Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 Tablet, Qualcomm Snapdragon, Fire OS, 8.9", Wi-Fi, 16GB, Black
The powerful Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 goes beyond with incredible technology to give you an amazing handheld experience. It features an astoundingly high resolution HDX display, fast quad-core processor and your very own technology support expert just a tap away with the Mayday button. And it's all packed within a 8.9-inch tablet that weighs less than 400g and with a battery life of up to a whopping 18 hours for unbelievable portability.
Packed with technology
The amazing HDX display on Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 combines a high 339 PPI pixel density with 100% sRGB colour accuracy to give you lifelike, crisp images that look just like the photographer or videographer intended. It also employs dynamic image contrast to automatically optimise the colour of each pixel based on the amount of light in your surroundings to make things easier to see in bright light.
Fire HDX 8.9 is powered by a lightning fast 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, providing 3 times the processing power of the previous generation Kindle Fire HD. Combined with 2GB of RAM, you'll enjoy faster app launches, faster website loading times, smoother multi-tasking and better overall performance.
Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 also features an Adreno 330 graphics processor to help you enjoy the latest games, MIMO Wi-Fi for a fast, uninterrupted connection to your wireless router and Dolby Digital Plus to help craft a world-class audio experience for your music, movies and games.
Help is just a tap away with Mayday
The new Mayday button on Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 will use the internet to connect you to an Amazon expert who can guide you through any problems you're having. Mayday is available 24/7, 365 days a year, for free and Amazon aim to respond to all calls within 15 seconds. You'll be able to see an Amazon Tech advisor on your screen, but they won't be able to see you.
Fire OS 3.0 Mojito
Kindle Fires run on Amazon's exclusive 'Fire' operating system. Fire OS uses Google Android and customises it to give you the fastest access to your favourite apps and Amazon services. Fire OS's home screen prioritises the apps and content you've used most recently to make them easily accessible in Carousel or Grid views. You can also swipe from app to app thanks to the side-swipe feature, which will flick between your open apps without having to navigate to the home screen.
Fire OS includes support for printing directly from you Fire and accessibility tools such as Screen Reader, Explore By Touch and Screen Magnifier to help you get the most out of your Kindle Fire HDX 8.9. It also comes with a variety of apps, including enhanced e-mail and Amazon's ultra-fast Silk web browser, which can help give you a browsing experience customised for your needs, whether it's in text only 'Reading Mode' or helping you access your favourite content in as few taps as possible.
Perfect for the entire family
Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 comes with plenty of apps adults to enjoy, however, it's also ideal for kids. Kindle FreeTime is a service designed to help parents look after their child's tablet experience and give them peace of mind. You can create a profile for each of your children and choose which content they have access to, giving them a kid-friendly design and access only to content you're allowing them to see. You can also set daily limits on how long they can use their Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 for, or restrict certain categories, like games, while leaving unlimited reading time. It's also light enough for a child to hold comfortably and features a durable display, so you can let your child play without worry.
Books, movies, music and more
As well as apps and games, available from the Amazon Appstore, Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 provides access to some of the best consumable content available, through service like the Kindle store for eBooks, Audible for Audiobooks, LOVEFiLM for movie streaming and Amazon MP3 for music.
