Review: Amazon Kindle Fire HD Tablet

Amazon’s new 7-inch Kindle Fire Tablet with 1280 x 800 screen real estate looks better than any other on the display front. Inside the device you’ll find a 1.2GHz dual-core CPU and a PowerVR GPU. Under the hood it also sports 1GB of RAM. The device is available in two storage capacities a 16GB or 32GB of storage.

Amazon has applied the anti-glare technology, but screen glare still remains a problem with this device. It also sports features such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi as well as an accelerometer, light sensor, and gyroscope.

The camera is placed in front of the screen and it can click photos at 720p resolution.

The Kindle Fire HD is the first device that comes with Dolby Digital and stereo speakers.

The Amazon Kindle Fire is running on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich which makes the device a little faster than its previous device.

The device claims a continuous 11 hours battery life in a single charge and measures 193 x 137 x 10.3mm in size. That means it is about 1.1 mm thinner than the predecessor, and at the same time it is wider and taller.

Verdict

Amazon has increased the speed and performance of the device, but ultimately you feel like this tablet just for shopping and browsing on Amazon.com. There is not a huge change in its size or design rather than the curved edges and smooth corners.
