Tablet sales are dropping dramatically, there are analyst firm as IDC that talk about a reduction of 8 percent already this year, but we also have more negative forecasts about a fifteen percent are ‘ less ‘ for 2015. Amazon wants to revitalize the sector and recently announced three new models of the Fire line, seven, eight and ten inches, mostly cheap and without any particular pretensions.
The seven-inch model is the only currently available in Italy, only costs 60 euros and has a mediocre spec sheet: 1024 x 600 resolution IPS display, quad-core 1.3 GHz (unidentified), MediaTek to 8 GB of storage, Wi-Fi mono speaker, single-band and 313g for 10.6 mm thick.The front camera is a VGA, back from 2Mp should instead hold recording at 720 p.
In 10-inch, tablet, we test the model in 16:9 format that elevates the Panel resolution up to 1280 PX (1280 x 800) and offers some relevant technical solution. Particamo from Wi-Fi, a dual-band 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac performance, dual stereo speakers Dolby Atmos with definite(both on the left side) and two discrete cameras: front capable of recording in HD 720 p and 5Mp rear that records in 1080 p.
On board we have Fire OS 5, customization (extreme) Amazon Android OS Lollipop, a strict limitation if we are used to being ‘ googlecentrici ‘ and we base many of our operations on the GApp like YouTube, Maps or Gmail. In the coming weeks we’ll try this Fire 10 HD to get to know better this ecosystem, so to our review to find out if the bet of Amazon may have more or less followed.
