8.9-Inch Kindle Fire HD Tablet Shipping Starts In US

The bigger and better Kindle Fire HD tablet made by Amazon was first showcased in September at a price of $299. Amazon has now started to shipping its HD version of Kindle Fire tablet in the US. Previously, the 7-inch (17.8-cm) version of Kindle Fire HD priced at $199 became available in September. The new 22.6-cm (8.9-inch) version is just 0.7 cm thick, and weighs 567 grams. According to Jeff Bezos, founder and chief executive, Amazon, the new Kindle Fire HD is the best high-end tablet anywhere, at any price.

Analysts see the new Kindle tablet as direct competition to the Apple’s iPad. On comparing the Kindle Fire HD with iPad, a 4G version of the former will come at $499, which is equivalent to the price of a basic iPad.

Amazon has said that its 4G version of the Kindle Fire HD tablets will begin shipping next week. “The Kindle Fire HD is a hot-seller worldwide since launch, even before we started to ship pre-orders,” said Dave Limp, vice president, Amazon. “We are hoping to see users enjoy Web browsing, e-mail, gaming, watching TV shows, reading magazines, and more on the large, stunning HD screen, with fast Wi-Fi and exceptional audio in the new Kindle Fire HD.”
