The Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9” is now ready to ship to the masses, and it is the large screen version of the best-selling HD tablet from Amazon, where it retails for $299 a pop. It will be made available at Best Buy from tomorrow onward, in addition to other retailers such as Staples and Radio Shack, while the Kindle Fire HD 8.9” 4G will ship from next week onward.

Dave Limp, Vice President, Amazon Kindle, said, “Kindle Fire HD has been Amazon’s best-selling product worldwide since launch, and that was before we even started shipping the best tablet we’ve ever built. With the holiday season upon us, we’re excited to make our $299 Kindle Fire HD 8.9” available early—we think customers are going to love web browsing, email, gaming, watching TV shows, reading magazines, and more on the large, stunning HD screen, with fast Wi-Fi and exceptional audio.”
