Featured: Amazon’s 7-Inch Kindle Fire HD Launches Today

September 14, 2012 - Written By Mike Stenger

Last week, Amazon held their much buzzed about event launching several new Kindle Fire tablets dubbed HD this time around, and even introduced a new Kindle with better battery life and a lit up screen.

While the 8.9 inch Kindle Fire HD won’t be out until November 20th, the 16GB version of the 7-inch Kindle Fire HD is available starting today at just $199. The price is on par with Google’s Nexus 7 and this tablet is expected to be a very hot seller for the company. Unfortunately, if you want the 32GB version which comes in at $249, you’ll have to wait until October 25th.

I’m sure if Amazon could get that and the 8.9 inch version out much quicker, they would. Anyways, here’s a quick look at the specs:

  • 7 inch 1280×800 display (216 ppi)
  • 1.2GHz dual-core TI OMAP4460 processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16GB internal storage
  • Front-facing camera
  • Dolby surround sound audio
  • Dual-band, dual-antenna WiFi
  • Up to 11 hours of battery life

If you’re an Amazon customer and buy a lot of books and/or watch a good amount of movies or shows through a Prime account, the 7 inch Kindle Fire HD looks like a pretty good buy if you’re in the market for a new tablet.
