For those of you who love the Kindle Fire or are interested in buying a new one recently, the all-new Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9 is exactly the one you should look at. Launched at an extremely modest price of $299, the Fire HD 8.9, as the name suggests, comes with a remarkable 8.9-inch high-resolution display screen. It is certainly better that its 7-inch counterpart, giving higher output with its Fire interface, much smoother performance and quicker experience overall.
How is it different from the iPad?
While it may lack in comparison to Apple’s iPad in that it does not have anything like the App Store, the Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9 makes that up with a highly superior streaming ability and an extremely high quality output resolution. That makes the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 a highly competitive – in fact the best – media consumption device out there, especially if you are a member of Amazon Prime. It is available in 16 GB at $299 & 32 GB at $369 models with WiFi capability while its 4G capable models are priced at $499 for 32 GB & $599 for 64 GB.
The design for the 8.9 is much more comfortable & better than the 7-inch Kindle Fire HD. It’s weight at 1.25 pounds is lesser than that of the Apple iPad (third Gen) and the Google Nexus 10. The height, width & thickness of Amazon Kindle Fire 8.9 are 9.4, 6.4 & 1 inches, respectively. It looks pretty much plain with its grey colour & the bevelled bottoms, but is easy to handle as well as easy on the eye.
