Amazon Kindle Fire HD Release Date

Amazon Kindle Fire HD Price

Like always, Amazon makes the Kindle Fire HD price super attractive since they are able to subsidize the cost by displaying ads and selling content.  This is especially true for the entry level model that starts at $139.  It will be interesting to see which model (which price point) will be the most popular.

My Initial Impressions

I own the current generation Kindle Fire HD and while I like it, I wish it had the battery life and stand by time of my iPad.  These new Kindle Fire HDs are expected to deliver better battery life and performance than the previous models. I’m ordering one right now so I will let you know.  Right now, these tablets look like winners!
