In addition to unveiling a Fire tablet bundle that includes a either a Fire Tablet HD 10 or Fire Tablet HD 8 and the new Show Dock, Amazon has also made the new dock available for existing Fire tablet owners. The Show Dock allows Fire tablet owners to turn the devices into Alexa voice controlled powered devices similar to the Echo Show. Amazon has the Echo Show down to its lowest price of $150 right now. While Echo Show offers better speaker options than tablet with a Show Dock, the Echo Show’s screen is only 7-inches.
A software update to existing Fire HD 10 and Fire HD 8 tablets is due on July 2, 2018 that will allow these tablets to take advantage of the new Show Dock that can be purchased and shipped separately from the bundle option. Both the bundle and the dock-only option start shipping on July 12, 2018.
