Users can scroll down to see "Try this next", a recommendations hub where Amazon suggests books, films, and other items they might want to purchase. However, Amazon are looking to pick up from where Google left off according to the Financial Times, and are reportedly working on their own Alexa smart glasses.
Encouraged by the completely unexpected popularity of the original Echo device, Amazon expanded the lineup with Dot, Tap, Look and Show derivations, also bringing Alexa support to the full range of affordable Fire slates.
Though the lack of a screen and camera would seem to neuter the glasses, dropping them would dramatically improve its battery life. A more expensive model with 64 GB of storage will also be available, and both will support expandable memory via microSD card up to 256 GB. Plus, enjoy free unlimited cloud storage for all Amazon content and photos taken with Fire tablets. The optics remain the same as last time, with a front facing HD camera and a rear-facing 5MP camera. The tablet is said to offer up to 10 hours of battery life and comes with 2GB of RAM.
Alexa hands-free - Just ask Alexa to play a song, pause a movie, read audiobooks, answer questions, show your calendar, control your smart home, and more on your Fire tablet.
Pre-orders for the Fire HD 10 are now live with prices starting at 149.99.
Their device is unlikely to replicate the heads up display of the Google Glass and its onboard camera, however. Watch downloaded videos anywhere with a Prime membership or Netflix plan. The previous iteration of Amazon's 10-inch tablet, released in 2015, cost $230. But, its enhanced integration into the new Fire HD 10 makes the company highly capable of influence users of Apple's Siri and Google Assistant. Color options include black, marine blue and punch red.
