In the busy IFA 2012 week, many device manufacturers try to pull out the stops with their newest devices, including Amazon with its Kindle Fire HD. Available in two display size options, 7” and 8.9” both with 1920 x 1200 pixel resolution, Amazon wants to create best tablets at any price. Those who are into pixel density would find the 254ppi pixel density acceptable for a tablet, while the IPS and “advanced true-wide polarizing filter” technologies allow the device to deliver true color reproduction when views from any angle.
Backing up the exquisite display is a fast TI OMAP 4470 processor which compares favorably with Nvidia Tegra 3 “Kai” used by Google Nexus 7, a reference Jelly Bean tablet. Amazon hasn’t been neglected the sound solution either as the Dolby Digital Plus is currently exclusive to the Kindle Fire HD. The 7” version will ship at September 14th and start at $199, while the 8.9” will ship at November 20th and start at $299. An LTE version of the 8.9 Kindle Fire HD comes with 32GB of onboard storage and will sell competitively at $499.
