Amazon launches Kindle e-reader aimed at children

The company's latest Fire HD 10 tablet features a new octa-core processor clocked at 2.0GHz that's supported by 2GB of RAM. That same crowd may find the Fire HD 10 a bit more enticing now; Amazon has updated the largest Fire tablet with a new CPU and a USB Type-C port.

The Fire HD 10 features a 10.1-inch 1080p display at 224 ppi, and audio is delivered in cinema style thanks to Dolby Atmos through headphones plugged into the 3.5 mm jack (though there are integrated speakers too).

It's rechargeable via USB-C (2.0) and boasts up to 12 hours of mixed battery life on a single charge. Once again, the screen is a Full HD panel offering 224ppi. It also comes with support for Picture-in-Picture which allows you to continue watching a video while surfing the web or doing something else.

According to Amazon, the new Fire HD 10 is 30% faster than the older model. It's available in four colors: plum, twilight blue, black and white. Amazon also says the tablet offers "enhanced Wi-Fi" for better connectivity. Both the tablet and the bundle are up for preorder today, with a shipping date set at October 30.

Mirroring Amazon's Kids Editions of its Fire tablet range, the new Kindle also has an extensive parental dashboard showing what children are reading and how often, alongside quick summaries and conversation points from the books to aid discussion and engagement.
