With announcements from the likes of Apple and BlackBerry, Amazon didn’t want to be alone. So the retail giant announced new Kindle Fires to attract consumers. Amazon has a new low-end Kindle Fire and has upgraded the existing 7-inch HD tablet. However, it’s the 8.9-inch HDX that has heads turning the most.
Amazon will begin shipping new Kindle Fires in just under a month, and consumers can expect to pay $229 for the Kindle Fire HDX with 16 gigabytes of hard drive space. For a 64 gigabytes of storage, expect to pay at least $309, while shoppers will pay an extra $100 for Kindle Fires HDXes with 4G LTE connectivity from either AT&T or Verizon. It’s still much cheaper than the full-sized iPad, of course. Apple will have to take note if the company wants to put a dent in Kindle Fires sales, then.
The tablet boasts and impressive 1920 x 1200 resolution, which is just under that of the Retina Display on the iPad. The HDX still comes with a front camera with 720-p resolution for video conferencing, but you won’t have a back camera to shoot photos.
Reports already state that movies look great, and apps process quickly, too. This is thanks to the 2.2 GHz, quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM that Amazon has added to the device. While some phone manufacturers are already focusing on eight-core CPUs, Amazon is closing the gap.
When you unbox your new Kindle Fire HDX, Amazon’s new Mayday tech support program will show a human representative ready to answer any questions you may have.
