The New Metallic Amazon Fire HD 10

Amazon Fire HD 10
Amazon just announced last 2 June a new member of its tablet family. The Fire HD 10 now has a new metal option that costs the same as the plastic model, and there are also models that offer more storage than the original tablet.

The new metal design gives Fire HD 10 a premium look and feel, whereas the plastic on the original model was said to be "cheap-feeling."

Aesthetics aside, the latest updates to the Fire HD 10 includes a new 64GB option, which costs US$ 290, in addition to the existing 16GB and 32GB models. Users can expand storage up to 128GB with a microSD card.

It has a 10-inch screen with a 16:10 aspect ratio, which is better for watching videos than the iPad's 4:3 aspect ratio screen. The Fire HD shows 22 percent more of the actual video on the screen instead of the letter-boxing users will often find on iPad.

It also features two speakers on the bottom edge of the tablet for stereo sound, which is also a bonus when watching video content.

Amazon claims it's twice as touch as the iPad Air 2, but this has yet to be validated. Either way, it is suggested that users should be careful with the Fire HD 10, as it's still a slab of glass.

The new Fire HD 10 runs on Android, but it's hardly recognizable as Amazon added its own thick layer of software on top called "Bellini."

It also comes with a 720p front-facing camera for video calls. It also has a 1080p camera round the back, too.
