Amazon has made some serious unveils these days, including two interesting tablets: the 8-inch Fire HD 8 and the bigger 10-inch Fire HD 10. We must mention that the 10-inch tablet is the biggest tablet that Amazon has ever launched.
Even if the giant retailer sells a high number of tablets from 6 to 8.9 inches, this is the first time when Amazon has released tablets in these particular sizes. Now, the new Fire HD 8 ad 10 will be available for shipments starting with September 30. As for prices, the two tablets will cost 150 dollars for the 8-inch model and 230 dollars for the bigger 10-inch tablet.
As for design, they are made of glossy plastic and both tablets measure 0.3-inch thick. Moreover, the Fire 8 HD will be available in four colors: magenta, black, blue and orange. On the other side, the bigger model will be available in traditional white and black.
It is worth mentioning that the Fire HD 8, due to its sharp corners and bold colors, is probably a little similar with the Lumia 2520, a Nokia tablet. However, the smooth back panel feels pretty good in hand, but it attracts some unwanted fingerprints. Even if it’s made of plastic, Amazon declared that these tablets are pretty durable.
To be mentioned that the tablets’ screens are strengthened with Gorilla Glass, which is a good thing to hear. Moreover, they display content and video with a 16:10 aspect ratio and they are perfect for watching movies, due to their 1,280x800x-pixel resolution.
The Fire HD 8 and 10 also hide the same hardware under their hoods. This means that both are coming with a 1.6GHz quad-core processor and an expandable storage to go up to 128GB. Moreover, they are both featuring dual speakers with Dolby Audio technology and a 5-megapixel rear camera that has the ability to record 1080p full HD video.
To be added that both devices are running Amazon’s new Fire OS 5 Bellini operating system. This operating system is based on Google’s Android Lollipop software.
