The 10.1-inch tablet is now available in a new Silver color option with twice the storage space for 260 Euros.

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.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
