The Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 offers fast loading times on websites and a sharp picture. The slim lightweight construction measures 9.1 by 6.2 by .31 inches and is surprisingly solid and sturdy for a mere weight of 13.2 ounces. The case is made from soft-touch plastic with front and rear cameras on the top. The user-friendly design is easy to navigate. The Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 comes with a unique “Mayday” feature that allows the user to receive personal customer service instantly.

The Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 comes with dual-band WiFi and with a full 8 hours on battery time, you can work a full day on it. Turning the brightness down will yield a total of 12 hours on a fully charged battery. The 2.2GHz quad-core processor offers three times more power than the previous incarnation of Kindle Fire and has 2GB of RAM, along with Adreno 330 GPU. This is enough power and speed for excellent video and playing all kinds of games.

Another feature that many people appreciate is the FreeTime app, which is a parental control system that can be used to limit a child’s access to content such as videos through the tablet itself. Parents can even limit the amount of time their children can spend on the tablet per day and FreeTime does not allow them to go online at all.

The Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 is similar to the 7 aesthetically, it also has the same hardware and software. The main difference is that it has an 8 megapixel, rear-facing camera. In addition the speakers have been move to the top, so you will not block the sounds with your hands. (like I do)

The Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 start at over $300 (not including the DATA plan, choosing the right one is crucial – Click here for more info on DATA Plans), not a budget tablet, but overall a nice super-powerful device. Make sure to get the origami case, fully magnetic, very cool and easy to use.

It really has everything a casual user will want, the graphics and response time is great, while gaming is outstanding. The only current downside is the lack of available games, but Amazon is pushing its developers hard to get them out.

The 8.9 inch size is what gives its gorgeous display, great to watch videos. You also have the second screen feature allowing you to watch it on your TV at the same time.

For some people the best part of purchasing this Kindle tablet is that it gets them a $5 credit for the Amazon app store so they can get started playing their favorite games on the tablet.
