Of course, certain manufacturers prefer to take the road less traveled with a variant of Android, and this time around, we have the Amazon Fire HD 10 that has just been released. This is not the first tablet that the folks over at Amazon have rolled out, and hopefully it will not be the last, too!

If you have a smartphone with a camera, you have undoubtedly fiddled with taking pictures of everything from your face to your lunch. Moving just one degree to the right or left will change how the camera adjusts the lighting, making things look blown-out white, like shadow creatures, or in particularly well-lit areas, as if you had an entire lighting crew at your disposal. If you FaceTime with family, coworkers, and friends, your lighting setup may not always be what you would prefer. This is especially the case when you are dealing with different time zones, like my sister and I who have to coordinate California and Japan.
Many of us already own a smartphone, and it can be safely assumed that an accompanying device o go along with the smartphone is a tablet. After all, a tablet offers a far larger real screen estate for your eyes to feast upon, not to mention that it will also be able to let you watch movies in a greater level of comfort tan ever before. For those who would prefer to spend their screen time with something larger than that of a smartphone but smaller than a tablet, a phablet would straddle the line in between. However, some of us happen to lead lifestyles that are more “dangerous” for our sensitive gadgets, which is why there is a need for rugged devices to be up and about. It looks like TechFaith Wireless of China has filled this niche pretty well, having announced that it has recently commenced shipments of it ruggedized Android phablet into the European Union.
