Amazon has just launched its newest Kindle Fire HD 10 and the Washington-headquartered electronic commerce and cloud computing company secured the tablet's spot in the market by ditching its commonly plastic back for an all-metal frame.

The Kindle Fire HD 10 is not really a new player in the tablet arena and this explains why Amazon opted to give it the same moniker as its predecessor. However, since the device is a relaunch, the company added new specs and features to the tablet to strongly market it to the modern-day customer.

Digital Trends noted that the all-metal construction, which is the most noticeable upgrade of the Fire HD 10, is a remarkable modification because the previous iteration sported a rather cheap plastic back that totally disappointed buyers.

The relaunched version now has three internal memory options: 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. While the first two storage options are available in the plastic-backed Fire HD 10 units, the new 64GB storage variant only comes with the aluminum designed tablet. Interestingly, all storage variants support microSD cards of up to 128GB memory.

Other features and specs of the device remain unchanged, as per UberGizmo. The new Kindle Fire HD 10 still rocks a 10.1-inch 1280x800 display. It still comes with a 1.5GHz quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM.

Another unaltered facet of the tablet is its camera. It still has a single 5 megapixel, front-facing shooter. For a new tablet, this camera is a disappointment since it is only capable of taking grainy photos. Additionally, battery life is still the same, with both the old and the new HD 10 capable of lasting for eight hours on average use, according to Stuff.

The best thing about this relaunched Fire tablet however is not its cosmetic upgrade. It is no other than its unchanged price point. The 16GB still costs $230, the 32GB still sells for $260, while the 64GB is available for purchase at $290.

Amazon's new Fire HD 10 tablet is now available on its website. Amazon Prime users can still take advantage of the company's free shipping.
