Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD with 8.9-inch screen, LTE
 
Amazon introduced the newest member of its tablet range, the Kindle Fire HD with an 8.9-inch, enhanced HD display, improved Wi-Fi antenna, and 4G LTE capabilities, bringing in more heat to the burgeoning tablet market space. 
 
The Kindle Fire HD brings 1920 by 1200, 254ppi HD display with a laminated touch sensor for crisp and sharp visuals and a reduced screen glare when reading outdoors. There is also an HDMI output, Bluetooth connectivity that comes with a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor with Imagination PowerVR 3D graphics core to deliver fast and fluid performance.
 
The Fire HD model features a front-facing camera that comes with the build-in Skype video conferencing software for both 16-gigabyte and 32-gigabyte models, evidently intended by Amazon to sway customers away from the current darling of the tablet market space, the iPad.  
 
The new tablet device will now have a dual stereo speaker for crisp, booming, distortion-less sound, an improvement from the former model’s mono driver. The Wi-Fi connectivity feature now lets users to download and stream 40% faster, courtesy of the dual-band 2.4GHz receiver and dual-antenna, and MIMO radio technology. Wi-Fi models will be made available in the 16-gigabyte and 32-gigabyte models, while the 4G LTE will only be available with the 32-gigabyte or 64-gigabyte storage.
 
Against its rival, the Kindle Fire HD costs only $300, which is $200 cheaper than the baseline iPad. Fire HD variant with cellular data connectivity is priced at $500 while the basic iPad with cellular connectivity has a prevailing market price of $630. 
 
This new model joins Amazon’s the Kindle family of devices, including the updated and smaller 7-inch colour-screen Kindle Fire and the Kindle Paperwhite e-book reader device. This smaller Kindle Fire will likely earn comparison to Google’s entry in the tablet space, the 7-inch Nexus 7 which customers can purchase at only $200. The smaller Kindle Fire slate is priced at a much cheaper price of $160.
 
With the refreshed version of Kindle Paperwhite, Amazon delivers a black-and-white e-reader that is thinner, quicker in turning pages, and comes packed with a backlight support. The Paperwhite shed many buttons and ports except for the lock/unlock button on the device’s bottom and a nearby micro USB port to make an impression that it is a touch-only gadget. 
 
The Paperwhite’s real attraction is the e-book reader’s new high-contrast screen, improved pixel density for enhanced sharpness ideal for dark room reading, and a low price of $120. For variants with 3G, customers will just need to add $60.
 
Amazon brings to seven all the models of Kindle e-readers and tablets now available to its online store, but assures that it follows its own direction and philosophies when designing and marketing its devices. Prices may range from a basic $70 for the black-and-white-screen e-reader to $600 colour tablet.  Pricing in Australia may be higher than how the devices are priced in the U.S. or U.K.
