Most of the people who use tablets use it basically to read, watch a video or play some awesome game. Amazon got a firm hold on the reading and the watching entities with their new Kindle tablet. This legacy has continued and we have a much larger and improved version that Kindle, the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9. There is a smaller Kindle HDX 7 available too which released much before this one.


Design

If this tablet is ANYTHING, it is surely beautiful. It has a state of the art premium built and design. The symphony becomes more soothing as you hold it. A nice metallic built to compliment the amazing specification behind. Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 has sharp edges on the back in a a pretty different design take on a tablet. The power and the volume buttons on the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 are placed at the back which allowed them to reduce the thickness of the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 by a striking scale. This tablet is so light that you would be surprised when you hold it.

Display

The name Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 tells you the size of the display it has. The Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 has an 8.9 inch display. It holds a resolution of 2560×1600 pixels. The display is strikingly mesmerizing. It is really clean and sharp and why would’nt it is? It gives you some of the best video quality and reading quality on any tablet. I am truly a big fan of this display on the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9.

Camera

Camera is not much of a big significant feature of this tablet. Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 has an 8MP camera. Though it will give you a high resolution photograph it will not provide you with the cleanest 8MP pictures, actually not even the closest. Though the pictures are fairly accurate in terms of sharpness and colour saturation, the other high end 8MP cameras are just brilliant. Camera is not that of a deal on tablets either so given that it is pretty awesome for a tablet.

Software

The heart of the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 runs on the Android v4x Jelly Bean Operating system which has a whole skin dipped in a great Fire 3.0 OS which is purely Amazon. It provides you with a highly interactive software ecosystem optimized for everything Amazon. Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 gives you the best base for reading. The apps are fairly Android though.

Performance

There are no doubt that this is one of the fastest tablet around. Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 has a Snapdragon 800 processor which is actually a Quad Core processor clocked at 2.2 GHz with a supporting 2GB of RAM. Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 even supports LTE 4G. Sadly there is no NFC feature available. Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 is available in 16GB/32GB/64GB versions.
