Amazon Fire HD 8 (2015 Model)
In September 2015, Amazon refreshed its lineup. The Fire HD 8 ($150 MRSP; 8GB storage) was announced alongside the Fire HD 10 ($230; 16GB). Neither was dramatically different from previous models. The biggest change was an effort to bring them up to date in terms of thinness – they had slimmed to a mere 7.7mm.
An ultra-low-cost Fire tablet was priced at $50.
Amazon Fire HD 7
In late 2014, Amazon released the 3rd generation of Fire HD devices (the 4th generation of Fire tablet overall). They came with 6 and 7-inch screens.
The Kindle Fire HD 6″ was well-made, boasting gorilla glass and a sturdy body that came in five colors. It wasn’t the thinnest or lightest device out there, but it felt like a premium device. Fitted with a 1,280-by-800 pixel display, it was powered by a 1.5-gigahertz quad-core processor that delivered much more performance than a typical tablet of its price point.
While the older Kindle Fires sometimes felt like nothing more than a tool for Amazon to push sales of its content and other products, the new 6 and 7-inches had a lot to offer outside basic content consumption.
Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 (2013)
No products found.
In some ways, the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 was simply a larger version of its seven-inch cousin. The devices were similarly designed, with the HDX 8.9 receiving the same slimming-down as the HDX 7. It was thinner and lighter than the Kindle Fire HD 8.9, and it felt even more like a premium device.
The Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 was powered by the same 2.2-gigahertz Snapdragon 800 chip found in the HDX 7, and it was every bit as snappy and responsive. The headliner, however, was the spectacular 2,560-by-1,600 display. Not only was it razor-sharp, but it was also vibrant, bright, and accurate. It was a joy to behold.
Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7 (2013)
No products found.
The Amazon Kindle Fire brand consistently delivered affordable, high-quality tablets, and the third generation was no exception. The Kindle Fire HDX 7 was substantially lighter and thinner than the previous Kindle Fire HD, but it still retained the durable, high-quality construction.
The new “mayday” feature allowed users to quickly connect with a representative who could control the device, draw on the screen, and otherwise assist with any questions or issues.
The 1,920-by-1,200 display improved as well, but arguably the most significant change was the inclusion of a lightning-fast 2.2-gigahertz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor.
The Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9-inch and 8.9-inch 4G LTE (2012)
The Kindle Fire HD 8.9-inch came in two versions. There was the Wi-Fi only version like the other Kindle Fires, but there was also a 4G LTE version for cellular networks. Other than the larger size, the 8.9-inch fire also upgraded many of the specifications of the 7-inch HD. The 1920×1200 display was capable of 1080p viewing.
It also used a faster 1.5GHz dual-core processor. Other than that, it was much the same as the 7-inch. However, the LTE version came in 32GB and 64GB models compared with the Wi-Fi version’s 16 and 32.
The Amazon Kindle Fire HD 7-inch (2012)
The Kindle Fire HD represented the second generation of the Kindle Fire line of tablets. It improved on the design and features of the previous tablet in almost every way from its designs to its internals. The 7-inch HD looked much like the original Fire but was slightly lighter in weight.
The LCD’s resolution of 1280×800 allowed for HD viewing in up to 720p. This Fire HD used an upgraded version of the previous Kindle’s dual-core processor running at the speed of 1.2GHz with 1GB of RAM. For internal storage, there was both a 16 and 32GB model.
This time around, the operating system was a customized version of Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). This Fire HD had dual-band Wi-Fi for better reception and included Bluetooth, a feature missing from previous iterations.
The Fire HD 7-inch included a micro-USB port and added a mini-HDMI connection. Sound updates included a new Dolby audio engine and a built-in microphone. Another addition missing from the previous version was the front-facing camera. The battery life of the Fire HD rated at 10-hours.
The Upgraded Amazon Kindle Fire 2nd (2012)
Amazon released an updated version of the original first-generation model in September 2012. Many of the specifications of the upgraded model were similar to the original. The main difference was a faster dual-core processor at 1.2GHz, double the RAM at 1GB and improved battery life.
It also featured a few new Amazon applications for reading, listening to audiobooks, and watching movies.
The Original Amazon Kindle Fire (2011)
The original Amazon Kindle Fire was a 7-inch tablet with 1024×600 IPS LCD display capable of 16-million colors. The tablet came with 8GB of storage and 512MB of internal RAM and a 1GHz dual-core processor. The installed OS was a heavily customized version of Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) which included access to the Amazon Appstore and other Amazon-branded applications.
It featured built-in Wi-Fi and a micro-USB port for connectivity. Battery life for the Kindle Fire was rated at 7.5-hours.
The OS was not renamed Fire OS until later, and the manufacturing was handled by Quanta Computer, which was also involved in the BlackBerry PlayBook range, which inspired some of the original Kindle’s design.
Sales were strong, beating the most optimistic estimates, and the Kindle Fire quickly became the second best-selling tablet after the iPad. Critics were unhappy with some restrictions Amazon placed on the device – specifically, users upgrading from the standard Kindle e-readers were not able to download books from Project Gutenberg or Google Books – vast sources of free material.
