Kindle Fire HD, 7″

The Kindle Fire HD is according to Amazon’s CEO, Jeff Bezos the best tablet to hit our shelves with not only better hardware but also better services. As the name gives it away, the Kindle Fire HD has a great HD display with polarising filter and advanced anti-glare technology which enables great quality. The Kindle Fire HD does not only ensure great picture quality, it also promises great audio quality as it comes with dual stereo speakers which are supported by Dolby Audio. This unique partnership with Dolby promises for stunning surround sound never experienced on a tablet before.  The WIFI capabilities on the new Kindle Fire are also believed to be one of the best on the market thanks to the use of a double antenna. The Dual Antenna in combination with MIMO technology (Multiple In /Multiple Out) allows for smooth media streaming capabilities with limited interference. The Kindle Fire HD has an HDMI connection which enables connection to your TV easily. The Kindle Fire HD is easy to use, thin and light, has unlimited cloud storage, ultra fast web browsing capabilities and great access to LOVEFILM, Skype and hundreds of apps and games.
