Amazon debuts latest Amazon Fire HD 10, with Alexa hands

Amazon's new Fire HD 10 tablet gets 1080p display, hands-free Alexa

Amazon has launched a new Fire tablet in the USA that offers improved features at a low price as compared to the previous variants.

Amazon said that Alexa hands-free will be available on the new Fire HD 10 via a free, over-the-air software update. The glasses, which would be Amazon's first wearable device, would be unlike the ill-fated Google Glass, which featured a small screen in front of the right eye.

Amazon is debuting a new feature called "For You" on its latest tablet, a personalise page that "makes it easy for customers to quickly get back to reading, watching, playing or listening-and to quickly find what's next".

"With a 10.1" widescreen 1080p Full HD display, fast quad-core processor, and up to 10 hours of battery life, Fire HD 10 is the flawless tablet for enjoying entertainment, including your favourite movies, TV shows, books, magazines, apps, and games.

The tablet comes with a quad core 1.8GHz processor and 2GB of RAM and you can choose from 32GB and 64GB of storage.

Amazon on Tuesday added a new tablet to its ever-expanding stable of hardware. It will come in Black, Marine Blue and Punch Red, and start shippingfrom 11 October. The device is preloaded with On Deck, with a selection of TV shows and movies already downloaded and ready to watch.

The tablet also comes with support for up to 256GB of expandable storage via a micro-SD card slot.

Pre-orders for the Fire HD 10 are now live with prices starting at 149.99.
