Amazon brings updated Fire series tablets, optional keyboard and Microsoft 365 bundle
Amazon has yet again refreshed its affordable Fire tablet series and this year the updates are more visible. The top end HD 10 Plus and Fire HD 10 now come with a brighter 10.1-inch FHD+ displays with slimmer bezels as well as an optional Bluetooth keyboard cover.
The regular Fire HD 10 gets 3GB RAM while the Plus packs 4GB. Storage ranges between 32GB and 64GB with microSD expansion available on both. Amazon isn’t revealing the exact chipset on the new models but claims it’s an eight-core CPU clocked at 2.0 GHz which is the same explanation we got for the previous gen tablets. The Plus model also brings wireless charging and a soft touch finish on the back.
You can get both Fire HD 10 models in the new Productivity bundle which adds the keyboard accessory and a 12 month Microsoft 365 Personal subscription starting at $220. The HD10 alone starts at $150 for the 32GB trim while the Plus version retails for $180.
Amazon is also bringing new Fire Kids Pro tablets in 7”, 8” and 10” sizes. These come with the same protective shell as prior models in several color options. They all bring bundled one-year Amazon Kids+ subscriptions. The Fire Kids Pro 7 will go for $100, the Fire HD8 Kids Pro will sell for $140 while the HD10 Kids Pro comes in at $200.

Last gen had impressive battery performance, it's price/performance ratio was insane among FHD tablets. Wish they had QHD option.
