Amazon Fire HD 10 tablet now available with 64 GB of internal storage
Not a lot has changed for the Fire HD 10 tablet other than the new storage option and metallic silver chassis that deviates from the usual rubberized black surfaces on the existing Fire devices. The 10.1-inch tablet still carries the usual specifications including the 1280 x 800 resolution display, quad-core 1.5 GHz MediaTek 8135 SoC, 1 GB RAM, and 5 MP camera. The 64 GB model retails for 260 Euros or about $250 USD.
Amazon tablets all run on the Fire OS software that has its roots on Android. Thus, while the Fire HD 10 does not have official access to the Google Play Store, there are workarounds for installing the application and nearly any application designed to run on Android devices. Compatibility, of course, is not guaranteed as Amazon would rather owners download and buy applications from its own software and services instead.
In our review of the device, we praised the Amazon tablet's bright IPS display, good stereo speakers for the size, reliable wireless connectivity, and decent battery life. Nonetheless, the tablet omits many features in order to keep costs low such as LTE, GPS, NFC, higher resolution options, and better quality cameras.
