For a $150 USD, you can get one of the most fastest Tablet from Amazon! It is really weird to get a portable and impressive tablet for such a cheap price.
Introducing to you is the newly launched Amazon Fire HD 10 tablet features a 10.1-inch, 1080p display and it is available for preorder today in black, Marine blue and Punch red and ships on October 11.
It also arrives with a hands-free Alexa integration, first on their tablet, which means that you can talk directly to the tablet as you would an Echo speaker to access Alexa skills, no virtual button presses required. However, you can turn off and on using a control panel.

The tablet also comes with a new and improved version of Amazon’s Fire OS, which includes deeper integration with the company’s popular Alexa virtual assistant and smarter content suggestion based on watching habits.
Eric Saarnio, head of Amazon devices in the EU, said: “We’ve really worked hard to deliver a tablet from the ground up that’s perfect for entertainment.
“We’re growing year-on-year in tablet sales because we think we’ve landed on a winning formula, which is a combination of premium tablets at non-premium prices, focusing on entertainment and delivering tablets that the whole family can enjoy. The Fire HD 10 is our latest addition to the family.”
Meanwhile, the 64GB version costs $180 (£180 or about AU$226 converted) and both models have a memory expansion slot for microSD cards up to 256GB.
