Amazon today announced an all new version of its flagship Fire tablet.

One of the most attractive things about the Amazon Fire HD 10 tablet has to be its affordable price tag.

The new Fire HD 10 comes in three colors - black, marine blue and punch red - each with matching protective fabric covers for $40. ( AMZN ) on Tuesday introduced the latest generation of its flagship Fire tablet - the Fire HD 10. You can use Alexa for any goal you might typically use the personal assistant on an Amazon Echo, including controlling your house or checking the weather.

Rather than having to hit a button to bring up Alexa, you can simply say "Alexa" to summon her. The feature won't be available by default for the initial buyers and they will have to download software version 5.5.0.0 to enable Alexa handsfree feature. It features a full HD 1080p display, 2GB RAM, a 1.8 GHz MediaTek SoC which is 30% faster than the previous generation, 32 GB/64 GB internal storage with MicroSD card support and HD video recording up to 1080p.

Battery life has also improved, up from eight hours of mixed use to ten, depending on what you're using the tablet for.

One of the new Fire TV products is a cube that has far-field microphones and a speaker, similar to an Echo Dot, suggesting it will include Alexa for hands-free interaction and potentially other voice-controlled functions, according to an exclusive report from AFTVnews, which also stated the new products are due out before.

"Improved Display - the new 10.1" widescreen Full HD display (1920 x 1200) with over 2 million pixels (224 ppi) is a significant step up from the predecessor's 1280 x 800 resolution. Apps seemed to load quickly in our limited testing and the connection speeds seemed impressive, likely thanks to the dual-band Wi-Fi support that's included.

This isn't the tablet for you if you're looking for a top-end powerhouse of a slate, but if you want something to read your ebooks on, watch the odd film and browse the internet, the Fire HD 10 (2017) could be a great option.

Alexa offers access to thousands of skills so you can play music from services like TuneIn, check your flight status with EasyJet, or order a pizza from Domino's.

"For customers that just want a really good, well-priced tablet that's primarily focused on entertainment, that's really where we've hit out sweet spot", Keith said.
