For all its added improvements - a Full HD screen, faster processor, twice the storage and double the RAM, the 32GB model is also a £20 cheaper than last year's effort, which also had half the amount of storage.

Internally, the Fire HD 10 has had an upgrade too. No 4G LTE option, sadly, but Amazon does throw in Dolby Atmos Audio support with dual stereo speakers. The refreshed Fire HD 10 also features 2 GB of RAM and either 32 GB or 64 GB of native storage, though a microSD card slot is there if you need additional space.

You have the choice of either 32GB of storage or 64GB, and it's great Amazon has ditched the 16GB version, which just isn't enough space when you're using a tablet that's specifically created to include movies and music.

What's especially interesting about this Fire tablet is a new feature that lets you keep Alexa on all the time.

If you want the best tablet, you should buy an iPad. The new flagship Fire tablet basically sets out to improve on everything that was deficient in its predecessor. With this new device, Amazon, for the first time, introduced Alexa hands-free on a Fire tablet, which allows users activate the assistant with their voices alone.

As is the case with the rest of Amazon's Fire tablets, the Fire HD 10 runs a forked version of Android that aims to retain people in the company's ecosystem by including features like "For You". This new page displays all of your content neatly with completion bars on the bottom of books, magazines and video covers to show you how much you have left in an e-book or a movie.


Amazon built the new Fire 10 HD with a goal of creating the ultimate entertainment device, Keith said.

Dim the lights or adjust the thermostat using just your voice.

The new Fire HD 10 starts at $150.

It will also be available in stores or online at Argos, Currys PC World, Dixons Travel, John Lewis, Shop Direct and Tesco.

"For less than $150, the all-new Fire HD 10 offers a handsome 1080p Full HD display, faster performance, more storage, and up to 10 hours of battery life", Amazon general manager Kevin Keith explains.

The Amazon Fire HD 10 (2017) won't be shipping until October 11, but you can pre-order the tablet from today on Amazon's website.
