Prime Day will be here before you know it, but there have been some nice deals already from Amazon. If you want to keep up on the deals, we've talked about how to get notifications previously. However, Amazon's Woot is also getting in on the discount action, and Woot has some great deals in 8 and 10-inch Fire HD tablets that are on sale right now. The catch being they are not the latest versions of the tablets, though they are still new sealed box items. The discounted Fire HD tablets include the 2015 version the Amazon Fire HD 10 tablet. This machine has a 10.1-inch HD touchscreen IPS display, WiFi, and a quad-core 1.5GHz processor. The tablet runs FireOS 5 and has 32GB of storage for just $79.99.... Read more...
Amazon is giving users of the Fire HD 8 and Fire HD 10 the opportunity to repurpose their tablets courtesy of an upcoming software update. Show Mode, which will be available in a software update downloadable on July 2nd, in effect turns Fire HD tablets into a fully functional Alexa-powered Echo Show. That means that they will support hands-free Alexa to do everything from providing you with weather forecasts, to real-time traffic information, to controlling your smart home. In order to better facilitate this repurposing of the Fire HD 8 and Fire HD 10, Amazon is also launching the Show Mode Charging Dock. The accessory includes a case that attaches to the Fire HD tablet and an adjustable charging... Read more...
Amazon Echo owners have enjoyed the ability to place calls and send messages with their smart speakers for nearly a year. However, some additional members of Amazon's Alexa-enabled product family are also gaining the ability to communicate with friends, relatives, and colleagues using voice controls. This new tablet functionality is best integrated with Amazon's Fire HD 10, which allows truly hands-free access to make free voice (and video) calls, along with the ability to send messages. Placing a call is a simple as calling out for Alexa and speaking a contact name. If you have a Fire 7, Fire HD 8 or older Fire tablet, you'll have to first press the home button to initiate a call or send a message.... Read more...
Amazon is giving its Fire HD 10 tablet a much-needed makeover, and is doing so with some attractive pricing that should help spark sales for the company. The first big update comes from the tablet's 10.1-inch display, which has been upgraded to support a resolution of 1920x1200 (224 ppi) – this is a healthy upgrade from the previous 1280x800 display in its predecessor. But Amazon didn't stop there, it doubled the amount of RAM included (now 2GB), while the new 1.8GHz quad-core processor boosts performance of the tablet by 30 percent. Base storage has been doubled from 16GB to 32GB, and a 64GB SKU is available as an option. However, you can always rely on the built-in microSD slot if you need... Read more...
Amazon’s Fire lineup of tablets have for the most part offered a lot of features while skewing towards the value side with regards to pricing. This has led to devices that while durable, don’t exactly exude a sense of being “premium” tablets. Amazon is changing that today with the introduction of new aluminum enclosures for its Fire HD 10 lineup (to join the existing black or white plastic-bodied models). Amazon is introducing this premium aluminum body at the same price as the existing plastic models, with a starting price of $229. The 32GB model will set you back $259.99, while a new 64GB storage option is priced at $289.99. And as always, you can further expand storage (up to an additional... Read more...
Back in September, Amazon introduced a new line of Fire tablets. The revised lineup included a $50 7-inch Fire along with a Fire HD 8 and Fire HD 10 priced from $149 and $229 respectively. All of the tablets shipped with Amazon’s new Fire OS 5, which was developed under the codename “Bellini.” Today, Amazon has announced the first major update to Fire OS 5 and it encompasses three new features. The headlining feature is Blue Shade, which is designed to help make reading a tablet in bed a more enjoyable experience. Amazon explains that it relied on research studies which show that blue light can interrupt the body’s production of melatonin, interfere with our ability to fall asleep and even delay...

We were tipped that Amazon would be introducing a $50 tablet earlier this month, but we were left to speculate as to how exactly the online retail giant would be able to hit that price point. Well, today we’re finding out all the gory details on Amazon’s latest effort to push its services into the hands of more customers. The new entry-level Fire tablet, as we previously surmised, comes with a 1024x600 IPS display, hence why it doesn’t have the “HD” moniker attached to its name. You’ll also find a 1.3GHz quad-core processor with 1GB of RAM (Amazon claims that the Fire’s processor is twice as powerful as the unit found in Samsung’s competing Tab 3 Lite), 8GB of internal storage, and a microSD...
