Amazon announces all-new Fire HD 10 Tablet with Hands-Free Alexa

http://www.aftvnews.com/amazon-annou...ds-free-alexa/

Nice upgrade at a lower price. Pondering 64GB or 32GB.

How come all the tablets say ALL-NEW? Marketing scheme? I hardly thing the 8" one with 15,000 reviews is all new.

At a real quick glance, faster processor, more RAM, higher screen resolution...

There is more info and discussion in the news thread...

Alexa hands-free
Faster processor
Twice the RAM
Higher resolution screen
Starts out at 32Gb of storage instead if 16
MicroSD slot oops!
Wireless 802.11ac support

Other than that, you're right ... they're nearly identical!

I too have the original - it makes a wonderful media streaming device. I load up an SD card with movies.

Just give them ownership of the voice recognition company and almost 5 years and they can voice control their high power tablet(s).

We (the Kindle developer's corner) have had speaker independent, large vocabulary, voice recognition for the e-ink Kindle Touch (and the K3) for only 4-1/2 years now:

Which turned out to not be one of our most popular after market add-ins. . . . .
So Amazon will have to turn up the marketing hype if they expect to sell a lot of those devices.

I doubt very highly they'll need to tweak their hype machine in the slightest to sell a ridiculous amount of these devices.

Interest in a do-it-yourself third-party addon says very little about what kind of interest a turn-key solution might generate. DIYers aren't their target demographic.

Even people who want to be a generic tablet aren't really their target demographic; these are sold first and foremost for consumption of Amazon content.

If I remember right the KFHD10 was promoted as a great device for reading comics. My comics reading days are several decade behind me now, but I've found it works very well for that.
