Amazon Introduces Kindle Fire HD, Packs 8.9-inch Screen For $299
Amazon took their time before coming out with a better tablet to take on both their rivals, Google’s Nexus 7 and Apple’s iPad. Finally, they took the wraps off of the next generation of their most successful Kindle Fire tablet, making some major changes to the system. Kindle Fire HDs are the all new tablets that Amazon brings to dominate the tablet market, yet again.
Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD family comes in two different models. A new version of the 7-inch Kindle Fire tablet and another bigger and better version with a 8.9-inch screen. As it appears, most of our previous rumors were proven wrong, and also disappoints us because most of us were expecting to see a 10-inch Kindle Fire tablet. But don’t worry, this new big brother also packs enough features to make your mouth drop wide open.
Lets talk about the big brother first. The 8.9 Kindle Fire HD has a stunning display with 1920 x 1200 resolution, polarizing filter and a laminated touch sensor. It gets powered by a 1.5Ghz dual-core processor along with PowerVR 3D graphics, front-facing HD camera and also a Wi-Fi that is 41 percent faster than the iPad. Tablet comes in two versions, a Wi-Fi model that goes out for $299 (16GB) and a 4G LTE model that costs $499.
7-inch Kindle Fire HD comes with 1280 x 800 resolution and with just the same specs as its’ big brother. Amazon claims it can run for 11 hours with single battery charge. And also makes a good rival for the Google’s Nexus 7. The 16GB model of this Fire HD costs $199.
Amazon has already started to accept pre-orders for these devices while cutting down the price of the old Kindle Fire to just $159. Amazon could make some big sales with this sales in the coming months, but not for too long because all these smaller tablets will be defeated when Apple brings out their smaller iPad Mini tablet.
