new Kindle Fire HD 10

Amazon announced the new Kindle Fire HD 10 is available for preorder.

It looks like a substantial upgrade over the previous Fire HD 10, which was kind of slow. The resolution has been increased to 1920×1200, which is excellent for a tablet display, and the RAM has been doubled to 2 GB. (The 1 GB in the previous model just wasn’t enough.) Additionally, the baseline storage is now at 32 GB, with a 64 GB option, and a microSD card slot that can handle up to 256 GB.

It definitely looks like an intriguing device, especially at its price of $149.
