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!
