Amazon has added a new device to its catalog today. If you are looking for a resistant tablet with an unbeatable quality / price ratio, you may be interested.
As is usual in the North American giant, it has presented its new tablet by putting it on sale directly in its store.
It is the new Amazon Fire HD 10 (2021), a renewed version of the 2019 model, with double the RAM, a brighter screen and much thinner bezels, which give it a more modern look.
Amazon boasts that its screen made of reinforced aluminum silicate glass and its reinforced casing makes it 1.7 times more shock resistant than iPads. A nod to parents who have children at home who use the tablet.
At the design level, what stands out the most is that Amazon has finally reduced the frames that surrounded the screen. He has not removed them but at least they are much thinner, which gives it a more modern air, and also makes it less bulky.
It does not present any spectacular novelty, but it does improve in almost every aspect to the previous generation, maintaining the price, so it is worth taking a look at the hardware:
Specifications Amazon Fire HD 10 (2021) 10.1 inch screen with 1080p resolution. 224 dpi. Brilliant screen Processor 8 cores at 2 GHz Memory 3 GB of RAM Storage 32 or 64 GB expandable with 1 TB micro SD card Battery 12 hours of autonomy.

Records video at 720pAudio2 stereo speakers, headphone jackDimensions247 x 166 x 9.2 mmWeight465 gramsOperating SystemFireOSPriceStarting at 149.99 euros
The 10.1 inch 1080p screen maintains its size, but now it is brighter and has better contrast.
We do not know the processor model that it has since Amazon never says. Except that has 8 cores at 2 GHz. It can be the same as the previous generation, or a more modern one but with the same specifications.
Where it does improve notably is in memory, thanks to the 3 GB of RAM double the previous generation, which was only 1.5 GB.
It is sold in 32 or 64 GB versions, expandable with micro SD card up to 1 TB.
We also do not know how much battery it has, but it has an autonomy of 12 hours with standard use, and recharges in 4 hours with the included 9W charger.
I connect through WiFi 5 (802.11ac) with dual band (2.4 or 5 GHz), and it also has Bluetooth 5.0 LE, and USB Type C 2.0 connector.
It has two simple 5 MP (rear) and 2 MP (front) cameras, capable of recording video at 720p.
As always with Amazon tablets, it should be remembered that they use their own operating system based on Android, FireOS, so you can’t use Google Play apps. All apps, both free and paid, are downloaded through the Amazon App Store.
They are not all of Google Play, but the most important ones. Just today Microsoft has released Office and OneNote for FireOS, although we do not know if it is also in Spain. Here we have run out of the other more powerful tablet, Fire HD 10 Plus, which has only been released in the United States.
