New Amazon Kindle Fire HD Tablet, TI OMAP, Fire OS, 7", 8GB, Black
The streamlined Kindle Fire HD is packed full of features at an incredible price. It packs a dual-core processor, amazing high definition screen, Dolby Audio technology and a long battery life to keep you entertained for longer without having to recharge. And with Amazon's Fire Operating System, accessing your favourite apps and games is simple and intuitive.
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 HD. 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 HD 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 HD 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.
