The new Kindle Fire HD is a full-featured HD tablet at an SD price. There's more to enjoy than ever before with a stunning HD display, faster performance, longer battery life, and lighter design

Faster Performance

Kindle Fire HD is over 60% faster than the previous generation Kindle Fire—a fast dual-core processor and an Imagination PowerVR 3D graphics core ensure games and video run smoothly.

Longer Battery Life

The Kindle Fire HD battery lasts longer than the previous generation Kindle Fire—up to 10 hours of reading, surfing the web on Wi-Fi, watching video, or listening to music.

Streamlined New Design

Kindle Fire HD features a smaller bezel, cleaner lines, and optimized button placements. This all-new, streamlined design helps Kindle Fire HD disappear in your hands, so you can get lost in your viewing.

Custom Dolby Audio

Kindle Fire HD uses the power of Dolby Digital Plus to create a world class audio experience. Kindle Fire HD is designed to automatically optimize the audio profile based on what you're doing (with or without headphones), such as watching a movie or listening to music.

Perfect for the entire family

Kindle FreeTime is free on every new Kindle Fire. Parents can create a profile for each of their children and choose what books, apps, games, and videos they want to give their kids access to. Parents can also set daily limits for tablet use, or restrict certain categories-like games and video-while leaving unlimited time for reading.

Stay connected

With every Kindle Fire you can stay connected with a cloud-optimized web browser, our new e-mail app and full social media integration.

Silk, a cloud-optimized web browser, is faster and packed with new features like Reading View that removes all unnecessary images and other website clutter for a clean, easy-to-read version of the site.

Decent, inexpensive, entry-level tablet

This is the next-generation Kindle Fire HD but with an updated operating system and new features, a redesigned shell (with the power and volume control buttons more readily accessible) and the power adapter included rather than as a separate $19.99 accessory. And all of this at a great price. When you consider the formerly separate cost of the adapter, you’d have spent $80 more just a couple of months ago for almost the same tablet.

First off, I would like to say this tablet is a great deal for just $139.99. I tried finding a tablet for under $100 that would just work properly, and to let you know, it’s impossible. Secondly, I want to tell you how I decided to buy this tablet.

This is my 6th Kindle Fire HD ….It’s a Love-Hate Relationship?

Yes..this is my 6th Kindle Fire HD 7 and I am sharing my story so you are not discouraged! My previous Kindle Fire performed well and I decided to upgrade to the newer model with 16GB. My 2nd Kindle Fire arrived as a Christmas gift and the first week I used it, the unit crashed. Ouch! My previous generation-now referred to as “Old Faithful” -never failed me. I followed the onscreen instructions for Kindle#2 and rebooted my device. After using my device for about 30 minutes, it crashed again and the on-screen instructions said to reboot the reset the entire device. I reset the device and lost all my settings, then again after using the device it crashed. I was not a happy customer so I called Kindle Support.

Great Tablet — Be Sure To Understand What You’re Getting!

Before purchasing the Kindle Fire, as I do with most purchases, I did a lot of research. This always includes reading other people’s reviews, especially on Amazon where there are so many helpful ones. I was somewhat disappointed/surprised to see that so many people clearly didn’t understand what they were buying! Almost all of the negative reviews for this tablet came from an obvious lack of understanding of the product, that could have been cleared up with a few minutes of research. To that end, I wanted to clear a few things up:

HD vs. HDX

If you are trying to decide which model to buy, I can only assist if you are like me. I previously owned the original Kindle Fire. I was very happy with it. But the ability to download a selection of prime videos in addition to the ability to “Fling” (Have not tried that feature yet)was a great incentive to upgrade. However, which device to get? HD or HDX. I’ve held both in my hands at a big box retailer. The HDX is indeed smaller, lighter, and the screen is crisper. The HD on the other hand is 60 bucks cheaper when comparing the 16gb models.

Good ole days meets modern technology–Advantages for Seniors

I don’t leave a whole lot of reviews… but after my dad’s experiences with the Kindle Fire, I thought this is something that others might want to consider as a family tool. My dad is 74 years old and is not techno savvy. Bless his heart, the dvd player still gives him troubles. He lives on his own which for a while made him somewhat depressed because he felt like his days had passed and no one appreciated his era anymore. I tried to get him to go to music/video stores to get some of his oldies but goodies tunes– but it was always more depressing for him to have the 19 year old clerk have no idea of who he was talking about. All of his favorite books had been deteriorating. So…. I got him a Kindle Fire. I preloaded it with some really neat country classic music like Anne Murray, C.W. McCall, and the early versions of Chris LeDeux. I also loaded it with some classic movies. I found an app that played serial radio westerns. I also found a ton of books by his favorite authors–audio and regular. He was a little intimidated at first, but this is one of his favorite things now. My teenage daughter gave him several tutorials. What was neat about the exchange was that my daughter was able to share things of “here and now” with him… but he was also able to share things with her “about the good ole days” as they were going through the books and the apps. He loved talking to her and she loved listening to the stories. He is not afraid to call her on the phone to learn new features. He’s now a pro at the weather app. He likes reading the customer reviews on the books that he likes because now he sees that his era really isn’t gone, it’s just in a different format and location– and people still appreciate the classics. He doesn’t have a computer or email– but each of our kindles do have an email address where you can email documents (including pictures)– so we can email pictures of the kids events or news articles that might be helpful to what he has going on. He doesn’t have to wait for it in the mail…it’s instant sharing. It’s also very easy for him to access because it pops up immediately when he turns on his Kindle. He doesn’t have internet at the house… so he goes to McDonalds to have coffee with his crowd and download his latest books. He is now the envy of his McDonalds crowd. We did put parental controls on his Kindle — but we explained that we did so that someone else couldn’t do things with it should he lose or misplace it– and we explained that we have the same controls on ours for the same reason…. so he didn’t feel like we were treating him like a kid. I know this is a long review, but the bottom like is that it opened up a whole new world for my dad that he thought was gone. It has also had an awesome side effect of really giving our entire family a way to share more ideas and experiences with him. I just thought others might like to know that this more than just a toy for the younger generation, or a tool for the working generation….it’s also a wonderful connection for seniors who need to know the are still remembered.
