Highlighting The Basics Of The Kindle Fire HD


The Kindle Fire HD is equipped with an impressive dual core, 1.4 Ghz OMAP 4 Processor, coupled with 1 GB of RAM. Current models of the Kindle Fire HD run on the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, and further updates from Amazon can be expected. The screen of the tablet supports a resolution of 1280 x 800, and in probably among the most crystal-clear touchscreens that you will see in today’s tablet PC market. Pixel density is decent, and the screen is capable of displaying a vibrant mix of colors. The tablet also supports a camera in the top-center section, which is ideal for online video conversations through the Skype app. In addition to the apps and software which are provided by default by Amazon on the tablet, you can also add further functionality to your device by installing additional apps from the web-based Kindle Fire Australia stores.

Pros and Cons

What the tablet does lack however, is GPS and NFC (Near Field Communicator). Having said that, these features may not be necessary for use in a tablet PC whose primary function is to serve as an e-book reader. It would suffice to say that what this tablet lacks in terms of functionality, it covers it up quite well in terms of easy-of-use and performance. In general, the performance of the Kindle Fire HD tablet is phenomenally good. Navigation on the tablet is swift, basic-level primary tasks are quick to perform, and game performance is excellent.

Product Variations

Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD is available in two distinct form factors – 7 inch and 8.9 inch. Other variations of the product also exist, with different amounts of storage – the 16 GB dedicated storage model and the 32 GB dedicated storage model. Also note that the 8.9 inch form factor Kindle Fire HD can host up to 64 GB of dedicated storage capacity, and at present, it only be released inside the United States.

Prices and Availability

As of present, the Kindle Fire HD tablet PC is currently being retailed at Amazon at an introductory price of $199.00 USD. This can go up to $599.00 USD for higher-end models. You should, however, note that the $199.00 retail price is only valid for purchases of the product with special offers. These offers include sponsored advertisements which will be featured on your home screen. Some people may find this quite irritating, and if you wish to remove such ads from the tablet, you will have to opt for the “without special offers” purchase, with retails at $214.00 USD. You can also remove sponsored advertisements at a later time, but Amazon will charge an additional $15 from you to provide you with the ad-free version of the user interface on the Kindle Fire HD tablet PC. Please note that consumers based inside the United States can avail a one-day shipping duration for the product through the Amazon Digital Services network. On the other hand, international customers can either order the product online, through Amazon and use a freight forwarder to deliver it to their home country or through online stores that deliver internationally, or purchase it from their local high-street retail outlets.
