It's an HDX! Amazon Welcomes New Kindles to Its Tablet Family

Amazon introduced two new devices to its Kindle Fire HD lineup — a 7-inch Kindle Fire HDX and an 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HDX — that are intended to replace not only your tablet, but also your work laptop.

With a faster processor, better GPU, and more memory, the HDX tablets have enough power to keep users productive at work and entertain them at home. Amazon didn't just improve its hardware, either. A new feature called Mayday offers 24x7x365 tech support and peace of mind, and it's built into every Kindle Fire HDX.

The company has established its ereader dominance with the eink Kindle Paperwhite — but can it usurp the high-definition tablet market, too? The 8.9-inch HDX is slightly more expensive than the bestselling iPad Mini but boasts higher resolution, longer battery, and better rear camera. Learn more about the new Kindle Fire HDX, and let us know if you'll be trading in your iPad for Amazon's new tablets for the holidays.
