Amazon is refreshing its line of tablets with four new tablets with more modern designs for adults working from home and children who learn remotely. The new line of Fire HD tablets offer respectable specifications for a low price that should make them perfect for any home.
The first is the new Fire HD 10, offering thinner bezels and a 10.1-inch FHD display which Amazon says is 10% brighter than the previous generation. Another improvement is the 3GB of RAM which should deliver more reliable performance compared to last year’s models like the Amazon Fire HD 8 (2020), including the new split screen feature for easy multitasking. Amazon also offers a more advanced version, the Fire HD 10 Plus, offering a similar design but with improved specifications such as 4 GB of RAM and wireless charging with an optional charging station. Amazon calls the Fire HD 10 Plus its “most powerful 10-inch tablet ever.”

Both tablets offer 12 hours of battery life, 5MP rear cameras and 2MP front cameras for video calls, 3.5mm headphone jacks, dual microphones, and Dolby Atmos audio. The Fire HD 10 Plus also comes with a productivity bundle that includes a detachable Bluetooth keyboard and offers a one-year Microsoft 365 subscription for 1TB of OneDrive cloud storage and access to Office apps.
The Fire HD 10 will start at $ 150 for the 32GB version and will be available in several different colors. The Fire HD Plus will be available in a smooth black and slate color and will cost $ 180 for the 32GB tablet alone or $ 250 for the productivity pack.
Amazon already offers some of the best tablets for kids, so it’s no surprise that it is refreshing its offerings for 2021. Amazon is launching the Fire HD 10 Kids with a 10.1-inch FHD display, 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of expandable storage, starting at just $ 200. Aimed at ages 3-7, the Fire HD Kids 10 gives parents peace of mind with safe, hand-picked websites for kids to browse, parental controls with Amazon Parent Dashboard, and a sturdy case.
The Fire HD Kids Pro is aimed at ages 6-12 and offers a filtered web browsing experience on its FHD display. Because this tablet is aimed at older children, it offers what Amazon calls an “grown-up look and feel”. Children can go to the App Store and request to download apps from their parents.
It also includes a slim case to protect it and comes in multiple colors like sky blue, black, doodle, and intergalactic. The Fire HD Kids Pro will also be available in a 7-inch size starting at just $ 100, or 8-inch and 10-inch sizes for $ 140 and $ 200, respectively. Amazon’s two new children’s tablets offer up to 12 hours of battery life and come with one year of Amazon Kids + for access to “premium educational and entertainment content”.
All of Amazon’s new tablets are available for pre-order today and will ship May 26.
