if you're not enamoured with Amazon services. You can even find out about the weather.

Again, the Fire HD 10 runs Amazon's own Android-based Fire OS, with Amazon's Appstore front and centre. Sure, Apple will sell you a 10.5-inch iPad Pro for $650 or more, if you think you need to draw handsome works of art with a $100 stylus.
