The twist with the Fire HD 10 is the introduction of hands-free Alexa, which can be toggled on and off via the notification pane. (A full review is forthcoming.) But if you're looking for a full-powered tablet at a low price, the new Fire tablet could be worth a look.
More storage-The most storage available on a Fire tablet with options for 32GB or 64GB, and support for up to 256GB of expandable storage via microSD. It features dual stereo speakers powered by Dolby that provide 360-degree sound and offers up to nine hours of playback.
Few tablets boast a quality full HD screen for £150, let alone robust build quality and the backing of one of the biggest names in tech.
Faster performance-Quad-core processor with up to 1.8 GHz and 2GB of RAM-2x the RAM and 30% faster than the previous generation Fire HD 10-delivering quick app launches, smooth videos and games, and great overall performance. The front-facing HD camera and 5MP rear-facing cameras remain unchanged but are adequate for video calls and some light video recording (up to 1080p), if not still photography. You can use Alexa for any objective you might typically use the personal assistant on an Amazon Echo, including controlling your house or checking the weather.

Amazon won't say whether hands-free Alexa will make its way to other Fire devices, but given it brought Alexa over to the Fire 5 after launching with the Fire 8 and Fire 7, it's more than likely. Along with audio-based responses, the tablet will display information, like weather and calendar appointments, on special cards on the screen like the Echo Show speaker introduced earlier this year.
