Amazon's popular Fire HD 10 tablet is getting an upgrade! Set to be released on October 30, 32GB models of the all-new Amazon Fire HD 10 will debut at the same $149.99 retail price as its predecessor. That's a win for customers, as the affordability of these tablets is hard to beat. Pre-ordering one of the new tablets before October 30 will even score you a free game download of Minecraft for Fire Tablets, valued at $6.99. Minecraft is one of the most popular games out there currently in part because it can be fun for gamers of any age, and now you can see for yourself.
This 9th-generation edition of the Fire HD 10 tablet keeps the same 10.1-inch touchscreen display of the older models while packing in a new 2GHz octa-core processor and 2GB RAM. The enhanced model also boasts a battery life of up to 12 hours after a single charge in comparison to the previous gen's 10-hour battery life. You can choose between 32GB or 64GB storage capacities and expand the storage later with a microSD card up to 512GB.
The new Fire HD 10 also adapts USB-C charging technology, which means you'll need to start using USB-C charging cables to power it up. Of course, one comes with the tablet, though our list of best USB-C cables could help you locate one to power up your new tablet even faster. You can learn more about the latest improvements to the Fire HD 10 if you're still on the fence.
