Amazon is kicking off the week by introducing a new tablet.
The Fire HD 10 is the updated version of Amazon's biggest tablet, and the new model has a few notable upgrades over its predecessor. There's a 2.0GHz octa-core processor that makes this new Fire HD 10 tablet 30 percent faster than the previous model, and longer battery life means you'll get up to 12 hours of mixed use on a single charge.
When it comes time to recharge the new Fire HD 10, you'll do so over USB-C. Not only is that an upgrade over the microUSB port found on the previous Fire HD 10, but it also means that you'll get faster charging than before.
Amazon has equipped the new Fire HD 10 with a 10.1-inch 1920x1200 display, stereo speakers, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and 32GB or 64GB of built-in storage. There's also a microSD card slot that'll let you add up to 512GB of additional storage if you'd like.
Rounding out the new Fire HD 10's spec list are 2MP front and rear cameras, 2GB of RAM, and "dual-band, enhanced Wi-Fi". Amazon will sell the Fire HD 10 in Black, White, Plum, and Twilight Blue color options.
The Fire HD 10 is now available for pre-order starting at $149.99, and it'll start shipping on October 30.
Also launching today is the new Fire HD 10 Kids Edition. This tablet is loaded with the same specs as the regular Fire HD 10, but it adds a "kid-proof case" to help it withstand abuse. What's more, Amazon includes a two-year worry-free guarantee that will get you a replacement Fire HD 10 Kids Edition tablet if yours breaks.
Another perk of the Fire HD 10 Kids Edition is the included one year of Amazon FreeTime Unlimited. With it, you'll get access to more than 20,000 apps, games, books, and educational content from sources like PBS Kids, Nickelodeon, and Disney.
The Fire HD 10 Kids Edition is launching on October 30 for $199.99, but you can pre-order one right now.
Finally, Amazon today introduced the Kindle Kids Edition, a new e-reader that's just for kids. It's got a 6-inch e-paper display with built-in light, 8GB of storage that Amazon says can hold over a thousand books, and a battery that'll last up to four weeks on a single charge.
Like the Fire HD 10 Kids Edition, this Kindle Kids Edition comes with a cover to help protect the device as well as a two-year worry-free guarantee. Also included is one year of Amazon FreeTime Unlimited that offers thousands of popular titles, such as Harry Potter and The Boxcar Children.
The Kindle Kids Edition will launch on October 30 and is now available for pre-order for $109.99.
