Building off the success of its Kindle Fire tablet, which made it to market just in time for last year’s holiday rush, Amazon once again is offering an option for those looking to jump into the tablet space at a lower pricepoint. The next generation of Kindle Fire—Kindle Fire HD—offers even more functionality, new technologies, and an overall enhanced value proposition for those looking for a tablet this holiday season. The family consists of three versions: the Kindle Fire HD 7-inch, which features Wi-Fi and 16GB or 32GB of storage; Kindle Fire HD 8.9-inch, with similar features; and the Kindle Fire HD 8.9-inch 4G, featuring a low-cost data plan, LTE speeds, and 32GB or 64GB of storage.
Kindle Fire HD has two Wi-Fi antennas, which will offer better bandwidth and more reliability. In other words, you can experience a constant Wi-Fi connection while venturing further from your Wi-Fi hotspot than ever before. A faster processor and a high-end graphics engine add some considerable punch to delivering HD-quality content. Kindle Fire HD includes ads (in the form of sponsored screensavers), but with new features such as Whispersync for Voice, which lets you switch between listening to and reading an ebook, and free cloud storage for Amazon content, we think you’ll like the changes Amazon has made to its lineup.
Amazon is making a statement with its entire next-gen Kindle Fire family: You can have the latest and greatest without breaking the bank. Offered in 16GB or 32GB iterations, Kindle Fire HD has new antiglare technology, impressive Dolby Digital Plus sound technology, and a zippy 1.2-Ghz dual-core processor, all of which make the device fitting for the category access on the go. Starting at $199.
