Amazon Launches Refreshed $139 Kindle Fire HD Tablet

While the Kindle Fire HDX is being touted as the solution to every problem, the Kindle Fire HD is a cheaper model that will appeal to the cash-challenged. The tablet just got upgraded and its price has been slashed to $140. The wonderful device has a 7-inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display screen that possesses crystal clear resolution. A speedier dual core, 1.5GHz processor rests in its center. And it carries dual speakers that lend it bombastic sound quality. 

While this critter won’t give the Nexus 7 a run for its money, it still has a lot going for it. The price factor remains its chief strength. At a hundred dollars less than the previous version, it is as if a heaven had just opened up for everyone else apart from the saints of economic bliss. 

Amazon founder and CEO, Jeff Bezos said, “Two years ago, we revolutionized the tablet industry with the breakthrough $199 price point for tablets—now we're doing it again with the $139 price point. $139 now gets you a 1280x800 216 ppi HD display, a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor, Fire OS 3.0, dual speakers with Dolby audio, vast selection and Amazon-exclusive features like Prime Instant Video downloads, Second Screen, Kindle FreeTime, X-Ray and more.”

The tablet is sleeker, smoother and weighs much less than it used to. The novel Fire OS 3.0 software is a regular feature of the Kindle Fire HD. It has been fondly nicknamed “Mojito”. The radically transformed body of the tablet speaks volumes about the changes made inside too. 

While Mayday doesn’t operate on the device, it already has a bunch of cool features that you can’t possibly resist. And the Origami Covers are another point to be noted by potential buyers of this tasteful surprise in technology launched by Amazon.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
