Kindle Fire HD 8.9" 4G LTE Wireless

Amazon is competing with Apple, Google and other technology companies for a piece of the booming mobile-device market. In order to remain competitive Amazon offers a range of sizes and features for Prime-oriented tablet shoppers.

On the high level the Kindle Fire HD 8.9″ 4G (32 GB $499, 64GB $599) delivers rich color and deep contrast from every angle, with an advanced polarizing filter and custom anti-glare technology. Most tablet displays are made up of two pieces of glass – an LCD on the bottom and a touch sensor on the top, separated by an air gap. With an air gap, light reflects off of every surface as it passes through from the front, creating multiple distracting reflections that reduce display contrast. Kindle Fire HD solves this air gap problem by laminating the touch sensor and the LCD together into a single layer of glass, creating a display that’s easy to view, even in overhead light. $499 now gets you a large-screen HD tablet with a stunning 8.9″ display, exclusive Dolby audio, dual stereo speakers, the fastest Wi-Fi, ultra-fast 4G LTE wireless. On the lower level Kindle Fire HD 8.9″ is also available in a Wi-Fi only model for $299 and the Kindle Fire HD is just $199. ❚ Flattr this
