For those who are looking for a tablet with great features at a price that is more affordable than the current iPad. The Kindle Fire HD 8.9 has all the promises to be one of the best on the market today. Based on the highly successful Kindle series, the newest version has a myriad of features that take this beyond just reading eBooks.

The Kindle Fire HD 8.9 has a modern frame that allows for easy handling, but the real advantages can be found inside. While not quite as good as the latest iPad, there is little question that the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 packs plenty of great features.

Display

Complete with anti-glare technology and a polarizing filter, the 1920 x 1200 HD display screen can be read easily in all by the most direct sunlight. The screen itself is quite sharp and features deep, rich colors that can be viewed from many different angles.

Camera

This front-facing HD camera allows for both photos and videos as it makes Skype calls a synch. You can also upload photos to Facebook or other social media sites quite well also. The HD camera is easy to set up and use for those quick photos and video.

Sound

The sound coming from the twin speakers on the Kindle Fire HD is quite clear and good. On headphones the Dolby sound is even more crisp and distinct.

Integration

Perhaps at the top of list is the integration that the Kindle Fire has with many internet services from Facebook to Gmail, Hotmail, Twitter and more. This integration addresses one of the biggest uses of the Kindle, allowing you to coordinate all of your online activities through your tablet. Add to this the many built-in features and the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 is a truly impressive device.

Price

Perhaps the biggest advantage given all the features is the price. You can find one of these devices for a couple hundred dollars less than an iPad and yet it fulfills many of the needs that an iPad addresses like taking photos, reading books, playing games and browsing the web.

Other Features

When you add in all the features, services and advances, the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 is a remarkable device that has what many people are looking for in a tablet. Throw in the durability and convenience of this tablet, it’s no wonder that it has become quite popular. Add to this to the tens of millions of movies, music, magazines, books and audio books along with a wealth of popular applications and games, you have a tremendous tablet that provides a wealth of services and access for far less than what the latest iPad costs.

Disadvantages

Well, despite all the comparisons, it is not an iPad which still retains its spot as the single best table that can be purchased. Plus, the iPad does have more features and is frankly more versatile. But that advancement does come with a price so wise shoppers should look at what both have to offer before making that choice.

Conclusion

It’s safe to say that Kindle has come a long way from the simple, yet handy eBook reader from a few years ago to the advanced device that it is today. We can highly recommend the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 for those who want an economical tablet that has access to their favorite media on the internet.
