"...one of the most gorgeous screens I have seen in a long time." – GigaOM
"It's definitely the 7-inch Android tablet I'll be recommending to friends." – Mashable
"It's called Mayday, and it's the most remarkable customer service tool I've ever seen." – The Verge
"The Kindle Fire HDX delivers incredible value for its price..." – CNET
Kindle Fire HDX tablets are the first tablets to be powered by the 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, making them the first to clock in at over 2GHz. It provides 3X more processing power than the previous-generation Kindle Fire HD and, combined with 2GB of RAM, provides faster app launches, faster website load times, smoother multi-tasking, and better overall performance.
The new Adreno 330 graphics processor on Kindle Fire HDX delivers high frame rates and console quality graphics – 4X the performance of the previous generation Kindle Fire HD.
Kindle Fire HDX uses the power of Dolby Digital Plus to create a world class audio experience. Dolby Digital Plus includes technology that adjusts volume, creates virtual surround sound, and delivers easier-to-understand dialogue in movies and TV shows. Kindle Fire HDX is designed to automatically optimize the audio profile based on what you're doing (with or without headphones), such as watching a movie, listening to music, or talking on Skype.
With advanced power management technology, Kindle Fire HDX delivers an uncompromised 11 hours of reading, surfing the web on Wi-Fi, watching video, or listening to music. When you're just reading, Kindle Fire HDX automatically powers down unused system components, extending battery life to 17 hours.
Kindle Fire HDX has a high resolution display (1920 x 1200) and high pixel density (323 pixels per inch) for an incredible multimedia experience. The display features over 2 million pixels for vivid, lifelike images that go beyond standard HD.
Both the 7" and 8.9" Kindle Fire HDX displays feature perfect color (100% sRGB), displaying images and videos as the photographer or videographer intended.
The HDX display features dynamic image contrast, a unique feature that automatically optimizes the color of each pixel based on the amount of light in your surroundings. This makes images and videos even easier to see in any lighting conditions, including outdoors.
New – Simply tap the "Mayday" button to be connected for free to an Amazon expert who can co-pilot you through any feature by drawing on your screen, walking you through how to do something yourself, or doing it for you – whatever works best. Mayday is available 24/7, 365 days a year, and it's free. Throughout the process, you will be able to see your Amazon Tech advisor live on your screen, but they won't see you. 15 seconds or less is the Mayday response time goal.
Kindle Fire HDX is easy to use right out of the box. But when you need extra assistance, the "Mayday" button is there.
Both the 7" and 8.9" Kindle Fire HDX tablets have a front-facing 720p HD camera, perfect for Skype HD video calls and taking photos to share via Facebook or e-mail.
Kindle Fire makes it easy to keep favorite photos and personal videos close at hand. Download your albums from Facebook, or add photos and personal videos (up to 20 minutes long) to Amazon Cloud Drive from your PC, Mac, or phone. Editing on your Kindle Fire is just as easy – simply select a photo to begin editing or use one of many popular apps.
When it comes to HD content, bandwidth is everything. Without it, you get video buffering, slow downloads, and dropped connections. Kindle Fire HDX solves this issue by using state-of-the-art dual-band, dual-antenna Wi-Fi. With this, you'll enjoy fewer dropped connections and faster media streaming, plus you'll be able to go further from your wireless hotspot than with other tablets.
Kindle Fire HDX features the latest 4G LTE technology for ultra-fast mobile broadband, letting you connect to the Internet, stream, and download at speeds even faster than Wi-Fi. Kindle Fire HDX supports multiple bands ensuring that you always have the best and fastest possible connection on AT&T's or Verizon's expansive 4G LTE wireless network.
New Kindle Fire tablets are powered by the latest version of Fire OS 3.0 – "Mojito" – which starts with Android and adds cloud services, a content-forward user interface, built-in media libraries, productivity apps, and low-level platform enhancements to integrate Amazon's digital content and improve performance for Kindle Fire tablets.
New 1-Tap Archive frees up space on your Kindle Fire by identifying items that have not been used recently and provides a 1-tap option to quickly move them to your cloud for later retrieval. Optimized Download ensures the performance of the app you are using isn't impacted by background download activity.
Fire OS 3.0 includes an enhanced, content-first home screen that allows users to easily switch between viewing their recent content and apps in Carousel View or favorites in Grid View. The new Quick Switch feature uses a side swipe gesture to easily move between multiple apps or individual content items without navigating home. On tablets with Special Offers, new Kindle-exclusive, limited-time deals are available – they are similar to Lightning Deals that run on Amazon.com, but with even greater savings.
Blind and visually impaired customers can leverage new and improved accessibility tools such as Screen Reader, Explore by Touch, and Screen Magnifier. Screen Reader features IVONA's award-winning natural language text-to-speech voice.
Kindle 7" HDX
This review is from: Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7" Tablet – 16GB WiFi without Special Offers
Pros: Quad-Core 2.2GHz CPU, >1080p Resolution, NO 'Special Offers' (no 'pushed' adverts), GREAT Price, Live 7/24 Free Help, Lighter than my 7" HD, Excellent battery life (optimized for reading). Free shipping from Newegg - faster than the OEM's free variety. Like the HD and Paperwhite models, it works perfectly with Calibre using Windows 7 (unlike the somewhat twitchy iPads). Also included was the OEM's H/Duty (15A, 5V) charger - the std. charger for the Kindle (5A, 5V) lists at $20 on the OEM's web site.
Cons: Would have LOVED a 32Gig (storage) model as I use mostly third party product which can't be stored on the OEM's Cloud. 16Gigs is okay if you use live streaming (which I don't to keep Wi-Fi off and extend battery life). No OEM fitted case, but I got a great deal ($17, net) for a very robust 3rd party case (w/excellent stylus) from the OEM website.
Other Thoughts: I own the original 7" Kindle Fire and have a 7" HD. I have bought 9" HD's for both my wife and my mother and also the dedicated 6" Paperwhite reader for my wife. Would like to see the 9" HDX. This is the ONLY Kindle I have ever seen available from Newegg. More PLEASE! Am hoping that >1st. Sept (when next years models are typically announced) Newegg will start to carry the full line of these amazing tablets that offer serious competition to Apple's over-priced iPads!
