Amazon Introduces New Kindle Fire HDX Tablets

Amazon has taken the wraps off of its new, supercharged Kindle Fire tablets, dubbed the Kindle Fire HDX. Available in 7- and 8.9-inch models, the Kindle Fire HDX is aimed at a more premium market with high-resolution, pixel dense displays powered by a 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 series processor and equipped with 2GBs of RAM. Amazon claims that the new hardware is three times as powerful and up to 34% lighter than the previous generation, sporting a sleek, new magnesium design.

The 7-inch model comes equipped with a 1920×1200 display at 323 pixels-per-inch, putting it on par with Google’s Nexus 7. The 8.9-inch model, on the other hand, comes with a staggering 2560×1600 resolution display accounting for 339 pixels-per-inch. The built-in battery lasts for 11 hours of “mixed use,” and up to 17 hours for reading. The built-in camera has been upgraded to an 8-megapixel sensor for 1080p HD video and photos, plus LED flash and a ƒ2.2 lens for better low-light performance.

For gaming, Amazon claims the new integrated Adreno 330 processor delivers four times the graphics performance of the previous generation. On the software side, the HDX series heralds the arrival of Amazon’s Fire 3.0 OS, which includes UI tweaks and new features, like the ability to stream content to your TV via select Samsung HDTVs, PS3, and the PS4 when it launches in November.

Amazon is also introducing a new tech support feature called the Mayday Button, which will provide an on-screen guide to assist users with technical issues or instruct users how to use certain features of the device.

The 7-inch Kindle Fire HDX will be priced at $229 and will begin shipping on October 18th, while a 4G-enabled version will be available on November 14th for $329. The 8.9-inch model will come later, with Wi-Fi-only models shipping on November 7th and a 4G variant shipping December 10th, priced at $379 and $479, respectively. All models are available to pre-order today.
