Did anyone else notice it ONLY has a 90 Day Warranty..... NONE of the NEW Tablets for 2017 have a Years Warranty! Guessing why so Cheap. At 10 months my 1st Fire HD 10 Broke.... Many others also Broke over time with use!

The new Fire 10 DOES have a one year limited warranty. The others do not.

Yes they changed it.... IF I could figure out how to post the pic I took I will. Not that it matters. Just Beware when you Order..

In the UK all fires have a 1 years warranty but I'm hoping to get mine from John Lewis who offer a 2 year warranty as standard.

Consumer rights are much more generous in the EU than the US. A product has to be replaced or repaired in a period that would be considered "reasonable" for the lifespan of that product. A manufacturer can quote a specific time for a warranty, but that has no legal force.

Can someone please tell me what purpose a Lock Screen serves on an add-free Kindle Fire with no passcode set?

Why would anyone (with the exception of those who've opted in to ads) need to Swipe to Unlock an unlocked device?!

Even in stock Android, no passcode should automatically equal no lockscreen. But at least you CAN disable swipe-to-unlock on Android (even though you shouldn't need to).

I have not yet opted out of ads on my new Fire 10, but have been considering it. Are you saying that if one opts out of ads, and do not have a password enabled, that you still must swipe? That is certainly not the way it works on kindle ereaders. If that is the case, then I will just stick with the ads.

Yep. No ads here, no passcode ... and I still have to swipe (and no option in settings to disable it that I can find). It's one of the dumbest things I've ever seen.

How bizarre. Will keep my $15 then. Thanks. Any clue if all Fire tablets are like this, or is it just the new Fire 10?

I don't get it either. You get used to seeing the "all new" label and you don't immediately recognize something that *really* is "all new." It seems self-defeating to me.

My kids' three "new" (used) tablets all have lock screens, even though they're ad-free. These are the Fire 7 (non-HD) 2015 version (original cheap ones).

It's nice. It's better than previous version in most ways, more memory, faster CPU, higher resolution, longer battery life, though the screen isn't as bright. That's not a big issue, though.

Can you have two columns in landscape in the Kindle reader app? I know that you can't on the HD 8, but it seems a necessity to be able to read in landscape on a 10 inch tablet.

Yes, you can. I don't use it, since I like nice, big text, but the option is there.
