Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9: On the heels of Apple Inc’s new, lighter iPad Air, Amazon has come out with a full-size tablet that weighs even less yet sports a sharper display and a lower price tag.
Although Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 hasn’t received as much attention as the iPad Air, it is emerging as the strongest challenger yet to Apple’s device.
The new Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 shares many of the features found in a smaller version that came out on October 18. A row of tablets at the top of the screen gives you quick access to Amazon services such as e-books, music, video and shopping. Recently used apps and content appear in the middle so you can return to them quickly. The bottom row has icons for frequently used apps such as email and the camera. The best part of the new Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 is its price. Amazon.com Inc began shipping last week, starting at $379. That’s cheaper than the new $399 iPad Mini.
