I was able to touch the new generation 10.1 inch full HD tablet “Fire HD 10” (starting from 15,980 yen) and “Fire HD 10 Plus” (starting from 22,980 yen) scheduled to be shipped on May 26 as soon as possible. So I will deliver the impression.


First, I will briefly introduce the update points and features. The Fire HD 10 has a 2.0 GHz octa-core processor and 3GB RAM, which gives it 50% more memory than its predecessor. The HD10 Plus has a 2.0GHz octa-core processor and 4GB of RAM. The display is equipped with a 10.1-inch 1080p (1920 x 1200) Full HD display, which is 10% brighter than the previous model.

The body is 7% thinner and 8% lighter than the previous generation Fire HD 10, and uses a reinforced aluminosilicate glass screen. It is easy to carry and has enhanced durability.

The front camera is 2M and the rear camera is 5M. For business video calls, it also supports Zoom, Skype, and Microsoft Teams (coming soon).

▲ It is equipped with Fire OS that can display two apps that support dual screen display such as Facebook Messenger and Prime Video at the same time.

The only feature of Fire HD 10 Plus is the appearance of slate color (dark gray). Wireless charging is possible with Anker’s wireless charging stand (sold separately, 5980 yen). Also, when installed on a stand, the tablet’s Show mode is activated and can be used as a smart display equipped with Alexa.

Try a dedicated keyboard!


The “Mader for Amazon keyboard cover” (5980 yen) is a cover with a magnet-removable Bluetooth keyboard. Designed in Japanese, it is a product by Fintie, which has developed many smartphone and tablet accessories. It is equipped with a 500mAh lithium battery and can operate continuously for 400 hours.

It supports not only Fire HD 10 Plus but also Fire HD 10.

I installed it for the time being.

▲ Polycarbonate material coated with polyurethane leather is used.In terms of body protection, it has rigidity and texture that seems to play an active role.
▲ The lift-up hinge that raises the keyboard when opened.
▲ The keyboard part can be removed.
▲ I used it in combination with the tablet stand I bought at 100%, at a distance from the tablet.

In terms of performance, there were no scenes where the processing became heavy even while playing the Prime video, so I was able to concentrate on the work of typing characters (although it is work).

As it is a compact keyboard, the key pitch is 1.7 mm (actual measurement). In addition, the Fire HD 10 Plus body weighed 460 g and the keyboard cover weighed 629 g, for a total of 1089 g (actual measurement).


When I used it regularly with the Fire HD 10+ keyboard cover, it was unlocked. Fire HD 10 is unlocked by entering a PIN or password. This was very stressful for the author who got used to unlocking with face recognition and fingerprint recognition.

However, it is very attractive that this style can be realized from 21,960 yen (32 GB model of Fire HD 10 + keyboard cover). If you fully understand that it is a Fire OS terminal and the cut functions, it is recommended to purchase it as a sub device or for children’s education.

If you want to use Word etc. for work, “Fire HD 10 / Fire HD 10 Plus” + “Made for Amazon cover with keyboard” + “Microsoft 365 Personal 1 year version” is combined into one “Essential setExpand. You can purchase from 24,980 yen.
