Amazon not only slings Oprah Book Club approved books; they sling their own lectronics. And now they’re ready to launch the Kindle Fire HD, an improved, higher definition version of their much loved original Kindle Fire.
The Kindle Fire HD comes in three versions: one sporting an 1920 x 1200 resolution 8.9 inch screen, another sporting the same sized screen and 4G LTE wireless connection, and the other equipped with a smaller 7 inch screen with a resolution of 1280 x 800. Other than the screen difference, everything else is pretty much the same. There’s a built in, front facing camera with which to get your narcissism on (or make Skype calls….whatever floats your boat), dual stereo speakers with Dolby Digital Plus, and dual-band 2.4GHz and 5.0GHz that are supposed to increase wireless download speed by up to 41% (making the wait to catch up on episodes of True Blood that much easier). Powering the tablet is a Texas Instrument OMAP 4470 processor and the latest version of Google’s Android operating system, Ice Cream Sandwich (or version 4.0 for those adverse to confectionary delights).
The Kindle Fire HD will be available on November 20th, just in time for the holiday shopping season (hint hint). It’ll run you anywhere from $159 to $499.
