We’ve seen Amazon offer some solid deals on its Fire tablets this year, but the biggest (and arguably best) slate has been left out. Now the wait is over, as the Fire HD 10 – with a 64 GB bumper of expandable storage – is currently on sale for $ 108, or 43 percent off its original price, as part of a Deal of the Day promotion. So if you are thinking of buying a budget tablet, act quickly.
Buy the Fire HD 10 Tablet on Amazon – $ 108
In terms of features, the slate’s greatest asset is its 10.1-inch screen, which makes it great for streaming. The 1920 x 1200 (224 pixels per inch) resolution is also higher than that of its smaller siblings. And while it doesn’t match the display quality of an iPad (2160 x 1620 resolution), you’d pay about three times more for Apple’s tablet.
In the Fire HD 10 you will find an octa-core 2 GHz processor combined with 2 GB of RAM, which is 30 percent faster than its predecessor, according to Amazon. Charging via USB-C, compared to micro USB on the older model, takes you from zero to full power in three hours with the 15W fast charger – included in the deal, along with a case.
Since this is a Fire tablet, those new to the Amazon wheelhouse will need to get to know its ecosystem. Prime Video, Amazon Music, and Kindle take center stage, and there are no Google Play apps. But if you want to stream, you can access all the major services (from Netflix to Disney + to HBO Max).
