Astonishingly Light

At 374 grams (384 grams for 4G version), Kindle Fire HDX 8.9" is 34% lighter than the previous generation. To achieve this revolutionary light weight, Amazon integrated the capacitive touch layer directly into the glass display and created a unique magnesium unibody from a single piece of machined magnesium and a blend of glass and nylon - the same material used in high-performance race cars. The result is a light, hard-wearing, portable tablet.

Smaller Bezel, Cleaner Lines

Kindle Fire HDX 8.9" is engineered for increased usability and features an all-new design with a smaller bezel, cleaner lines, and optimised button and charger port placements. Kindle Fire HDX 8.9" is designed to disappear in your hands, so you can lose yourself in your viewing experience.

Breakthrough HDX Display

Kindle Fire HDX 8.9" has the highest resolution (2560x1600) and the best pixel density (339 ppi) of any Kindle Fire tablet, providing an incredible multimedia experience. The HDX display features over four million pixels for vivid, lifelike images that go beyond standard HD.

Perfect Colour

Both the 7" and 8.9" Kindle Fire HDX displays feature perfect colour (100% sRGB), displaying images and videos as the photographer or videographer intended.

Better Viewing Indoors and Out

The HDX display features dynamic image contrast, a unique feature that automatically optimises the colour of each pixel based on the amount of light in your surroundings. This makes images and videos even easier to see under any lighting conditions, including outdoors.

Powerful Quad-Core Processor

Kindle Fire HDX tablets are the first tablets to be powered by the 2.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, making them the first to clock in at over 2 GHz. This provides 3x more processing power than the previous generation Kindle Fire HD and, combined with 2 GB of RAM, provides faster app launching times, quicker website loading times, smoother multi-tasking and better overall performance.

Console-Quality Graphics

The new Adreno 330 graphics processor on Kindle Fire HDX delivers high frame rates and console quality graphics  4x the performance of the previous generation Kindle Fire HD.

Customised Dolby Audio

Kindle Fire HDX uses the power of Dolby Digital Plus to create a world-class audio experience. Dolby Digital Plus includes technology that adjusts volume, creates virtual surround sound and delivers easier-to-understand dialogue in films and TV shows. Kindle Fire HDX is designed to optimise the audio profile automatically based on what you're doing (with or without headphones), such as watching a film, listening to music or talking on Skype.

Uncompromised Battery Life

With advanced power management technology, Kindle Fire HDX delivers an uncompromised 12 hours of reading, web surfing over Wi-Fi, video watching or music playback. When you're just reading, Kindle Fire HDX powers down unused system components automatically, extending battery life to 18 hours.

Rear-Facing Camera

Kindle Fire HDX 8.9" features an 8MP rear-facing camera that allows for high-resolution photos and 1080p HD video. The rear camera includes an LED flash, Electronic Image Stabilisation to reduce camera shake, a wide-aperture lens and support for panorama and High Dynamic Range (HDR) imaging. Our updated camera app also includes photo editing features and a new camera mode with filmstrip.

Camera-Ready Case

The Origami cover for the 8.9" Fire HDX comes with a customised sliding feature that quickly exposes the rear-facing camera and launches the camera application automatically, so you don't miss a great photo opportunity. Learn more

Front-Facing Camera

Both the 7" and 8.9" Kindle Fire HDX tablets have a front-facing 720p HD camera, perfect for Skype HD video calls and taking photos to share via Facebook or e-mail.

Edit & Share Photos

Our beautifully designed photo app makes it easy to view your albums or watch personal videos. And sharing your photos couldn't be easier—simply tap on individual images to e-mail them to anyone you like. Editing on your Kindle Fire is simple—just select a photo to begin editing.

Live Support with Mayday

NEW—Simply tap the Mayday button to get free assistance from an Amazon expert who can guide you through any feature by drawing on your screen, walking you through how to do something yourself or doing it for you —whatever works best. Mayday is available 24x7, 365 days a year, and it's free. Throughout the process, you will be able to see your Amazon Tech advisor live on your screen, but they won't see you. Fifteen seconds or less is the Mayday response time goal.

Fast, Powerful Wi-Fi

When it comes to HD content, bandwidth is everything. Without it, you get video buffering, slow downloads and dropped connections. Kindle Fire HDX solves this issue by using state-of-the-art dual-band, dual-antenna Wi-Fi. With this, you'll enjoy fewer dropped connections and faster media streaming, plus you'll be able to go further away from your wireless hotspot than with other tablets.

The Latest 4G Technology

Kindle Fire HDX is 4G ready, featuring the latest 4G LTE technology for ultra-fast mobile broadband, letting you connect to the internet, stream and download at speeds that are even faster than Wi-Fi. Kindle Fire HDX with optional 4G/3G connectivity supports multiple bands, ensuring that you always have the best and fastest possible connection.

Kindle Fire HDX is compatible with multiple mobile network operators, including Vodafone. When you’re not in a 4G coverage area, you can still connect to a mobile network to use your device.

Vodafone Internet Starter Pack for Kindle Fire

You have the option to buy a Vodafone 3G data plan directly from your device for just £25, which includes 5GB of 3G UK data for up to 90 days, 20GB of Amazon Cloud storage and a £5 credit for the Amazon Appstore. You will also have the option to move to Vodafone's Ultrafast 4G network once you've purchased your Vodafone Internet Starter Pack.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kindle Fire's big brother 23 Dec 2013
By TonyD TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Configuration:Without Special Offers| Connectivity Technology:Wi-Fi + 4G LTE (Vodafone)| Digital Storage Capacity:64|Verified Purchase
Decided to upgrade to the larger screen and faster processing from my 7"KFHD and so far am delighted with my purchase.

So, some points;

- the high output charger is included in the box - well done Amazon
- the screen is fantastic, both in terms of the larger size and picture quality.
- streaming video quality is superb.
- sound quality from the two speakers is excellent.
- the tablet itself is very slim and light to hold - any extra weight comes with a protective cover, which I would suggest is a must for a high value piece of kit.
- I have no issues at all with the power and volume buttons being on the back; in fact I think they are more intuitive to use there.
- I bought the biggest on-board storage as there is no on-board expansion capability.
- an extra tenner to remove the adverts on start-up is worth paying - the default images are very good.
- immediate access to all the music, books and apps I have ever bought from Amazon.
- Very fast download of stuff over my home Wi-Fi network.
- the Silk browser has been improved, and internet pages load very quickly.
- simplicity itself to set up my e-mail accounts, and I was up and running in a couple of minutes.
- both front and rear-facing cameras are very good, and there is a pre-loaded app to control them (unlike on the earlier KFHD).
- downloading the excellent OfficeSuite Pro7 app allows me to view and easily edit documents and presentations that I give for work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Significant improvement on Fire HD 20 Nov 2013
Configuration:Without Special Offers| Connectivity Technology:Wi-Fi Only| Digital Storage Capacity:64|Verified Purchase
First some context. I use computers all the time when I was working and now that I have retired and spend much of my time researching, writing and publishing books. I use a PC much of the time but when travelling find that a tablet is clearly easier to transport and provides the accessibility I need for emails, the Internet, access to film and books/magazines. I initially purchased an Asus Transformer for this purpose, then the more transportable Kindle HD 7" and now the HDX. What I want from a tablet is reliability, good battery life and ease of use to let me do the things I want to do.

The new HDX certainly fulfils those needs. Though I had a slight problem with setup that I could not sort out myself and needed telephone support from Amazon (excellent, quick solution), it proved remarkably simple and all the documents and apps that I had on the HD were there ready to use. Ditto the books that I had already purchased. One recurrent theme in American reviews and, it seems to be unjustifiably low scores as a result, is the question of office apps on the system. It was simply a case of adding a free word processing, presentation, spreadsheet app and the problem is solved.

The HDX is an excellent piece of kit. I went for the 64GB storage as there are no card slots (something for another incarnation I hope) and this is ample for my needs. The screen is excellent, apps load quickly (both to get on the system and then once loaded), Silk has been improved and is much quicker. The tablet is light and sleek and is easy to hold in one hand, though I find it better to rest it on something for ease of use. The cameras are good and video streams like a dream.

4.0 out of 5 stars Improved User Experience 30 Dec 2013
By S. Porter VINE VOICE

I've been using the Kindle Fire for some time now and have been largely happy, however, within a few moments of using the new Kindle Fire HDX, the improvements are palpable and pleasing.

The first thing to comment on, is the weight, despite the larger screen, it is now comfortable to wield one handed and significantly lighter than the older Fire and Fire HD. The shell is slimmer and has a nice soft grip finish on the rear and beveled edges which make it more comfortable to hold, and your fingers will glide effortlessly across the screen which is notably more responsive. The bookshelf interface has been significantly improved (although I'd like more flexibility on how to sort my files and apps - eg, I'd like my current book to remain at the front of the queue even if I decide to download a slew of new titles for later). If you are a keen reader, but find your wallet is a little on the lean side, you'll can also find a substantive catalogue of free or heavily discounted titles to browse through which should have something to suit all tastes.

If you've never used the Lovefilm service, there is a 30 day free trial for you to sample. Streaming is superb and I've not has a single issue with buffering films of TV programmes I've opted to watch. [My main gripe with Lovefilm is that the content is mostly quite old, but I still found stuff I wanted to see (eg Vikings) and the range of HD content has improved.] The display is just as superb and the clarity and depth of colour and detail are superb.
