Kindle Fire HD Preorders Skyrocket!

 The long wait for what we called the "Kindle Fire 2" is over as Amazon has released three Kindle Fire HD tablets along with two Readers - the Kindle Paperwhite and a 3G version of the same name. Amazon claims that the Kindle Fire HD is not only the best tablet for its price but the best tablet overall. This is rather big claim and surely Amazon's new device should have the performances to confirm it.

 The first in the series of the new kindle tablet is the Kindle HD which is a 7 inch tablet with a price of $199 for a 16 GB model. Remember that its competitor the Google Nexus 7 costs $249 for a 16 GB version. There is also a 32 GB model of the Kindle Fire HD 7" and it costs exactly $249 as we predicted in previous posts. Check it out:

So what else does the Kindle Fire HD 7" bring to the table? Here are some of the features:
  • 1280 x 800 HD Display
  • Dolby audio and dual driver stereo
  • 1.2 GHz processor, dual-core
  • Dual-antenna WiFi (40% faster downloads compared to the iPad 3)
  • Unlimited cloud storage for all Amazon content
   And many other that you can read on our Kindle HD specs page.

 Joining the family we also have the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 inch device which is also something I am considering buying for myself. Apart from the obviously larger screen and a stunning HD resolution of 1920x1200 this device also has a screen that contains several amazing features that make the screen quality much better. Some of these are the polarizing filter and anti-glare technology.

 It has a larger dual-core 1.5 GHz processor which isn't as good as the Tegra 3 of the Nexus 7, however, it makes up for the gap with its Imagination PowerVR 3D graphics core.  Pretty much everything else we could say about the device will be related to its connection to the Amazon store and all benefits you will get when buying it. 

 These amazing offers Amazon will give to all those who buy the Kindle HD tablet is probably what is going drive the sales in the first place. The preorders are already skyrocketing and it appears that we won't just be order the Kindle Fire HD devices online, but rather Amazon will also have them in local retailers. A smart move I must say!

 For $499 you can also get the above mentioned Kindle Fire HD 8.9 inch tablet, but with stunning 4G LTE support. There is also an offer from AT&T that you include in the purchase as for one-time payment of $49.99 you can get 250 MB a month for 12 months along with 20 GB of extra cloud storage and $10 worth of Amazon promotional credit.

 So, are you getting the Kindle Fire HD or was this a disappointment for you?
