There are many Android tablets in the market today, but what Amazon has done to differentiate themselves is that instead of offering stock Android, they have created a fork version of Android that doesn’t exactly feel like Android, and give customers easy access to Amazon’s own store where they can purchase books, videos, songs, and so on.
Now for those who are interested in seeing what else Amazon has to offer on the tablet front, you might be interested to learn that Amazon has recently announced two new Kindle Fire tablets – the new Kindle Fire HDX and the new Kindle Fire HD. The former will be priced starting at $379 while the latter will be priced starting at $99 and will see a release on the 21st of October and 2nd of October respectively.
Diving into the specs, the new Kindle Fire HDX will feature a display with a pixel density of 339ppi. It will be powered by a 2.5GHz processor and according to Amazon, will sport a graphics processor that is 70% faster than its predecessor. The tablet will also feature new speakers that are apparently twice as loud as the iPad Air and will be powered by Fire OS 4 “Sangria” which is based on Android 4.4 KitKat.
Next up are the new Kindle Fire HD tablets which will come in 6-inch or 7-inch varieties. Both models will sport the same hardware specs, such as quad-core processors and a similar design. They will also feature both front and rear-facing cameras and are thinner than their predecessors. The 6-inch model will start at $99 which we have to admit is a pretty good deal if you’re looking for a tablet on the cheap.
