For an impossible $99.99, you can get a 10-inch HD tablet with oodles of bells and whistles. Game, set and match, Apple. Plus: a super-fast mobile charger.
All that and Alexa, too
The current-gen Fire HD 10 offers some notable hardware specs, including a 1,920×1,080-pixel 10.1-inch screen, 32GB of expandable storage, a quad-core processor and stereo speakers.
It also provides hands-free Alexa, meaning you can control it with your voice, just like an Echo. I’m not sure how valuable that really is in a tablet, but if you keep the HD 10 paired with a speaker, well, it’s kind of like getting a bonus Echo Dot out of the deal.
Amazon’s new Echo Show is shipping this week, giving yet another platform for Alexa to exist on. The Echo Show is a lot like prior Echo devices in that you can control it entirely with your voice and it can hear you from across the room. But the Show is the first Amazon Alexa device with a screen, giving it a number of new capabilities. You can read our full review for more on what’s good and not so good about it.
