Amazon's claims have been on the money before, so we'd expect you to be able to use this tablet for a full day without needing to recharge.

Amazon is offering the Fire HD 10 in two variants: a base model with 32GB storage that will retail for $149, and a version with 64GB storage that will set you back $189.

Three colors are available: red, black or blue.

A screenshot on the Amazon Fire HD 8 tablet, demonstrates the Alexa experience. Its latest generation Fire tablet is not only faster and more capable, but also offers Alexa's service.

Last year Amazon brought Alexa, the brain behind Amazon Echo, to Fire tablets making it even easier for you to enjoy endless entertainment by simply pressing a button and asking.

Another feature enables small businesses to accept Tez payments directly into their savings or individual current accounts. Finally the much awaited UPI based payment and wallet application, " Tez ", by Google has been launched in India on Monday.

The Fire 10 is getting a complete overhaul on October 11th, with a quad-core processor, a battery that now lasts 10 hours, doubled storage with 32GB now standard, and a 1080p display. It's not as advanced as more expensive tablets, like the iPad, but has some compelling new features, including longer battery life (up to 10 hours) and faster performance for gaming and watching movies.

One of the new Fire TV products is a cube that has far-field microphones and a speaker, similar to an Echo Dot, suggesting it will include Alexa for hands-free interaction and potentially other voice-controlled functions, according to an exclusive report from AFTVnews, which also stated the new products are due out before.

However the tablet supports expandable storage up to 256GB via microSD card, which means you should have more than enough storage to cart around all of your favourite movies - whatever configuration you buy. For reference, the 2017 HD 10's widescreen display has 224 ppi (1920 x 1200 pixels), whereas the 2015 version had a display of just 149 ppi (1280 x 800 pixels). If you want to turn down the lights or check the weather, you don't have to tap the screen or wander within earshot of an Echo. Pairing this display with the Dolby Atmos dual stereo speakers, the HD 10 offers a great viewing experience for a low cost. That is going to be a welcomed upgrade for those of the previous Fire HD 10.

So for example if you like crime thriller novels, it's likely the For You section will recommend you books of that genre to purchase directly from Amazon's Kindle store.
