New Amazon Fire tablet goes through FCC approval

A new tablet that appears to be made by Amazon has just gone through FCC approval with model number and FCC ID 2AWRO-8768, as spotted by TabletMonkeys via Liliputing. Of course, there is nothing explicitly labeling this as a Fire tablet, but it certainly has all the usual signs of being one. While the Fire 7 tablet is the oldest one in Amazon’s linup and the most likely model that will be updated next, there is actually compelling evidence that this is actually a new Fire HD 10, even though one was just released last year.

That same remote has now passed through FCC approval in the US, under FCC ID 2AYT9-7426.

A new FCC filing from Google is likely not a new Chromecast and here’s why

A new device from Google just passed through the FCC yesterday, as spotted by Liliputing, MySmartPrice, and many others.

Janko Roettgers, a reporter at Protocol, first spotted the remote’s FCC listing and determined it to be a Fire TV remote. Brazilian blogger Everton Favretto actually spotted the same remote in a filling with the Brazilian regulatory office at the end of last year. It wasn’t until earlier this month that he found the same remote in a listing with Japan’s regulatory office, found here, which included the image seen above. Read more ›
