Amazon is revamping its range of tablets and is launching a new Fire HD 10. The latest Android tablet in the series has some improvements on board, but like its predecessors, it is sold at a reasonable price. You just have to pay € 149.99 to get started. In return, you get a fairly well-equipped tablet that Amazon describes as a multimedia device, now finally with USB-C on board. However, no high-end hardware is expected, the published datasheet also reveals:

- New octa-core processor with 2.0 GHz and 2 GB of RAM to seamlessly switch between applications, watching movies and browsing the Internet.
- Up to twelve hours of battery life with mixed use.
- With a 32 or 64 GB storage option, which can be expanded up to 512 GB with a microSD card, the Fire HD 10 offers more storage than any other Fire tablet. Tablet can be included, unlimited cloud storage at no additional cost.

- Dolby Atmos Audio: Stereo speakers optimally tuned for high-quality sound.

- Alexa hands-free: allows you to control video or music playback, launch applications, and retrieve news, sports scores, or weather forecasts, simply with your voice, even when the screen is in standby mode.
